Cageside Quote: Jim Cornette exercises good judgement saying Matt Hardy is not headed to Ring of Honor

via img.thesun.co.uk

Mark this day down on the calendar because this doesn't happen often. A professional wrestling promoter has exercised good judgement in regards to the business.

When asked recently if he had any interest in free agent basket case Matt Hardy landing in Ring of Honor (ROH), Jim Cornette stuck to his guns and said something that (gasp!) actually made sense (via MondayNightMayhem):

"I've known Matt and Jeff since they started in the business, when Matt was 18 and Jeff was 16. They used to come to the WWE TV tapings in the Carolinas. I like those guys, and they have been tremendous stars, but A.) I don't know if their salary expectations fit in with Ring of Honor's budgetary limitations and B.) I haven't talked to these guys, and I don't know what their side of the story is, but there always seems to be controversy swirling around The Hardys right now. I believe Ring of Honor would once again take the standpoint that we are going to try and find the young undeveloped talent and expose them to the world, rather than to look to be the place where people come to have a warm place to curl up when they leave the big leagues."

I'm not going to go so far as to say Cornette is a saint because, let's face it, there's no such thing in the pro wrestling world. But it's nice to see that he's exercising sound judgement in his assessment of the situation as well as keeping the best interests of ROH in mind.

This effectively eliminates one of Hardy's slim options and hopefully, now that WWE, TNA and ROH are all out of the picture, he'll finally decide to get some legitimate help and focus on himself instead of his screwed up world in pro wrestling.
