WWE superstar ‘Woken’ Matt Hardy has potentially called it time on his wrestling career.
The company shared an exclusive video of Matt on its website, as WWE said that the former Tag Team Champion has revealed that it “was time for him to go home.”
Check it out:
“Incredibly reflective, Hardy spoke about his entire journey, including recent peaks and what his time with the WWE universe has meant to him,” WWE said.
“However, the 2018 Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal winner then announced that the match he had just had in Corpus Christi on Saturday night was, more than likely, the last time we would ever see ‘Woken’ Matt Hardy in a WWE ring.”
It’s worth noting that WWE has said that it might be the last time that we will see the former TNA star in the ring.

SPORTbible reported back in March that Hardy would love the opportunity to use his ‘Broken’ brilliance in some sort of backstage role.
“I have no idea when the expiration on my body is,” he said at the time.
“I’ve been doing this for 26 years, so I certainly have a lot more going on in the rear view mirror than going ahead.
“But I love the art of professional wrestling/sports entertainment and I would like to contribute to the other side of things. Actually, I think I might be even more beneficial on that side when it’s all said and done.”

Hardy rose to fame as one-half of The Hardy Boyz alongside his brother, Jeff, who is an active member of the roster for SmackDown.
Matt, who turns 44 later this month, helped pioneer the Tables, Ladders and Chairs match in WWE and captured several titles over his time with the company, including the Tag Team Championship and the United States Championship.
He was also fondly remembered for his work in Ring of Honor and Total Nonstop Action Wrestling.
Best of luck with the future, Matt!
