Time for a Friendly Intervention?

Say it ain't so Jeff! Tell me you aren't blowing this golden opportunity. Not during your greatest singles push that I see ending at the World Title!

I was saddened to learn that my new friend has been suspended for 60 days for his second violation of the WWE Wellness Policy. The first lead to your firing and absence from the WWE for four years. I thought those personal demons were behind you Jeff!

It was curious that you suddenly dropped the Intercontinental Title to Chris Jericho on Raw and now you've been taken out of the Money in the Bank match at WrestleMania (which I predict you were going to win).

In the back of my mind, I wondered when I approached you in the bathroom of the Raleigh/Durham Airport, if you hadn't been partying a little too hard the night before. I didn't want to believe it, but you seemed more than just over-tired.

It's a sad day in the world of professional wrestling. You're a great worker Jeff. Please take this opportunity to get better. I suspected you will pay in the way of your push when you do in fact return, but with your explosion in popularity and work ethic, I'm sure you'll be back to main eventing in a few months. Randy Orton had been suspended and had a poor locker room attitude, but quickly became the Hevyweight Champion upon his return. Don't blow this Jeff! You are the future.... seize the opportunity and run with it!
