AEW wrestler Matt Hardy has provided an update on his brother Jeff, and continues to tease that his “Broken” character might be in the works.
Jeff Hardy has been off AEW television since June 14th, when he was written off due to an arrest for driving under the influence and then beginning rehab. Since then, we haven’t had many updates about Jeff’s progress until now.
Speaking on The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy podcast, Matt was asked about Jeff and he had the following to say, “He’s basically been doing the same thing he’s been doing. He’s doing exactly what he needs to be doing to get where he needs to be in life. More or less, we’ve just got to get these legal issues behind him before we move forward, so that’s kind of where we’re at with Jeff, and we’re hoping that happens sooner rather than later.”
Matt has continued to appear on AEW television since his brother’s absence, teaming with Private Party and being absorbed into The Firm. Hardy and his Firm cohort Ethan Page have had their issues of late, which has led to Matt teasing a return of his “Broken” persona. When asked about it, Hardy said,
“I can say I am not a big fan of Ethan Page. I think he’s an a**hole. Very creative guy. I do think he’s an a**hole. It’s hard to call him an FI because he’s got a pretty good head on his shoulders, he just uses it for all the wrong things. So yeah, there’s was a point in there where I snapped a little bit. It could have been a flash of Damascus popping out of my mortal vessel. I don’t know. If we continue along this same path, and he keeps punishing and doing things to Private Party that negatively affects their career, then I might end up ‘Broken’ before it’s all said and done. I promise you, Ethan Page – if we end up going down this avenue, this is going to be something you will regret.”
