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. It seems he has an interesting opinion about Vince McMahon.

Matt Hardy made his shocking debut in AEW last year in March and immediately started a feud with Chris Jericho and the Inner Circle. The feud would feature a segment where Hardy teleported to various places in the arena. Unfortunately, his Broken gimmick simply never took off in the company.

While speaking on Wrestling Perspectives Podcast, Matt Hardy talked about AEW’s inception and how it impacted WWE. Hardy stated that believes Vince McMahon was stagnant until AEW came along.

“I feel like Vince was pushed to do this because now he has to continue to keep up with AEW and how they are unpredictable and how you never know who is going to show up. I feel if there’s no AEW, if there’s no forbidden door, Vince doesn’t do that and doesn’t bring outside talent into the Royal Rumble. It’s great for the business in general because it has pushed Vince to change. I feel most people would agree with me on this. Vince and WWE became stagnant over all those years where there was no competition and he wasn’t pushed.”

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.
