According to PWInsider, Impact Wrestling has decided internally that they will no longer be pursuing the “BROKEN” gimmick moving forward. This will allow Matt Hardy to trademark the use of the characters and use them whichever way he pleases.
Speaking of the BROKEN gimmick, Anthem released the following statement to Sports Illustrated regarding WWE using it:
“We have seen the character development and will be interested to see where they take the concept. Our new talent agreements all incorporate language that allow talent to continue to use their IMPACT persona after they leave the company. We are working with our legal team to amend our existing agreements to extend this to all of our current and former talent.”
