As previously reported, Ed Nordholm mentioned during an interview with Sports Illustrated that he will not continue negotiations with The Hardy Boyz over the “BROKEN” gimmick and he doesn’t plan to open a new dialogue with them.
“I’ve stopped thinking about this. We have a show to put on, and a company and a brand. We’ve got things on our plate that are more important than sorting out the “Broken Brilliance.” I made a genuine effort to resolve something to benefit the Hardys as a goodwill gesture to Matt. It didn’t reach a conclusion and we’re moving on. We’re not going back to it, I’m not interested in opening a new dialogue, I’m not interested in opening another conversation about it. We made our best effort, it didn’t happen, and I’m not going to negotiate all over again.”
According to PWInsider, all signs are pointing that The Hardy Boyz are preparing for a lawsuit against Anthem Sports over the ownership of the gimmick. We will keep you posted if we receive any more details.
