According to reports, Jeff Hardy showed up in bad shape at Final Resolution.
Management almost had to go with an alternate plan for the main event title match. They were also going to put the TNA World Heavyweight Championship on another wrestler.
Had Hardy ruined things, TNA would have had no choice but to go in a different direction for 2011. Hardy would no longer be part of the equation. Not only would it give the company a bad image for utilizing someone with a lot of issues, but it would also be difficult for everyone to rely on someone like that.
If Hardy were taken out of the picture, then someone else would have to step up and fill his role.
First of all, Immortal would become the first thing on the priority list. TNA would have to find someone else to fill the central character in the stable. If they are unable to do that, then the stable would seriously be in danger of being extinct.
TNA would also have to find someone else to utilize as the world champion. This could be a good time for the company to pull the trigger on pushing Matt Morgan as the champion. He's got all the requirements to fill that role. Mr. Anderson would also get considerations for the top spot as well.
Without the "Charismatic Enigma" around, then TNA would have to seriously rethink their decision on his brother Matt Hardy. As of right now, the company appears to be very interested in bringing him on board to work a program with his brother. If that's not on the table, then Matt's value is considerably less.
Hopefully, things aren't as bad as they seem because Hardy is a valuable commodity to wrestling.
