“I’m so honored for people to say that, especially a guy like Darby Allin. I’ve never met him but when I watch him on AEW, I’m like “wow he’s really like me” and he’s actually like a real-life stunt man. I’ve always said jokingly, I don’t even think I know how to wrestle.”
“I think I’m just a stunt man when it comes to this stuff. I’m more about the moments and the highlights and the storytelling. Those big extreme moments, my career has been based around that.”
The former WWE Champion also spoke about the difference between AEW and WWE. Hardy noted that the WWE were set in their ways while AEW was open minded.
“It’s really cool. Matt is in AEW and before the pandemic hit, their crowds were incredibly on fire. It’s so exciting watching, they are very different than WWE. I don’t know how to explain it, but I think they are more open-minded, WWE is kind of set in their ways. This has changed many times over the years, especially since the Attitude era, it’s way different.”
