Booker T on Matt Hardy's spot and what he can learn from Chris Jericho
On his recent Hall Of Fame podcast, Booker T spoke about Matt Hardy's spot from AEW All Out. Booker T also compared Matt Hardy's work to Chris Jericho's and suggested what he could learn from the former AEW World Champion at this age.
“When you’re doing this stuff, it’s as serious as it can possibly be. It’s not a game or anything like that. You putting your life on the line every time you go out and do this stuff. Matt Hardy is 45 years old. You don’t see Chris Jericho jumping off nothing, do you? I just think that kind of stuff is well past Matt Hardy’s capabilities. Not that he can’t go out there and do it, but he gotta understand there’s gonna be a price to pay at 45 doing that stuff as opposed to doing it at 25 and 35. It just is.”
