Jeff Hardy Says Being A Heel Appeals To Him, Believes It's Hard For Fans To Hate Him

Jeff Hardy is a veteran on the WWE roster and has recently engaged in a feud with up-and-comer Austin Theory.

Being a veteran on television, Hardy still receives some of the biggest reactions on the night thanks to his longevity and his arsenal of moves. For Hardy, he would like to turn his attention more to the character work than the crazy spots.

"I think there's something that I have to figure out, that is kind of needed because I don't know how much longer I'm going to be wrestling, but almost like a darker side of Jeff Hardy, I think needs to kind of come out. I haven't figured it out yet, but I have these crazy ideas. I wrote down a few of them, but it's my time to focus more on the character stuff instead of the high flying moves and TLC matches. There's something waiting to be unleashed in me," he told Ryan Satin on Out of Character.

When asked if being a heel appeals to him, Hardy said, "Yeah, it does. When I did the anti-Christ thing, it's really hard to make people hate me. I think it would be done in a different way but it would definitely be something I never really dove into before."

Hardy has brought up his alter-ego Willow in the past and has wanted to bring that character to television.

When discussing Willow potentially coming to WWE TV, Hardy said, "I would be lying if I said I don't think about Willow all the time, especially when I saw The Fiend and how cool that was. That naturally got my wheels spinning. I've always talked about bringing Willow into WWE with the black wedding dress and all these images I have in my head. He looks awesome and can do all this cool stuff in the ring, but where does it go and what's the longevity behind it and all that stuff I'm still trying to work out in my imagination."
