In an interview with Philly Voice, Matt Hardy said he is glad he was able to work with WWE again in the ring but also on the documentary. 

"I made this pact with my brother back in 2013, I said if we’re going to tell this story, we need to wait for the WWE platform. Fortunately, things worked out. I wanted it to be raw, I wanted it to be real, I wanted it to be a little dark, because there were times that were dark. I think it was a good story to show people that even if you do end up at a bad place in your life at some point, it’s never too late to change," said Hardy. 

The WWE 24 special debuted last month and Hardy was told the fans seemed to enjoy the finished product. 

“I just spoke to the people at the Network today, and of all the superstar 24’s they’ve had, ours was the most-watched within 10 days. I appreciate all of the fans who are taking the time out to spend an hour and are see our story and watch our journey," said Hardy. "I’m very proud of what they did. The Network was very proud of myself and Jeff for partaking in it and displaying such honesty. I’m really proud of the project,” he later added. 

In the rest of the interview, Hardy discussed his current storyline with Bray Wyatt and not teaming with his brother anymore. He and Wyatt are scheduled to defend their Raw Tag Team Championship at Extreme Rules but Wyatt was recently involved in a car crash
