Matt Hardy was thrilled about the elusive opportunity. In a social media post, he shared a photo of himself, Jeff Hardy, and Steve Blackman. Matt said it’s rare to see Blackman in the wild these days.

“Myself & Jeff were so happy to run into Steve Blackman today. A legit cool & badass dude who rarely does public appearances nowadays.


As the charismatic @JCLayfield would say, it was OUTSTANDING!”
