So he’s not done yet? There are a lot of names in wrestling and you never know when you might find a star. Sometimes these names go from absolutely nothing to major stars and that was the case with the Hardys. A team that started as low level jobbers turned into some of the biggest names of all time. They are still around as well with Matt making his return to the ring this week on Monday Night Raw. So what does that mean for his future?
According to PWInsider.com, Hardy’s contract expires in February 2020 and the two sides are currently in discussions on a new deal. The sides are not far apart on money, but since this is likely the final major contract of Hardy’s career, he would like to be used in a certain way. This seems to mean using some of his different characters, such as Woken Matt, rather than just being his usual self. His brother Jeff’s contract has been extended due to injuries and legal issues.
This was a heck of a moment. Check out the awesome 2017 return:
Hardy first appeared with WWE in 1994 as a jobber before making his full time start with the company in 1998 as part of the Hardy Boyz with Jeff. He has left the WWE and returned multiple times, with his most recent return taking place at WrestleMania 33 in 2017. His highest career achievement came in 2008 when he won the ECW World Title, holding it for four months. He also saw success in Impact Wrestling as Broken Matt along with his brother, with the success following him to Ring of Honor and back to WWE.
And things started back here. Check out one of Hardy’s first appearances:
Opinion: I can’t say I blame Hardy for wanting to do something like this as he certainly is part of one of the legendary tag teams in wrestling history. That being said, his original characters are absolutely fascinating and I can understand why he would want to get to showcase some of his creativity. Hardy is someone who clearly has a lot of ideas and it would be nuts to not see if any of them could draw some money.
