Matt Hardy talks about his frustration with AEW booking

Matt Hardy and his brother Jeff Hardy are one of the greatest tag teams in pro wrestling. Matt Hardy also has a pretty good singles record. Matt Hardy is currently working with AEW.

Matt Hardy recently on his Extreme Life Of Matt Hardy podcast talked his frustration with AEW booking. Matt says he’s not happy with how AEW has booked Hardys since Jeff Hardy’s return.

“I mean, I’ll say, just creatively like just the way we’ve been utilised, like the last four months, it’s been very frustrating. We’ve been very patient but there has been a lot of frustration with things we’ve done and kind of how we’ve been utilised in some ways.”

“So I feel like the natural thing to play off of is like channel that frustration and kind of put it into what we’re doing. And to those people, if they hate us, we will give them a reason to hate us, you know what I mean? And there’s something we can do there to evolve our characters and once again reinvent into something we’ve never done.”

“Because there’s never been really like an aggressive take by any means necessary like cheat if you have to or break the rules if you have to or be bad Hardy Boys version of the Hardys, you know, we’ve done stuff is broken Broken Matt and Brother Nero there was a time where he was the Antichrist.”

“And obviously, I’ve been heel because I was like, you know, more of the heel because he was all historically the more popular the two of us, you know, but I think the two of us together as in a new role, I think it would be very refreshing. I think it’s something that we could use to kind of like, get back to where we want to be.”

Matt Hardy clarifies that he has no negativity against AEW, he’s grateful to be in AEW

“Yeah, I mean, there’s no negativity, once again, life is too short to harbour negativity or resentment or anything like that. I mean, once again, I feel like it’s very, very realistic for anyone to say like, Hey, this is my opportunity, and I’m very grateful for but I would like to get it to this.”

“And that’s just like a goal. I mean, that’s what life is all about setting goals and, and trying to be better trying to obtain a better life for yourself, whatever it may be, and whatever the avenue is, and that is what we would like for ourselves here. And that that would be our goal.”

“You know, we hoped that we would come back especially because Jeff’s in like this amazing spot and we would just find a way that our utilisation was a little more pinpoint where we have this direction we’re going in and we can tell the story and do what we do. You know, we could, uh, you know, we can make our own music, you know, or whatever. But like, that’s where we want to get to, and like, we’re putting it out there to try and manifest it. I mean, that really is the motif of this episode.”
