Jeff Hardy doesn’t know how much time he has left in wrestling, says he’s ready for his darker side to come out

Jeff Hardy appeared on “Out of Character with Ryan Satin” to talk about his current WWE run, Roman Reigns, the Attitude Era, a possible heel run, and a lot more.

Here are some highlights:

Jeff Hardy was asked what it feels weird to be in the veteran’s role in the ring:

“It is weird because I know I’m not as fast as I used to be, especially since I broke my leg back in 2015. I ended up having knee surgery. I just can’t jump like I used to. Things are a lot slower, but it’s cool, especially when I still see paint on my action figure. That never gets old. That makes all that time painting my face worth it. Then when I see the action figure, I remember that image I had in my mind that day before I brought it to life. I’m just doing my job. It’s my time to give back, but I think there’s something that I have to figure out as well and is kind of needed because I don’t know how much longer I’m going to be wrestling, almost like a darker side of Jeff Hardy I think, needs to come out. I haven’t figured it out yet, but I’ve had these crazy ideas. I wrote down a few of them. It’s my time to focus more on the character stuff instead of the high flying moves, the TLC matches, and all of that stuff. I think there’s something that’s waiting to be unleashed within me.”

Hardy said he would be interested in being a heel in WWE:

“Yea, it does, but when I did the anti-Christ [of wrestling] thing [in TNA], it’s really hard to make people hate me. I think it would have to be done in a different way, but it would be something that I’ve never really dove into before.”

Hardy said he would love to bring The Willow character to WWE:

“I would be lying if I said that I don’t think about Willow all the time, especially when I saw The Fiend in real life and how cool that was. That naturally got my wheels spinning. I’ve always talked about bringing Willow into WWE with a black wedding dress and all these images I have in my head. He looks awesome, he can do all this cool stuff in the ring, but where does it go? What’s the longevity behind it all? That’s what I’m still trying to work out in my imagination.”
