Jeff and Matt Hardy made their AEW Rampage debut this week, but they did so under a different name. Excalibur referred to the Hardy Boyz as “The Hardy Brothers.”

It also just said “Hardys” on the big screen behind them. We’ll have to see what they call them, but there was no mention of “The Hardy Boyz.”


This is a small change, but it is noticeable. Obviously, Tony Khan had no issue obtaining the rights to the Hardy’s music, but their name was something that Vince McMahon’s company had a tight grip of.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
