There were reports earlier this week that Jeff Hardy was leaning towards re-signing with TNA if they can come to terms. Hardy's current contract with TNA expires at the beginning of 2013.

We reported last month that the primary concern for Hardy right now is to take time away from beating himself up and taking bumps full time. According to a source, Hardy still wants "a substantial amount" of time off when his contract expires.

Hardy discussed his current status with TNA with The Phoenix New Times earlier this week, stating, "I'm happy where I'm at right now with TNA. But you never say never in this business, so it depends on where I'll be at in a few months."

As noted earlier, TNA originally tried to strong arm him into re-signing by not not putting him on TV, not push him and telling him that they will use him just to build other wrestlers up. After TNA saw that their approach wasn't working, they changed gears and "started kissing his ass," leading to his current push.
