"
Matt Hardy has made an impressive list of achievements in the Squaring Circle since returning to the company that made him famous. Since then Hardy has been assisted by Bray Wyatt and the RAW Tag Team Championship alongside brother Jeff Hardy during their improvised debut.

Gutted Matt Hardy had to give up. The way he revived his career with the Broken Gimmick was fantastic and his return to WM33 is one of my favorite moments as a wrestling fan.

My introduction to wrestling was through video games and my 3 first favorites were Rey, Jericho and Matt Hardy. It's a strange feeling to see someone who has influenced my taste in wrestlers, without fanfares. I hope for the best for him.
