AEW Star Says He Could Have Stayed In WWE If Triple H Was ‘In Charge’

AEW Star Says He Could Have Stayed In WWE If Triple H Was ‘In Charge’ AEW, WWE

An AEW star has revealed that he could have stayed in WWE if Triple H was “in charge” instead of jumping ship to AEW in 2020.

Matt Hardy recently spoke with Daily Mail Online, where he revealed that WWE Chairman Vince McMahon saw the veteran transitioning into a producer role towards the latter stages of his run in the company, however, Hardy was not yet ready to call time on in-ring action.

Hardy said:

“Yeah, well, I think Vince had already made up his mind.

“He wanted me to make the transition into being a producer and that’s where he saw me at.

“So, I knew as long as he was in charge he’s ultimately going to get you there, because that’s just how this is.

“If Vince sees you in a certain light or certain way, and that’s where he wants he’s gonna get you there.”

Despite Vince seeing Hardy in a non-wrestling capacity, Triple H looked set to offer Hardy a lifeline on his black and gold NXT brand, even with plans for him to compete under his ‘Broken’ persona and lead his own faction, as well as conducting backstage producing responsibilities.

However, Hardy explained that if Triple H perhaps had more power then as he potentially does now, maybe his decision could have been different, saying:

“If it would have been the era where Triple H was in charge, I could have ended up staying then, maybe.

“But it was the right call for me to leave and step out to AEW.”

Hardy remains in AEW and is once again reunited with his brother Jeff, who recently returned to action after a near year-long hiatus following his June 2022 DUI arrest.

Hardy revealed what original plans were for him and Jeff leaving into the summer of 2022, to find out more click here.
