Following a storied career spanning multiple wrestling promotions, Matt Hardy finds himself as a free agent following the expiration of his contract with All Elite Wrestling. While he has returned to TNA, Hardy has confirmed he is still in talks with AEW.

Reports had indicated that Matt Hardy’s contract was set to expire in March of this year, fact recently confirmed by Hardy himself. As previously reported, Matt Hardy’s contract with AEW expired recently.

Matt Hardy made his return to TNA on Saturday night at Rebellion and immediately took out TNA World Champion Moose. While speaking on the Busted Open Radio show, Matt Hardy confirmed he is still in talks with AEW after his free agency.

“I will start and I will preface it by saying I love AEW. I love working with Tony Khan. He’s a great guy. My contract ended up expiring. We hadn’t reached a deal yet and we’re still in the midst of talking. I have literally in the last week, I have talked to every promoter from every promotion that there is. Last night was me showing that pro wrestling can still be unpredictable. This was done in a couple days notice. We kind of started talking about this on Wednesday. This is when it kind of materialized over a couple of days doing some shots for TNA and a little story arc. Pro Wrestling is at its best when it’s unpredictable. I didn’t tell anyone. My brother texted me this morning. It was late last night. He goes to bed super early. He’s like, ‘Oh my God. That was great last night. How’d it feel to be out there? That was killer’. If you want to keep a secret, just keep a secret. Just go about your business and do your thing.”


Matt Hardy has already confirmed future appearances on TNA television already. Nonetheless, it remains to be seen how long Hardy will be sticking around in TNA, as WWE might be his endgoal eventually.

Do you think Broken Matt Hardy will be successful in capturing the TNA World Championship? Will he also return to AEW eventually? Sound off in the comments!
