Matt Hardy is the most-talked about free agent in wrestling and there’s good reason why considering the former WWE star’s legacy. Fans and media alike are quite curious as to what Hardy’s next stop may be and Sports Illustrated‘s Justin Barrasso got some quotes from the Broken Hardy brother for some thoughts regarding AEW and the talent he’d like cross path with if that indeed becomes his landing spot.
“I have a few great wrestling matches left in me, and I feel like one of those is with Kenny Omega,” said Hardy. “I’d love to have a one-on-one match with him. Hopefully that will happen down the road.”
In the piece, Hardy also mentions what promotions he has spoken with that perpetuates chin rubbing among the wrestling world.
“I am speaking with AEW, and I am very close with the Young Bucks,” said Hardy. “We’ve been great friends for a long time. They understand this business and know how to break the fourth wall and have fun with all of this. They really are special.
“I’ve also spoken with Impact and I spoke with the NWA. I had great conversations just this week with Triple H about NXT. I’m not sure where I’m going to go. From a character perspective, I want to go to an Arcadia. That’s where I can take the second coming of ‘Broken Matt’ and build upon it. I need a canvas where I can paint and collaborate.”
