On the latest episode of the “Extreme Life of Matt Hardy” podcast, the AEW star discussed a wide range of topics.
During it, Hardy looked back on his original pairing with Private Party when they were part of The Hardy Family Office group. They split for a period of time and then reunited at Rampage Grand Slam in 2022. Hardy noted that AEW President Tony Khan was initially hesitant to put them back together.
“The centerpoint of this story became him (Isiah Kassidy) and (Marq) Quen because they were the people I cared the most about. Butcher and Blade — if it would have just been the three of us in the beginning, if it would have been Matt and Zay and Quen, it would have been a whole lot better than what became the H.F.O. and it expanded and got crazy. But then anyway, we got back to this… We started this stuff, once again, off of television and then we got back onto television and I remember Tony (Khan) was half-ass hesitant to put us back together. Remember when we had that big Battle Royal deal? We did the three-way hug. That was in New York. Yeah, we pushed for that and I just remember when I came in, he said, ‘You were right! What a great call! What a great call!’ Because the people popped and it was f*cking midnight.”
