AEW star Matt Hardy has commented on Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks and says that you have to be a “f*cking idiot” to dislike The Elite.
On the 17th of August – and on the 150th edition of Dynamite – Kenny Omega made his highly anticipated return to AEW after nine months on the shelf due to a variety of injuries.
Omega joined The Young Bucks in the AEW Trios Title Tournament where they defeated Andrade El Idolo, RUSH, and Dragon Lee in the first round. This has set up a tantalising semi-final clash between The Elite and The United Empire led by Will Ospreay.
Speaking on The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy podcast, Matt Hardy shared his thoughts on Omega’s return, calling it “fantastic storytelling”:
“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.”
On a wider point, Matt Hardy discussed his opinion of Omega and The Young Bucks, saying that those that don’t like the trio simply don’t understand pro wrestling:
“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.”
