Bischoff Speaks on Hardy's Release

Eric Bischoff appeared on this past Monday night's edition of Monday Night Mayhem, and had the following to say concerning Matt Hardy's recent arrest and subsequent release from TNA:

"I think it was a great decision by TNA to release Matt Hardy. I honestly thought Matt was a questionable talent to begin with, not that he didn't have any value. In my opinion, there was a liability there, and it manifested itself," Bischoff said.

"We've seen how Matt's issues and the baggage he brought to TNA evolved in the last few months, and there a few people that wanted to pull the plug on Matt Hardy sooner than they did. I think once TNA made the decision to pull the plug, I was quite honestly happy about it and thought it was long overdue."
