Jeff Hardy Comments On A Possible Run As A Heel In WWE Before He Retires

Could “The Charismatic Enigma” be turning to the dark side in the future?

Jeff Hardy recently appeared as a guest on the Out Of Character with Ryan Satin podcast for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.

During the discussion, the veteran WWE Superstar spoke about the possibility of a heel run in the company before he retires, his veteran’s role inside the squared circle these days and more.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On possibly being a heel in WWE: “Yea, it does, but when I did the anti-Christ thing, it’s really hard to make people hate me. I think it would have to be done in a different way, but it would be something that I’ve never really dove into before.”

On his veteran’s role in the ring now: “It is weird because I know I’m not as fast as I used to be, especially since I broke my leg back in 2015. I ended up having knee surgery. I just can’t jump like I used to. Things are a lot slower, but it’s cool, especially when I still see paint on my action figure. That never gets old. That makes all that time painting my face worth it. Then when I see the action figure, I remember that image I had in my mind that day before I brought it to life. I’m just doing my job. It’s my time to give back, but I think there’s something that I have to figure out as well and is kind of needed because I don’t know how much longer I’m going to be wrestling, almost like a darker side of Jeff Hardy I think, needs to come out. I haven’t figured it out yet, but I’ve had these crazy ideas. I wrote down a few of them. It’s my time to focus more on the character stuff instead of the high flying moves, the TLC matches, and all of that stuff. I think there’s something that’s waiting to be unleashed within me.”
