Jeff Hardy Makes AEW Debut – Jeff Hardy just made his AEW debut on tonight’s Dynamite episode.
Matt Hardy was voted out of the AHFO faction and he was attacked by the entire faction, including Private Party.
Darby Allin and Sting went out to the ring to make the save but the odds were still against them. The AHFO overwhelmed the babyfaces until Jeff Hardy’s music played.
Jeff ran out to his old “Loaded” theme music and he helped to take out the heels with a Swanton Bomb. As noted earlier, Hardy’s non-compete expired last night and it had been expected for weeks that he would be joining All Elite Wrestling. For what it’s worth, Tony Schiavone said that Darby and Sting seemed surprised to see Jeff.
It was noted earlier today that the “Loaded” theme song that The Hardy Boyz used as an entrance theme for decades isn’t actually owned by WWE, so AEW has made inquiries about licensing the theme and it was used for the segment.
The former Team Xtreme is set to reunite for a legitimate tag team match this Saturday at a Big Time Wrestling event in Webster, MA. Their opponents will either be The SAT or The Briscoes, whichever team wins earlier in the night in a match.
WWE released Jeff Hardy in early December after he reportedly turned down an offer to go to rehab from the company. This came after an incident at the December 4 WWE live event in Edinburg, Texas, where Hardy abruptly disappeared through the crowd during a six-man tag team match. Due to the strange incident, Jeff was pulled from the road and subsequently released.
In the weeks that followed, it was reported that WWE Talent Relations head John Laurinaitis called Hardy to talk about possibly bringing him back, and offered a place in the 2022 WWE Hall of Fame. Hardy denied the offer and asked for his drug test results from when he was released in December because he expected he wasn’t going to test positive for any recreational drugs. It took Hardy and his wife Beth six weeks to get the results back, but when they did, Jeff indeed had passed his drug test and breathalyzer.
As a singles star, Matt Hardy has been working his “Hardy Family Office” gimmick in AEW since late 2021, managing stars like Private Party, Butcher & Blade, Andrade “El Idolo”, and others. He teamed with Isiah Kassidy and Andrade El Idolo in a losing effort against Sting, Darby Allin, and TNT Champion Sammy Guevara in a tornado trios match this past Sunday at AEW Revolution.
