• Attitude Era Veteran Not Retiring – Cleared To Return
Attitude Era Veteran Matt Hardy noted last year that his lower back and pelvis started fusing together and this resulted in him not wrestling and teasing his in-ring retirement.
This maneuver was called EVENT OMEGA..
And is most likely the reason that I’ve recently learned that my lower back & pelvis have started fusing together. pic.twitter.com/FzYebvIIc0

However, Matt won’t be retiring. He announced on Twitter that he has been cleared and is in the best shape of his life!
No, I am not retired & not going to be retiring anytime soon. I’ve worked my ass off to rehabilitate & have physically been greenlit. My body is in the best shape it’s been in in years & I’m the lightest I’ve been in 20 years. https://t.co/XE1GzBP58A
