There is a possibility Matt Hardy will become a free agent in February next year. He is currently working for WWE and has been competing in more matches recently. However, his booking leaves much to be desired.
On Busted Open Radio, WWE Hall Of Famer Bully Ray criticized WWE’s treatment of Matt Hardy. He implied that WWE might have stopped pushing Matt Hardy owing to him being guilty by association with his brother Jeff’s issues.
“It almost seems like they [WWE] take out their frustrations on Matt for whatever Jeff [Hardy] may have done wrong. Any mistake that Jeff Hardy has made anybody could make it one time or another. And that’s why people gang up on people like that Jeff for a mistake they made whatever mistake it is. Drunken driving or that. This stuff happens. It could happen to you, it could happen to a family member, it could happen to anybody and hopefully he learned from the mistakes. These guys are my brothers.”
“It just always winds up on the back burner, and he keeps reinventing himself and that is the kick in the balls. He takes it on the chin he reinvents himself V1, Big Money Matt, ‘Broken,’ it’s mad [that he] gets this all this stuff over. I think [he] gets put back on the back burner, it’s ridiculous.”
Matt Hardy has limitless creative potential, but WWE simply is not capitalizing on that right now. Perhaps the company will eventually, but it is uncertain.
