Ever since the publicity began in the media surrounding Matt Hardy's issues, which led to him being sent him from various events by World Wrestling Entertainment, he has had an axe to grind with the promotion.
From complimenting the competition in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling—where his brother Jeff Hardy is their champion—to posting random videos with a certain agenda against not only WWE, but also the Internet wrestling community, Hardy has been making headlines.
It appears as if Hardy is not yet done with his attempt to criticize "The Worldwide Leader In Sports Entertainment," as he has called out the promotion yet against last night following the promotion’s special three-hour edition of WWE Monday Night RAW.
“For the 1st time in a while, I watched Raw straight-thru on DVR after getting home tonight,” Matt Hardy wrote on his official Twitter account yesterday evening. “That was a long 3 hours. Business needs change.”
He wasn’t finished either. He went out to say that professional wrestling appears to be a dying industry and feels something needs to change to stir sports entertainment into a whole new direction.
“I’m really happy for my friends & the guys that are getting to perform & make a living in the biz, but I feel the biz is slowly fading,” the former WWE United States Champion added. “There desperately needs to be a new era ushered in that changes the entire landscape and mindset of professional wrestling…And soon.”
It isn’t shocking to see Hardy come out and criticize his former employer, who he blames for a poor lack of utilization of himself as a performer during his tenure with the promotion. However, it is a little revealing to show that he feels the business itself is slowly beginning to be phased out.
It is safe to assume however that Matt will be making his way back to the business relatively shortly following his 90-day no compete clause is up, and it’s not too much of a stretch that we will see him competing in TNA Wrestling.
