Matt Hardy Talks Jeff Hardy's AEW Return, Potential Jeff Dream Matches

Jeff Hardy sunk many hearts last week when he stated he was going to "retire" just nine days after his AEW return. Luckily, the line was a swerve, as he finished the sentence to clarify that he was going to "retire...from screwing up," in reference to his previous troubles with the law. During the latest edition of "The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy," Jeff's brother, Matt, said he was proud of Jeff's "AEW Rampage" promo delivery. They also knew the brief pause would generate momentary shock amongst the majority of fans who have grown to adore "The Charismatic Enigma."

Despite Jeff's rather rough last year, Matt admitted the two believed his return would be positively received by most viewers, and evidently it was. "The reason he was gone was a very bad reason, but it is what it is," Matt said. "He's Jeff Hardy, and at the end of the day, he is absolutely beloved...The 'welcome back' chants mean so much and I'm sure they mean so much to him too. Just to see that genuine love and support from the audiences, is great. I love to see it."

As Jeff shows no signs of retiring anytime soon, Matt revealed some of the dream opponents he has for brother, which includes former AEW World Champion Kenny Omega, and the current titleholder, MJF. Matt would also like to see his brother face off against TNT Champion Wardlow, "Jungle Boy" Jack Perry, and Jericho Appreciation Society member Sammy Guevara.

The exact date of Jeff Hardy's in-ring return has yet to be announced, but it has been confirmed that he will team up with his brother Matt, Hook, and Isiah Kassidy to take on The Firm (Ethan Page, Big Bill, Lee Moriarty, & Stokely Hathaway) in a Firm Deletion match at the Hardy Compound.
