Chris Jericho lost the AEW Championship at a steakhouse and launched a worldwide investigation before eventually recovering it a day later. The title may have been found, but the whole story became a major talking point. WWE superstar Matt Hardy joined in on the fun and mimicked Jericho’s stolen belt in a video he posted on YouTube.
Matt Hardy and his wife Reby chose the Longhorn Steakhouse in Florida for their date night, and after their dinner Hardy apparently had his ‘belt’ stolen. In the video, Hardy runs back to the restaurant, gets his belt back and asks his wife to get in the limousine.
Hardy clearly tried to poke fun at Jericho’s incident, and the whole segment was quite hilarious. Matt Hardy is known to innovate with his YouTube channel and this was yet another instance of Hardy doing weird things.
Elsewhere, Matt Hardy’s boss Vince McMahon is looking to get a head start on Monday Night Football with a strong showing of Monday Night RAW next week. RAW returns to Madison Square Garden next week for the first episode in over a decade, and McMahon wants things to be perfect.
Vince McMahon called a special meeting with the writers on Friday, according to Bryan Alvarez of Wrestling Observer, and had a lengthy meeting in which the writers were instructed to be ‘creative’. McMahon demanded lots of unique ideas for the upcoming shows.
The episode of RAW is quite major for several reasons. It goes head-to-head with Monday Night Football once again, it’s the final RAW episode before Clash of Champions and it is scheduled at the iconic MSG.
With four big matches already announced and an appearance from Stone Cold Steve Austin already scheduled, expect the RAW episode to be absolutely bonkers!
