During the latest edition of his “The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy” podcast, AEW star Matt Hardy commented on the Tag Team Apocalypto that took place in Impact Wrestling back in 2016.
According to Hardy, Ricky Morton told him that WWE later called him about the Rock ‘n Roll Express being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame and says Morton believes the match played a role in WWE reaching out to the legendary tag team. He said,
“We were revisiting, in the scene, The Night of the Skywalkers. It really was Ricky’s like, ‘Alright, let’s just go up here and wrestle, and I love, too, we’re locking up and taking the arm. Ricky’s insane. All right, Ricky’s so great, though. He told me, ‘Thank you.’ He was so grateful for this opportunity. He said just whenever he was on the show, and this match had had some pretty decent buzz around it. He said, ‘I really felt like this is why WWE called us for the Hall of Fame after this. It was after we appeared on there. So thank you so much for keeping us in mind and wanting us to be there.’ I was like, ‘Dude, thank you for doing it. You made it so special.’”
