Jeff Hardy was interviewed by Newsday. Here are some highlights from the interview.
Why he is with TNA: “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, I can be a better one. The WWE kind of limits it with what you can do, and here I can express my spirit more.”
What inspired him to become a professional 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 form, and I became obsessed with it and I said, ‘this is what I have to do.’”
His relationship with brother Matt: “We have a great relationship, he is doing 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.”
