Chris Jericho spent some time with his fans virtually last night as he has been doing on Saturday night for the past few months. During the stream, Jericho spoke about the Matt Hardy situation, what his immediate thoughts were, and reiterated that Hardy was not hurt.
Jericho said, “I was scared at first. Obviously it was a stunt gone wrong. I just feel whenever you’re falling from that high, we should have some more tables out there and some pads on the floor but guys are brave, and thankfully, Matt was not hurt, no matter what you hear. He did not have a concussion. He was hurt. He banged his head. But, you know, the match ended very quickly after that and, you know, no one really knows what was going on in that. Thankfully, Matt wasn’t hurt and he was on the show this week and I’m sure he’ll be on the show next week, and for many weeks to come. So I’m glad we did not have anything bad happen there.”
This is different from what Matt’s wife Reby told fans, which was that Hardy did indeed have a concussion. Nevertheless, Hardy appeared on AEW Dynamite last week to inform viewers that he will be making a full recovery. You can see Jericho’s entire stream below.
