Matt Hardy Takes A Shot At WWE During AEW Dynamite

Matt Hardy yesterday took a shot at his former company during a backstage segment on night one of AEW Dynamite‘s ‘New Year’s Smash’. Hardy found himself acting as the agent for Private Hardy.

The former WWE man showed up with a contract that he wanted the tag team to sign and he clearly saw this as a nice opportunity to take a swipe at his former company. When handing over the paperwork for the boys to sign Hardy said this.

“I promise you guys, you will not regret this decision, I want you both to trust me.”

In a light segment, Private Party asked Hardy why he would receive 30 percent of their salary to which Hardy replied.

“You guys wanna be kings, right? A king like Snoop Dogg? You’re gonna be a winner. You have the potential in you, it’s untapped. I’m gonna bring it out. I know 30 percent is a hefty fee but it will pay off in spades.”

The jibe came when Private Party wanted to know if their demands were met. Hardy confirmed that they were and said that they can take advantage of third-party platforms such as Cameo and Twitch.

“I got you covered. I can’t wait for Private Party to be iconic. And you know what? All those 3rd party platform things like Cameo or Twitch…I’m not a monster. You still get that. And they’re very beneficial.”

It was reported back in October that Vince McMahon required WWE talent to sign such contracts that will forbid them from using third party platforms. This was met with a lot of criticism and served as further proof to illustrate the lack of freedom some wrestlers feel they have on his network.
