Matt Hardy debuted for AEW as the pandemic was changing the way the world functions. The company carried on and Dynamite didn’t miss a week. AEW continues to win in demographic and viewership, and Matt Hardy is taking credit for it.
Hardy, who has adopted his Big Money Matt persona, gloated about how responsible he is for AEW’s continued success. He called himself The King Maker and said he has made AEW Dynamite “The King of Wednesdays.”
The #KingMaker has made #AEWDynamite The King of Wednesdays.
You’re welcome, @AEW! People love the Matt Hardy BRAND, especially our newest signee, Hangman Page.
AEW’s success can be contributed to many things, mostly their passionate fans. Hardy’s entry into AEW certainly helped drive some interest, but the company was already doing pretty well against NXT on a weekly basis before the Broken One signed a contract.
