• Matt Hardy To Compete In A Gimmick Match On RAW
Attitude Era Veteran Matt Hardy will face Randy Orton in a “No Holds Barred” match on next week’s RAW.
Below is what WWE posted about this:
“This past Monday on Raw, Randy Orton subjected Matt Hardy to the same brutal Con-Chair-To that sent Edge out of Raw on a stretcher. Now, Hardy is coming for payback.
In the wake of Orton’s heinous attack, the former Raw Tag Team Champion is now slated to battle The Apex Predator in a No Holds Barred Match, placing Orton directly on a collision course with his most recent victim — to say nothing of a Superstar who refuses to take the abuse lying down.
After all, Hardy is as much a trailblazer as Edge, and his history is almost completely entwined with that of The Rated-R Superstar. Then again, Randy Orton seems to take a particular delight in destroying legends these days. He’ll be more than happy to do it again.
Tune in to Raw this Monday, live at 8/7 C on USA Network.”
