Former WWE Superstar Matt Hardy recently spoke to The Swerve Magazine about enjoying his wrestling career now that he doesn’t have to deal with the rough travel schedule. Hardy said:
“I make my own schedule; if I want to take off, I can take off; if I want to work more, I can work more. I choose when I work, where I work, I choose who I wrestle. I pretty much get to choose everything. When you work for WWE they tell you where to go, they tell you when you work, they tell you when you’re not going to work, they tell you what to do. There is a huge part of your personal life that you leave once you sign your contract because you become their property in many ways. It is great because they put you in front of great big crowds at the shows and the television saturation is incredible, it’s global. But there is something to be said for having complete freedom, and with me just getting married and talking about having kids, I need that freedom. It helps give me a very good balance in life as far as doing things that fulfill my passion by working about places like Ring of Honor or Extreme Rising, and keeping my name out there circulating among mainstream fans and casual fans, and then also going on vacations, take family trips, doing things with my father.”
