"Willow was my bad guy identity when Matt Hardy and I were running the OMEGA shows. I would be Jeff Hardy as the good guy and Willow would be the bad guy wrestling Matt across the indie circuit. It was an alter-ego back then, and now I had a chance to bring it back in TNA. I'm glad they gave me the chance to do it because it means the world to me to see how cool the promos have turned out and the vignettes leading up to the debut, and the entrance. The in-ring matches are still a work in progress for me, but it's fun to be that extension of myself, especially now at 36 years old on national TV." - Jeff Hardy discusses his new character on Impact Wrestling
