Source: ProWrestling.netSting just defeated Jeff Hardy to win the TNA World title at the iMPACT! tapings in Fayetteville, North Carolina. This show will air on March 3rd, 2011.
Sting wore a new outfit with red sequins and returned to his old-school look. In what was described as a decent match, Sting hit the Scorpion Death Drop and scored the clean pin. Sting got a huge pop when he returned. The first time Sting went for the Scorpion Death Drop, Hardy got to the ropes. Hardy was in control until Sting hit three Scorpion Death Drops in a row, including one from the top rope for the win.
We'll have more soon but it sounds to me like TNA knew they needed to get the title off Jeff Hardy due to his ongoing legal issues. The last we heard was that Jeff Hardy and his lawyer did not approve of the plea deal they were offered, thus why his lawyer called in "sick" to give them more time.
Stay tuned for the latest.
