This week on “The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy,” Chris Jericho and Matt Hardy talked about why they work programs with the younger talent in AEW instead of the other veterans.
Jericho said, “We’ve revamped ourselves and evolved. We never had to wrestle each other. We’ve done that before. The key to us staying at a certain level is working with younger guys. It elevates them and it elevates us too.”
“All my programs in AEW have been with younger guys. I could work Matt. I could work Christian. We don’t have to. We’ve done that before. This is not the fuc*ing nostalgia hour. This is about continuing to strive to evolve, build, and make new stars,” Jericho continued.
Hardy added, “The people know our exposure from our time in WWE. Then they see, ‘Oh my god, Orange Cassidy is hanging with Chris Jericho or Orange Cassidy is hanging with Matt Hardy?’ It just works.”
