WWE Releases Statement On Matt Hardy’s Release

WWE has released a statement on the release of Matt Hardy. In contrast to their usual “future endeavors” sentiment, WWE provided a rundown of his career, framing him in a good light.

The following is the full quote from WWE.com:

“Matt Hardy’s contract with WWE has expired.

A trailblazer throughout his 19-year WWE career, Matt and his brother Jeff pioneered the first tag team Ladder and TLC Matches in WWE, stealing the show at WrestleMania on several occasions. Matt, who competed in his first WWE match in 1994, captured nine tag team titles with Jeff, in addition to two other reigns with MVP and Bray Wyatt.

He is also a former ECW, United States, European, Cruiserweight and Hardcore champion, and he won the Fifth Annual Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 34.

But Matt is perhaps most revered for the uncanny connection he has cultivated with the WWE Universe over the years, even as his character has transformed. From a gravity-defying daredevil willing to take any and all risks to becoming one of the most eccentric personas ever seen as “Woken” Matt Hardy, all incarnations had one thing in common — the adoration of WWE fans.

WWE thanks Matt Hardy for his contributions to sports-entertainment and the WWE Universe and wishes him the best in his future endeavors.”

Hardy is now a free agent and has been teasing what is next for his future. Most are expecting him to be revealed as the Exalted One in AEW but for now, all we can do is speculate.

His first post-WWE appearance is set for March 7 as he is scheduled to appear at The Big Event 18.
