Matt Hardy Talks About Working for Vince, Tag Team Wrestling and More

Former WWE Superstar and TNA Wrestler Matt Hardy recently talked with Here are a few highlights from the interview.

Working for Vince McMahon: “Vince is a very intimidating, dominating character and personality. I’ve seen Vince come up with some of the smallest ideas that don’t seem like much and then you go, ‘Oh my god, this is a stroke of genius.’ He really gets the most out of all the little things. That’s one thing I learned when I worked hand in hand with him. When I describe Vince, I call him a psychotic genius. I have seen times when he was a maniac and chewed people out for no reason. He’s not afraid to do anything. He has done it all…he’s had his head shaved, did embarrassing things with girls. There isn’t anything that he would ask his talent to do that he wouldn’t do.”

His relationship with brother Jeff: “I see him every day that he is at home. Myself and my girlfriend Reby Sky have been raiding his and his wife’s pool everyday; it’s been nice. Jeff is doing great. He is still an enigma to a degree but he has went from being one of the most unpredictable enigmas that you ever met to being the most responsible human being that I know, especially with him being a father now. He is at a great place in his life, and I am, too. I don’t think our relationship has ever been stronger than it is right now.”

Why tag team wrestling has fallen off the radar: “We came along during a very special time in the business…the height of the Attitude era. Stone Cold was white-hot and The Rock was a huge megastar. Ratings were great and those guys were selling out arenas everywhere. Management was able to put the top guys on cruise control because they didn’t have to worry, so they had extra time to focus on the tag team division or the women. At the point they’re at now, they’re still scrambling for the white hot guys. John Cena is the face of the company right now but there is no one setting record TV ratings or selling out arenas on a consistent basis. Once they find those one or two top guys that are the franchise players, they can dedicate their attention to tag teams again.”

    Matt Hardy makes some very good points but im still not convinced he is with it mentally. He has always had a good wrestling mind but it doesn’t make me think for one minute that the Hardys are still not dabbling in drugs.

    Matt Hardy, what is this…”tag team” you speak of?

  • poko

    oh look its devil_rising again to blabber on incoherently about what is and is not right about the world, oh to be an expert

  • Devil_Rising

    He knows what he’s talking about, but it doesn’t make it right. WWE shouldn’t need a “megastar” like Austin or Rock to bring in massive ratings, for them to focus on tag team wrestling. They didn’t do that back in 2004-2007 or so, when Tag Teams still existed in the WWE. Guys like London & Kendrick, Cade & Murdoch, The Mexicools, Cryme Tyme, The Highlanders, Deuce & Domino, etc…..even a little later on, with teams like The Hart Dynasty and The Colons. Now? Nada.

    Yeah, they have a few real tag teams…but look what they do with them. The belts are on some slapped together team of singles stars, and when Epico & Primo had them, they were made to look weak every step of the way.
