It’s unclear why exactly, but TNA (otherwise known as Impact Wrestling) has not renewed the contracts of superstars Jeff Hardy and Matt Hardy.
According to a recent edition of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE wants to bring back Jeff and Matt Hardy but have not made any sort of offer yet. According to an earlier report from PWInsider.com (h/t WrestleZone), “Matt Hardy and Jeff Hardy have yet to sign new deals with TNA.
The belief is that the Hardy’s are indeed free agents.
WWE has to tread carefully about when and how they approach the Hardy’s about a return, but sources say WWE is planning to put on a “full court press” for both superstars to return to the company “when they are legally able to negotiate”.
Sources stressed that WWE is only going to act when/if they legally can do so but the idea of a Hardy return to WWE is “of high interest” and the two are at the top of their free agent wish list.
While scheduling may be a hurdle for the Hardy’s in a WWE return it’s hard to imagine all parties not figuring out a way to get past it.

Vince McMahon Sells $22 Million Worth of WWE Stock
WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon continues to sell off shares of WWE as he prepares for the re-launch of his football league, the XFL, in 2020.
According to recent SEC filings, McMahon recently sold 300,000 shares of WWE, valued at $74 a share, for an estimated $22 million, leaving McMahon with a hefty 3 million shares, for an estimated total well of $2 billion.
McMahon is clearly creating more financial cushion for his venture Alpha Entertainment, which owns the XFL, who recently announced the initial cities that will house XFL franchises that include Washington, Los Angeles, Dallas, Houston, Seattle, New York, St. Louis, and Tampa Bay.
As WWE has always innovative with their content distribution, highlighted by the success of the WWE Network platform, it will be interesting to see how the XFL will be setup.
With the popularity of Twitch streams and the less popular Mixer streams introducing more forms of entertainment to the potential of online streaming, it will be interesting to see how the XFL will choose to broadcast, and on how many platforms once it launches.
XFL will have it’s fair share of competition, but McMahon seems to be financially arming the league for a more successful run than it had back in the early 2000s.
