Former WWE star and a former eleven times Tag Team champion in WWE Matt Hardy who is also a former ECW World Champion recently looked back at how a difficult segment with MVP was ultimately successful and the reactions of Vince McMahon.
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 Recalls Difficult Segment With MVP And How It Was Successful
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 looked back at how a difficult segment with MVP was ultimately successful and the reactions of Vince McMahon. He said;
“So they get this mix and they do it and you’re supposed to take it. He [the prop guy] said, ‘Okay, like, take it 30 minutes before whatever. So I drink this stuff, it is f*cking terrible. My stomach’s upset. We’re doing this, we’re eating, and I eventually get to that point where I do regurgitate on him a little bit. There’s a little bit of puke and it’s more spit than anything else.
“But dude, for the remainder of that night, I was throwing up all night, sick as f*ck all night from all that stuff I took because I feel, in theory, if it was gonna make you regurgitate, you should have probably taken a few hours before.”
