Over the summer, there's been so much speculation surrounding the wrestling future of Matt Hardy.

Back in July, he and Bray Wyatt dropped the RAW Tag Team Championships to The B-Team, and that appeared to be the beginning of the end for the 'Woken' one. 

TRANSITIONING BACKSTAGE

Last month, he revealed the extent of a very serious injury that's seen his lower back and pelvis fusing together - and will now undergo intense rehab sessions for that, and other issues. 

Due to the injuries that Hardy is suffering from, he hasn't been wrestling too much on WWE TV - and even worked in a backstage role at SummerSlam, rather than performing. 

Up until this weekend, he did continue to wrestle at house shows, which led many people to speculate that he wasn't actually done.

But now the man himself has spoken - and Matt has confirmed his WWE retirement. 

TIME TO GO HOME

On Saturday night, Hardy fulfilled his last advertised commitment at an event in Corpus Christi and following the show, he addressed the WWE Universe on camera.

He revealed that after 26 years, it's time for him to 'go home' and be a husband and father.

Matt Hardy has officially announced his WWE retirement

In an emotional message, without any gimmick or accent, he said that Saturday's event was 'most likely' the final time we’ll ever see Woken Matt Hardy in a WWE ring. 

Check out the full video below. 

Damn. Realistically, this is news that most fans were expecting, but it's still hard to hear, especially as it's coming directly from Hardy himself. 

THE FUTURE

As well as posting that video on his Twitter, Matt also appeared to bid a fond farewell to his partner Wyatt. 

Although it's unclear what his own future holds, Hardy clearly wants WWE fans to support Bray going forward. 

Although it seems that we have seen the last of him in the ring, hopefully, we'll see Hardy involved in WWE in a different capacity in future.
