Matt Hardy seems about ready to break out his ‘Broken’ character officially in WWE.
Hardy had gone through some legal trouble with his former employers at IMPACT Wrestling over the gimmick.
Sports Illustrated received a statement from Anthem (IMPACT’s parent company) President Ed Nordholm about the current state of the situation. His position seems to have softened significantly since last he was asked about it.
Read his statement below:
“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.”
SI also reports that WWE’s plans for the ‘Broken’ character will be similar to what it was before but that they will be doing their own thing for it.
