Isiah Kassidy has recently discussed how one-half of the Hardy’s helped them during their AEW tenure.
Private Party seem to be en route to reverting back to their gimmick-of-old, of which they became popular in AEW. Ever since they joined the ‘Hardy Family Office’, which then became the ‘Andrade Family Office’, the tag team have seemed to fade into the background, after initially bursting onto AEW programming with a bang, knocking the Young Bucks out of the first ever Tag Team Championship tournament.
“I feel like Matt Hardy helped us a lot. You may not have seen it on TV or in person, but behind the scenes, he helped us a lot. Even on TV, it translated from when we first started to when Matt Hardy came with us, it’s a big difference. You can see the difference from when we first started to now because he helped us with a lot of stuff, physically, mentally, how to go into matches, how to prepare for matches, all that good stuff. I feel like Matt Hardy personally helped us tremendously.”
During the conversation, Kassidy also spoke about his feelings about facing off against the Hardys.
“My dream, I don’t know if I ever wanted to make it big time, but I just really wanted to face the Hardy Boyz. That was my goal and my dream. It seemed unrealistic, but I got the chance to face the Hardy Boyz when I was 19 at a promotion in Queens called House of Glory. That is my favorite tag team. Those are the guys that got me into the business.”
After that day if I never made it, I would have been completely fine. If I died after that date, my life is made because I got to go into a ring with my childhood heroes, you know what I mean? Everything after that was just like extra. It was like a bonus. Then TV, extra, that’s cool. Contract, even better. Then years down the line, I get to be mentored up with one of my favorite wrestlers, Matt Hardy, and then we face them again, c’mon bro. God is good.”
Private Party was most recently seen on AEW Dynamite, losing to Swerve in our Glory in an AEW Tag Team Championship Match.
AEW’s next Pay Per View takes place this Sunday, as AEW All Out storms the NOW Arena in Chicago. You can watch the event live on FITE TV outside the US, and Bleacher Report inside the US. You can also catch the PPV in Theaters across the United States.
