The following are highlights of a new Matt Hardy interview:
On returning to TNA and teaming with his brother Jeff Hardy: “Thank you! It was extremely exciting to return, especially to team with my brother again and show the world that we were still great as a tag team. In 2011, I needed to take some time away, I had to. I needed time to heal my body, mind and soul after busting my ass for 14 years straight as a full time pro wrestler. I’ve really learned how to pace myself as I’ve gotten older, especially from the perspective of optimizing my physical health. That’s one of the main reasons that Impact Wrestling is such a great fit for me. My schedule with TNA allows to me to recuperate enough so that I can continue to perform at the level that I expect of myself and that the 2015 wrestling fans expect of me. It’s a great time for me to be part of TNA. I know I have lots to contribute to the TNA brand, especially when Jeff & I ultimately become TNA World Tag Team Champions.”
On TNA moving in the right direction: “I think TNA is moving in the right direction. I think they’re doing a good job of telling strong stories that allow for worthy payoffs in the ring, in the form of a great wrestling match. One thing I think TNA needs to remember when dealing with these fans is that often the shows are taped in advance & when that is the case, you don’t want to ‘spoil’ your own product. You have to be careful how you word things, as not to insult your fans.”
On the TNA tag team division: “I think the current TNA Tag Team Division is strong; they have a stout roster of tag teams. I think it would be nice if there were 2 or 3 more sets of exclusive tag teams in the division, meaning strictly tag team guys. I think The Wolves are great, The Dirty Heels are awesome, James Storm has an interesting thing going with The Revolution and The Bromans are underrated.”
On Reby Sky possibly coming to TNA: “First and foremost, Reby’s priority is to be the best mother possible to our son. I do know that Reby enjoys wrestling and she had a blast doing TNA’s One Night Only (Knockouts Knockdown) PPV last May. I would certainly think it’s a possibility if everything goes well at home and we have a pretty good grip on our family life. I imagine that you could see Reby on a TNA television screen again one day in the future.”
