Jeff Hardy Signs With AEW
Business hasn’t been booming for the Andrade-Hardy Family Office, and after another loss at AEW Revolution, Andrade El Idolo called an emergency board meeting on the March 9 episode of AEW Dynamite. But business picked up when Jeff Hardy crashed the party.
Matt Hardy, clad in casual clothes, said he wanted to start fresh and make amends, but he stated that Andrade called the meeting because he wanted to fire him. He then apologized to his “kids”, Private Party for transforming into an “asshole” when he puts on a suit. Andrade responded by saying the group will put the matter to a vote. The company then went around by casting their votes. Private Party initially voted “stay” for Hardy, but they turned on him.
The duo voted him out, and the Andrade Family Office beat Hardy up.
Hardy was heavily outnumbered, but Darby Allin and Sting made the save. Still, the numbers advantage was in Andrade’s favor until the arrival of Jeff Hardy tipped the scales in favor of the good guys.
Matt hit The Blade with a Twist of Fate, and Jeff followed with a Swanton Bomb. Matt and Jeff then embraced to complete their reunion. AEW President Tony Khan subsequently confirmed that Jeff signed with AEW.
WWE released Jeff Hardy in December. During his lengthy time with the company, he won the WWE Championship. He and Matt held the Tag Team Championship nine times in WWE. Jeff is also a three-time TNA World Heavyweight Championship. Matt and Jeff also won the Tag Team Championship in TNA/IMPACT Wrestling and Ring of Honor.
