Matt Hardy Bonds With Ali After Match

In a first-ever face-off, Matt Hardy took on Ali at a WWE live event in Salt Lake City, UT and the “Woken & Broken One” took a moment to make known how much the match meant to the longtime veteran as he credits Ali as one of the “most wholesome souls” he’s ever met.

This is my friend, @AliWWE. Ali is a Muslim. I was raised as a Christian. Ali is one of the best, most wholesome souls that I’ve ever met. That’s all that matters.

We wrestled for the 1st time EVAH tonight at #WWESaltLakeCity & delivered a show-stealer. Thank you, SLC!
