Jeff Hardy On Whether He Will Return To WWE, Matt Hardy’s Recovery, Online Critics
During an interview with the Phoenix New Times promoting TNA Wrestling’s Bound For Glory pay-per-view event on Oct. 14, Jeff Hardy was asked whether he would consider returning to WWE when his TNA contract expires next year.
“Man, I really can’t answer that,” Hardy said. “I’m happy where I’m at right now with TNA. But you never say never in this business, so it depends on where I’ll be at in a few months.”
“The Charismatic Enigma” also addressed critical Internet wrestling fans, particularly those who rip his matches and slammed him during his road to recovery. When asked how he deals with “haters like that,” Hardy says he doesn’t.
“It’s pure ignorance as far as I’m concerned. I don’t need approval as far as what people thought of my match or how I looked or what I did or if I’m going to fail. I’m not an Internet guy at all…I don’t even take time to read ignorance,” Hardy said. “It’s amazing the power that people have behind those computer screens and whatever it is that makes them feel the way they feel that they need to say or type whatever they’re saying about somebody is such insecurity and that’s why I don’t deal with any of it.”
Hardy also weighed in on his brother, Matt Hardy, recovering from his own personal battles last year. Hardy said he’s “excited” for his road to recovery, but hated the bizarre YouTube videos he posted last year.
“I hated everything he put up. I was embarrassed for him. But that was just stuff that he was going through,” Hardy stated.
Hardy also comments on his final match in WWE three years ago, his upcoming World Heavyweight Championship bout against Austin Aries, his artwork and more. The full interview is available here.
