The Hardy Boys

The Hardys Got Heat From AEW Star For Getting Signed First To WWE


Matt Hardy recently came to Jungle Boy’s defense in a confrontation with Christian Cage this past week on AEW Dynamite.

During the heated segment, Christian disrespected the Hardy Boys and later slammed Matt through a table with the help of Luchasaurus.

On the latest edition of The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy podcast, the former Tag Team Champion spoke about Christian initially giving the Hardy Boys a lot of heat after they signed with WWE.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

Matt Hardy on Christian Cage giving them heat over getting signed by WWE first: “The only person that I can really think of that targeted us more than anybody else was Christian Cage. There was a point where Jeff and I were wrestling Furnas and LaFon and Jeff went for a springboard moonsault, and he slips off the top rope and he crashes on the floor. We had to change the whole match around from there because that ended up being the start of the heat. We had a somewhat competitive match with these guys. But Christian, he had heard that we had been signed and we’re going to be you know, employees of WWE and he’d been working to have a contract for so long. When ever Jeff slipped off the top rope, he said he cheered in his house because he was so mad that we got contracts, and he did. He cheered for Jeff’s Jeff’s destruction, which is a funny story that we still share all the time now, and eventually, he got signed and we all ended up being okay. We ended up being best frenemies, but that’s a very funny but true story. He was very envious of Jeff and I when we first signed and he cheered when Jeff slipped off the top rope from a moonsault body block to the floor.”

Matt Hardy on Christian getting signed after The Hardys and Edge: “He wasn’t frustrated because he was signed. He was already making money. That’s why Christian, He was the last one to get signed. That’s why he was showing that frustration and envy and jealousy. He’s good with jealousy.”
