Matt Hardy Talks About Heel Run, Jeff Hardy, EC3, Chance for WWE Return

Matt Hardy recently did an in character interview with wrestlinginc.com, here are some highlights…

On His Change in Attitude: “It comes down to this, Sean. I came to make TNA great again, to help TNA. But the TNA fans refuse to accept my because I built myself. They rallied behind a monster like EC3. The criticism I got because I was older or because I look differently or because I didn’t have 8 abs at the same time was ridiculous. The more I thought about it, the more my wife said to me ‘start taking and stop giving,’ she was right. I wish I would have done this ten years ago. I would have went much further and much faster. The only things that matter to me are the TNA World Heavyweight Title, my bank accounts, my family, and those who support me.”

Has He Kept In Touch With Jeff After He Was Injured?: “I sent him some flowers at the hospital after he was injured by Eric Young. It’s like ‘You don’t want to cross Matt Hardy,’ and if you’re out there challenging me for the title instead of supporting me, bad things are going to happen, and Eric Young gave him a piledriver off the ring apron through a table. I sent him some flowers, I hope he feels better and can walk normally. He had a good run while it lasted, an amazing run. I supported him while he was world champion and on top, and I feel like it was selfish of him not to support me.”

On Facing EC3 Tomorrow On Impact: “They’re all against me, Sean. It’s a #HardyGate going on. When I beat EC3 at Bound For Glory, he filed an injunction and almost put TNA out of business. He personally tried to destroy me and Dixie, and Dixie personally asked me to relinquish the title, it was the only way to save Impact Wrestling. Looking back, why? Who cares? It should have brought it home then, and it would be sitting on my wife’s piano for months and months. Who cares about Impact Wrestling? They haven’t done me any favors. I finally exact revenge on EC3, doing the same things he did to me, and now Dixie and TNA management is villainizing me? I’m not going to file an injunction, I’m a fighting champion. Now they want to put me in a cage with EC3 to keep Tyrus out, and my wife out, and Maxel out. They’re worried about Maxel! Rockstar Spud illegally came into the match last week, EC3 does it too.”

Is There a Chance For a WWE Return?: “TNA have sold the farm to try to keep Matt Hardy on board, and it’s going to happen. They have to meet my demands. I’m the champion, and I am the heart and soul of Impact Wrestling right now, no one is close. I don’t know who it’ll be 5 years down the line, maybe EC3, maybe Mike Bennett, once I step away, but right now my future is Impact Wrestling, and my job is to make TNA great again.”
