TNA Says: “The Charismatic Enigma” Jeff Hardy made his return on Sunday at “Slammiversary”, teaming with Magnus and Samoa Joe to beat The Aces and Eights in a six-man war! What’s next for Hardy as he rejoins TNA in the war against The Aces? Tune in and find out!
Best Case Scenario: Hardy cuts his signature 90-second promo about how “sick” it is to be back in TNA and how much he missed the “creatures.” He is interrupted by A.J. Styles, who refuses to talk to him, but beats him down and gives him the Calf Killer submission to start a feud.
Worst Case Scenario: Hardy cuts a 91-plus second promo and enters into a feud with (a) any former WWE superstar or (b) a lower-tier member of Aces & Eights (oh wait, most of them are former WWE superstars!)
Dave Says: Hardy’s return at Slammiversary was relatively unhyped, considering he was the company’s centerpiece prior to losing the title to Bully Ray. This episode of Impact needs to get him back on track with a clear mission statement, whether it’s chasing the title, and by extension Aces & Eights, or working in a more personal secondary feud where he can be the whole story.
