The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy podcast was an opportunity for Matt Hardy to talk about the Devil character in the company. Matt Hardy mentioned a few names he had in mind. “If I had to guess, that would be my guess as well.
I genuinely don’t [know]. I mean, that’s just like, from basic storytelling and just — from basic storytelling and which direction they would go, so yeah, I have no idea. [Adam Cole & MJF] bonded and their chemistry was so strong as they were doing that odd bedfellows tag team deal.
They win the [ROH World Tag Team Championship] and they are best friends. They get through that World Title match, MJF retains."- he said, as quoted by pwmania.com!
Adam Cole is the person who makes the most sense to him at the moment.
Hardy does not know in which direction AEW will go and what awaits them, but it is certain that he knows the current situation, and he can rightfully give his opinion. "So, it’s really interesting. They have a very intriguing dichotomy.
Adam, I feel, makes the most sense in the big scheme of things. Could it be The Kingdom [under the masks]? Could be those guys tied into it? Possibly, like in a faction, you have the Undisputed Kingdom ERA or whatever supergroup, which I don’t know, that doesn’t necessarily seem like it would fit perfectly in because I feel like everybody in that group needs to have some sort of personal issue with Max, and they’re not as strongly bonded or tied with Max.
I do think it would be, most likely, Adam Cole would be my guess. I’m just not sure who the guys are going to be. I’m really curious of the direction that AEW goes with this”.
