Matt Hardy is a true veteran in the pro wrestling business, having constantly reinvented himself over the years. Due to his extensive knowledge of the pro wrestling world, his opinion is taken seriously all the time. That said, Matt Hardy wasn’t always the wise veteran that he is today and it appears Hardy took part in wrestler’s court after getting pranked in a big way.
In a recent episode of The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy, Matt Hardy recounted a time when he and his brother Jeff found themselves summoned to Werstler’s court during the early days of their career.
The whole situation started when Michael Hayes offered Matt and Jeff Hardy first-class plane tickets. Initially hesitant to accept the tickets, the two eventually accepted them. It later turned out that the tickets belonged to none other than Kane.
Before the wrestlers’ court proceedings took place, JBL offered some advice to the Hardys. He reassured them that the blame ultimately rested on Michael Hayes for providing the first-class tickets.
“JBL tells us right before the court, he said, ‘Look guys, we know you guys didn’t mean to do this. Michael’s the one who put you up in the first-class seat, it’s on him at the end of the day. So, we’re really going for him. You guys just be good, make sure you guys get the Undertaker a fifth of Jack [Daniels]. He said, ‘If you get that, you can buy off the judge.”
This was certainly an amusing story, which turned out to be a very good experience for both Matt and Jeff Hardy. Regardless, the Hardys are content in AEW right now and that’s all that matters.
