Matt Hardy eyeing one final hurrah with Jeff as The Hardy Boyz
Matt Hardy is surely in his final full-time run as a professional wrestler, with years of harsh bumps adding up for the ‘Sensei of Mattitude’.
Hardy has long touted his desire to have one last run with his brother Jeff as The Hardy Boys, and during a recent interview with Inside the Ropes, Hardy revealed that his desires haven’t changed:
“Yes, I would like to go out as The Hardy Boyz. That’s kinda how we came in, and I think we would like to go out on that note,” Matt said. “We would like to do everything that we can in AEW together, obviously. It was really interesting for me. Once again, very frustrating, starting in COVID was frustrating. Once Jeff and I started to really started to get our feet underneath us as the Hardy Boyz, things happened, which was very frustrating. I was just kind of lost at that time, so I kinda pitched a thing to reunite and reconcile with Private Party, and that’s currently what we’ve been doing.
“We’ve been doing a lot of content that hasn’t necessarily lived on the TV programming all the time. It has here and there. Me getting them away from Andrade and now that Ethan Page has bought their contract, and I’m trying to make things right with them, and we’re reunited. [inaudible] The Elevation and Dark content and some of the stuff has been online, it’s been really fun and really good.”
Jeff has been out of action since June after being arrested for DUI, with AEW hitting Hardy with an indefinite suspension. However, Matt holds hope that once Jeff is fit to return to AEW that the two can have that last great run:
“I definitely want to have a great run here in AEW with Jeff, and that is my goal. Whenever that happens, it happens. But until then, I’m happy that I’m keeping my time busy and actually involved in a story on programming, the stuff that I’m doing with Private Party. Private Party, once again, I feel like they’re growing a lot, and they’re gonna get a lot of good out of this too. That’s been one of my biggest objectives since day one. I wanted to give back to younger talent and do everything that I can to help develop them and build them. I’m super proud of how these guys have came since I first met them,” said Hardy.
