Jeff Hardy has made it known in the past that he wants to bring his Willow character to WWE. Hardy came up with the gimmick during his Omega days as a kid and used it in TNA Wrestling/Impact Wrestling.
When Bray Wyatt was portraying his Fiend character on television, Hardy thought it would be a cool feud. Now with Wyatt no longer being with WWE, he thinks he could do similar things The Fiend did with his Willow character.
Speaking to Alistair McGeorge of Metro, Hardy stated that he has written down some ideas for it, but has yet to pitch it to WWE creative. He thinks he just needs to go and do it without hesitation because they could shut it down, but there’s a chance for them to approve it.
He thought the lights shutting down when The Fiend made his entrance was cool and that’s something he could do with Willow.
“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,” he said.
Hardy is set to be on Team SmackDown for the five vs. five elimination match against Team Raw at Sunday’s Survivor Series.
