Former WWE star and a former eleven times Tag Team champion in WWE Matt Hardy who is also a former ECW World Champion recently talked about getting paired with Private Party and explained how it was huge part of his legacy.
Matt Hardy joined the All Elite Wrestling during the covid 19 pandemic last year and his epic debut took place inside an empty hall. This was the reason we could not see the expected reactions from this debut. Of course there are YouTube reactions but we all know that live crowd reaction during these kind of debuts are extremely fun to watch.
Matt Hardy Discusses His Feelings Pairing With Private Party
And he made his AEW debut under his Broken gimmick, something that WWE could not utilize very well, or they did not. So it was being expected as one of the most electrifying debuts of the AEW but the pandemic ruined everything.
But Matt Hardy did not continue his broken gimmick for long as he changed his gimmick to something completely different. Something he never played before, and after he played this gimmick he proved to the world how talented he is, he can literally do anything in professional wrestling, he can play any given gimmick perfectly. And he has also proved it so many times that he can give big matches as well, so it is very much possible to see him as the next AEW World Champion.
Since making his AEW debut he did not win any Championship yet. During his WWE career he won a lot of championships including the ECW World Championship, WWE United States Championship, a total of eleven Tag Team championships and many other titles
Also in TNA he won the TNA World Heavyweight Championship two times. But with the overcrowded roster that AEW has right now, we do not see enough possibility to see him winning any Championship right now. And about the World championship, it would be very difficult since the competition is very high.
Matt Hardy who is also a former ECW World Champion recently spoke on his Extreme Life of Matt Hardy podcast where he talked about getting paired with Private Party and explained how it was huge part of his legacy. He said;
“They pitched that about me being a mentor for them. That was originally their idea, they pitched it to me and asked what I thought and I said ‘Guys, I know you don’t know me that well but I’m always down for anything, I mean that.’
“I mean, if something is good and it’s productive and it helps people, I’m down for anything, especially at the stage I’m at in my career. If I can do anything to elevate you, that’s very important. I’ve said this many many times, I think a big part of my legacy right now ultimately ends up with how great Isiah [Kassidy] and [Marq] Quen turn out. I’ve invested in those guys, I’ve specifically invested in those guys and they’re a huge part of my legacy going forward.
“Yeah, I mean and a lot of those guys, they were looking to get on TV but they were also trying to get an established veteran who could be a mouthpiece, who could speak for them and help them very clearly explain their motivations and their character. Considering he entrusted me in that, I’m very grateful and appreciative obviously, but it just kind of became too much. We added too many people and it became so over saturated with talent that we really couldn’t focus on elevating two or three different guys at one time.”
