Matt Hardy has been in the professional wrestling business for a long time, and he recently made the jump to All Elite Wrestling back in March.
Matt has found success as a singles star throughout his career, and of course he and his brother Jeff built up quite the legacy in the tag team world as The Hardy Boyz.
Jeff Hardy has a reputation for being a daredevil and a carefree spirit, and people have been comparing AEW star Darby Allin to Jeff.
Matt Hardy recently spoke to Wrestling Inc. and he agree that Darby does remind him of Jeff.
“I do see that and Jericho actually said that to me early on before I went to AEW. After meeting Darby and speaking to him off camera, he has so many qualities that my brother has. He really has the spirit of, ‘Hey, this is who I am. If you like me, that’s cool. If not, I don’t give a sh*t.’ He’s carefree in that mentality and is a cool cat that doesn’t get shook. He very much reminds me of a young Jeff Hardy.”
Darby Allin has become one of the fastest rising stars in AEW. It certainly seems that the fans are behind him, so there’s no telling what the future might hold for him in All Elite Wrestling.
