Now six days into March of 2020, there is one major story looming over every top professional wrestling promotion currently active, where will Matt Hardy go next?
Becoming a free agent on March 1st, Matt Hardy decided to let his WWE contract expire due to not feeling as though he was being used to the best of his ability both creatively and physically. In a YouTube video released on March 2nd, Matt Hardy would discuss keeping his options open and keeping an eye on every major promotion from AEW, NWA, NXT, and everything in between.
“My goal is to legitimately surprise people and draw emotion from them. I always want to entertain the audience and keep them guessing. I’ll make a decision within the next 30 days, and it could be by next week. It all depends on how everything comes together,” Matt would say. “I am speaking with AEW, and I am very close with the Young Bucks. We’ve been great friends for a long time. They understand this business and know how to break the fourth wall and have fun with all of this. They really are special. I’ve also spoken with IMPACT and I spoke with the NWA. I had great conversations just this week with Triple H about NXT. I’m not sure where I’m going to go. From a character perspective, I want to go to an Arcadia. That’s where I can take the second coming of ‘Broken Matt’ and build upon it. I need a canvas where I can paint and collaborate.”
Matt would also note that he would like a one-on-one match with Kenny Omega at some point in his career.
