TNA released has released a teaser video hyping Jeff Hardy’s upcoming return at Lockdown on March 9th.
The video show Hardy as Willow, a modern incarnation of his Willow the Wisp from the OMEGA promotion.
” Jeff Hardy is returning to TNA as his “Willow” character”
That is what I was trying to capture haha. I got the do-gooders downvoting me lol.
hmm.. is that their move after the Bray Wyatt character became successful? After seeing that emo Bully Ray is sh*t? Hope we get a Willow/emoBully feud, should be reaaaally funny
This is Bully’s worst gimmick yet. Otherwise he’s always been entertaining!
Hardy has had this character LONG before the Wyatt gimmick was even thought of.. if i remember correct he had it back in ROH in his only appearance there in 03-04 and even before then in his OMEGA promotion..
I know the Willow character. I asked if that was the reponse to the success of Bray Wyatt. I don’t need your video spamming on my comment. Thanks
Well if you had any sense of logic. You woud realize that no, it’s not a response to anything. It’s Jeff and TNA actually doing something good and refreshing with his character now that they’re done with the UK tour and he can comeback. No one wants to see stupid wetsuit wearing ugly facepaint Jeff Hardy anymore. Time for a change. and that’s what they’re doing.
And that ugly wetsuit guy was the number one selling mechandise guy. Failing to see the connection with Bray when you have a guy making weird promos in the middle of the trees, and not realising that the Jeff you’re sick of is making better business for tna than the other guys, and then telling me that I don’t have any sense of logic… wow… Good to be a fanboy, good for you!
That was creepy not sure what to make of that but it seems kind of stupid
Although this character looks horrible I will say that Jeff’s face paint always looks awesome.
Pretty sure he had a mask on at some points
Yes, but you can still see the face paint underneath. I’m also talking about past appearances.
Well to be honest Hardy has never really failed to impress me when it comes to his face paint or art in general. He’s a great artist!
Yeah… Especially his singing…
Theres a reason I didn’t mention that lol
How come? His album should have been on the billboard top 100 greatest albums of all time.. Such hits like “Modest”
“Modest to the top,
Modest at the top
Straight to the top
And then keep on headin’ up”
Like woahhhh! Them lyrics are of another world, that perfectly tuned voice… Pure artistry, you should love the guy’s music.
Well I shouldn’t complain, I did get his album only on a handshake..
This is pretty awesome.
Jeeeeperrrs Creeeeepers where’d you get them peepers!??!
Willow Wyatt much?
Hardy has had this character LONG before the Wyatt gimmick was even thought of.. if i remember correct he had it back in ROH in his only appearance there in 03-04 and even before then in his OMEGA promotion…
Hmm, because you have knowledge of this gimmick where I don’t think any of us have any, (I personally don’t) what is the actual gimmick? Because from what I gather from the match, look and promo etc he is just being Jeff Hardy but with a different look and started talking in a more… Artistic way? Making references to angels and so forth, yet his move-set and mannerisms seem to be the same. So, is it just a cosmetic refresh or an actual different character?
What the factual uck.
I like it man. Something different for Jeff Hardy. It looks like he will be a vengeful character.
Sounds like Paul Bearer on acid.
“We were alllll borrrrrn annnngellllssss”
I was expecting an “OHHHHHHHHHHHHHH YYYYEAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!”
His mask look like a cross between MF Doom and Kiss.
Kind of reminds me of Bioshock
Please don’t mind those commenting that Willow is a Wyatt rip off they do not represent us all in the IWC
Looks great. long as he’s heel that is.. I loved “Anti-christ” Jeff Hardy, before all the Victory Road mishaps.. It was hands down his best character. Hopefully this works out..
Its kinda like a power ranger villain lol. But in all seriousness i kinda like it, i just hope they dont make it like Abyss/JosephParks where they have him on with both characters all the time.
… It DOES look like a Power Rangers villain. All he needs is a giant form.
Also, we clearly know who the new kids are saying this is a “rip off of Bray Wyatt” Jeff had this character made before the guy who is Bray Wyatt was done with high school.
no its not the character himself its the timing that i believe is a little suspicious
his character and Brays character is totally different, Brays is more of a colt leader however Jeff’s character is some psychopath freak
In other words: replacement Sting.
if only Jeff didnt leave WWE in 2009.. he got a heavy push back then and was really over.. :(
Leaving when he did probably saved his life. He was battling some pretty bad addiction problems at that time.
And this entire time, I had been quipping about how since the UK has become a big deal for TNA with Challenge and everything, that maybe for his return Jeff should’ve gotten a crewcut and renamed himself Renton Hardy instead!
This is one of MANY reasons why Jeff is my favorite of all TIME! *willow laugh*
very cool that they are giving Jeff some creative freedom but let’s pull him back to earth a little bit..
Surprisingly, very cool. However, I don’t know how much faith I have in this all together. Still cool character and video.
this is nothing like the wyatt gimmick but they’re both cool.
jeff did a good job making this willow character different than his regular jeff hardy persona I am kind of looking forward to this see if he keeps it up.
and bray should be the number 1 heel in wwe right now.
Jeff Hardy vs CM Punk in TNA. Get ready.
get reday dude that nay happen cm punk said he hates tna and punk is stell signed with wwe his cutnract don’t end tell july punk said befor he never going back to tna get over it
Punk has already signed to tna. he will start this summer. haters cant handle that half the wwe roster loathe working in the company and only do it for a pay check!
I seriously cant tell the difference between Jeff on Crack and him portraying this gimmick. They both seem to be under the influence lol.
LOL sad i missed Implosion last night, why not just turn Jeff Hardy heel again….worked so well the first time…..#Russoidears
This was so creepy/cool
Everyone really hating on this? I think it’s pretty cool. Hardy is so stale, so this could actually be kind of interesting. I bet if WWE did this at least half of you would change your tune.
This could be a really good gimmick for a tna or even some indies.But I really think someone younger or new should have it.And I like the paint (not the mask really).I wouldn’t like it to be a crazy guy gimmick I’d like something more serious and dark.
I’m willing to give it a shot. What I hope they don’t do though, is have Hardy work show as Willow and as him self. I hope this is a storyline where they reveal Hardy to be Willow, and let him wrestle only as Willow.
We just got off Abyss/Parks – we don’t need another storyline just like that.
Well I don’t really watch tna that much.But I get your point and I agree!Dark themes should be wh*red!
Well no because other than Goldust and the Uso’s who really wears paint anymore? Its a silly thing for him to do now imo,
Stop this nonsense Jeff and come back to the WWE lol
I think this is one of the reasons that Jeff Hardy is staing in TNA and not returning to WWE. In TNA, He can be more of the artist and a enigma that he is. Still, I want him back to finish of his career in WWE
okay i know he had this character before and i really want to say a hardy drug joke but i wont. seriously though was he high when he made this up
I get the feeling that Hard is a fan of Fox’s “Sleepy Hollow”
Jeff hardy is my hero but why are you returning as willow?!?!? Well evantually someone is going to figure out who you are.
The older Jeff gets, the more he seems to grow as an artist, which is why it’s odd to me that he’s still wrestling.
Freaking love Jeff.Glad he went to TNA he can be himself more there
Oh Jeff Hardy, how far you’ve fallen..
And when will Angelic Diablo come to TNA.
As much as I enjoy the idea, I am worried the execution will fall flat. Hardy is not known for even average mic-work a lot of the time. There’s still something a little off on the acting side here. The video distorts the audio and visuals, which are meant to make the piece creepier, but also is meant to distract from any acting shortcomings.
This feels like something a new guy would use to push his way into the mid-card and upper card. Jeff Hardy is already established, so the illusion will be a bit more difficult to follow. I’m also not sure if he should be face or heel with this gimmick.
What the hell?
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA this video makes me laugh all the time.
Perhaps, if I might offer an idea. Remember what they did with dustin runnels and 7….? maybe the intent is to bring back jeff hardy as this god-awful character….play it as him having a family, needing the work, and he’s remorseful “maybe I made a mistake when I walked”. Dixie forces him to come back as this horrible character…as his “punishment” for walking away… MVP saves him and let’s him be himself. Not that I write storylines, or anything like that, but it’s an idea on how it “might” work…
Sooo Jeff Wyatt?
well now we know what happened to the rest of the scripts for seven went .This is borderline retarded
that promo just made me think “Is this what happens when you trip on acid?”…o_O
