Matt Hardy Provides Update On His Contract Situation With AEW

AEW Star Matt Hardy recently spoke on his podcast, “Extreme Life of Matt Hardy,” about a variety of professional wrestling topics including his contract negotiations with AEW:

“I do love AEW,” Hardy said. “There’s some things I would like to change about my personal career there in some of the things we’re doing, but I do say overall I love AEW because it is very important for the pro wrestling industry. AEW needs to do well just because the pro wrestling industry doesn’t need just one huge company that’s in control of everything. They need competition. Competition is what makes it thrive and what makes it better. For all the young kids coming up, competition needs to exist.”

Hardy continued, “I want AEW to do well and I want AEW to thrive, but I want to be in a satisfactory position in what I’m doing in AEW. That’s kind of where we’re at, you know, still negotiating and figuring things out. Tony Khan is taking great care of me. He has been a good boss. I think Tony Khan is a great human being, but at the end of the day when it comes for me making the decision about what I do next, it also comes down to making sure that I’m happy and that I’m comfortable with what I’m doing too in all capacities across the board.”

Matt would go on to say, “We’re in the midst of this thing, we’re figuring it out, and hopefully in a few weeks, I will know what the future holds.”
