Jeff Hardy feels that he and CM Punk are destined to interact in All Elite Wrestling.
Jeff Hardy and CM Punk had a rivalry in WWE that catapulted CM Punk to a more permanent place in the World Championship picture and sent Jeff Hardy away from WWE for nearly a decade.
Now, for the first time in over a decade, both men are in the same promotion, AEW and Jeff Hardy, on Freddie Prinze Jr's podcast, Wrestling With Freddie, says that a face-off between the two is destined to happen and it's guaranteed to be money.
"[Winning the World Championship] was like a little boy's dream come true, man. God, and then to do it over and over again. One of my favorite things, as far as being the World Champion, was working with CM Punk. It's so crazy that we're in the same company now and there's a huge moment between me and Punk. It's going to come, I'm sure,” he said. “I think there's a huge moment, just in the hallway, like me and Matt beat The Young Bucks or whatever at whatever pay-per-view is coming up, or whatever happens, but then we run into him, and me and punk just have a face-off.”
Freddie Prinze Jr. really liked the idea, joking later that he was going to write up the storyline and send it to Tony Khan himself.
Before that can happen, Jeff Hardy has to make it past Adam Cole in the Owen Hart Foundation Memorial Cup Tournament. Check out the full card for the May 18 episode of Dynamite here.
