Matt Hardy spoke to the New York Post ahead of Saturday’s Double or Nothing pay per view. Here are the highlights: 

Tony Khan:

“He is an extremely passionate supporter of the wrestling genre. He was a fan back in the day and now him being the boss, giving directions, he has a vision of what he wants to do. But he also includes the performers’ vision in that vision and they almost intersect and they make one vision and move forward. I always feel like more than anybody else in the wrestling business today, he as the head of the organization has his finger on the pulse of the 2020 wrestling fan. He really understands what they want. I think he also understands something that might not be his favorite, but he understands why they are good for the product. Even something like “Broken” Matt Hardy and some of the over the top and the theatrics, the unpredictability and the craziness is good for the casual fan as well and that is what they are continually trying to rope in.”

Him being teased as Dark Order’s Exalted One:


“I was never, and you can quote me on this, I was never, ever gonna be the Exalted One. I said, let me tease that. It makes sense and it can fit and I can play stuff off of it with my social media and making people go down a certain road and think a certain way. We just decided like if Brodie Lee was just quiet and I can kind of do this, everyone is gonna be expecting me. We knew if he came out, anyone who was disappointed it wasn’t me or (that) I didn’t show up, they were still gonna get me 45 minutes later in the show. It would have been amazing if it had been done before a live crowd. I would have been so, so cool, but it is what it is.”
