Jeff Hardy is arguably one of the most spectacular and controversial athletes to have performed in WWE in the modern era. Cameron's 44-year-old is a three-time world champion, having won the WWE Championship once and the heavyweight belt twice.
He has also taken off the whim of winning the Intercontinental title five times, once that of the United States and three times the Hardcore Championship, as well as several awards at the tag team level (together with his brother Matt).
Jeff became the ninth wrestler in the history of the Stamford-based company to have completed the 'Grand Slam' (and succeeded in both formats). During a long interview with James Stewart's microphones for 'Inside The Ropes', 'The Charismatic Enigma' spoke about WWE's choice to use its personal demons as a starting point for several storylines.

"We have always been in agreement on the way to go. It all comes in the form of a concept and of course they asked me if I felt comfortable playing that character. It was like therapy for me.
I wanted to be honest with the whole world, as the WWE Universe has offered me incredible support all these years. I am open-minded to any solution. If I feel comfortable, there is no reason why I should hide my weaknesses. None of the storylines you saw on television made me feel uneasy” - revealed Jeff Hardy.
Later in the interview, Hardy focused on his relationship with Vince McMahon. “I am very grateful to him for giving me the opportunity to be a WWE superstar for so long. No matter what they ask me to do, I feel blessed to still be a WWE member and our relationship extends beyond just business.
I just try to do my best to make Vince McMahon happy and I hope the executives are happy with my performance” - added Jeff, who has also achieved remarkable success at TNA. WWE superstar Jeff Hardy was on the Wrestling Inside the Ropes podcast to discuss some of the highlights of his storied career and a potential dream match with Roman Reigns.
“My number one goal is definitely to be the Universal Champion one time before my career is over. I don’t know how much longer I have and I’m very much living like day to day here now. So I just want to entertain people. It’s exciting to be back in front of the live audiences”.
