After months of speculation, Jeff Hardy has finally arrived on Wednesday Night Dynamite. The Charismatic Enigma made his much-anticipated debut on tonight’s episode of AEW’s flagship program.
Jeff appeared during the A.H.F.O (Andrade and Hardy Family Office) board meeting segment to aid his brother who was getting beat down by Andrade and the Private Party. He ran in for the save after Matt’s stable turned on him. Sting and Darby Allin also ran down for the save, but Jeff was the cherry on top to put the babyfaces over.
Jeff’s debut was teased by his brother and AEW star Matt Hardy this week. Fellow AEW star Brian Pillman Jr. accidently spilled the tea on Jeff Hardy’s debut earlier in the day.
It was previously reported in the day that AEW was in talks to license the theme song Hardy Boyz used in WWE. Fans remember “Loaded” as the song Hardy Boyz would walk to the ring and that too in pretty awesome fashion.
“Fightful has learned that there have been inquiries about licensing the Hardy Boyz theme that is most synonymous with the duo. The song “Loaded” isn’t actually owned by WWE, despite it being used for over two decades for Matt and Jeff Hardy. Produced by Zack Tempest, it actually appeared on Spike TV, commercials and other things. In addition, Tempest produced the Holly Cousins’ theme that was used in similar manners.
“For those that have asked, WWE does have the rights to “No More Words,” so All Elite Wrestling can’t use that. Getting the theme back was a part of Jeff Hardy’s negotiations to extend his contract there, and the song returned in 2021. “Modest” was used by Hardy during his TNA Wrestling run, and is owned by him, as is the “Obsolete” song.
Jeff debuted on Dynamite after his non-compete clause expired. The former WWE Champion was released from his WWE contract in December 2021. We’ll have to wait and see what’s in store for Jeff now that he’s finally in AEW.
