Jeff Hardy suffered a nasty fall from the top of the cage that supposedly ‘knocked him out cold’ during a match on Friday’s TNA Lockdown taping in New York … but a new report says the whole thing was planned by the executives at TNA.
At first TMZ reported that the fall ‘didn’t go as planned,’ and that the wrestling star has scheduled an appointment this week to undergo a head scan. But according to PW Insider, the fall did go as planned, and Hardy is probably never going to see a head specialist:
The spot was completely planned and is Hardy’s storyline injury exit from the company as he cannot travel to the UK tour due to his 2009 drug conviction as it prevents him from entering that country. The “injury” is TNA’s way to explain why he won’t be on the multiple weeks of TV that will be taped next month in Great Britain.
PW Insider adds that if Hardy were truly injured in the fall, ‘TNA certainly would not have gone through with James Storm then attacking Hardy at the top of the entrance stage as he was being walked out by TNA security.’
… and Hardy finished the match.
