Matt Hardy surprised fans at AAA’s recent TripleMania event when he brought out Johnny Hardy (John Morrison) as a replacement tag partner for his brother, Jeff Hardy. Jeff was unable to compete after a recent DUI arrest. Reports from the event indicated that Matt Hardy may have injured his knee in Tijuana.
AEW has been dealing with a rash of injuries as of late. Several changes had to be made to the upcoming Forbidden Door event with New Japan Pro Wrestling after Bryan Danielson and CM Punk went down. Matt Hardy took to social media to give an update on his status last night.
Hardy responded to a tweet containing the report on his injury. Matt said he was at Dynamite and is feeling just fine. The reports of his injury are false, according to the AEW star.
“Sorry to disappoint, but I’m all good, ladies & gentlemen. I was at #AEWDynamite tonight & am good to go. Also, I loved & enjoyed my #TripleMania30 match for @luchalibreaaa. Thanks, TJ!”
Matt Hardy has not appeared on AEW television for the past couple of weeks after Jeff was arrested. At this point, he claims he is healthy enough to go if he is called upon. That may happen in the aftermath of Forbidden Door, where Matt is not scheduled to compete.
It’s good to hear that Matt Hardy is not suffering from a serious injury. Another wrestler on the shelf is the last thing Tony Khan needs. While he may be a little banged up, Matt says he’s good to go.
