Robert Zimmerman, who is in charge of U.S./Canada media inquiries for WWE, confirmed with Wrestleview.com this afternoon that the original comment issued to Newsday by a WWE spokesperson was indeed official information coming from the company regarding Matt Hardy being pulled from two separate WWE events recently (one in White Plains, New York on September 5 and the other on the last stop in England this past weekend).

The Wrestling Observer, which later admitted that using the “sent home” terminology in reports on Sunday was wrong but not completely off base, reported today that Hardy is on pretty thin ice with the company after his video blog tirade. Were told there was some against releasing Hardy right away in fear of a Hardy’s reunion in TNA, but after his comments on the video and his actions of late it seemed like appropriate action.
