— After initially making comments on his podcast that appeared to imply that he witnessed the backstage fight involving members of The Elite and CM Punk, Matt Hardy has clarified his remarks and confirmed that he wasn’t actually present that night but has seen the process progress through its various levels. Hardy had initially stated: “I will say this right here and right now: those guys (Young Bucks, Omega) didn’t do anything wrong in this situation. If anything, they were the victims and I’m telling you that from a first-person perspective. I was there, I witnessed it all.”
— Earlier today, Hardy set the record state by saying that his words were misconstrued and that while he wasn’t there to witness the incident itself, he witnessed the “entire process” in real time play out over the months. He doubled down that The Elite were not to blame from his perspective.
My comments from this week’s @matthardypod have been misconstrued. I WAS NOT at All Out 2022. I DID NOT say I witnessed the events at All Out. I witnessed the entire process in real time over the months & stand by my comment that the Elite were not in the wrong.
