Jeff Hardy has reunited with his brother Matt at AEW, and he relives the “juking on the run” moment that launched his AEW career! He talks about the Hardys’ first AEW DYNAMITE match against Private Party, meeting Tony Khan, AEW’s stacked tag team division, the Hardy Brothers versus the Young Bucks, and dancing with Danhausen. Jeff ponders the Hardys’ final run in pro wrestling, how many more Swanton Bombs he’s got left in him, and why coming to AEW was an absolute “no brainer.” Plus, he explains how a chance encounter with Sting when he was 12 years old changed his life – and why music is such an important part of his life.
JEFF HARDY QUOTES:
On his AEW DYNAMITE debut:
“The biggest thing from that night was: ‘How do I go out there and do the Juke, and not upstage my brother? How can I mix it up and juke on the run?’”
On face paint inspiration:
“I reached out when I was 12 years old and touched Sting on the shoulder in Fayetteville, North Carolina at the Cumberland County Civic Center – and I want to make somebody feel the way he made me feel.”
