During a recent interview with CBS Local Sports, former WWE Champion Jeff Hardy was asked about the recent rumors of WWE offering contracts to The Hardy Boyz and their return to WWE being imminent (as reported by Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer).
Jeff denied those reports and had the following to say about the rumors of a possible return to the company that made him what he’s today:
“No, because you have to go through so much testing and all of that. It’s a long process. But, no. We know some people there and naturally after WrestleMania dies down, maybe a couple of months from now, we’ll see what’s possible. But there is no truth to that whatsoever.”
Jeff also noted that their deal with ROH is a short one, but runs through Summer:
“It’s short-term. It’s through the summer. What’s cool about Ring of Honor is that we can still go out and work the indie dates. That’s another thing about the TNA deal was that they wanted to take our indy dates from us and I really enjoy working the independent circuit. You meet some crazy, cool, interesting people and the shows have been so great as of late. I would say our Ring of Honor deals are through the summer. It’s a short-term deal and we’ll see how things go. We’ll test the waters for a while and hopefully help the company grow.”
Jeff also noted that this Saturday’s ROH show won’t be the last for The Hardy Boyz:
“Oh, no. No, there’s going to be many more shows. Many more honorable shows.”
