It seems pretty clear that WWE is planning on introducing the Broken gimmick at some point, as Matt Hardy has been sneaking it in during his promos and matches. But, they still have to work out a deal TNA/Anthem Sports, who are claiming ownership of the gimmick, before they’re able to debut it on television.

On Sunday’s Live Audio Wrestling podcast, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter was asked if WWE has worked out a deal with Anthem, and he said that, while a deal hasn’t been worked out, the two sides are talking.

“I think there’s something up,” said Meltzer regarding the Broken gimmick in WWE. “I know that there were rumors that there was a deal done, and Reby — Matt’s wife — said that’s not the case. I know that [WWE and Anthem] were in talks, and I just feel like they’re gonna get there at some point because Matt’s obviously sneaking it in. So, I think that it’s something where if the deal isn’t done, they’re confident enough that the deal will be done because if they weren’t confident Vince wouldn’t let this happen.”
