The following post is from Jimbo, moderator of the Xtreme Board (since Matt Hardy’s official Web site is down due to server problems) and friend of Matt Hardy, detailing the Matt/Lita/Edge situation from Matt’s perspective:
Let’s first start off by saying that Matt Hardy has given me permission to post this thread concerning the situation between himself and Amy (Lita).
For those who do not know me and even for those who do, I do not make a lot of posts, nor do I like rumors and gossip. I have been very upset by the threads and posts I have read here about the situation at hand. I will tell you what Matt has told me. I will not go into every detail, but you will understand what has happened. First and foremost, I have nothing personally against Amy; she has always been nice and respectful to me.
As we all know, Amy broke her neck and was out for 16 months. During this time Matt being on the road had nothing on his mind but getting home to take care of Amy. Matt has a very large fan base, and I have been to several shows, I have heard what fans says about The Hardys and other wrestlers and what they would like to do to, or with them, but Matt caring only for Amy was very supportive while Amy was at home rehabbing and getting ready to come back to the WWE. Matt never compromised Amy’s integrity, but as he stated to me, all he wanted to do was get home to his girl.
The Kane, Matt , Lita and baby saga ended with Matt having to have knee surgery. Matt had his surgery at the end of August 2004. Amy was back with the WWE and things seemed to be going fine. September 2004 Adam Copeland (Edge) was getting married for the second time. Matt, Amy, Jeff, and Beth all attended the wedding. Jeff Hardy told me he remembered sitting at the wedding and seeing Matt and Amy in front of him and he looks back now and can’t believe that this has happened to them, as Jeff told me “I thought they would always be together.” If you remember December 5th was the night Amy won the Women’s Championship from Trish in Charlotte, (Matt’s dad and myself attended that show) I remember the bump Amy took when she jumped out of the ring onto Trish and I though she had re-injured her neck again.
On our way home, I called Matt to see if Amy was okay, and he told me that she was real sore and would be okay. I even talked to him the next day to check on her status. Then in January 2005 a rematch for the title, Amy and Trish wrestled again and this is when Amy hurt her knee. Amy was on her way to Birmingham, Alabama to have her knee surgery and Matt was driving to meet with her, concerned and had nothing but Amy on his mind, because she was having the same surgery he had just undergone himself. While in transit to see Amy, Matt received a phone call from Edge’s wife wanting to know why Edge and Amy were calling each other several times a day. Matt did not have an answer for that, so he thought something just didn’t seem right, so he asked Amy about the calls and asked her if there was anything going on between them, and she told him “No.”
WWE wrestlers sometimes ride together. Matt told me that Edge asked if he could ride with Amy and she told him yes. Understand this, that before all this happened, Matt, Amy and Edge were great friends. Edge began having feelings for Amy and started making advances, and soon Amy gave into the advances. Matt also questioned Edge on the situation between him and Amy, and Edge told Matt that there was nothing going on between them. Matt still wasn’t sure and had a feeling something was not right, although everything was still great and normal at home. Matt told me that he thought a “higher power” had something to do with the two accidents, the one in Charlotte was a warning for Amy to get her head clear. Matt even thinks the reason she suffered a knee injury in Puerto Rico was to send her home, to let her get her mind back on their relationship. Matt stated, “Karma has a weird way of working.”
Around mid-Febuary Matt told me that this is when all hell broke loose over this situation, Matt told me that he had intercepted messages on a phone Amy had been hiding from him, where Edge and Amy had been talking, and it wasn’t about wrestling. Matt told me he asked Amy about this again and she told him that there was in fact something going on, but she told Matt that even though she loved him (Matt) she could not stop thinking about Edge. Matt could not take the lies anymore and asked Amy to leave.
So Matt and Amy are in fact not together any longer due to lies, mistrust, and from Amy and Edge having a relationship behind Matt’s back. Matt did asked Amy to stop it, but she did not. As far as hearing both sides of the story, Matt doesn’t think you are gonna hear from Amy because she doesn’t have anything to say.
Matt and Amy had a six year relationship together, she talks of Matt in her book. You could see in Matt’s eyes he loves her. Matt has been hurt and betrayed by who he thought was his soulmate and one of his best friends.
Yeah, we tend to get a little out of line when backed into a corner, say some things that hurt, but guess what, Matt Hardy, WWE superstar, is still a human being with feelings and emotions. When your heart is taken out of your chest and thrown in the dirt and then stomped on, you tend to have a bad taste in your mouth about things, but you can be assured of one thing, there is only one version… and that is Matt Hardy
The complete thread can be found HERE. When asked why he’d post all of these personal details online, Jimbo replied:
The reason I posted this is, other Mods on this site were concerned on the rumors and speculations of what was or did happen, I was asked by my fellow Mods to get in touch with Matt and find out how he would like this handled. Matt told me what happened in great detail and wanted the truth to be known, When I originally wrote the post, there was more in it, I called Matt and read back to him what I had written, we went over it and took out things that I put in and added some others to make the facts known. Matt did not want this posted to bash Amy or Edge even though he is upset with the both of them, He just wanted the the fans to know what happened
Another moderator/admin on the site said that the recent report that Johnny Ace has backstage heat for stepping in during an affair has “nothing to do with” that Matt/Lita situation, according to Matt.
