Chris Jericho thinks Matt Hardy is making a great impact in AEW, but he's been too preoccupied with other things to give any thought to Matt Hardy’s “Elite Deletion” proposal.
In recent weeks, Chris Jericho has acted as the color commentator on AEW Dynamite and when he's not giving Tony Schiavone grief on the mic, he is presented in the Bubbly Bunch comedy skits along with the other members of the Inner Circle.
Looming in the background has been “Broken” Matt Hardy. Hardy challenged Chris Jericho to an “Elite Deletion,” presumably a cinematic type of match similar to the match he had with his brother, Jeff Hardy in IMPACT Wrestling. Chris Jericho says he hasn't given much thought to Matt Hardy's proposal because right now, AEW needs to focus on staying the course.
“I haven’t thought much about it because we’re not at that point. I think it’s great Matt is in AEW. I think it has made such a big impact,” said Jericho to TV Insider. “Right now, we’re just keeping the lights on and doing the best we can to make sure everybody is involved and continues their storylines. Then when the time is right, if there is an “Elite Deletion,” we’ll do it. We still have “Blood and Guts” [the postponed March special that was to feature Hardy and The Elite vs. The Inner Circle] to do and a lot of other stuff. For right now, we have to continue just being as creative as we can and come up with as many ideas as we can to keep the ball moving.”
Matt Hardy and Chris Jericho will face off on opposite ends of a tag team match on May 6 when Chris Jericho teams with Sammy Guevara to face Kenny Omega and Matt Hardy in a tag team Street Fight.
