David Dexter reports that Jeff Hardy recently spoke about choosing TNA over WWE and more. Here are the highlights.
On choosing TNA over WWE: ”I was in TNA years ago, and it’s just more alternative, and more different, and I’m a different kind of cat. I can be more of the enigma I want to be with the music and art and just a professional wrestler in general. The WWE kind of limits it with what you can do, and here I can express my spirit more.”
On becoming a wrestler: ”Back in the day when I’d see Hulk Hogan, The Ultimate Warrior, Sting — especially The Ultimate Warrior and Sting — with the face paint and the larger than life characters, I was obsessed with it. And then I learned more about professional wrestling and the beauty that does exist in it. It truly is an art, and I became obsessed with it and I said, ‘this is what I have to do’”.
On his relationship with his brother Matt: ”We have a great relationship. He is working some Ring of Honor shows and working a lot of independent shows. So he’s staying busy. He’s pretty much his own boss. But yeah, we still stay in touch.”
