• Jeff Hardy On If He Will Bring Back His Willow Alter Ego In AEW
Jeff Hardy had an alter ego in TNA called “The Willow”. Fans wanted him to bring back that persona in WWE, but it didn’t happen.
Now that Jeff is in AEW and wrestlers get more freedom over there, he was asked if he’ll bring The Willow back on All Elite Wrestling TV.
Below is what Hardy said on Talk Is Jericho:
“He’s the first character I pretty much ever kind of came up with, outside of myself. But yeah, I think it could be done really well.
I just think it’s going to be a lot more the image of it and the apparel is going to be much better than last time.
I even had the idea of me and Darby last week. I said, ‘What if Willow popped up towards the end after I take a bump on the stairs? And he’s like, ‘He’s a shell of a man he used to be.’ He puts me down. He’s the demon inside me that’s like, ‘You’re pathetic.’
But I didn’t pitch that naturally because my ideas are flowing like crazy about what Willow could be in AEW. A little different than The Fiend and Bray Wyatt, but I’m super excited for the possibilities.”
