Matt Hardy has some strong words for critics of The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega, saying people that don’t understand them don’t understand pro wrestling.
Kenny Omega recently returned to AEW television after several months away due to injury issues. The Best Bout Machine stood side-by-side with long-time allies The Young Bucks as they defeated La Faccion Ingobernable in the AEW Trios Title Tournament.
Speaking on The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy podcast, Matt Hardy – who has had more than his fair share of run-ins with The Elite – discussed Omega’s return and explained why he enjoyed it:
“I enjoyed it. I really appreciated how he was wearing the shirt and he was taped underneath that, and it’s he was still selling his injuries as he came back a little prematurely, supposedly. The way he was selling all these major injuries that were reported he had in the context of the match was fantastic storytelling I love that match.”
Matt Hardy went on to comment on The Elite generally, noting that the trio are not appreciated by all, but he had some choice words for those that do not consider themselves fans of Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks:
“They’re very polarizing all three of them. Kenny Omega, Matt Jackson, Nick Jackson, The Young Bucks, people who don’t get how good they are, they’re just missing out and they do not get pro wrestling. They may think they get pro wrestling but they do not.”
“If you are hating on Kenny Omega, Matt Jackson, and Nick Jackson, you’re a f*cking moron. I mean, it is what it is. They are great and I will defend them to my dying day. Because they are amazing. They are all groundbreakers they have set so many trends. The three of those guys are one of the major reasons AEW is in existence.”
“They really really are and the stuff they did in New Japan was fantastic and they’ve all broken so many boundaries. They’ve gone so much further than anybody thought they would. So I’m gonna say it again, if you dislike Matt Jackson, Nick Jackson, and Kenny Omega, you are a f*cking idiot.”
