Matt Hardy will leave AEW forever if he loses to Sammy Guevara at All Out

Matt Hardy wants to delete Sammy Guevara so bad that he is willing to put his AEW career on the line at the All Out PPV on September 5.

The feud between Matt Hardy and Sammy Guevara has been escalating into dangerous territory ever since Guevara split Hardy’s head with a chair. Hardy was out for blood in a tables match on last week’s Dynamite and opened a wound on the Spanish God’s head.

Hardy took little consolation in Sammy’s plasma, since Hardy went down in defeat via superplex through a table. Hardy is still intent on deleting Guevara.

“Congratulations, Sammy. You won. You beat me. You survived my wrath, and you left with only a large laceration on your head. You beat me. You said you were going to be beat me, and you beat me. And maybe it was too early for me to get back in the ring. I wasn’t all the way 100% out there. Bleeding internally, discombobulated, my equilibrium was all off, it was hard to climb, hard to stand. But regardless of any of that, you beat me.

But, Sammy, you got to know I’m not going to stop coming for you. Never. I’m never going to stop coming for you. Never, never, never, never, NEVER! Because this realm known as AEW is not big enough for the both of us. One of us must be deleted from this plane. And I will not stop coming for you until that happens.”

Sammy was asked for reaction after the tables match. The score is 1-1, and this has to end at All Out. Guevara will let Hardy pick the stipulation on the condition that Hardy leaves AEW after Sammy beats him.

Hardy accepted the challenge. The stipulation will be Broken Rules for the Daily’s Place Deletion. Rules include Last Man Standing to determine the winner, the finish can take place anywhere, there must be a winner, and Hardy will leave AEW if he loses. That message was heard loud and clear by AEW brass, and the match was made official for All Out.

That battle is going to be wild and definitely has potential to go the cinematic route. The stipulation of Hardy leaving if he loses makes sense for the story, but I hope it doesn’t spoil the outcome. I struggle to envision Hardy being gone so quickly. I’m also curious what would happen if Sammy does indeed win. Since I don’t believe it would actually be the end of Hardy, it makes me root for the Spanish God just to see how AEW crafts the story afterward. Either way, intrigue is abound and blood will be shed.

Do you like the rules for the Daily’s Place Deletion? Do you think Matt Hardy will actually leave AEW if he loses? How would you bring Hardy back to get around that stipulation?
