Matt Hardy and Chris Jericho waged many battles during their WWE days. Today, they are both veterans of the AEW locker room.

When he first brought the 'Broken Universe' to AEW, Matt Hardy and Chris Jericho had a chance to work together in a new environment. Not only was AEW a brand new company, but they could also be creative because there were no fans in attendance. The verbal back-and-forth eventually led to a memorable Stadium Stampede match.

Matt Hardy has fond memories of his feud with Chris Jericho. Here's what he told Sportskeeda Wrestling during an interaction conducted by Eurosport:

"It was fun to interact with Jericho. Chris Jericho is one of the greatest of all time, no doubt about it. And just to be able to verbally go back and forth with Chris Jericho and have fun with him, he's just a great person to work with and work off of. So, that was very enjoyable for me," said Hardy.
