All signs seem to point towards Matt Hardy leaving WWE in a couple of months when his contract expires.
For the second consecutive week, Hardy was squashed on Monday Night Raw. Last week he was quickly beaten by Buddy Murphy and then he lost a quick match to Drew McIntyre on this week’s show.
Hardy recently teased something happening in “13 weeks,” which would line up with the time his WWE contract expires.
As noted earlier, Hardy tweeted about his “countdown to Arcadia,” in response to a fan who pointed out that he suffered another loss this week.
In a later tweet, he responded to Busted Open Radio’s Dave Lagreca saying that Matt deserves better. Matt responded, “Thank you, my friend. We will get there. I always overcome & defy the odds, it’s what I do.. WHO I AM.”
In another tweet, Matt said he returned to WWE because he wanted to finish with the company the right way. He tweeted: “I needed to return to @WWE to finish in the right way. I didn’t want 2010 to be my finale. I returned in the most EPIC way & repaid my debt. I waved the #WWE flag with pride & worked hard to be a model employee. My conscience is clear & I am at peace.”
Matt’s last run did not end under the best circumstances because he was dealing with personal issues. He has cleaned his life up and although he hasn’t been pushed to the level he should be at, it seems he has his life together and he has redeemed himself to the fans who remembered the end of his last WWE run.
So what is going on with Matt Hardy? As previously noted, he has been in talks with the company about a new contract and they are close on financial terms. However, the sticking point for him is how would he be used going forward? If he signs another WWE contract then he would want to be utilized better since it would likely be the last contract of his wrestling career. At this point, based on how he’s been booked in the last couple of weeks, WWE has given no indication that they plan on doing anything more with him except using him as an enhancement talent.
