One of the best feuds of the late 2000s may be recommencing in AEW.
Jeff Hardy and Cm Punk are no strangers to each other. They had a memorable feud in WWE which lead to Jeff leaving the promotion at the time being. The feud was built around the idea of Jeff and Punk being polar opposites, in particular, Jeff’s lifestyle vs Punk’s straight edge lifestyle. It was an entertaining spectacle for all involved to watch and to this day remains well critiqued as a storyline.
Now, both stars are signed to AEW and Jeff Hardy, on Freddie Prinze Jr’s podcast, Wrestling With Freddie, says that a face-off between the two is destined to happen and it’s guaranteed to be as good as before:
“[Winning the World Championship] was like a little boy’s dream come true, man. God, and then to do it over and over again. One of my favorite things, as far as being the World Champion, was working with CM Punk. It’s so crazy that we’re in the same company now and there’s a huge moment between me and Punk. It’s going to come, I’m sure, I think there’s a huge moment, just in the hallway, like me and Matt beat The Young Bucks or whatever at whatever pay-per-view is coming up, or whatever happens, but then we run into him, and me and punk just have a face-off.”Jeff Hardy on Wrestling With Freddie
