Shortly after Matt Hardy posted a video message on Youtube, saying “goodbye” and seemingly posting a suicide note, two people close the former WWE and TNA wrestler are denying the claims. Former WWE wrestler Gregory “Hurricane” Helms said to not “believe the hype.” Helms wrote, “Don’t believe the hype. And please don’t bash me for it! I didn’t do it, had nothing to do with it.”
Meanwhile, Beth Britt, who is Hardy’s sister-in-law (wife of Jeff Hardy), said that the police were called to her home and not Matt Hardy’s for a “suicide call” shortly after the video was posted. “Ugh. So sick of bulls–t. Don’t believe everything you read. No matter who writes or posts it,” she initially wrote. She then followed it up with, “when the cops show up to our house at 11 pm, for a ‘suicide call’ the f—ing joke is over @MATTHARDYBRAND. Stop trying to work the Internet.”
A fan wrote to Britt, “Who the hell calls 911 and sends them to the wrong f’n house?” She responded, “Apparently someone that believed the stupid video.”
She then wrote, “I guess you got what you wanted @MATTHARDYBRAND. Everyone is talking about you, again. But it’s not in a good way.”
EDITOR’S NOTE: I rarely comment on situations like this, but I couldn’t resist this time. Yet again, this seems like yet another desperate manuever by a once promising star to seek attention. Yet while Hardy indeed earned some press, who in the right mind is willing to take him seriously now considering that his bottom-of-the-barrell alleged latest scam has turned out to be, shocker, a scam to “work” the Internet. When something really does happen to Hardy one day, I’m willing to bet many people within his family are going to be surprised at how little people care only because of disgusting stunts like this.
