As most wrestling fans have heard by now, Jeff Hardy’s house burned down earlier this month. Thankfully Jeff and his girlfriend Beth were not home at the time, but unfortunately his dog Jack did not make it out.

We want to give back to Jeff Hardy in any way that we can, for all that he has given us as pro wrestling fans throughout the years. We want to say thank you and help him out in these hard times.

Now, thanks to our friends at Big Vision Entertainment, we are trying to team up with wrestling fans around the world to help Jeff.

Starting today, any wrestling DVD’s purchased from Big Vision Entertainment through WrestleFanatic.com will have a portion of that sale go directly to Jeff Hardy.

Big Vision has agreed to once again package the entire Hardy Boys Ultimate Insiders set (Ultimate Insiders Vol. 4 – The Hardy Boys – From The Backyard to the Big Time, Vol. 5 – Matt Hardy – Behind the Controversies, and Vol. 6 – Jeff Hardy – Unwrapping the Enigma) for an incredibly low price of $20. That’s up to half off the normal price. When fans purchase this set even MORE money will go direct to Jeff.

Aside from the Hardy set, Big Vision has a great lineup of DVD’s including Ultimate Insiders presents Doin’ Time With New Jack, Before They Were Stars: Samoa Joe, Before They Were Stars: Rey Mysterio Jr., Wrestling Society X: The First Season, Wrestling Vixens: The New Era, The Best of CM Punk, Vive Guerrero: A Tribute to Eddie, XPW TV and lots more.
