That’s some quality trolling. There are certain wrestlers who just connect with the fans in the right way. You see them come to the ring and the fans instantly react, which is not something that happens very often. It can be a mixture of a lot of things and the wrestler’s theme music is one of them. That was used in quite the act of messing with the audience over the weekend.
AEW’s Matt Hardy appeared at a Battleground Championship Wrestling event at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Saturday. Hardy was scheduled to wrestle in a tag match and said that he was bringing in family to help. The Hardys’ WWE theme song played and AEW’s Marq Quen appeared, imitating Matt’s brother Jeff. Matt posted a video of the event to Twitter, laughing at the fans for being “extreme marks”.
This got some attention. Check out how the entrance went, plus what the real team looks like:
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that makes me smile as it really can be easy to mess with fans. Matt was clearly having a great time as he got inside the fans’ heads and Quen does a heck of a Jeff impression. This didn’t hurt anyone and turned Matt into a huge villain, so what else can you ask of him? It’s some quality trolling and that is something we could use more of these days.
