As noted earlier this week by the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Matt Hardy is taking time off from the ring while he does rehab on his lower back that has begun to fuse into his pelvis.
Dave Meltzer reported that Hardy has been shadowing producers backstage which means that he may eventually transition into a full-time backstage role with the company.
Hardy posted a photo of himself on Twitter and Instagram that shows him talking with Mike Rome before SummerSlam. There’s a chance that we could see Hardy in the ring again but it certainly looks like he is preparing for life after the wrestling ring.
People that know Matt Hardy say that he has a great mind for the business so I am sure that he will do a great job in whatever role he gets backstage at WWE.
