Not that there was ever much doubt, but after their first televised match together since 2019, we can confirm...
Watching Matt & Jeff Hardy wrestle as a team is really, really fun.
Heap some praise on Private Party, for sure. They’ve found their groove as a heel team, and were great foils on both the big spots and the little moments in their St. Patrick’s Day Slam showdown with the duo AEW calls The Hardys. Isiah Kassidy & Marq Quen’s built the heat up perfectly for the hot tag to Jeff.
The San Antonio crowd deserves a shout out, too. They were great all night, but were absolutely rabid to see the Charismatic Enigma do his thing.
Matt & Jeff are immediately set-up to continue working with the Andrade Family Office, which means matches with The Butcher & The Blade, and probably El Ídolo & a TBD partner. We’re also going to get a friendly competition with The Hardys allies Sting & Darby Allin soon, and seeing Brother Nero throw down with the wrestler everyone says is a younger version of him should be a blast.
The Hardys triumphant return is below, along with the rest of the highlights from last night’s Dynamite. As usual, AEW doles out YouTube videos slowly. But we’ve compiled what they’ve released as of this morning in a playlist, and tried to catch you up with the rest of the episode via Twitter clips below that.
