Matt Hardy May Be Retiring From Wrestling, Or At Least Splitting From Bray Wyatt


There’s been no official word so far, but Matt Hardy appears to be hinting that he’s saying farewell to the wrestling ring, thanks to some unfortunate medical issues that appear to be the result of a long career of jumping off of things. The first hint came back on August 4th, when Hardy tweeted that his pelvis and spine are fusing together:

Then last night, around the time that he and current tag team partner Bray Wyatt lost a Triple Threat for the Tag Team Championships on RAW, Hardy tweeted a goodbye to Bray.

He had previously referred to that match as part of “a PIVOTAL night for The #DELETERSofWORLDS & our future.” So whether Matt Hardy is gone from the ring or not, it sounds like his time with Bray is coming to an end. In fact, Bray Wyatt himself has recently been soliciting new entrance music, with the promise that “Sometime new is coming.”

Whatever else is happening, The Deleters of Worlds appear to be amicably parting ways, and maybe Bray is getting a full repackage (something we all expected when he got dunked in the Lake of Reincarnation and became Hardy’s partner, only to remain pretty much the same). Whatever Matt Hardy does while Bray moves on, we wish him the best of health and a positive next step in either his WWE career or whatever he does next.
