Back in September of last year, Matt Hardy sure made it seem like he was retiring from professional wrestling after a house show in Texas. This came just over a month after he revealed some really awful sounding injury issues that future reports would say greatly contributed to his going away for a while.
Just last month, he clarified that he is not retired while saying he would be back sooner rather than later. To that end:
No, I am not retired & not going to be retiring anytime soon. I’ve worked my ass off to rehabilitate & have physically been greenlit. My body is in the best shape it’s been in in years & I’m the lightest I’ve been in 20 years. https://t.co/XE1GzBP58A

Perhaps a surprise entrant in the men’s Royal Rumble match a week from today?
The timing of this couldn’t be better, both because we’re just getting into WrestleMania season and because Bray Wyatt is healthy and simply in need of a storyline to bring him back to television.
