• “They’ve burned their trust with their fans” – Veteran AEW Star On WWE
During an episode of The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy, WWF Veteran & current AEW Superstar Matt Hardy talked about wrestling fans using the phrase ‘let it play out’ on Social Media.
Matt noted that using that phrase in regards to a WWE storyline is a meme at this point, because he thinks fans don’t trust WWE’s booking anymore.
Below is what the Tag Team Legend said:
“I mean, you know, that was one of those things to where they just say, ‘Trust us, trust this, let it play out.’ I know, that’s a famous statement on the internet now, ‘let it play out.’
It’s just one of those things, it would become very frustrating, especially when you get to go out and you get to do you, and you make this magic happen, you’re getting these insane crowd reactions, and then you kind of reeled back, and then you get very frustrated, especially if they don’t portray you in the way the crowd wants to see you portrayed as.
That’s where the tide was starting to turn a little bit and people were really starting to understand the business.
Because in the Attitude Era, we gave everyone a peek behind the curtain. Now, the internet is starting to come into prevalence and whatnot. So they’re starting to read stuff, and they’re starting to pick up more on dirt sheets/internet wrestling sites and whatnot. So they’re learning a lot more about the behind-the-scenes stuff.
So I’m sure that that makes them question like, ‘Why are these guys getting beat all the time? They’re really over,’ you know? But it was what it was. We were all young guys and we were just gonna go out and do our job to the best of our ability and make the most out of every scenario we had.
I feel like with WWE if you hear that expression, ‘Let it play out,’ they’ve kind of burned their trust with their consumers, with their fans. I just don’t think people trust them anymore.
Because there have been so many times that people were very patient, and they waited for it to play out, but it just never did. So I think they’ve just kind of lost their trust with wrestling fans when it comes to that.
I mean, it’s become like a meme now, right? People say it when they know it’s gonna be bad, you know? ‘Don’t worry, just let it play out. Haha!’ It really has become a meme.”
