There will be no leg slapping while laughing in Matt Hardy's locker room.
Monday's episode of Being The Elite opened with Christopher Daniels telling a joke so funny that he had Matt Jackson slapping his leg. That's a big "no-no" from Matt Hardy, who pointed out the "No leg slapping while laughing" sign in the room that is rented from him.
Daniels, as the head of talent relations, was forced to fine Matt $500 for his actions.
Nick said, "That's a weird ass rule to do on the boys.
Hardy fired back, "You young kids are obsessed with slapping your leg. I knew it'd be an easy way to make some cash."
Nick responded, "Maybe that's why [Vincent Kennedy McMahon] did that as well."
Matt Jackson now believes AEW is getting too corporate.

Matt Hardy is about to collect a lot of money in the AEW locker room. Too bad it all goes to Hangman Page.
