TNA Star Jeff Hardy Wants To End Career In WWE Against The Undertaker
Jeff Hardy is one of the biggest stars in all of TNA Wrestling, but he’s looking ahead to the end of his career — in WWE.
In an interview with LA Weekly, Hardy talked about his “home run match”, which would be one final confrontation against The Undertaker, the man who arguably launched his singles career as a potential main eventer, in a world championship ladder match on Monday Night Raw in the summer of 2002. But that’s not all, as Hardy wants the match at Wrestlemania — inside Hell In a Cell:
“Man, I want to Swanton off the top of the cell, onto the commentary table. Then, I want to climb the cell, cut the f–king cage, when Taker’s back in the ring, and Swanton though the cage, miss, and then Tombstone 1-2-3.”
Of course, Hardy was quick to note just how potentially devastating a move like that would be, even though the popular perception of wrestling is that it’s all “fake”.
“Wrestling’s not f–king real, but it’s not f–king fake. It’s predetermined. But it’s not f–king fake. Sometimes, I forget who I am.”
However, with all that having been said, Hardy isn’t ready to give up on TNA just yet. Although his TNA contract expires in February, Hardy is only interested in returning to WWE if he can work a limited or part-time schedule. Otherwise, he seems perfectly fine just staying in TNA, as he affirms in the interview.
“Matt and I are doing some great stuff in TNA right now, so I’ll be happy to stay here until the end if that’s how it works out.”
And you know what? Good for him. I’d argue his Final Deletion angle with brother Matt Hardy is some of the most surreal, ridiculously entertaining stuff of his entire career. It’s just so over-the-top absurd that it’s hard not to love. Hell, I wouldn’t mind seeing either Hardy back in WWE if they’re able to bring this angle back with them, with Matt Hardy playing a “broken” character who won’t shut up about the Hardy “brand” in between pronouncing common words with a strange accent — and all while Jeff looks increasingly irritated by his brother’s dedication to it all. It’s great stuff, and I’d love to see it on a bigger stage.
