Matt Hardy stated that Vince McMahon is trying to 'confuse the marketplace' and that the WWE Boss still wishes that he had the original Hardy Boyz. The 46-year-old veteran believed that Jeff Hardy and Matt Riddle's alliance would not be successful.

Matt Hardy said that WWE would have fared better putting over Fake Razor and Fake Diesel than with the new iteration of the Hardy Boyz.
"You would have had a better chance with the Fake Razor and Fake Diesel. And remember this, if you are ever asked, 'Who is the greatest tag team of all time?' It's a simple, easy answer; The Hardy Boyz are the greatest tag team of all time. The truth...is the truth!"
