Original: AEW was turned upside-down when The Elite and CM Punk battled after All Out. This was an unscheduled fight in Punk’s locker room, one that saw a lot of buzz, speculation, and the possible firing of CM Punk. As for The Elite, they will be back soon.
On the November 4th episode of “Extreme Life of Matt Hardy,” Matt Hardy expressed his feelings on what went down after the All Out post-event media scrum. He also discussed other recent happenings on AEW, such as Jeff Jarrett’s debut.
Matt Hardy believes that the Young Bucks were in the right concerning what happened after the media scrum. He was also glad to see them back in the ring after Tony Khan suspended all parties involved.
“It’s gonna be very interesting to see The Elite back, The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega. I’m very happy they’re back. I will say this right here and right now, those guys didn’t do anything wrong in the situation. If anything, they were the victims. I’m telling you that from a first person perspective. I was there. I witnessed it all. I love all three of those guys. I’ve known Matt and Nick forever. I’ve just gotten to know Kenny while I’ve worked with AEW, but I am very happy they are returning to TV and they’re back and they’re back in the mix. They deserve to be in the mix.”
When asked about what Jeff Jarrett will bring to AEW, Hardy has a lot of good things to say. After all, Double J brings a lot to the table.
“I think he brings a ton of experience. He has worked so much on the business side of pro wrestling as far as booking India, booking foreign stuff, I mean, obviously he is so gifted with all this great experience with all the stuff he had at TNA and Impact that he did. I mean, there’s a lot of things that are very beneficial, a lot of qualities Jeff Jarrett has that can really help AEW continue to grow as a brand.”
Closing off, Hardy gave his final thoughts on the whole All Out investigation. In the end, he feels like the proper names were cleared of any wrongdoing.
“I just feel like this investigation has happened and I’m glad that their names have been cleared and they’re coming back to TV.
I saw them (The Young Bucks) yesterday. I told them, ‘Oh my God. It’s so good to see you guys. You guys are the heart and soul of AEW.’ I feel like the Elite, I feel like Matt, Nick, and Kenny are in many, many ways the identity of AEW. Without those guys, you don’t have AEW as it is right now, things are very, very different. You know, Tony Khan may have started wrestling in some capacity, but AEW, All Elite Wrestling, you know, those guys represent the identity of AEW, so it’s very important to have them back.”
We’ll have to see what’s next for The Elite. Only time will tell how long it takes for them to appear on television once again, but they were backstage in Baltimore this week. As for CM Punk, it’s unlikely AEW fans will see him again any time soon.
