Matt Hardy Announces Retirement, Says “It’s Time To Go Home”

Has Matt Hardy decided to retire from wrestling? It certainly sounds like it.

While there has been no official word from the WWE, reports have surfaced of the Woken One himself stating that “it’s time to go home”.

After a live event held in Corpus Christi, Texas on Saturday (September 15), Hardy released a video where he seemed to indeed state that he would no longer be active in the wrestling business.

Hardy was last seen on WWE television on July 30, when he and his tag team partner Bray Wyatt successfully competed against the Revival. It was then reported that Hardy was taking time off from in ring competition to deal with a health issue that was causing his spine and pelvis to fuse together.

While it was reported that he was still present backstage and was working transitioning into a producer role, the video seems to indicate that Hardy might be stepping away from working in wrestling for good.

Shortly after tweeting his “retirement” video, Hardy released a second tweet, this time regarding his tag team partner Bray Wyatt. Hardy praised Wyatt, calling him extremely talented and asking people to support Wyatt moving forward.
