Jeff Hardy has been in the world of professional wrestling for decades now, and throughout the course of his career he’s taken on a few different gimmicks. The former world champion brought his Willow character to TV during his run with Impact Wrestling, and he recently reiterated during an interview with Metro that he would like to see the character in WWE.
“I think there’s something special about Willow. I’ve written down some ideas, I don’t know if they really make sense. I’ve yet to pitch any to anybody, creatively, in WWE. So I just need to go in and do that, not hesitate. They might shut it down, but it might be cool. I can’t help but think how cool it was when I first witnessed The Fiend, and the light shutting down.”
Jeff Hardy then followed up by saying that he has an idea for a painter character inspired by Bob Ross, and the idea would be similar to the dynamic The Fiend had with Firefly Fun House.
“It was so cool to me – that’s kinda my thing too, I was like, “Man, this is so cool!” Now he’s not here anymore, I think there’s something really cool Willow could do similar to that. It wouldn’t be exactly like that, but I’ve even had ideas like a Jeff Ross character – like I was a painter, a really silly painter Jeffery Ross, and then Willow would be my Fiend.
But then that’s too much like the Fun House. But that’s what’s cool about pro wrestling – anything’s possible and anything can make sense if it’s thought out correctly and really believed in.”
