Fans were surprised, and disappointed, when they saw Jeff Hardy chase after the WWE 24/7 Title on Monday's Raw.
Hardy is one of the most decorated and beloved superstars in WWE history and fans weren't pleased to see him being reduced to the 24/7 Title scene. The anger and disappointment spilled over to social media where Hardy became a trending topic.
Speaking on Felger & Massaroti, Hardy explained why he was part of the chase.
"Monday night in Miami, that's just what I felt like doing, so I had to do. I was in the chase for the 24/7 Title and it just didn't work out, man. It's one of those things. I show up to work and do what they need me to do and move on. That's in the past and this Monday is the future so I'm super excited," he said.
That settles that.
Hardy had a series of matches with Karrion Kross before entering the 24/7 Title chase, defeating the former NXT Champion on Raw.
Speaking about working with Kross, Hardy said, "I had never met Karrion until I worked with him. Matt worked with him years ago, I forget where. I had seen some of his stuff in the other wrestling worlds. He's an interesting dude, very interesting, otherworldly type of guy. He has interesting ideas. I'm excited to where his future goes and super excited to work with him again. Being the only one who has beat him by a unique way, there is something else left before our feud is over. Excited about that, maybe something happens at Extreme Rules."
Kross has been picking up victories on Raw since defeating Hardy in back-to-back matches while Hardy has been working on Main Event.
