AEW superstar Matt Hardy appeared on a recent episode of the Wrestling Inc Daily to hype tonight’s Double or Nothing pay per view, where The Broken One teams with The Elite to face The Inner Circle in a Stadium Stampede match. Highlights from the interview are below.
On the freedoms he has with his AEW contract:
I could do New Japan if it makes sense. In my conversation with Tony, I said if I was gonna do New Japan I’d be interested in maybe doing a small feud that ended at Wrestle Kingdom,” said Hardy. “I wouldn’t want to go to Japan and work part-time. I don’t think my body could handle that with the wear-and-tear and travelling. I’m very happy doing this one day a week at AEW. Later once society gets back to normal in the future, I can do outside appearances and signings. There’s so much creative freedom and freedom of schedule with AEW.
What talents on the roster he is excited to work with:
One of the people that pops into my mind and someone who I’m such a big fan of and have seen work in Japan is Kenny Omega,” said Hardy. “It’s very cool to be able to team with him the last couple of weeks but I think classic Matt Hardy could have a classic wrestling match with him or a classic ladder match somewhere down the road… Darby Allin is someone I think is very cool and I have a great appreciation of his creativity of making his own videos, branding himself and creative his own narrative for his character. MJF is someone I think I would enjoy working with… There’s a lot of guys I’m really excited to work with in AEW because there’s so many new faces.
