Jeff Hardy has revealed that he wants to fill a void that’s been left in WWE and one of his ideas to do that is to channel the beloved painter and TV star Bob Ross.
Hardy has previously portrayed a darker side of himself when he unleashed his Willow character in TNA during his time with that company.
Speaking to Metro.co.uk, Jeff Hardy says he’d love to see Willow come to WWE and he has plenty of ideas for the character, he just needs to make some sense of them first:
“I think there’s something special about Willow. I’ve written down some ideas, I don’t know if they really make sense. I’ve yet to pitch any to anybody creatively in WWE, so I just need to go in and do that, not hesitate. They might shut it down, but it might be cool.”
The former WWE Champion went on to describe the void left in WWE now that Bray Wyatt is no longer with the company. Hardy says he can see Willow filling that void along with a take on the late, great Bob Ross:
“I can’t help but think how cool it was when I first witnessed The Fiend, and the light shutting down. It was so cool to me – that’s kind of my thing too. I was like, ‘Man, this is so cool!’ Now that he’s not here anymore, I think there’s something really cool Willow could do similar to that.”
“It wouldn’t be exactly like that, but I’ve even had ideas like a Jeff Ross character – like I was a painter, a really silly painter Jeffery Ross, and then Willow would be my Fiend. But then that’s too much like the [Firefly] Funhouse. But that’s what’s cool about pro wrestling, anything’s possible and anything can make sense if it’s thought out correctly and really believed in.”
