• Tonight’s RAW Appearance Could’ve Been Matt Hardy’s Final WWE Appearance
13 Time WWE World Heavyweight Champion “The Viper” Randy Orton came out on tonight’s RAW and began explaining why he attacked WWE Hall of Famer Edge two weeks ago on RAW.
This led to Matt Hardy making his way out and he talked about how he hated Edge back in the day (because of their situation with Lita), but then recalled the time they were best friends and made history together with their TLC matches.
Hardy said it broke his heart when Edge retired and wants to know what the hell is wrong with Orton for attacking Edge after the Rated R Superstar made his return after 9 years. Orton began explaining and immediately went for the RKO, but Hardy countered and delivered some punches to Orton.
However, Orton managed to hit Hardy with an RKO and then smashed Hardy’s head with Steel Chairs (in the same way he did to Edge).

With Hardy’s WWE contract expiring next month and no new deal being signed, it looks like this was Matt Hardy’s final WWE appearance, with Hardy being written off WWE programming with this vicious attack.
