Matt Hardy talks about his time in AEW thus far and how easy it is for him to jump between characters.
Matt Hardy has not only brought his “Broken” character to All Elite Wrestling but he has seemingly brought along the whole Matt Hardy Multiverse. Since debuting in March, Matt Hardy has shown that he can still utilize all of his characters presented throughout the years.
Speaking with Sportskeeda, Matt Hardy opens up about enjoying his time in his new home and how the character changes come about.
“I've been thrilled with my experience in AEW. I honestly can't say enough good things about it. I wanted to pick up where we should've left off with ‘Broken’ Matt Hardy and I did a little story segueing into that, which is Free The Delete, which is on my YouTube channel,” Hardy recalls. “That talked about how there is a new version of Matt Hardy coming to AEW. Once I started, from the jump, my plan was to do different versions of my personas throughout time, as the "Multifarious" Matt Hardy. Ultimately my goal is to lead that into something new, something to put that together into one entity, and have that be the next persona I really want to get over and run with.”
Continuing on, Matt Hardy discussed his multifarious characters.
“One of the things that was the trickiest to me, now that I started doing the first version again, which is basically Obi-Wan, "the sensei of Mattitude," he always speaks with a certain cadence. ‘As, a, matter, of, fact, Matt, strongly, dislikes, mustard,’" Hardy says as an example of his cadence. “I noticed that there were times whenever I was doing that in certain bits, it was like I could feel 'Broken' Matt Hardy speak, trying to come through. So that's really one of the things you have to stay focused on. ‘Unkillable Matt’ is just basically me. If I'm doing old-school Matt, it's me as an indie guy trying to use old terms or trying to be a little more old-school in certain ways... Big Money Matt is kind of a wealthy jerk. So that's my different motivations for all my different personas.”
Currently, Matt Hardy is mostly being utilized as the manager of the young tag team Private Party. They can be seen every Wednesday night on AEW Dynamite on TNT.
