AEW Might Be Planning Major Heel Turn For Matt Hardy

AEW has a lot of things in the pipeline, which fans will get to see next year. It seems the company has teased something interesting for Matt Hardy during this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite.

Following his AEW debut, Matt Hardy only stayed in the role of a babyface. But that might change soon. On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer said that “most of the eliminations had a purpose” during the Dynamite Diamond Battle Royal.

“Matt Hardy turning on his own partners and eliminating them […] from what I was told Silver got one of the biggest pops coming out from anyone who was there. Silver was a total babyface and then Hardy eliminated him and that was on purpose because they know nothing is going to get people to boo Matt Hardy unless they eliminated [someone] who was so over.”

It will be interesting to see how they gradually turn Matt Hardy heel.
