Matt Hardy is attacked on AEW Dynamite

Right after the first match of the night, AEW cameras went backstage, where Matt Hardy was screaming in agony. As Alex Marvez checked up on him, the Private Party tried to find the attacker. They revealed that the three of them were discussing match strategies when Hardy got attacked out of nowhere.

Then, Chris Jericho and Jack Hager literally slid into the crime scene and joked that Hardy’s leg could be amputated. Jericho (with a baseball bat in his hand) said Matt Hardy was not the luckiest man in wrestling this week.

Jericho and Hager then warned “the kids” (Private Party) that they were going to see them later that night. In their match later, Jericho pinned Kassidy and picked up the win.

Coming back to Matt Hardy, this month has not been favorable to the industry veteran. Earlier this month, he suffered two intense head injuries at AEW All Out. Thankfully, there were no concussions.

Here are some fan reactions after Matt Hardy’s attack on AEW Dynamite.

It is highly unlikely that Hardy’s rival Sammy Guevara attacked him. With the video, Jericho’s involvement is clear and we might be heading into a rivalry between the two WWE veterans.
