Matt Hardy has revealed how the much-anticipated return of Jeff Hardy to AEW came about and what to look forward to.
As previously reported, Jeff Hardy made his return to All Elite Wrestling on the April 12 episode of AEW Dynamite show, coming to the aid of his brother Matt Hardy, Hook and Isiah Kassidy on the show.
Matt Hardy recently spoke about the return on The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy, revealing:
“This literally came together the last few days. We’ve been talking about this for a while.
“Jeff’s eye will take a while — I kept making jokes, ‘How did you fly here today, did you take a red eye? Ahahaha.’ — He still has blood in his eye.
“They said that would probably take six to eight weeks. I put it out there, ‘In six to eight weeks, he should be good.’ His vision is fine, his eyes are stable, they’re working in sync now.
“He got cleared at the end of last week to do stuff physically.
“We had an idea of bringing him in and interjecting him into this scenario. The segment cut a little short, but here’s a great spoiler, watch Rampage on Friday and you’ll find out where this match is going to be and who the official competitors are. Jeff will be involved, HOOK will be involved, Isiah (Kassidy) will be involved. You’ll find out who from The Firm we’ll face on Rampage.”
Following his return to AEW television, Jeff Hardy posted a message of thanks on social media.
