WWF Tag Team Legends The Hardy Boyz were scheduled to win the AEW World Tag Team Championship at one point, but those plans got canceled due to Jeff Hardy’s DUI arrest.

The Hardys lose most of their matches these days and Matt Hardy isn’t happy with their booking.

Below is what Matt said on his podcast:

“I think it’s very important just to state that I feel like there’s such a great spot for us at AEW if we’re just utilized in the correct way. We just got to get there. At WrestleCade we had this week, they said it was the biggest house they ever had for WrestleCade. We had such an insane line at the meet and greet. There’s still a huge fan base that wants to see us and we’re beloved. We’re not Matt and Jeff Hardy of 1999 and 2000, but like there’s so much we can do to help young guys continue to come up and also give our rub off to these young guys, but we just need to be utilized in the right way, and we hope we can get there. We feel like we’re taking steps in the correct direction.

I mean, just creatively, like just the way we’ve been utilized like the last four months, it’s been very frustrating. We’ve been very patient, but there has been a lot of frustration, things we’ve done and kind of how we’ve been utilized in some ways. So I feel like the natural thing to play off of is like channel that frustration and kind of put it into what we’re doing, and to those people that I call malcontents, you know, those people if they hate us, we will give them a reason to hate us.

There’s something we can do there to evolve our characters and once again reinvent into something we’ve never done because there’s never been really like an aggressive, take by any means necessary, like cheat if you have to, or break the rules if you have to, or be bad Hardy Boyz version of the Hardys.

We’ve done stuff as Broken Matt and Brother Nero. There was a time when he was the Antichrist and obviously, I’ve been a heel because I was like, you know, more of the heel because he was historically the more popular of the two of us, you know, but I think the two of us together in a new role, I think it would be very refreshing. I think it’s something that we could use to kind of like, get back to where we want to be.

I just feel like because we are considered one of the most iconic tag teams, one of the greatest tag teams of all time, you know with all of our achievements and you know, all the groundwork we’ve broken and all the trails we blazed, I felt like we would be in some sort of circulation where we come in, we have some wins here and there, we get some momentum going, then we go into a big issue with a younger guy, and then we make this younger guy look good, but we haven’t really got the opportunity to do that, and that’s what I want.

I mean, even you know, there’s a time today after our match was over, I went back to the boss and said, ‘Hey, we want to talk to you, you know, going forward we’re going to do that’, or whatever. But I feel like there’s a way to get to that where you can still keep us in the mix as a team that is a threat and that is relevant and current, but then you can still help build younger teams as well, and I think that’s where we need to be right now.”
