It looks like Matt Hardy and Impact Wrestling have reached an agreement on the broken gimmick that was used during his time in Impact Wrestling. Wrestling Sheet reported that Matt Hardy reached an agreement with Impact allowing him to use his Broken Gimmick elsewhere. The Wrestling Sheet article makes note of the fact that the “terms of the agreement” aren’t publicly known yet (and we may never). It was known for a while now that Matt Hardy and WWE were pursuing obtaining the rights to the broken gimmick, but were not able to reach an agreement with Impact. Matt Hardy confirmed this news with a tweet that he sent out earlier today:
I am thrilled to PROCLAIM that we have ACQUIRED new ALLIES on our side of #TheGreatWar. Ed Nordholm & The Owl of Anthem have revealed themselves as MAJESTIC beings who stand on the side of the LIGHT.
The LIGHT always EMERGES, #WOKENWarriors.
Everything is COPASETIC & WONDERFUL! pic.twitter.com/bL6fN4cjnE
