This week the Winn*peg Sun published an interview with WWE superstar Jeff Hardy. Hardy made some rare comments regarding his recent 60-day suspension for violating WWE’s Wellness Policy and losing his home in a fire back in March. “I made two mistakes, the last one really bad. I lost my championship, my house, my dog, and my chance to be in WrestleMania. And it all kind of happened in the same week.” Hardy added, “Part of me was, ‘Oh God, I don’t want to be seen again. But I knew I had to come back and live for everything that I’d lost. But I’m back with a new outlook. Fortunately, I had Matt. I had nowhere to go and he was there for me. We’ve moved on. We’re rebuilding in the same area… it’s a seven- or eight-month process.” Jeff also talks about toning down his in-ring style now that he’s turned 30 years old and says he wants to stay on the RAW brand after Monday’s WWE Draft.
