TNA World Champion Jeff Hardy Offers His Thoughts On WWE Champion CM Punk

During a recent interview with Power Slam, TNA World Heavyweight Champion Jeff Hardy was asked to give his thoughts on his polar opposite, WWE Champion CM Punk.

The two star wrestlers have been at odds in the past. Hardy was reportedly upset with Punk denouncing him on live television for his September 2009 arrest on charges of trafficking in controlled prescription pills and possession of anabolic steroids, after a search of his North Carolina home yielded 262 Vicodin prescription pills, 180 Soma prescription pills, 555 milliliters of anabolic steroids, a residual amount of powder cocaine, and drug paraphernalia. A little over a year later, a bizarre video surfaced on YouTube of a slurring Hardy bashing Punk’s drug-free lifestyle and proclaiming to have “made him.” These days, however, Hardy says he has no problem with the Straight Edge Superstar.

While on the subject of whether he was aware of Punk clocking a fan in the stands on the October 8 episode of Raw, Hardy responded, “I am working on some songs with this guy, and he sent me a text and asked me if I had seen it. I hadn’t seen it, so I don’t know what happened … But CM Punk is great, man: he’s so talented, it’s crazy. We’re just on different pages on our beliefs and our outlook on life.

“But, yeah, I’ve got to check that [footage of Punk striking the fan]: I heard it was pretty violent. This guy said, “He might be coming to TNA, LOL.” I don’t know about that. But CM Punk is crazy talented. We don’t stay in touch or have contact, but I have nothing bad to say about the guy … we’re just different.”

    “I am working on some songs with this guy…”

    What the hell does that have to do with anything? Is he writing songs about CM Punk? No, just had to throw that in there.

    I like Jeff alright, but I still think he was the wrong Hardy brother that got pushed back in the day. Matt’s life fell apart because of his injuries, and the fact that wrestling was ALL he had. I seriously think he got into the trouble he’s been in because of that (and maybe still not really ever being over Lita cheating on him). Too bad, because he was always the more serious and driven of the two.

    Jeff was mad at Punk’s cryptic comments, because they were true. I doubt Punk has anything personal against Jeff, it was just him playing up his heel bit and carrying over from comments he had already made during their feud. And quite honestly, Jeff has fucked up a lot in his life, with drugs and whatnot, when he gets so many chances. WWE World Champ, TNA World Champ, people love him because he’s crazy and a flashy high flier. But the guy, while I’m sure he’s a great PERSON, is screw-loose.

    It’s nice he says he has nothing against Punk. But still, him posting a dumbass drunk video of himself making fun of Punk, didn’t exactly make Punk’s (kayfabe) statements seem LESS true. And after all, that whole “posting stupid videos” shit is what has gotten Matt in trouble in the past.

    He has nothing bad to say now because he is sobber and its been awhile since jeff left wwe. I think a punk hardy match at wrestlmania would be amazing

    These two have some unfinished business. I’m all for getting along, but I really wish these guys would hate each other. It made their underrated feud from 2009 awesome and it’d make a future one great. Like a modern-day HBK vs. Bret Hart. Even with his personal demons, Jeff Hardy was a huge loss for WWE, and his exits from the company were huge losses for himself, too, both in 2003 and 2009.

    I may have misread this, and don’t know much about power slam, But I got the impression he said “LOL” out loud in the interview. If so, what the fuck?
