Matt Hardy has re-signed with TNA Wrestling, and will join his brother Jeff on the company roster.
Hardy will return alongside his brother, currently performing under the ring-name of his ‘alter-ego’ Willow, in a World Tag Team Title match against the Wolves next month.
The Hardy Boyz are one of the most successful tag teams in the history of professional wrestling, having won eleven titles together, including six World Tag Team Championships with WWE. They were voted the PWI Tag Team of the Year in 2000, and they will now be looking to bring that experience to a rapidly-improving TNA tag team division.
An official TNA Statement read: “Matt and Jeff Hardy make up one of the most recognizable tag teams of all-time. Individually, they have climbed to the top of professional wrestling. Now, at the upcoming IMPACT tapings in New York City, the brothers will reunite!
“ImpactWrestling.com has learned that TNA has come to terms with Matt Hardy to appear at IMPACT in New York City, which marks the first time that Matt has been inside a TNA ring in three years – this was also the last time a match featuring the Hardy’s was nationally televised.
Decorated tag team
“Together, Matt and Jeff Hardy are one of the most decorated tag teams of all time and we are excited to see what the duo has planned for NYC!”
The Hardy Boyz potential feud with The Wolves could be an extremely exciting proposition for TNA fans, with the duo of Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards having proved incredibly popular since their debut earlier this year. The Wolves have been feuding with the Bro Mans for several months, but are now ready for a new challenge.
Hardy originally signed for TNA in 2011, making his debut at the Genesis pay-per-view event as part of the heel stable, Immortal. He was the surprise opponent for Rob Van Dam, and defeated him to prevent Van Dam from receiving a match for the TNA World Title held at the time by Jeff.
However, Hardy failed to intervene in the night’s main event, causing Jeff to lose the World Title to Mr. Anderson. In April, Matt received his own shot at the TNA World Title, but was defeated by Sting.
In June, Hardy announced that he was taking a few weeks off from TNA. The following day, it was reported that the promotion had actually suspended him. Two months later, on the 20th August, he was released following a DUI arrest that occurred earlier that same day.
