AEW star Matt Hardy recently spoke on his podcast, “the Extreme Life of Matt Hardy,” about a variety of professional wrestling topics including CM Punk’s WWE return at Survivor Series and Sting’s last match coming up at AEW Revolution in March.

CM Punk returning to WWE:

“You can’t hate that move by WWE, for sure. It was a shocking move. Obviously, it was gonna get people talking and it’s good for business. I would imagine it’s an environment where I think Phil would be on his best behavior there. If that makes him happy, and he’s good with that, then then I’m fine with it, too. I’m cool with that. You know, it is what it is.”

On Sting’s retirement match being in Greensboro, NC:

“I was so happy to hear that.I’m really glad that AEW is being very true to form and letting him wrestle in a city that was truly important to him and also formative to his career being Greensboro, North Carolina, and I’m not gonna lie. I dig it because that’s an hour and 15 or 20 minutes from the house. So it’s nice, nice to just close by.”
