After three months of anticipation and hype, The Charismatic Enigma finally made his debut on last week’s episode of AEW Dynamite. Jeff came out and made the save for his brother. Matt Hardy was getting beaten down by Andrade El Idolo, Private Party and The Butcher & The Blade at the time.
While speaking on the Jim Cornette Experience, Jim Cornette criticized AEW for wasting Jeff Hardy’s debut on a boring angle and failing to provide a memorable debut.
“The Hardy Boyz now have been reunited to face who? The Butcher and The Blade? Private Party? Andrade and Jose? It seems as if they got a 15-minute notice. ‘Hey, Jeff’s gonna be here, okay, let’s do something!’ AEW had three months, right? And they have wasted it now with a poorly thought out, poorly laid out a rotten underneath heel group, a boring angle except Jeff’s debut which the crowd was going to pop on no matter what, they have reunited Hardy Boyz to work with jobbers.”
For what it’s worth, Jeff Hardy said his AEW debut felt extremely right. The Hardy Bros also plan on going after the AEW World Tag Team Championships in the future, so we’ll have to see if that will happen or not.
