As The Hardy Boyz battle Global Force Wrestling over the use of the “Broken” gimmick, Sports Illustrated got some inside information.

When GFW was trying to re-sign The Hardy Boyz, Jeff was given a lucrative deal while Matt was offered a fraction of what he had been making. Jeff Jarrett also took away a creative spot promised to Matt Hardy. The story continues that the brothers were going to pay $10,000-$15,000 for the trademark. Reby Sky would also pay $1,000 for tweeting about the issue and $5,000 for following violations.

A big problem was Anthem Sports wanting 50% of revenue The Hardy Boyz receive from personal music and art. This was one of the main hurdles both sides couldn’t resolve.
