Jeff Hardy says he looks up to the former Freebird.
Jeff Hardy and his brother have been wrestling for well over two decades and the majority of the time they were working for WWE or Impact Wrestling. In April, Hardy won the WWE United States Championship and became a Grand Slam Champion.
The resume of Jeff Hardy and his brother will put them in contention for a WWE Hall of Fame bid and in an interview with the Y108 radio station in Pittsburgh, Hardy was asked who he wants to induct him into the Hall of Fame.
"Michael Hayes for sure. He's like out biggest influence, influential coach, kind of like a wrestling father in a sense," said Hardy.
In the remainder of his time on the radio show, Hardy was asked questions by fans about his time in Impact Wrestling, his first run in WWE, and doing the Swanton at 40 years old. Hardy said he's saving the Swanton for television.
At Extreme Rules, Hardy will be defending his WWE United States Championship against Shinsuke Nakamura. Fightful Wrestling will have live coverage and a recapping podcast for the pay-per-view.
