Expectation among fans is that Jeff will join Matt in All Elite Wrestling once his non-compete clause with WWE is over.
Prior to his WWE release, Jeff teased a Hardy Boyz reunion during an interview with Metro UK.
Here’s what Jeff said:
“I totally think there is (a chance of a Hardy Boyz reunion). That’s what’s exciting about it, just being honest, will it be in WWE or AEW? I feel like there will be one more [run].
I don’t know that, but it’s like everything I’ve had visions of in wrestling, it’s always happened.”
Matt, who left WWE in 2020 to join AEW, recently expressed interest in having one final Tag Team run with his brother:
“I mean that would be fabulous (to have one last run with Jeff Hardy) and I know both of us have stated on quite a few occasions that we both wanna end our careers the way we began our careers and that is as a tag team. That was our dream as two kids growing up.
You know, we wanted to be the Tag Team Champions of the World at least one time. Obviously we have very fortunately exceeded that many times over but I think us teaming together and having one last great run as a tag team would be amazing and I couldn’t think of a better place to do it than All Elite Wrestling.
There’s one thing I have to say about Tony Khan, I can’t put him over enough for this…he is so good and so great at treating legends like legends and he has such a smart utilization of talent and I cannot commend him enough on that.
That’s why AEW has been so successful is because Tony Khan has been the guy in the driver seat and he has really been putting out a very smart product where he rewards the wrestling fans in 2021 that are willing to invest a lot of time to watch a product and watch a storyline, watch a rivalry.
He always gives them a payoff that’s gonna reward them.”

• Old School Wrestling Legend Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 73rd birthday of legendary Old School NWA/WWF Manager “Sir” Oliver Humperdink (Real name: John Sutton).
He worked as a manager (and very early on as an occasional wrestler as well) for several different territories, from the early 60s till the mid-90s.
Humperdink managed some big names over the years, such as Bam Bam Bigelow, Paul Orndorff, The Fabulous Freebirds, … & many, many more.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE
