Matt HardyFormer WWE and TNA star Matt Hardy recently did an interview on the Monday Night Mayhem show, and the following are some highlights:

On whether he's a cancer or cure in ROH: "I wanted to come to Ring of Honor to help. A lot of Ring of Honor die-hard fans think I'm the 'cancer,' but I don’t think I'm the 'cancer.' I think I'm the cure. Not only can I offer my experience and wisdom to these guys, but I can bring in a huge fan base as far as Hardy fans go. I want to change some things. I don’t want to take away what Ring of Honor stands for, but I do want to change it in a way where it evolves and grows.

The type of crowd reaction that he is expecting at "Final Battle 2012": "I know the Ring of Honor die-hard fans, and I'm going to be the enemy to them. I'm walking into hostile territory, and that's good. I dig that. As long as the fans are reacting, whether they love me or they hate me, it's all good."

The chance of a WWE or TNA return in 2013 and how he has received some "interesting phone calls" within the last month: "It's really hard to put a number on that figure. All I can say is in the wrestling business is 'never say never.' I can tell you right now, there have been some interesting phone calls during the last month or so. If I could command a schedule in WWE or TNA where I could work a day a week or a couple days a week, that would be helpful. I would definitely take it into consideration."
