Matt Hardy Talks Respecting Vince McMahon, Says He Left Because He Wanted To Be Happy

AEW superstar Matt Hardy responded to a fan on Twitter who questioned The Broken One on whether or not he still likes Vince McMahon. Hardy states that he holds a great deal of respect for the 74-year old WWE Chairman, but that they just fell on different sides of the creative table, and that he chose not to re-sign with the company so he could pursue a path that makes him happy.

Yes. I have great respect for Vince & will always be grateful for the opportunities he gave me. I had to leave because we didn’t share the same visions for my future. My decision to leave was ultimately based on business & to ensure my own happiness going forward.

Hardy's appearance on last week's AEW Dynamite is already one of the most viewed videos in AEW's Youtube history. He's set to have a one-on-one promo session with former world champion Chris Jericho on this week's show from Jacksonville.
