Jeff Hardy Update, New York Mets Reliever Takes The Field As Hulk Hogan

- As we broke exclusively here on Premium last night, Jeff Hardy was unable to work last night's Impact Wrestling taping due to food poisoning. The hope is he will be able to work tonight as they couldn't wrap next week's show (taped last night) because of his illness.

- Wrestling News World reader Shawn Anderson sent word that New York Mets reliever Tim Byrdak took the field as Hulk Hogan yesterday. Click here for more coverage as well as a photo.

    And by food, they mean drugs.

      Bit presumptuous. While its possible it’s also possible it is just good poisoning. Gotta ask though, how did Hardy getting food poisononing become a premium article? :-S

    Food poisoning, eh? Sure…
    Some sort of 'magic' cookie perhaps? Or a mushroom pizza?
    Strange how that's my, and probably a lot of other people's, first thought, but then it's expected.
    Ultimately I hope he's ok.

    Uh-oh. “Food poisoning” e’h? I sure hope that’s all that this was. But from now until the day Jeff Hardy retires from wrestling, and is no longer in the public eye, anytime something like this happens and he is unable to perform there is going to be accusations of drug use being the cause rather than an actual illness, and that’s pretty sad. It also has to be uber frustrating for Jeff. Because if I’m not mistaken he is on probation for his last trouble. If that’s the case he will be strictly tested quite frequently by the state. So if there is any drug use going on it won’t be hard to find out about because Jeff will be doing time in the big house for a probation violation. That’s why I really think that he has food poisoning or something similar. At least I hope that’s the case and he’s not dumb enough to blow his last chance.

      This isn't Hardy's last chance. tna will give him as many chances are they can cause unlike WWE, tna is desperate for anything in the way of ratings or merchandise sales.

    Food poisoning?? Is that what the kids are calling it these days?
