Once more, fans and wrestling media members alike are speculating the next WWE Superstar most likely to jump ship to go to All Elite Wrestling, and the hottest rumors right now name Matt Hardy as the most likely.
Hardy’s fans can tell you that he’s appearing on his YouTube videos in his “Broken” persona again. He recently released a video implying that his WWE contract could have less than 13 weeks left on it.
Meanwhile, Wrestling Observer Radio commentator Dave Meltzer added fuel to the fire, saying Hardy to AEW is a way of connecting the dots that makes the most sense.
“There’s rumors about Matt Hardy. Again, his contract is up in a couple of months. I think that he’s doing Broken Matt Hardy segments so whether it’s Impact or Ring Of Honor or AEW…in that situation if you’re trying to be high profile then AEW is your best bet. I would think that he might end up there.”
In addition, AEW may already have a working angle to introduce Hardy into AEW Dynamite and its other content. The Dark Order suggested an exalted power behind their mission. This storyline would make for a great opening to insert Hardy into AEW.
