Last week, the Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported Matt Hardy will be taking extended time off soon to deal with several nagging injuries. His health will be re-evaluated later this year. At this time, there is no reason to assume Matt’s career is over. However, the report indicated that Matt Hardy‘s in-ring future is in question.
With a long road ahead, the Woken one has been gearing up for the next chapter of his career. Hardy has been “shadowing” WWE producers, which could result in him transitioning to a backstage role full-time. Matt Hardy is a 25-year veteran and is considered to have a very high wrestling IQ. He has a wealth of knowledge to contribute to WWE storylines and could have a long future ahead with the company.
On Sunday afternoon, he tweeted that it was strange to be at SummerSlam in a ‘different capacity.’ Matt later tweeted this photo of himself with WWE broadcaster Mike Rome working together backstage at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.
