Boy when they say extensive do they mean extensive, this DVD is MUST for a Hardy mark like me! Three yes THREE discs of Jeff, pure Hardy heaven!!

Starting off on August 25th, seeing Jeff contemplating his fate in his match against CMPunk.

Jeff and Matt talk candidly about the bad times Jeff had, leaving WWE and his absence from the business. With comments from Shannon Moore and Gregory Helms and footage of Jeff at home in Cameron. He also goes on to tell us how he approached Vince to ask to come back.

Both Jeff and John Morrison then talk about their feud after he came back and Morrison is a HUGE Hardy fan and it showed in their matches!

Back to Jeff’s ‘loser leaves the WWE’ match with CMPunk we get a great insight into Jeff’s pre-match rituals and then see the beginning of that match.

Then it jumps to The Hardy’s reuniting and both the brothers talk about it very fondly; Jeff makes some good comments about when he was suspended for susbstance abuse again.

Still flicking back to the Punk match, an unusual concept but I can see where it’s going, they slot it in around the rest of the ‘recent history’ stuff and it works!

Back in time again to 2007 and Jeff’s match against Triple H, Jeff talks about how huge that match and that win was for him and his carreer. He and Matt talk about the title chase that Jeff had after that and Jeff also speaks highly of his matches with Randy Orton & how great it was to work with him.

On to Jeff’s second wellness violation and Michael Hayes says how Jeff had a HUGE opportunity and he knows it for a fact, Jeff himself says he was about to do really well at WrestleMania (Im taking it that they’re actually saying he was about to win the Money In The Bank ladder match) and he screwed it up and got suspended. Jeff says he was tested twice a week the whole time he was suspended, then just before he was due to come back he suffered the harsh incident of his house burning down.
Jeff is seen standing outside the burned out shell of his home in a really sad segment, he talks about arriving at the scene of his house burning and of course losing his little dog, Jack.
They really do speak candidly about everything which is actually a refreshing thing to see as far as the normal format of WWE DVD’s go, they aren’t afraid to say that he screwed up and why and how he screwed up and I have so much more respect for someone that can do that especially on such a public stage.
They then go on to talk about his new title chase and Triple H has some nice words to say about the younger Hardy brother. Inbetween all of this we are still seeing clips of the August 25th match against CMPunk with a timeline of each clip counting down to Jeff’s departure from the WWE.

We see his eventual title win, hear comments from Cena, JR, Shannon and Triple H again and Jeff describes his feelings when he hit the Swanton on Edge and got the one, two, three. Matt also says how the locker room rejoiced when he won, and how Matt himself felt so emotional he was almost crying seeing his brother realise a dream they had both had from being kids!

Then it seems to go back to kayfabe as they talk about Matt’s ‘issues’ with jealousy over Jeff winning the title and that ultimatly leading to their match at WrestleMania 25 and the short feud that they had.

They touch on the stuff he did with Edge, I’d like to have heard more about that but there’s so much on this dvd set I can’t complain, then on to the much talked about feud with Punk with comments from both the guys involved in what I thought was one of the best feuds I’ve ever seen. They again seem to be keeping it kayfabe which is a shame considdering what they have tallked about previously on this disc I would have liked to have heard what they REALLY thought about this fantastic string of altercations!

This of course is leading to Jeff’s departure from the WWE, losing the ‘loser leaves the WWE’ match that we have been seeing clips of the whole way through and we hear Matt, Jeff, Morrison and Triple H talk about the enigma that is Jeff hardy. Matt finishes the segment with “Jeff Hardy may have wrestled his last match for a while, but Jeff Hardy has definatly not wrestled his last match! You will see him back in the WWE!”

The extras are awesome; in the first segment Jeff answers some questions on his favourite music, CD’s bands and movies etc. Then Jeff talks us through his bikes in the second segment dedicated to his love of motorcross. We even get to hear from his girlfriend, Beth about her confidence in him wrestling and on the motorcross track with an interesting story about Shannon breaking his collar bone.

There are so many more things on this DVD set that I was so engrossed in that I didn’t even pick up the pen and take notes. It’s a fantastic insight into the life of Jeff Hardy without re-hashing all the old stories that we have heard a million times before. It’s new and it’s brilliant! I can not fault the DVD other than the little kayfabe moments, for a Hardy fan like myself it’s enthralling from start to finish. There are also, on my count, 26 full matches and even a crash course in face painting and cutting up stockings for arm attire!

So many people I know are hounding me to borrow this, are you kidding me? I won’t even let my kids take it upstairs!!! This baby stays on my DVD shelf pride of place mine mine mine!!! BUY IT YOURSELF!

20 out of 10! For real!!!
