AEW Star Matt Hardy’s Take on the Uso Betrayal

Matt Hardy, a veteran in the wrestling industry, didn’t hold back when discussing the Uso brothers’ storyline. In the climactic moments of SummerSlam, Jimmy Uso turned on Jey, preventing him from securing a win in the Tribal Combat match against Roman Reigns.

This twist has drawn comparisons from fans to the time when Matt Hardy himself turned on his brother, Jeff Hardy, at the Royal Rumble in 2009. This betrayal led to a one-on-one match between the Hardy brothers at WrestleMania 25.

On his podcast, ‘Extreme Life Of Matt Hardy‘, Matt expressed his reservations about the direction WWE took with the Uso storyline.

He mentioned that while the WWE might have a grand plan in store, he personally felt the segment was very “WWE-ish”. Matt emphasized that this was merely his opinion and not a definitive take on the matter.

The Value of the Usos as a Tag Team

Matt Hardy further elaborated on the importance of the Uso brothers in the WWE narrative. He appreciated the bond the brothers shared, especially when Jey decided to distance himself from Roman Reigns and side with his brother.

Matt found it disheartening to see Jimmy betray Jey, especially since the Usos have been such a pivotal part of WWE storylines. He believes that the Usos are at their best when they’re together, supporting each other, rather than feuding.

Matt also touched upon the idea of Jimmy rejoining Roman Reigns. While he didn’t delve deep into how he would have approached the storyline, he did mention that he wasn’t particularly fond of the idea of Jimmy betraying Jey.
