Reason Why Matt Hardy Did Not Use 'Broken' Gimmick On 15th Anniversary PPV

The situation between Impact Wrestling and the Hardys continue to boil. Based on fiery tweets from Reby Hardy, the relationship is quite bitter, and becoming more and more unsalvageable.

On the Ring of Honor 15th Anniversary pay-per-view, The Hardys defeated the Young Bucks and Roppongi Vice to not only maintain the ROH World Tag Team Championships, but also win the "Superkick Party" Tag Team Championships.


However, there are legal issues stemming from Matt's "broken" gimmick being displayed, which caused question of it not being expressed much on the pay-per-view. The reason behind this, according to PWInsider, is due to Anthem issuing a cease and desist to the pay-per-view providers for Matt Hardy not to act out this gimmick.

This is not believed to be a command of Jeff Jarrett, but simply Anthem, as they believe that the "broken" gimmick is their intellectual property.
