If you ask Matt Hardy, he was purposely kept off of a recent list released as this week's "WWE Top 10" episode as part of the ongoing surge of WrestleMania-related content being churned out by the company as they prepare for their two-night extravaganza, WrestleMania 37, on April 10th and April 11th.
As noted, on Sunday morning, WWE released the latest installment of their weekly digital series, "WWE Top 10," which ranked the loudest pops in WrestleMania history.
A glaring omission from the list was the passionate reaction from the 75,000+ members of the WWE Universe packed inside Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida back at WrestleMania 33 on April 2, 2017.
The show, which was hosted by The New Day, featured the fun-loving WWE trio revealing the surprise returns of The Hardy Boyz -- Matt Hardy and Jeff Hardy -- who would go on to defeat the teams of Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson, Cesaro & Sheamus, as well as Enzo Amore & Big Cass in a Fatal-4-Way Ladder Match to capture the WWE Raw Tag-Team Championships.
Hardy took to social media shortly after the list of the loudest pops in WrestleMania history was released via the official WWE YouTube channel and subsequently promoted via the company's official Twitter feed, chiming in with his thoughts on being left off of the list, citing working for AEW as the most likely reason for the promotion showing their latest example of "revisionist history."
Featured below is the statement made by "Big Money" Matt Hardy via his official Twitter feed, which also includes a video clip of the announcement of the surprise return of The Hardy Boyz by The New Day, which allows fans to judge for themselves if the raucous response from the 75,000+ WWE fans in attendance at WrestleMania 33 deserves to be on the list of the top ten loudest pops to ever take place on "The Grandest Stage of Them All."
"For everyone who’s tweeted me, our WrestleMania 33 return isn’t included because I’m now at AEW. I’ve always felt it’s a damaging practice to selectively revise history with diehard fans. You tell me, should our WrestleMania 33 return be on this list?"
Let Matt Hardy know what you think by replying to the tweet, which you can check out via the post embedded below via his official Twitter feed, which is located @MATTHARDYBRAND.
