Matt Hardy isn’t being used on live TV as much as he used to be, but this doesn’t deter him because AEW set him up to succeed.
However, Hardy hasn’t been featured as much on AEW television in recent months as he used to. He previously acted as the manager figure for Private Party and Butcher and Blade, but that association ended this year.
Afterward, he teamed with his brother Jeff when the latter signed earlier this year, but that angle has since ended. Fans remember that Jeff was sadly arrested for a DUI and suspended to enter rehab.
It’s still unsure when he will return, but it’s said that he is doing well. In the meantime, Matt is working to get back in the good graces of Private Party.
The pair are being taken advantage of by Rush and Jose, the Assistant as of late. While speaking on Busted Open Radio, Matt spoke about how he handles not being featured on TV as often.
Despite not being used as much, Matt is unbothered as he feels he trusts the system in AEW.
Matt Hardy the Mentor
“I’m okay with it in the big scheme of things. First and foremost, I love working with AEW. I love working with Tony Khan, he is such an easy boss, and he’s very, very generous in many ways. There are ideas I
have, and we have a huge roster, so TV time is thin for a lot of people, and we kind of cycle in and cycle out, but I’m okay with it,” Hardy said. “I feel I’m in important positions and whenever I’m put in a position, I’m put in a position to succeed, which is something that didn’t happen in my last run in WWE.” (H/T WrestlingInc.com)
It’s good that Matt isn’t taking his lack of use personally, because many have criticize AEW for signing many stars. His current storyline is an interesting one, and it may see Matt and Private Party on TV more.
For the time being, Hardy still acts as a mentor for younger talent, with many praising him for his help.
