Furthermore, Matt discussed the dynamic between the team and their fans, especially those who are deeply invested in wrestling. He mentioned how they plan to engage even the most knowledgeable fans, saying, “The best thing is, when the die-hard fans... react to stuff and also it gets underneath their skin, that still lets you know you can still do your job, you can play a role, and you can still even get the smartest of the smart fans.”
Concluding, Matt Hardy playfully referred to their new approach as “the Big Headed Hardys,” a nod to their evolving in-ring personas and storyline direction.
