Five years ago, AEW entered the professional wrestling scene as a breath of fresh air and was welcomed with open arms by the fans and critics of the sport. As the company grew and signed new talents, it started becoming overcrowded, which led to an increase in the number of stars expressing frustration about their position in the Jacksonville-based company.

Former WWE Star Matt Hardy is the latest to voice his frustration. During the recent Extreme Life of Matt Hardy podcast, the veteran resented how he and his brother, Jeff Hardy, have recently been utilized by AEW.

"I mean, just creatively, like just the way we've been utilized like the last four months, it's been very frustrating. We've been very patient, but there has been a lot of frustration, things we've done and kind of how we've been utilized in some ways,” said Matt Hardy. ( H/t: WrestlingNews.co )

Wrestling fans lashed out at the 49-year-old for voicing his frustration, with most of them pointing out that Matt and Jeff Hardy have grown old and are past their primes. A fan said that the WWE and AEW do not need the Hardy Boys, as both companies are already brimming with world-class talent.

Here are fan reactions:
