The pro wrestling world is continuously evolving and over the years it has gone through several changes. Matt Hardy has competed in several different eras of wrestling and has no intentions of stopping anytime soon. It seems he has his own idea as far as being remembered in pro wrestling is concerned.
Matt Hardy is a true veteran in the pro wrestling world as he has competed for well over two decades in various promotions all around the world Hardy made a name for himself in WWE before becoming a global sensation thanks to his Broken gimmick. Hardy would join AEW in March of 2020.
While his Broken gimmick didn’t fare well, his Big Money Matt gimmick certainly has been reasonably successful. While speaking on the AEW Unrestricted podcast, Matt Hardy talked about what he wants to be remembered by in pro wrestling.
“I almost want to be remembered for just being one of the most passionate wrestlers of all time. Because I am. You know, I’m one of those guys who, I love this, I grew up a huge fan, and I was able to do it, I was able to achieve some success and I’ve always been very passionate in everything I’ve done.
And I also wanna be remembered as being a fearless wrestler, not necessarily from the aspect of like taking chances and taking risks, even though I have done my fair share of that. Fearless from a creative aspect, of not being afraid to try different things. And sometimes they work and they’re a huge hit and a success. Sometimes they don’t, and then you go back to the drawing board. You know, so I would like to be remembered for being a fearless competitor, especially from a creative aspect. I’ll take somewhat of a physical aspect too, athletically, but also just being a very passionate wrestler, one of the most passionate wrestlers of all time.”
Matt Hardy is certainly happy working in AEW and that is unlikely to change anytime soon. It is likely his contributions to the pro wrestling world will never be forgotten either and he will be remembered as a legend in the business.
