Matt Hardy Now A Free Agent Following Expiration Of His AEW Contract

One long-time AEW star has officially entered the free agency market.

Fightful Select’s Sean Ross Sapp reported that Matt Hardy is a free agent. Hardy portrayed the Broken gimmick when he first joined AEW in March 2020. He was used as a tag team star in the promotion, teaming up with his brother after Jeff Hardy joined All Elite Wrestling.

This comes after Hardy had been discussing his options for the future with his AEW contract, which expired in March. According to the report, he is currently no longer with AEW.

The word around the promotion was that AEW extended the deal for a few weeks until WrestleMania, but no reason was provided. It should be noted that the two sides have spoken, and Hardy has decided to let his contract lapse.

It’s unclear whether WWE or another promotion would be interested in signing him as a wrestler. In any case, he is in excellent physical condition.
