Jeff Hardy recently took part in an interview with MLive.com to promote the upcoming "Road To Lockdown" Tour. He discusses, among other things, his connection to the Michigan area, his longevity in the business despite his high-risk moveset, and TNA's future. In the following excerpt, he addresses some of TNA's critics:
What would you say to critics that claim TNA is where washed up former WWE (and WWF) wrestlers go to collect a paycheck?
You know, I’m not sure. We’re way different than WWE. We may never be as big as WWE, but the cool thing about TNA is that we are the alternative. So people who get tired and bored with the WWE - I’ve been there, I understand - there’s an alternative and something else to watch. For special wrestlers, there’s somewhere else to go - as long as you’re not brainwashed by that WWE mentality. There’s other worlds out there; it’s OK to switch around.
