Jeff Hardy is known as one of the most creative talents in professional wrestling. Hardy has reinvented himself several times over the years, sometimes even using alter-egos such as Willow to keep things fresh. With the greater creative freedom he’s found in AEW, it was just a matter of time before the ideas started flowing.
Hardy has been paired with his brother, Matt Hardy, since showing up in Tony Khan’s company. The two share their classic tag team music. Jeff originally wanted to switch it up.
On a recent episode of Talk Is Jericho, Jeff Hardy revealed that his first creative pitch in AEW failed. Jeff wanted to have different music for his singles matches. Hardy wanted to use one of his musical creations but was shot down.
“I feel limitless, you know? God, there are so many ideas. I pitched my first idea but it didn’t go through. For my singles matches, I thought it’d be cool for us to have different music, and that Hardy Boyz music just be the Hardy Boyz music. I was going to use one of my new songs …
But it would be like a ‘WTF’ moment because, ‘What are we listening to? We’ve never heard this before.’ I think it would grow on people. But that’s the first thing I’ve really said. But yeah, the freedom feels amazing. My ideas are overflowing, so I just need to keep writing and keep pitching.”
Jeff Hardy is sure to come up with some great ideas for his run in AEW. The first one was rejected, but there is always more where that came from. The Charismatic Enigma is always thinking up new ideas for his character.
