Matt Hardy thinks a World Title run for himself in AEW may not be in the cards.
Matt Hardy is a veteran of the ring and in AEW, he is regularly working alongside younger talent to pass along his wisdom. When Matt Hardy first joined at the promotion in March 2020, many fans were excited to see the different characters he would bring to the promotion and he was being touted as one of the top names there at the time.
Now, with names like CM Punk, Bryan Danielson, Adam Cole, and more in the fold, Matt Hardy believes that while he would love to be a champion in AEW soon, a World Title reign might be beyond a possibility.
"I would love to win a championship in AEW sooner than later. As far as being the World Champion or being what the company is built around, at this stage of the game, for me, I don't know if that's necessarily the best fit," said Matt to Essentally Sports, If there was a story and things fit in the story and it made sense, then maybe so, but I don't think it's a necessity. Matt Hardy is Matt Hardy and people know who I am. I'm known around the globe for my history. I don't necessarily need a title to make me more popular or make me more over, but if the right story fit where it was time for me to win a title in whatever name, then I could see that happening, but as far as needing to be the champion, I don't need to be. There are a lot of young guys who would be much better served in that position."
