Jeff Hardy is the reigning Intercontinental Champion and just signed a new WWE deal, but he is closer to the end of his career than he is the beginning.
While it is unknown what Jeff will do in retirement, he seems to know what he doesn't want to do.
“Hopefully, at the point where I can’t wrestle anymore, there might be a creative place for me because I do love pro wrestling and I’m interested in everything that’s going on,” Hardy told Matty Paddock of the Daily Star. “I still don’t feel like I’m a trainer, a coach or a leader. I just feel like somebody who would never really be seen but has these unique ideas that might be cool for a show or a storyline. One thing I’ve always said, and I still feel this way, is that as far as training other pro wrestlers, or people who want to be pro wrestlers, If my two daughters ever want to wrestle and they’re serious about it, that’s when I’ll get a ring and a building, and get my training boots on. Other than that, I don’t know what it is… I’m so heavily involved in my music now; I’ve been writing a lot and trying to improve as it’s such an intimidating industry. I’m involved in that and other artwork as well, I do a lot of painting and stuff. I love all of that. But I don’t think like I’ll ever be a wrestling trainer, an agent, a coach or anything like that.”
Jeff is set to defend his Intercontinental Title against Sami Zayn and AJ Styles in a triple threat ladder match at Clash of Champions. You can view the current lineup for the event by clicking here.
