Matt Hardy is a legend with a storied career stretching across decades and major promotions, so what did he think of the Satnam Singh debut?
Hardy has recently commented on the kerfluffle around Satnam Singh’s debut in a lights-out angle at the end of a recent AEW Dynamite and thinks Tony Khan is doing the best he can.
Speaking on his podcast, “The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy” on the lightning rod debut, Hardy said:
“I totally understand why this guy debuted in the spot he did. We obviously have a big budding television deal coming up in India and he’s going to play into that. I get the ramifications for debuting him, using him, and highlighting him. It’s a big deal.
“The use of turning the lights out and then turning them back on, if you do that, it feels like an anticipation within the fans and I feel like it has to be a known star. It’s got to be someone when the lights come on, you’re like, ‘Oh my God, it’s him.’ Sabu was so famous for doing that in ECW all the time. So I felt like that was definitely the reason why they should have brought him out in a different way.
“But it is what it is. We live and we learn. We all make mistakes, and Tony Khan, once again, three years in, you know, it is what it is. He’s trying his hardest and he’s trying his best, and I love the fact that he was very accountable for it and he owned it and he said, ‘Well, we probably should have done it differently.'”
Elsewhere on the podcast, Hardy spoke out against internet chatter insinuating that Hardy Boyz have been ‘demoted to Elevation’ and shares the backstage details of their conversation with Tony Khan directly regarding the appearance.
