We may have seen the last of Matt Hardy on WWE television after the former multi-time Tag Team champion was written off television last night on Raw, just weeks before his WWE contract expires.
Hardy interrupted Randy Orton’s in-ring promo to defend Edge, his former nemesis both when they were in tag team feuds as well as when they were one-on-one with the Lita real-life-turned-storyline angle. Hardy noted that when Edge retired, they became friends again and wondered what is going on in Orton’s head to attack Edge like that. But Orton ended up hitting Matt Hardy with the RKO and then a con-chair-to as fans showered Orton with boos.
Hardy, who has been rarely used since his brother Jeff suffered an injury last year that required surgery, is on his way out of the company as he will not be signing a new deal. Matt tweeted “Goodbye” and an image from Raw as well as a link to his latest Free the Delete YouTube series.
