Matt Hardy Speaks On Getting Out Of Rehab, Wellness Policy & More



Matt Hardy spoke to the Poughkeepsie Journal about wrestling Matt Taven at WrestleFest 16 tomorrow night, March 23rd in Poughkeepsie, New York. Hardy’s girlfriend, Reby Sky, will be facing former WWE Diva Melina on the card. Hardy credits Reby for him working the independent circuit.

“The main reason I’m doing these shows is because of her,” said Hardy. “One of my goals is to help her realize her dream of being an in-ring competitor. I promise it will be entertaining.”

It’s been a wild year for Hardy, who recently completed a WWE-sponsored rehab program. After the turbulent year that he’s endured, Hardy says he’s in a good place.

“I’m at a really good place in life right now,” he admitted. “The things I went through in life were life-changing and changed the way I think. I want to appreciate every day in life.”

While Hardy was appreciative for the WWE’s Wellness Policy and paying for his rehab, he was critical of the company’s grueling schedule.

“There is a huge positive side to what WWE does with the Wellness Policy,” Hardy said. “The only thing I can really be critical of WWE about, looking at it right now, is that they have to remember that the people who work there aren’t machines. Wrestling isn’t easy. It’s like a car crash. I wish they would give guys a few weeks off. I think guys need to take mandatory time off. I know it’s tough when they need to promote the key names, but they need to keep guys healthy. It would help them not to burn out and from tempting them to make mistakes.”

Northeast Wrestling’s WrestleFest 16 takes place tomorrow night, March 23rd at the Mid Hudson Civic Center in Poughkeepsie, New York.
