Matt Hardy is interviewed in the new issue of WWE Magazine. He responds to the fact that his return to WWE hasn’t been as “triumphant” as some thought it would be. “I knew I’d be fighting an uphill battle and there are definitely some things I would have done different.” He said that the bottom line was that he wanted to get back in WWE and got what he wanted. When asked about life backstage without Lita, he said the following. “It’s a lot less stressful. People don’t see what went on behind the camera. It was just a roller-coaster all the time. There were so many feelings involved, and there still are. I’m definitely glad she’s not around anymore – out of sight, out of mind.”
