Matt Hardy joined The Big Mosh and “The Chairman of the Board” Todd Vincent for an interview Monday Night Mayhem, which is now available for free download, exclusively on the WrestleView Radio Network (available here). Highlights from the interview are as follows:
Why he sees himself as not a “cancer” in Ring of Honor, but as the company’s “cure”: “I wanted to come to Ring of Honor to help. A lot of Ring of Honor die-hard fans think I’m the ‘cancer,’ but I don’t think I’m the ‘cancer.’ I think I’m the cure. Not only can I offer my experience and wisdom to these guys, but I can bring in a huge fan base as far as Hardy fans go. I want to change some things. I don’t want to take away what Ring of Honor stands for, but I do want to change it in a way where it evolves and grows.
The type of crowd reaction that he is expecting at The Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City this Sunday at “Final Battle 2012″: “I know the Ring of Honor die-hard fans, and I’m going to be the enemy to them. I’m walking into hostile territory, and that’s good. I dig that. As long as the fans are reacting, whether they love me or they hate me, it’s all good.”
The chance of a WWE or TNA return in 2013 and how he has received some “interesting phone calls” within the last month: “It’s really hard to put a number on that figure. All I can say is in the wrestling business is ‘never say never.’ I can tell you right now, there have been some interesting phone calls during the last month or so. If I could command a schedule in WWE or TNA where I could work a day a week or a couple days a week, that would be helpful. I would definitely take it into consideration.”
