On a recent edition of his “The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy” podcast, Matt Hardy lashed out at the claims that Chris Jericho uses his influence in AEW to benefit himself.

Several fans have alleged that Jericho’s storylines and feuds always end up making him look good while doing nothing for the other talents involved.


Hardy said, I don’t agree with it. I think Chris always tries to do what’s best, maybe not every single decision that’s made is perfect, but I think Chris is trying to do what is in the best interest of AEW as a whole. When you talk about timelines, and you talk about social media, it’s always going to be full of varying opinions. Even if you went out there and you were the perfect saint in every single way, there’s always going to be someone that’s going to criticize you about something. I think Chris is trying to do what’s best for business.”

On Friday night’s live episode of AEW Rampage, Don Callis revealed that due to Sammy Guevara being sidelined with an injury, he struck a deal with Prince Nana for Brian Cage’s services.

Cage will team with Konosuke Takeshita, Powerhouse Hobbs & Kyle Fletcher against Kenny Omega, Paul Wight, Kota Ibushi, & Chris Jericho next week on AEW Dynamite.
