WWE legend Jeff Hardy reveals retirement plans aged 43 after signing new multi-year deal with Vince McMahon's promotion

WWE legend Jeff Hardy has revealed his plans for after retirement.

The Charismatic Enigma has enjoyed an epic career inside the ring since his debut 28 years ago.

However, the 43-year-old has suffered a number of well-documented problems away from the squared-circle with alcohol and drugs.

Now aged 43, he recently signed a new deal with WWE despite his brother Matt deciding to leave for rival promotion All Elite Wrestling earlier this summer.

Hardy is currently the reigning Intercontinental Champion on SmackDown and looks to be back on top of his game after shooting to stardom with his daredevil antics as part of the Hardy Boyz in the 90s Attitude Era.

But he has seemingly admitted his latest contract looks to be his last with Vince McMahon’s company, and he has opened up to the Daily Star on what he wants to do afterwards.

The former WWE Title holder said: “Hopefully, at the point where I can't wrestle anymore, there might be a creative place for me because I do love pro-wrestling, and I'm interested in everything that's going on.

“I still don't feel like I'm a trainer, a coach, or a leader. I just feel like somebody who would never really be seen but has these unique ideas that might be cool for a show or a storyline.

“One thing I've always said, and I still feel this way, is that as far as training other pro-wrestlers, or people who want to be pro-wrestlers, if my two daughters ever want to wrestle and they're serious about it, that's when I'll get a ring and a building, and get my training boots on.

“Other than that, I don't know what it is… I'm so heavily involved in my music now; I've been writing a lot and trying to improve as it's such an intimidating industry.

“I'm involved in that and other artwork as well, I do a lot of painting and stuff. I love all of that. But I don't think like I'll ever be a wrestling trainer, an agent, a coach, or anything like that.”

Hardy will defend his IC title in a triple-threat match against AJ Styles and Sami Zayn at Clash of Champions.

The bout will be a Ladder Match and takes place this Sunday.

He won the belt for a fifth time last month by defeating Styles on SmackDown.
