More Backstage Jeff Hardy News, Tazz/SD!, WWE Break

Ryan Clark


Omega passed on to a link to an interview with Jeff Hardy on IGN.com where he talks about a variety of topics. Here are some highlights: On getting a win over Triple H and the WWE putting some more confidence in him: “I’ve been on somewhat of a roll, yeah! It feels like a lot of pressure first and foremost, but at the same time, I know I can do it, so it’s been very good. I don’t let the pressure get to me, and with this roll that I’m on, as long as I remain Jeff Hardy, as long as I’m humble, it’ll be great.” On his WWE Title Match with Randy Orton: “All the TLC matches I’m extremely fond of, because they were such a highlight of my career and Matt’s, and Edge’s. We raised the bar at that point, but at the same time, we’ve gotten back to basics by necessity. The HHH match was the biggest night of my career so far, and the match against Randy Orton could be the new biggest one of my career, especially if I win.” On how far he has come in his career: “There were a lot of times when we would doubt ourselves. We starved for a long time: I was landscaping, and Matt was running around, getting sponsors for our shows. We were hurting for money. There were tons of times were our dad would disbelieve in what we did, but we stuck with it. Somewhere in the back of my mind, I knew it would happen, and it just played out like it was meant to be and now here I am. I feel bad that Matt’s not enjoying it right now because he’s hurt.” On Matt Hardy’s current health: “Matt’s good, he’s at home, his appendix burst when he was in Tampa, so he goes home, he’s out of the hospital one week, and he starts having chills and fevers. He went back in and had to get 40 more cc’s of infection out of his toe. Now, this is the best he’s felt since this all started.”

As noted earlier today here on the site, there remains no word at this time who will be replacing Tazz on ECW for commentary purposes with him being pushed over to Smackdown to replace JBL. It’s possible he could play double duty until the company makes an official replacement.

Crews from all three brands will be off the road for the next week until December 26. It’s said to be very rare when the company gives wrestlers a full week off.

A Network has purchased the rights to “The Game Plan” featuring Dwanye “The Rock” Johnson. It’s likely they want to tie in the promotion of the film with Monday Night Raw when it airs on TV in the near future
