Now,he wrestles solo and admits that there’s a still a few things he’d like to try, including acting. OK! caught up with the powerhouse at a Toys for Tots event in New York City where he said, "Jeff Hardy, he’s kicking it for Toys for Tots."
You’ve been wrestling for quite a while now — how would you say it’s changed over the years?
Kinda, you know, still living the dream, but it does become a job because there’s a lot of responsibility attached to it. More than anything, that’s it. It’s a busy life, there’s no off-season, you know? We’re on the road all the time.
What was your worst beatdown?
The Undertaker’s beaten me down pretty bad quite a few times. The Great Khali always serves up a good beatdown if you can’t get out from under that heavy hand. The Undertaker more than anybody though.
Who’s been your biggest victory?
Actually, this past Sunday when I beat Triple H, The Game, for a number-one contender opportunity. By far, that’s been it.
What’s in store for you in ’08?
There’s a lot in store. We got a huge WrestleMania in Orlando coming up, that’s something to look forward to always. I’ll try to apply myself again with some kind of mad, crazy, high-risk maneuver. Just continue to rock, continue to be healthy.
Some wrestlers have gone into acting, would you like to do the same?
I would love to get into acting. I really enjoy acting — portraying other personalities and approaching different levels and whatnot — that would be awesome.
What kind of movie would you like to do?
Comedy. For sure. Show the other side of Jeff Hardy that many people have never seen.
