WWE Superstar and former member of the Shield
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.”
