- Last night, WWE held a live event in Salt Lake City, Utah and posted a video of Matt Hardy with the description: "#WWESaltLakeCity were witness to a Matt Hardy who appears to be more #WOKEN than ever...?" The video showed Hardy yelling and leading a "Delete" chant in the ring, then doing his trademark "Yes" in the locker room.
As noted, regarding the legal matters between Hardy and Anthem Sports & Entertainment over the ownership of the "Broken" intellectual property, Sports Illustrated reported that there have been no new negotiations between Hardy and Anthem's Ed Nordholm, and there have been no talks of revenue sharing over profits made off merchandise. SI reached out to Anthem for an update and Nordholm issued the following statement:
"We have seen the character development and will be interested to see where they take the concept. Our new talent agreements all incorporate language that allow talent to continue to use their IMPACT persona after they leave the company. We are working with our legal team to amend our existing agreements to extend this to all of our current and former talent."
