His GF works for my dad in Dallas, we trained at an LA fitness. Did some legs two days ago, they're still barking at me. Really high reps which surprised me, 20-30 per set, lots of drop sets and lots of volume. Pause reps, super slow reps, fast reps, definitely not my usual lifting thats for sure. Exercises were everything you would expect, squat, leg press, hack, extensions, curls, calves, etc. Upper body was similar in style. He walks around the gym making those hulk noises you hear him making on video. Cool dude, will keep in touch w/ him hopefully.
In January 2003, Hardy briefly turned into a heel (villain) after he attacked Van Dam and Shawn Michaels .    It ended a month later when he saved Stacy Keibler from an attack by then-villain, Christian .  In February, he had a brief program with Michaels, which saw the two team up.   Then, in storyline, Hardy began dating Trish Stratus after saving her from Steven Richards and Victoria in March.  Hardy and Stratus had a brief on-screen relationship that saw the duo talking backstage and teaming together in matches. Hardy competed in his final match (his first departure) against The Rock and lost.   Hardy was released from WWE on April 22, 2003.   The reasons given for the release were Hardy's erratic behavior, drug use, refusal to go to rehab, deteriorating ring performance, as well as constant tardiness and no-showing events.   Hardy also cites "burn out" and the need for time off as reasons for leaving WWE.
