On Wednesday, Reby Hardy fired off another series of tweets directed at Jeff Jarrett and Ed Nordholm. At one point, it seems like the whole mess over the rights to the “Broken” Universe characters was about to be settled, but now it looks like things will get worse before a settlement is reached.
The latest tweet storm started after someone replied “that’s bs” to someone saying that GFW would have signed off on a settlement if Hardy would have kept quiet on social media. Again, even if GFW believes they are right, the court of public opinion has already ruled against them and they would be much better off if they worked out something to end all of this so that this could can be lifted. It’s already tough to get decent ad revenue for pro wrestling. GFW needs to move away from Pop TV next year if they plan on making money from TV ad revenue. What is a TV executive going to think when they decide whether or not to bring GFW to their network and they see things like this playing out on social media?
“If they were going to, they would have LONG BEFORE I ever said anything again. My recent speaking out was after the last straw for us… …after weeks of staying quiet, as per our verbal agreement that was made once Billy & our lawyers reached out to them on our behalf… …Apparently they couldn’t hold up their end of it, with Jeff, Ed & Dutch continuing to give interviews & lie to anyone would who listen… …attempting to prevent us from making money ? Trying to shut down an entire ROH PPV ? Yeah, we haven’t forgotten about that… …but they want you to, as they gloat of “building bridges” to detract from the fact that they can no longer fund their own programming… …Lets keep it real; Jeff Jarrett burns bridges like he burns through Kurt Angle’s alimony money. They were never going to cooperate… …regardless of how many chances we gave them to do things amicably/the right way. And there were MANY… …Jarrett himself said they were going to “drag it out as long as possible” because “they’ll get tired of spending money”… …Easy for a failing company & someone whose lifestyle is supported by his wife’s ex husband to say. You weak AF, little man… …The ONLY thing we’re tired of are the blatant lies & we will NEVER back down. Even tho we’ve ALREADY WON. #NoCredEd #FuckThatOwl”
