As we noted before, Matt Hardy became the TNA World Heavyweight Champion at Bound For Glory 2015. Hardy pinned Drew Galloway (f.k.a Drew McIntyre in WWE) to win the title, so former champion Ethan Carter III wasn’t even involved in the finish. It should be noted that Jeff Hardy was the special guest referee for the match.
Matt Hardy’s first storyline as TNA World Heavyweight Champion has already begun as EC3 has obtained an injunction against Matt Hardy, and Matt Hardy is now banned from TNA Impact Wrestling.
