Former WWE Raw Tag Team Champion Matt Hardy recently did an interview with Riju Dasgupta of Sportskeeda to talk about various topics including his future in pro wrestling, which has been a hot topic as of late.

A few months ago, it was reported that Hardy would be taking an extended break to deal with nagging injuries and he has been “shadowing” WWE producers behind the scenes and is transitioning to a backstage role with the company. Hardy made it known that retirement is not on the horizon for him. 

“No, it’s not. I took time off to heal some nagging injuries and I’ll be back sooner rather than later. So, I’ve been doing this twenty-six years. I was just a little beat up. I was given a little time off. From when I’ve been back, for over a year and half, I was full time. I did everything. Hardy added that he thinks fans will see an S evolution of Bray Wyatt and himself.

The older Hardy brother also about the reaction to his Woken/Broken universe from WWE officials which is where he noted that they were big fans of the character due to it being something very different and nothing that had been done on that level.

“[Chris] Jericho was the one who facilitated all of that. He had a link to watch the Final Deletion before it came out. They were in Japan actually. The whole WWE locker room watched it. Upon coming back and finally getting to the point where I could finally become ‘Woken’ Matt Hardy, The Ultimate Deletion, considering I got to do that in the main event slot on RAW was such an honour. Because it wasn’t Vince’s creation or WWE’s creation, it’s hard for them to fully get behind something like that.”
