Matt Hardy recently spoke with The Poughkeepsie Journal. Highlights are below.

On his place in life: "I'm at a really good place in life right now," Hardy said. "The things I went through in life were life-changing and changed the way I think. I want to appreciate every day in life."

On WWE's Wellness policy: "There is a huge positive side to what WWE does with the Wellness Policy," said Hardy. "The only thing I can really be critical of WWE about, looking at it right now, is that they have to remember that the people who work there aren't machines. Wrestling isn't easy. It's like a car crash."

On wishing WWE gave wrestlers more time off: "I wish they would give guys a few weeks off. I think guys need to take mandatory time off. I know it's tough when they need to promote the key names, but they need to keep guys healthy. It would help them not to burn out and from tempting them to make mistakes."
