Washington D.C. television affiliates WTTG (FOX) and WDCA (myNetworkTV) have been running commercials promoting SmackDown star Jeff Hardy's appearance at Westfield Montgomery Mall in Bethesda, Maryland on Thursday, October 2. He will be signing autographs from 2 to 4 p.m. Here are the appearance details from WWE.com: "Jeff Hardy is coming to the Washington, DC area to help celebrate the move of WWE SmackDown to My20 WDCA-TV, and an exciting new season on MyNetwork TV. See Jeff live at the Westfield Montgomery Mall, along with Tony Perkins and Sue Palka of WTTG FOX 5 News, and D.J. Rico from WPGC 95.5 FM. Test your "WWE-Q" and you could win SmackDown gear, or signed photos from WWE Superstars. Pick-up a wristband at the start of the event for a guaranteed Jeff Hardy autograph."
Earlier this month Jake Roberts made headlines for an intoxicated incident at a wrestling benefit show in Lakewood, Ohio. Jake and his representatives released a statement claiming that a fellow wrestler had slipped a drug in Jake's drink before the show, which was the reason for Jake's outlandish behavior. This week, another independant wrestling promoter who booked Jake a week before the "incident" tells a wild (and sad) story of Jake abusing alcohol, finding then smoking crack cocaine. Thanks to reader Joe White for emailing this in: A local Washington D.C. radio station, DC101, does a morning show called Elliot in the morning (www.eitmonline.com) . They have been all over the Jake Roberts story since it happened. A few days ago they posed the following on their website: Lakewood, Ohio and Firestorm Pro Wrestling are getting all the attention, but it turns out Jake "The Snake" Roberts was just as big a mess (if not bigger) at an Indie Pro Entertainment card the week before in Martinsburg. Josh Morningstar, part-owner of the promotion company, called to tell us exactly what transpired before, during, and after the 9/5 event.
