Jeff Hardy recently signed a new deal with WWE. His old entrance music No More Words is coming back when fans do. He made sure that was a part of his new deal.
Hardy realizes how lucky he is to have this chance with WWE. The road for him was full of speed bumps as he battled addiction.
While speaking to BT Sport, Jeff Hardy was very candid about his battles with drugs and alcohol. He said that this is his last shot because if he screws this up he’s done. That is something he always keeps in mind to encourage him.
“It’s definitely to have been through the struggles of addiction and alcoholism and to be sober now and experiencing everything because I’ve been here before. I’ve done sober runs in the past. I’ve never completely committed to it and surrender to the whole idea of me having a problem, but that’s a huge part it. Getting in trouble with the law is no fun and I hope and pray that’s over because I said it when I first came back, ‘this is my last chance to get it right,’ and that is so true. I can’t screw up again. If I do, I’m done. I think that’s what brings such happiness, and I have my family and everybody in my family is healthy.”
“Again, I thank God for that everyday, and I pray we can continue on this happiness that we’re on, but things are gonna happen. Trials and tribulations, it’s just human life. Living day to day just one day at a time has been huge for me. I think that’s a great way to live even outside of recovery because you never know what tomorrow holds.”
Jeff Hardy is getting quite a focus in WWE as IC Champion. Now he’ll be with the company for even longer. It’s unknown exactly how long his new WWE contract is, but the company prefers to sign Superstars to three or five-year deals. Either way, it will be a long time before the Hardy Boyz are reunited.
