Matt Hardy decided to celebrate regaining the TNA World Championship in the most bizarre way, apparently by making himself a target to all other World Champions in Wrestling.
The former WWE Superstar posted the following Tweet:
"1) I am the ONLY World Champion that matters in the professional wrestling industry. All other recognized champions are inferior to me."

He then went on to list 10 things on his social media profile about changes and the things that matter to him.
WILL THE OTHER PROMOTIONS REACT?
Hardy initially put the tweet up as a celebration after winning back the championship but after fans targeted him he tried to prove that he meant it by tagging Wrestling's other three main world champions.
WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns, Ring of Honor World Champion Jay Lethal and IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada were all tagged into his later tweet where he stated "For all you mark-ass Twitter stooges, I don't stutter. This better?"
This tweet has since been circulating around Social Media with many hoping that it was a faked tweet and that Matt hadn't stooped low enough to be trying to cause a Twitter rift for himself in order to gain attention now that he was once again TNA's World Champion.
MATT HARDY'S FUTURE?
Hardy's current Twitter page is full of rants from the current world champion about the way that he is being treated by TNA and even goes as far as to compare his and TNA's Twitter pages and state that he has a bigger brand based on his follower count.
He also talked about the man he defeated to win the world title, Ethan Carter. He defeated him on TNA Impact in a last man standing match and showed that he has now blocked him on Twitter and said that he is now "Done with him on all platforms."
It is currently unknown what effect these outbursts will have on Matt's TNA Career and if it will have any impact on his World Championship reign, but one thing is for certain, ROH, NJPW and WWE won't accept a comment of that magnitude and not react. Hopefully, there will be some response from one of the promotions in the next few days.
