Source: Chad Dukes Wrestling ShowJeff Hardy was recently interviewed by Chad Dukes of 106.7 The Fan CBS Radio DC and ChadDukesWrestlingShow.com. During the interview, Hardy discussed giving back to fans, the state of tag team wrestling, changing his style and incorporating real life issues into his return angle. You can check out highlights below:
Why tag team wrestling hasn't been given much attention: "I wish I knew, I do miss that as well. Coming from our history with the Dudley Boyz, Edge & Christian, that was a time when tag team wrestling went crazy, so cool, and even there was one point in TNA when Beer Money were having this feud with [ Motor City Machine Guns]. Oh it was amazing. I don't know I can't answer that but I definitely think something is missing there with the tag teams. It could be better. We just gotta figure it out.
If he's changing his high-risk style as he's getting older: "I've simplified, I mean a little bit. The more I think about it, people, I hear it all the time, 'You're so over you don't need to do all that.' But I don't know if I would be Jeff Hardy if I didn't do most of that. So it feels like I always gonna have to do the Whispers in the Wind, and the Swantons, to be, to be me, and I'm comfortable doing that. I mean I have slowed down, I'm nowhere near as nutty as I used to be. As far as when I do have an idea and I think it might be possible, I really think it through now more than ever. Especially with a two-year old daughter at home."
Incorporating his real-life issues into a storyline: "It was tough man, but it was a real important part of my recovery overall. Especially in my professional life, going back there and just spilling my heart and admitting to hitting rock bottom, and just getting that out. Like I've always said, from that point on that was my second chance, the one more shot that I got, that inspired the song Resurrected (his current theme music). Oh man, that was the starting point of my new life basically."
Hardy also discussed if he would return to tag team wrestling, not taking the fans for granted and much more. You can listen to the full interview by clicking here.
