COLUMN: "Shooting from the Hip" #4 by Tony Mirabella

(Sigh) Matthew, Matthew, Matthew. In case you’re wondering what the Hell I’m talking about, last Tuesday Matt Hardy was arrested after he ran his car into a tree. Authorities are saying he was not drunk; however he appeared to “have taken some type of impairing substance.” If you look at Hardy’s mugshot, you can see he’s got one eye in China and the other in Saint Louis.

Now, we have learned he has been fired by TNA Impact Wrestling. Good for them! It’s about time Dixie Carter got wise and actually fired someone who would be nothing but a detriment to her company. I need to make something brutally clear to everyone who is reading this. I have absolutely NO tolerance for people who operate a motor vehicle under the influence of ANY drug, including alcohol. In 2010, 10,839 people were killed in the United States because of drunk driving. I cannot find any statistics on how many people were killed or hurt by drivers impaired by other substances. The bottom line is Matt Hardy could have killed someone. He could have killed me. He could have killed you. He could have taken the life of a child. Luckily, all he hit was a tree and his zonked-out head.

What really floors me about this senseless bastard is that after all this went down, Matt was on the internet conveying how wonderful an experience almost dying can be. And I quote,

"It was the most amazing thing I've every experience, I felt like I'd just received the blood of an angel flowing inside me-I know this sounds crazy! Due to these, I only have urges to help people. And miraculously, all my vices are gone."

Perhaps your vices are gone because you know you might be joining your brother in a game of Drop the Soap soon. Is this idiotic revelation not a testament to how messed up this guy is? A few years ago, while in a car with my Mom and Uncle, we almost got killed by an ambulance which decided to cross into the opposing lane of traffic. We literally came feet from a head on collision with a much bigger vehicle. Later that night, I was happy to be alive. I didn’t hit the internet and talk about how wonderful it was watching the Grim Reaper masturbate on the side of the road as I almost died.

I feel very strongly about this. If you are caught driving under the influence, you should be charged with attempted murder, period. Your license should be taken forever, and you should be punished to the fullest extent of the law.

Everyone says Matt and Jeff need help. Here’s the deal. No drug addict can be helped unless they want to be helped. Help is out there for them. The WWE has offered rehab to any of its current or past stars that need it. Needing it and wanting it are two completely different things.

Now, I know there is, has been, and always will be drug problems in wrestling. But the Hardys have taken it to the next level. If it’s not Jeff staggering to the ring, it’s Matt wrapping his car around a tree like a Taco Bell burrito. I want to reiterate. He could have killed someone! Now, I’m not a prude. I understand some wrestlers work 300+ days a year. If a guy wants to go back to his hotel room after a show, and light a joint or drink a few beers to unwind, I don’t have an issue with it. But, stay in your hotel room! Don’t put other people’s lives in danger!

Reading this story really ticked me off, especially hearing this idiot describe a nearly fatal car accident as an enlightening experience. Matt is done with wrestling. He’s burned his bridges, most likely by slamming into their support beams with his car. The WWE isn’t going to take him back after the crap he pulled there, and Impact Wrestling would be fools to ever look at this guy again. I have no sympathy for him and he deserves whatever he gets.

Wrestling needs to take a strong stance on this. If you put innocent people at risk, you should be blacklisted from the business. Then again, the Hardys have no problem putting people at risk. Jeff didn’t care if he paralyzed Sting botching a move while high, so why should I think his brother would feel any different about possibly killing a family on their way home from the movies.

And, let me just say this. I know Matt and Jeff like to call people out on the internet. I’m not a hard man to find. If you have a problem with anything I said, just bring it! But, please, take a cab.
