    So either Jeff hardy doesn't draw or the wedding turned off fans, but seeing as the wedding drew. I'd say it was hardy and people wanted to see if hardy wasn't champ.

    • hangers says:

      Cant read too much into the early part of the show. Id rather see Jeff Hardy any day of the week than Hogan ramble on..

  2. Mr. Excitement says:

    Hardy is boring.

  3. JoeWrestling says:

    Jeff Hardy isn't that bad, but what's the comments all about? It says "one of their best Q1 ratings in the new timeslot", so what's the knock on the rating?

  4. Buff Daddy says:

    You can’t judge the first quarter off of who was part of it. If it worked then the second quarter would have drawn. The first quarter shows how well the show was advertised.

  5. purpleurkel says:

    I can't hate hardy..just because of his past highlight reel (table matches, swanton on abyss off the stage, etc)

    But his matches are predictable now. Time to turn heel or change up the moves.
