"Broken" Matt Hardy has said that Vince McMahon might try to kill his "broken brilliance" – the wrestling persona he developed after joining TNA – if he returns to the WWE. This comes after reports claimed that the WWE was interested in signing The Attitude Era superstar after his TNA contract expires in spring 2017.
During an interview with Sports Illustrated, the 42-year-old wrestler said he is not sure if he can trust "Meekmahan [Vince McMahon]". Matt also said he is "very content at Impact Wrestling" and would like to do all he can to push Impact Wrestling to a higher level after it suffered some setbacks in the last few years.
"Things are changing. I don't have an end game. Being a celestial being, I live for the moment to fight the Great War, and that is to light the darkness. Right now, I'm able to do that at Impact Wrestling," Matt said, who quit WWE after his match with Swagger at the 2009 Royal Rumble.
In the same interview, Jeff Hardy, who Matt refers to as "Brother Nero", said the developments that takes place "between now and February with TNA", will determine their future. The 39-year-old also said that he doesn't "see anything wrong with staying" back at TNA as he stressed working for the WWE takes a toll on the wrestlers.
"When you commit to a WWE contract, you're committing to some serious time away from home. If it were under my terms, there might be a chance, but I'm really not sure. Of course it would be nice, but what we're doing right now is so much fun. I don't want to go back to WWE and burn out within four or five months, and having another run as TNA world champion would feel just as good," he said.
