Matt Hardy: “This was probably my last match ever.”

Matt Hardy: “This was probably my last match ever.”

Matt Hardy has caused much speculation in the past weeks about his retirement. After bidding his tag partner Bray Wyatt farewell, and his wife Reby calling this a transitional time, it was clear that the 43-year-old’s legendary career was nearing its end. At a WWE live event in Corpus Christi, Texas, the ‘Woken One’ confirmed these speculations.

As a fan begged Hardy not to retire, he responded, “Unfortunately, I don’t have a choice. This was probably my last match ever.”

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported that Hardy further explained he would be undergoing physical therapy. This is somewhat expected. The 13-time tag champion made a name for himself performing dangerous spots as one half of the Hardy Boyz.

As covered by our own Andy Datson, Matt Hardy also posted a retirement message to social media.

“It’s time for me to go home. To be a father and a husband. I did so much more than I ever imagined I would do in this industry. Thanks for making this incredible journey with me, ladies and gentlemen. I love you all.”

Hardy’s tag partner Bray Wyatt led a beautiful send-off for the legend, met with a standing ovation by the Texas crowd.
