• “That was ultimately the plan” – Jeff Hardy On What He Was Thinking In WWE
During an appearance on The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy podcast, Jeff Hardy talked about feeling he was wasting his time in WWE and wanting to join his brother in All Elite Wrestling.
Below is what Jeff said:
“When anybody from AEW said ‘hey man, how much longer do you got over there?’ ‘ah, a little under two years now…’ but that was ultimately the plan (to go to AEW) depending on how things went throughout those two years.
I’m in good shape but I’m still pretty beat up so I don’t know how much longer I’ve got so I just want to make the most of how much longer I do have.
I’m sure Matt feels the same way, let’s get this in while we can. I just felt like I was wasting away in WWE, for my good moments that hadn’t happened yet, while I’m healthy and still feel pretty good out there in the ring.
I just feel valued now and I think that’s very important as a performer.”
The Hardys won their first match as a Tag Team in AEW this past Wednesday on Dynamite, when they defeated Private Party.
