Matt Hardy reveals clause in his AEW contract

Matt Hardy’s debut on AEW Dynamite was one of the few positive stories this week for wrestling fans since so many shows have been canceled or postponed.

Once travel restrictions end, we may see Hardy in a different ring besides AEW as he has revealed that his contract allows him to wrestle for New Japan Pro Wrestling.

Hardy took to Twitter on Saturday to thank everyone who has shown support, including some fans who are not happy about his decision to leave WWE.

Hardy tweeted, “

Social Media is the ultimate melting pot of opinions. My recent feedback has been monumental.

For everyone that’s bombarded me with adoration, joy & support.. THANK YOU.

If you’re not happy with MY career decision & have let me know about it.. Thank you. I’m flattered you care.”

A fan tweeted that they would love to see Hardy in New Japan Pro Wrestling.

Hardy responded, “My contract would allow that. Truth be told, I’d love the opportunity to perform on a NJPW WrestleKingdom show in some capacity.”

It looks like Hardy has a similar deal as Chris Jericho and Jon Moxley. They are not full-time wrestlers for NJPW but they wrestle on big events. Moxley and Jericho were both in matches at Wrestle Kingdom 14 in January.

Of course, the contracts are only for matches overseas so Hardy would likely not be able to work NJPW shows in the United States.
