Jeff Hardy has been a part of the pro wrestling business for over twenty years at this point. SmackDown Live even dedicated a special segment to celebrating his two-decade-long career on the show this week. But Jeff has seen enough to know that nobody is promised tomorrow in the pro wrestling world.
While speaking to GuideLive.com, Jeff Hardy was quite candid about the fact that he wrestles every match like it is his last. Because at this stage in his career, he has experienced so much and has a family at home, so he knows his in-ring career could all be over in an instant.
“That’s one thing I don’t know. Because I truly do – especially like the Hell in a Cell match, and even now I have two beautiful daughters, a beautiful wife – but I truly do wrestle every match like it’s my last because even a live event like this Sunday in Arlington could be my last match.”
“The craziest thing could happen within the blink of an eye and it could all be over. So, when I say things like ‘this is far from a retirement speech,’ I really don’t know that because it could end at any moment. So, I just try to enjoy every match like it’s my last, and do what I love to do and that’s entertain the WWE Universe.”
At this stage, it appears as though Jeff Hardy will be feuding with Samoa Joe who is someone he has tangled with in Impact Wrestling before. We know their match could be amazing, but Jeff is always keeping it in the back of his mind that after such a long career he has achieved enough to be content when that day comes when he can’t wrestle anymore.
