There are conflicting reports coming in on Jeff Hardy's status with TNA. Sources in the company are saying that Hardy has signed a contract with the company while friends of Hardy have said that he told them he has absolutely not signed a deal. The fact Hardy hasn't appeared with TNA since January 4th would indicate that he hasn't signed or committed to any dates.

In related Jeff Hardy news, he was said to be upset at the recent segments on WWE's SmackDown! where CM Punk used his name in promos to get himself over when Hardy is not even in WWE anymore to 'defend' himself. One person close to Hardy said that one of the reasons he decided to appear on January 4th was just to prove a point to WWE. Word is that friends of Hardy are telling him that at the end of the day, Jeff in TNA is a bad move because he comes across as a much bigger star with WWE.

Despite Hardy's legal problems and his appearances for TNA, WWE still wants him back down the road simply because he's a huge draw for them.

I'm also told that many people in TNA believe he's going to do some 'hard time' and TNA is holding off on using him right now until his legal issues are resolved.
