I really hate to start a new thread since the other one is still going, yet this to let you all know that Matt will be the guest on the Between The Ropes radio show out of Orlando Florida. This is his FIRST interview since being fired on April 11th of 2005.

Show start at 10pm EST and runs until midnight. The live stream is http://www.betweentheropes.com/listenlive.asx

***NOTE*** They have limited number of slots for the online program. I figure the feed might go down tommorrow so get to the feed early. It kicks on about 9:58pm.

Also I do not know if this has been posted in the other, or on The W, thread but Edge's ex-wife let loose on Matt Hardy's official message board and incase you missed it here is the link it too.

If you can't listen to it live, they record the show and leave it up for a week until the next week's show. They also leave the recorded interviews up for weeks after they are on the show.

That should be an interesting interview, though. I remember the last time Matt was on that show and it was very good.

Not much of interest. Only stuff that stood out to me:

- He confirmed that now much of what goes on air (especially with less experienced workers) is very tightly scripted, as opposed to the days when Russo was the only writer on staff and workers were encouraged to improvise within the context of their character.
- Although he thinks Stephanie works very hard, he told a story about how, after he had already started doing the "Version One" gimmick, she heard him mention it in a promo and asked him afterwards what "Version One" meant. Then she told him the gimmick would never get over.
- He said that Edge was the person who dumped the Bloody Mary on Amy Weber.

(Exerpts from www.PWTorch.com)


-- Matt discussed his release. He said that Johnny Ace called him and told him he was released but gave him no explanation aside from the typical "we have nothing for you and will be looking at new guys," although he knew exactly why he'd been cut.

-- He talked about the fan reaction during Lita's segment at MSG Monday, thanking the fans for all the support.

-- He said that, since his release, he's had to triple the bandwidth at his site sue to all the hits, and they still can't keep up.

-- He said that he'd filmed some vignettes for his return. These were filmed by Matt, along with help from Jeff and Amy (Lita). He would have come back as a vigilante, Punisher-style character, driven over the edge by losing everything to Kane and sticking up for the little guy. His tagline would have been, "The Scar Is a Symbol," referencing the scar on his knee.

-- He said that Edge had been one of his best friends, and that when Edge was out with his neck injury, he was one of only four or five guys who kept in contact with him.

-- He said that Edge is the superstar who dumped a bloody mary on Amy Weber, as cited by Amy in this interview.

-- He talked about coming over to Raw, and how his first night there Lita caught heat backstage for screwing up some lines during their promo. She smarted off to those who were criticizing her, one of whom was Vince. The backlash she caught bounced back on him, and he was immediately depushed.

-- He said nothing is going on between him and Lisa Copeland, Edge's wife, and dodged questions about who's hotter, Lisa or Amy.

-- He said that his 90 day no-compete expires July 10, and he's already been getting calls from TNA, ROH, and Japan. He would love to go to TNA, but isn't really interested in reforming The Hardy Boyz, as he wants to focus on his singles career, although he admitted a limited Hardy Boyz run would be a huge draw.

-- He said he felt it was hypocritical of Vince to give one of the other wrestlers, who was married and cheating on his wife with one of the Divas, a free pass, but to cut him when he was the aggrieved party.

-- He said that he never planned to publicly comment on the Edge/Lita situation, but it hit the Net and a lot of false things were floating around, so he spoke up to set the record straight. He admits that he "may not have handled it in the best way," but neither did WWE by releasing him.

-- He claims he would have been able to coexist with Lita and Edge if he came back to Raw. He still socializes with Lita casually, but with regards to Edge, he would simply ignore him and go about his business.

-- He credits Paul Heyman with helping push the Matt Hardy V.1 character, and that it got over with some catch phrases and hand signals despite some in creative not believing it would. He also said that there were some things that he would have done differently with his character, such as turning babyface but keeping the same wise-ass/cocky attitude after he lost the CW Title to Rey. He enjoyed being on Smackdown, and thought that, when this incident occurred, he would be sent back to Smackdown, not cut.

-- He said if Vince called him tomorrow and asked him to come back, he would probably say yes, and that overall his seven-plus years there were positive and Vince did a lot for him. He is just unhappy about how it all ended.


I think it looks like Matt is finially starting to get this all out of his system and beginning to get his head back on straight. I was rather surprised that he still is on a bit of friendly terms with Lita. He seems to blame everything that happened on Edge.

ROFL - yes really..the scar on the knee will really make an impact. would he have worn pants without knees in them?
I guess Jeff didn't just help with the filming but also with the idea..

No less an authority than Hunter Hearst Helmsley Himself praised those vignettes he filmed as really good.

The “Punisher” gimmick would have been really interesting. If they play it straight and gave him some wins, it could be a cool way to get fans to take him seriously and could get him back into the upper-midcard. Kinda like how Cena started to get insanely over with his vengeance-filled promos against Brock Lesnar after his injury. But if they played it as “Little guy who thinks he could beat big guys” and kept him as a comedy act, then it becomes less interesting.

Kinda pointless now, since we'll never know. Here’s hoping this fan interest stays high and carries over when he gets picked up. It may turn out that getting fired was the best thing that could have happened to him.

I'm guessing he could always do his "Punisher" character on TNA if he wanted to. Since he never had a chance to do it in the WWE, I don't see how Vince could stop him from doing it.

Good point. And if anything, he'd be living the gimmick even more. He actually did lose his girlfriend and his job this time, and odds are that TNA's audience are probably already familiar with the details.

If that happens, I hope it doesn't become a situation similar to Bret Hart in WCW where he was the "sheriff" that would make sure others wouldn't get screwed like he did, resulting in a whole lotta nothing.
