Matt Hardy trolled fans at an independent show in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania last night by making them think that WWE Superstar Jeff Hardy was going to appear.
The Battleground Championship Wrestling event, which took place at the 2300 Arena, saw AEW stars Matt Hardy and Marq Quen compete in tag team competition.
Before Marq Quen made his entrance, Matt Hardy teased that his mystery partner was his "family", before the Hardy Boyz WWE entrance theme started playing.
“My partner…is family. Now cue his damn music!” Hardy said.
Fans were understandably rather excited about the prospect of seeing Jeff Hardy, who is a member of the WWE roster, at an independent show.
However, the cheers quickly turned to boos, as Marq Quen made his way out from the back, dressing in a similar way to Jeff Hardy and mimicking the entrance mannerisms of the former WWE Champion.
Hardy shared the clip on social media in the early hours of Sunday morning, noting that the "extreme marks" were excited to see his brother tonight.
Jeff Hardy has not publicly commented on the rib from Matt Hardy and Marq Quen at the independent show this weekend.
Jeff Hardy was in action at a non-televised event himself this weekend, defeating former NXT Champion Karrion Kross at a WWE Live Event in South Carolina on Sunday.News Now - Sport News
