Matt Hardy Speaks About Satnam Singh’s AEW Debut

Matt Hardy is a popular AEW Superstar, and he spoke about Satnam Singh’s debut on AEW. Matt Hardy spoke about this on The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy. Satnam Singh is a former basketball player. According to many journalists and wrestling personalities, Satnam Singh’s debut was horrible.

Even Tony Khan stated that the debut was not up to par. A few weeks ago Satnam made his debut on Dynamite after Samoa Joe defeated Minoru Suzuki for the ROH TV Title. At that time, Satnam aligned himself with Jay Lethal and they took down, Joe.

The way the debut took place was criticized as AEW used a lights-out effect which is usually reserved for well-known wrestlers.

Matt Hardy Believes Singh's AEW Debut was a Mistake

Even Tony Khan admitted that having the lights go out wasn’t his decision and he himself believe it was a mistake.

It actually signified that a major star would come out to confront Joe. Matt praised Khan for actually admitting his mistake publicly, and Matt himself believes that the debut was a mistake. “I totally understand why this guy debuted in the spot that he did,” Matt Hardy said.

“We obviously have a big budding television deal coming up in India and he’s going to play into that. And I get the ramifications for debuting him and wanting to use him and highlight him, it’s a big deal.

The use of turning the lights out and then turning them back on, if you do that, it builds anticipation with the fans and I feel like it has to be a known star. It’s got to be someone when the lights come on they’re like, ‘oh my god, it’s him!’.

Sabu was so famous for doing that in ECW all the time but whenever you turn off the lights, there’s automatically anticipation from the crowd. Like, oh my god, who are we going to see, who are we going to see, it’s going to be a surprise, it’s going to be great.

It needs to be someone that immediately when the crowd sees them, they know who it is. Like, oh my god, this is great, Samoa Joe is here or Jeff Hardy is here — whoever it is. I feel like that was definitely the reason why they should’ve brought him out in a different way.

But it is what it is, we live and we learn. We all make mistakes and Tony Khan, once again, three years in, it is what it is. He is trying his hardest and his best, and I love the fact that he was very accountable for it and he owned it”.
