Willow was Hardy’s extremely popular alter ego during his time in TNA. The Superstar was very successful with this unique gimmick. However, he hasn’t been able to use the same in WWE.

If he did get to bring back Willow, Hardy suggested that he already knows the perfect opponent to start a feud with.

“Man, that’s another dream of mine I would like to do before I’m done, to bring Willow to the WWE Universe and see what happens. I have this strange feeling that something crazy cool could happen between Willow and “The Fiend”.

A matchup between the two would bring in the big numbers for SmackDown. However, to use this gimmick, WWE needs the permission of TNA. Until then, Hardy will have to continue with his face paints.

Before thinking about “The Fiend”, Hardy must defend his “fraudulent” Intercontinental Championship from Sami Zayn and AJ Styles. If he doesn’t manage to fend off these two, Bray Wyatt will make an easy meal out of him.
