Matt Hardy weighs in on AEW debuting so many free agent signings in a short amount of time

Vaseline 2 months ago

March 2024 was a big month for AEW as the company officially welcomed three of the hottest free agents in the world. At Revolution, Will Ospreay wrestled his first match as an AEW contracted wrestler when he faced Konosuke Takeshita. Days later, on the March 6 edition of ‘AEW Dynamite’, Kazuchika Okada became All Elite when he officially joined forces with The Young Bucks, and a week after that, Mercedes Mone arrived on the ‘Big Business’ edition of ‘AEW Dynamite . While all three fulfilled their roles at AEW, could the company have done anything differently? Former AEW star Matt Hardy believes so as he revealed what he allegedly did on his “Extreme Life of Matt Hardy” podcast.

“You have Will Ospreay show up, boom, it’s a big deal. I feel like that should have been talked about for four to six weeks,” said Hardy, who expressed the same about Okada and Mone. He believes that AEW possibly should have spaced out the debuts to make each one feel more special. “When there’s a lot going on, you’ve put a lot of things into the program and into the eyes of the viewer. I feel like these events could have been longer and taken more time to develop, really highlighting how important it is to bring this huge superstar to AEW.”

In addition to Ospreay, Okada and Mone, AEW has also signed Deonna Purrazzo and Bryan Keith. Meanwhile, TNA legends Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley, better known as the Motor City Machine Guns, are rumored to become All Elite in the near future.
