Source: W.H.I.P. Temple UpdateMatt Hardy recently appeared on W.H.I.P. Temple Update with hosts John Corrigan and James Seltzer. Here are some highlights:
Working for Vince McMahon: "Vince is a very intimidating, dominating character and personality. I've seen Vince come up with some of the smallest ideas that don't seem like much and then you go, 'oh my god this is a stroke of genius.' He really gets the most out of all the little things. That's one thing I learned when I worked hand in hand with him. When I describe Vince, I call him a psychotic genius. I have seen times when he was a maniac and chewed people out for no reason. He's not afraid to do anything. He has done it all... he's had his head shaved, did embarrassing things with girls. There isn't anything that he would ask his talent to do that he wouldn't do."
His relationship with brother Jeff: "I see him every day that he is at home. Myself and my girlfriend Reby Sky have been raiding his and his wife's pool everyday; it's been nice. Jeff is doing great. He is still an enigma to a degree but he has went from being one of the most unpredictable enigmas that you ever met to being the most responsible human being that I know, especially with him being a father now. He is at a great place in his life, and I am, too. I don't think our relationship has ever been stronger than it is right now."
Why tag team wrestling has fallen off the radar: "We came along during a very special time in the business - the height of the Attitude era. Stone Cold was white-hot and The Rock was a huge megastar. Ratings were great and those guys were selling out arenas everywhere. Management was able to put the top guys on cruise control because they didn't have to worry, so they had extra time to focus on the tag team division or the women. At the point they're at now, they're still scrambling for the white hot guys. John Cena is the face of the company right now but there is no one setting record TV ratings or selling out arenas on a consistent basis. Once they find those one or two top guys that are the franchise players, they can dedicate their attention to tag teams again."
Hardy also discussed his physical and mental health after the past couple of years, which tag teams inspired them and what he has in store for Extreme Rising tonight in Philly. You can check out the full interview by clicking here.
