• Matt Hardy Could Be In AEW Before WrestleMania 36
According to PWInsider, Matt Hardy’s contract with WWE expires on March 1, 2020.
Hardy is expected to leave the company once his contract expires, as Hardy wants WWE to use him properly, but WWE only wants to use him as an enhancement talent when he’s working as a singles wrestler.
Money isn’t said to be a problem in his contract, creative is.
Matt is using his BROKEN gimmick in his YouTube series, and word going on is that he might join AEW as BROKEN Matt Hardy and it could happen before WrestleMania 36 (as his contract expires a month before Mania and there will be no ‘no-compete’ clause since he will complete his contract).
