Jeff Hardy joined Dave Lagreca and Doug Mortman on Busted Open after his ladder match with Austin Aries last night. Here are some highlights from the interview.

On what he thought of the ladder match last night: “Before last night, I went back to watch some of the TLC matches and myself and the Undertaker and there is a lot for me to live up to in those matches. But I haven’t seen it back because I got knocked silly numerous times. So once I see it back, I’ll have a better idea of my opinion.”

What is on the horizon with his contract expiring soon? “In January when that rolls around, I’ll make a decision. I’ve pretty much made that decision. The music is going to be a huge part of it as far as keeping me around. We haven’t signed anything yet, but we are getting close.”

James Storm as the number one contender: “I forget where it was, but we wrestled at a live event and it wasn’t too long ago, I think it was before Bound For Glory and we had a crazy good match. It’s babyface vs babyface, but we have different styles, but its going to be great for sure. A lot more technical, probably throw some extreme touch in there, but you never know with James what’s going to happen.”

If he’s still excited to be wrestling: “Of course! It is my evolution. I will ease out of wrestling and into my next step which is going to be music and maybe eventually balance both. But yeah it’s just fun to have them support me like they are, even with my paintings and we’re talking about this website. There is a lot of exciting things that are in the works. It’s probably going to keep me around, and I’m just taking it slow. Right now I am the world champion, so I’ve got a lot to focus on and we keep recording new songs. It’s just getting more exciting. The future has a lot to offer.”

If he will change his wrestling style: “I’m going to change it big time when I leave and I come back as Willow the Wisp one of these days. My vision of this character is just an extension of myself. It will be basically from the imagination of Jeff Hardy. Willow the Wisp instead of painting my face, he’ll just be wearing a mask. In a world that makes no sense, back in the Omega days it was so fun to be him and I never worried about making sense. I was in my own little world under that mask. At 36 years old, if I can do something like that it’s going to be a blast. It’s going to be a huge change of style for me.”
