• “WWE sucks the fun out of things because it becomes such a business and you just become a cog in the machine” – Matt Hardy

During a recent interview on Talk Is Jericho podcast, new AEW Superstar Matt Hardy talked about why he decided to join All Elite Wrestling after his WWE contract expired.

Below is what Hardy said:

“Once AEW started and it was another place that had a great TV show on TNT, star power…it allowed other options to me. [WWE] tried very hard to sign me. They offered very good money, but I know my role would have been minimized.

For me, more important than money right now, is just to totally utilize my creativity. And these last 3-4 years, whatever I might have to do this, I want to enjoy it. I want to be driven and fueled by the passion I have for this — and I want to be creative and I want to have fun.

In WWE, a lot of times, they suck the fun out of things because it becomes such a business and you just become a cog in the machine.

To me, it wasn’t about being a cog in the machine and making X amount of dollars. To me, it was about enjoying what I was doing and really like enjoying every single second I have left doing this. And AEW just turned out to be the best-case scenario for me.

Coming here to AEW, and having time where Jeff is still under contract with WWE, this is really good for me because it gives me an opportunity to be me and really highlight and focus on my strengths, and especially doing Broken Matt.

I really know what I’m doing this time around.”
