- Starlight Children's Foundation and TNA have issued a press release announcing that Jeff Hardy met with a sick young fan of his. The announcement revealed that "Jeff Hardy superfan" Tom Trussler, a twelve year-old diagnosed with a rare progressive congenital disorder, met the former TNA World champion on Tuesday in New York. Tom and his parents traveled from the UK to New York City to meet Hardy and was introduced by Hardy to MVP, Lashley, Bully Ray, The Wolves and Mr. Anderson among others. Before the show, Tom was invited backstage to Hardy's dressing room where his face was painted by Hardy to match his own facepaint.
"The thing that caught my eye about Jeff is his determination, and I like that," said Tom. "Ever since I first saw him on TV Jeff Hardy has been my favorite wrestler."
Hardy said, "It was an honor for me to spend the day with Tom and his parents. He is an incredible kid and I am happy to now call him my friend."
