Jeff Hardy has opened up about his current contract status with WWE, revealing how he was able to bring back his much loved “No More Words” theme music.
As part of the 2021 WWE Draft in October, Jeff Hardy was drafted to SmackDown ending his year-long stint on Raw. Just prior to arriving on Raw a year ago, Hardy signed a new deal with company. It was said that the contract was closer to being “two or three years” long rather than five, although the exact length wasn’t known.
Speaking in a new interview with BT Sport, the ‘Charismatic Enigma’ has now revealed that the deal he signed was for two years.
In addition, he explained that he signed it on one condition. That he’d get to bring back his popular “No More Words” theme music.
“That was the deal when I re-signed. I was like, ‘I’ll sign for two years as long as I get my old theme back called No More Words.’ We came to find that they owned the song so there was no reason I couldn’t. My first night in front of a live audience, I got it back and it’s just like it never left. It was so powerful. I think [WWE] realized, ‘Yeah, that was a good decision,'”
Fans had to wait a little while for the theme to reappear, but on the July 19th episode of Raw, “No More Words” played Jeff Hardy to the ring for the first time since 2009.
After feuding with the likes of Damian Priest, Karrion Kross and Austin Theory on Raw Hardy headed back to the blue brand.
Since arriving back on SmackDown Hardy has only been in action once, defeating Sami Zayn on the November 12th edition of the show. If Hardy would have lost the match, he would have been removed from Team SmackDown ahead of Survivor Series. However, defeat meant that it was Zayn that was pulled from the match instead.
At time of writing the fifth member of Team SmackDown is yet to be announced.
