Last week, Matt Hardy commented that there was a strong chance of his gimmick changing in the near future.
It would appear that time is now, as Hardy has confirmed in a YouTube video that the new character will debut on tonight’s edition of AEW Dynamite.
Hardy debuted in AEW on the first empty-arena event in March, reviving his ‘Broken’ Matt Hardy character, this time fuelled by Damascus, apparently.
In this video, however, Hardy confirms that the new gimmick will combine this with a number of his previous gimmicks to create a refocused ‘Matthew Hardy’.
This change seems like it could have been driven by Hardy given the content he has been putting out over the change, so we can hope that this creative freedom on his character will continue to reinvigorate him.
