WWE Superstar Jeff Hardy appeared on The Bump, where he talked about his feud with Sheamus and how they are using his real-life issues in the feud. He also talks about wanting to face AJ Styles on Smackdown and much more.
Check out the highlights or watch the full video below.
Jeff Hardy on his real-life issues being used in the feud with Sheamus:
“It’s definitely a huge motivator, man. Because we’ve been doing a documentary, too, my Chronicle [special] I think will be out soon. And it’s real deep and honest and, you know, open. So yeah, it’s been an asset, I think. Because over the years, since my early 20’s, I’ve been in and out of addiction and alcoholism, whatever. Just, the roller coaster ride of good and bad.
“And man, sadly but in the same sense, creatively it’s been a power for me. Because even back in the days of feuding with Punk — it kind of reminds of that, this deal with Sheamus. And it can be extremely uncomfortable at times, but that’s when I gotta stay strong in my beliefs, and where I am right now, and what I am right now. And not let anything under my skin to the point of like, ‘I can’t do that, I can’t do that.’ I think it’s gonna help a lot of people that I never meet in this lifetime, just by watching me on TV and hearing what I say and sharing my experience. So yeah, it’s a huge motivator.”
Jeff Hardy on who on Smackdown he would like to face:
“Yeah, for sure. It’d be a dream of mine — the first time I went to this other wrestling world in my life, I wrestled this dude. This young up-and-coming star named AJ Styles. And that was my first match back, and I was so nervous because I knew he was so good. And definitely, we’re the same age and we’re just like complete opposites outside the ring. But yeah, AJ Styles for sure, Roman Reigns for sure, Bray Wyatt for sure. As long as The Fiend is around, I know there’s something special between me and him. But yeah man, me and AJ one on one, the 42-year-olds — maybe 43 next year — matching it up would be great.”
