• Matt Hardy On How Hard Was It To Keep Their Return A Surprise
During a recent interview with Sky Sports, Matt Hardy talked about him anf Jeff Hardy surprising the fans with their return at WrestleMania last year and how hard it was to keep their return a secret.
Below is what Matt said:
“It was quite overwhelming and quite flattering, to be honest with you. It was quite incredible because it had truly been kept a secret up to that point.
We had literally just arrived at the building right before we were due to walk down the ramp to the ring, and the adrenaline of being snuck into the building and going up to gorilla position and then walking down that ramp was very, very special.
Anything is difficult to keep a secret in this day and age, as far as professional wrestling goes. Access to information is insane today. You can’t tell anyone anything if you want something to be kept a secret these days. There was only a very small circle of people who knew and we really worked hard to make it a special moment and a true surprise.”
