Jeff Hardy Compares TNA Wrestling to WWE

Jeff Hardy compared TNA Wrestling to WWE during a Q&A with Mlive.com.

“We’re way different than WWE. We may never be as big as WWE, but the cool thing about TNA is that we are the alternative. So people who get tired and bored with the WWE – I’ve been there, I understand – there’s an alternative and something else to watch. For special wrestlers, there’s somewhere else to go – as long as you’re not brainwashed by that WWE mentality. There’s other worlds out there; it’s okay to switch around.”

When asked about how he is still able to perform acrobatic wrestling movies, Hardy replied:

I really have no answer for that (laughing). I think I’m just lucky more than anything. I was wrestling with my brother (Matt, both of The Hardy Boys WWE tag team) for years, and he had several injuries along the way. I’ve had injuries, but nothing that’s put me under the knife – yet. I’m 35 now and I’m feeling pretty good now. I’m taking extremely good care of myself. I think my daughter has a lot to do with my new-found success and my belief in myself. Overall, I think I’m just lucky, and I hope I continue to be lucky. But I do get a lot more nervous now. But I’m doing good, I’m doing good, and everything is alright.

    - with drugs for several years. That an extremly good care for him ? But I have to agree that I am surprised as well how he does not have any hard injuries after the stuff he does. I am not a hardy fan, but the amount of injuries since he is wrestling is just amazing for a wrestler like he is.

    Some wrestlers who made millions for Vince feel some sort of misplaced loyalty, just because they were one of the few who didn’t get screwed over too badly by WWE and made a decent amount of cash for themselves.
    5 years ago especially, the atmosphere at WWE was so low that half the locker room didn’t want to be there. those who no longer enjoyed wrestling discovered they could go to TNA and actually love wrestling again, without the backstage backstabbing politics.
