Matt Hardy Recalls Tony Khan Giving Him The Green Light To Turn Private Party Heel

Matt Hardy talks about turning Private Party heel.

Before Matt Hardy's influence, Private Party were two fun-loving, young babyfaces. even when Matt Hardy joined them, Matt was a babyface. The group turned heel not in AEW but in IMPACT Wrestling during a trip through the Forbidden Door.

Speaking about the decision to turn the group heal, Matt Hardy would say that it was actually during those two things that Tony Khan brought the idea up to him in the first place.

"I'll tell you this, as far as turning Private Party heel, whenever we went to IMPACT and did those tapings and their television which led to one of their bigger shows, like one of their bigger IMPACT app, IMPACT+ shows, whatever,” Matt Hardy recalled on the latest episode of his podcast, The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy. “Tony, there is when he said like,’ I think these guys can be heels.’ He said, ‘What do you think?’ I said, ‘Oh, yeah, man, let's do this.’ That's where he openly gave me the green light to turn them heel. He was committed to it. Just some of the work that they did. They were a little more aggressive. I know we had a lot of momentum, too, at that time showing up on IMPACT and then they turned heel while those IMPACT tapings were airing. It was really cool and there was a lot of momentum behind us together as a unit,” Hardy said.

Now the group is part of the larger AHFO. like professionals, they do all of their business in a stairwell. Learn why that is the case at this link.
