• Matt Hardy Comments On Tony Khan Making A Mistake During A Recent Episode Of AEW Dynamite
The 7-Foot-3 Satnam Singh recently made his debut on AEW Dynamite and attacked Samoa Joe.
You can watch it below:
Majority of the AEW fans didn’t like how Satnam debuted, especially the lights going off part.
During a recent episode of his podcast, AEW Superstar Matt Hardy had the following to say about the criticism for this segment:
“I totally understand why this guy debuted in the spot that he did. We obviously have a big budding television deal coming up in India and he’s going to play into that. And I get the ramifications for debuting him and wanting to use him and highlight him, it’s a big deal.
The use of turning the lights out and then turning them back on, if you do that, it builds anticipation with the fans and I feel like it has to be a known star. It’s got to be someone when the lights come on they’re like, ‘oh my god, it’s him!’ Sabu was so famous for doing that in ECW all the time but whenever you turn off the lights, there’s automatically anticipation from the crowd.
Like, oh my god, who are we going to see, who are we going to see, it’s going to be a surprise, it’s going to be great. It needs to be someone that immediately when the crowd sees them, they know who it is.
Like, oh my god, this is great, Samoa Joe is here or Jeff Hardy is here — whoever it is. I feel like that was definitely the reason why they should’ve brought him out in a different way. But it is what it is, we live and we learn.
We all make mistakes and Tony Khan, once again, 3 years in, it is what it is. He is trying his hardest and his best, and I love the fact that he was very accountable for it and he owned it.”
