“I’ve been thrilled with my experience in AEW. I honestly can’t say enough good things about it. I wanted to pick up where we should’ve left off with “Broken” Matt Hardy and I did a little story segueing into that, which is Free The Delete, which is on my YouTube channel. That talked about how there is a new version of Matt Hardy coming to AEW. Once I started, from the jump, my plan was to do different versions of my personas throughout time, as the “Multifarious” Matt Hardy. Ultimately my goal is to lead that into something new, something to put that together into one entity, and have that be the next persona I really want to get over and run with.”
He also discussed his multiple personas and being involved in Being The Elite segments, saying:
“One of the things that was the trickiest to me, now that I started doing the first version again, which is basically Obi-Wan, “the sensei of Mattitude,” he always speaks with a certain cadence.”‘As, a, matter, of, fact, Matt, strongly, dislikes, mustard.” I noticed that there were times whenever I was doing that in certain bits, it was like I could feel “Broken” Matt Hardy speak, trying to come through. So that’s really one of the things you have to stay focused on. “Unkillable Matt” is just basically me. If I’m doing old-school Matt, it’s me as an indie guy trying to use old terms or trying to be a little more old-school in certain ways… Big Money Matt is kind of a wealthy jerk. So that’s my different motivations for all my different personas.
“A lot of it is collaborative. I will be honest, though, whenever we did this deal… “Broken” Matt, Damascus, recognized Nick Jackson’s essence of Cucamonga, that was an idea that I utilized in there with those guys… That was kind of a collab. I love working with those guys, especially on those BTE projects. The [Young] Bucks are amazing in-ring, and they definitely work with a modern, new-age psychology. But when it comes to entertainment aspects, those guys are incredibly cohesive and intelligent and really understand how to keep continuity. BTE, as over the top as it is, there’s great continuity to the show.”
