Jeff Hardy wants to elevate the Hardyz back to the flagship show.
All Elite Wrestling indefinitely suspended Jeff Hardy in June 2022 after a DUI arrest, his third in the last ten years. Hardy has been on Rampage and Dynamite since his return, most recently teaming with his brother Matt in a loss to The Gunns on the June 25 edition of Dynamite. Speaking with YouTuber MuscleManMalcolm for his Muscle Memory interview series, Hardy explained that he wants to get back on track in the tag team division, hoping to win the AEW World Tag Team Championships and appear as more regular fixtures on Dynamite.
“It’s a constant battle for me to elevate myself back to the Dynamite show. Hopefully, eventually. [Rampage] is kind of the B Show, but you just go out there and give the people what they want and get their money’s worth. Naturally, the ultimate goal is for myself and Matt is the AEW World Tag Team Championships. We were so close before I got myself in a hell of a mess that I got myself into, but now that I’m coming out of that, it’s within reach. We’re using the Rampage moments to hopefully, eventually, create huge Dynamite moments.”– Jeff Hardy
Both Hardy brothers have been candid in talking about how much time they have left as active in-ring competitors, with Jeff saying in the same interview that he intends to keep wrestling until he’s 50 and Matt previously saying that he only wants to end his career teaming with his brother. The two were supposed to challenge the Young Bucks and Jurassic Express in a ladder match for the tag team titles on the June 15, 2022 episode of Dynamite, but Jeff was arrested days earlier. As one of the most beloved tag teams of their generation, a final run at the top of the division seems possible, and Jeff Hardy seems determined to make it so.
