Matt Hardy is a true veteran in the pro wrestling world, having worked in various promotions in his career. He is currently under his Big Money Matt persona in AEW and remains a highlight.
Hardy took to Twitter and conducted a Q & A session where he answered questions asked by fans. One fan asked Hardy how he balances portraying a “heel” on-screen and being “Matt” in real life.
Hardy stated that while he is financially stable, Hardy still wants to earn more money in order to ensure that his children’s future is secure. He also fired back at those who accuse him of taking spots away from younger AEW talent.
“Nah, it’s not hard. Lots of the diehard, vocal #AEW fans believe I’m at @AEW to take spots/TV time away from young talent. I’m financial set, but still wanna make money so my kids are set. I’m older & don’t do 2021 AEW style, it bothers them. I accept my role as the bad guy.”
Matt Hardy is currently leading the Hardy family office as they continue their feud with the Dark Order. Hardy will continue to be a mainstay on AEW television and fans will have to accept that.
