The negotiations with The Hardys and GFW look to be dead, according to the latest Wrestling Observer newsletter. However, as noted last week, the whole ordeal appears to have cost GFW a sponsorship. Jimmy’s Seafood declined GFW’s offer to talk about a potential sponsorship opportunity until GFW released the rights to the “Broken” Hardy IP’s. Matt Hardy has been using #WOKENWisdom and #StayWOKE hashtags on Twitter so they appear to be moving on with a modified gimmick.
Dave Meltzer noted that the restaurant went after him on Twitter for reporting on the Braun Strowman incident with Karen Jarrett from a few weeks ago. The account claimed that the story was made up by Jeff Jarrett. The fact is that it happened in front of a lot of wrestlers and wrestling fans at Jeff Hardy’s CD release party so it would have been foolish to say that the story was made up since so many people were there to see what happened.
Jimmy’s Seafood’s loyalty stems from the fact that they prepare meals for Strowman. Here are some photos of Strowman, Roman Reigns, Luke Gallows, Karl Anderson, and Chris Jericho at Jimmy’s Seafood:
Roman Reigns, Chris Jericho, Braun Strowman, Luke Gallows, Karl Anderson, and many more WWE Superstars enjoyed dinner at The Famous Monday night! Whenever you're in Maryland, it's a must that you #GetFamous!
I should add that while the negotiations appear to be dead between The Hardys and GFW, Reby Hardy has not given up the fight on social media.
That is rude. It's their work & they do deserve recognition for it. It's not a bad thing to expect credit & respect. It's great fan art. https://t.co/4D9yxliLug
