• Jeff Hardy Names Wrestlers He Wants To Work With After Sheamus
While speaking on WWE’s The Bump, SmackDown wrestler Jeff Hardy discussed his ongoing feud with Sheamus and what he plans to do when it’s over.
The Charismatic Enigma was asked to name wrestlers he’d like to work with after Sheamus.
Below is what he replied:
“It would be a dream of mine – the first time I went to another wrestling world, I wrestled this young up and coming star named AJ Styles. My match with him was my first match back, and I remember being so nervous because he was so good. We’re both the same age, but we’re the complete opposites.
I’d also like to face Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt as well. If ‘The Fiend’ is around, I know there will be something special between me and him.”
