For the ones who need a quick summary of what happened on the latest edition of Jericho's podcast, check out the points below:
#1 Has nothing but praise for The Dark Order
Over the past few weeks, The Dark Order had been teasing the arrival of The Exalted One, with several tweets suggesting that the mystery man would be Matt Hardy. In the end, The Exalted One turned out to be Brodie Lee.
Hardy praised The Dark Order for keeping the "smart fans" guessing and speculating that he would be revealed as The Exalted One. Matt knew that fans were expecting him to land in AEW, but he was hell-bent on wanting them to guess as to what role he would end up playing in the promotion.
#2 Shares his thoughts on debuting in an empty arena
Matt dubbed his All Elite Wrestling debut as a "home run", even though there wasn't a live crowd to react to the same. Hardy stated that based on the reaction of the TV audience, his debut was a hit.
Fans might be aware of the fact that the Coronavirus pandemic has forced wrestling promotions to hold their shows behind closed doors, without an audience.
