Matt Hardy Confirms New WWE Backstage Role Following Injury

Not saying exactly what projects he was working on, Matt Hardy did confirm with a photo on Twitter that he has been working with WWE as a producer.

Rumors that Hardy was moving toward a producer role in WWE started surfacing after a series of cryptic social media posts by the Broken one, hinting his time in the ring might be coming to an end. When he lost the Raw Tag Team titles and he and Bray Wyatt seemingly worked themselves out of the picture, it became clear that Hardy's injury issues might be leading to changes in his pro wrestling career.

Reports surfaced that both he and Jason Jordan were working backstage for WWE in some capacity and with a photo Hardy released on Twitter, fans got to see the first signs of confirmation he was trying something else besides in-ring wrestling.

Showing that he may be taking a liking to his potential new role, Hardy wrote, "I absolutely LOVE this behind the scenes Summerslam photo. Producing content AND babysitting at the same time."

There is no doubt Hardy would be a huge asset as a producer. Known as one of the most innovative and creative wrestling superstars over the past decade, Hardy literally reinvented his career by changing his character from the "Extreme" tag team competitor to the Woken Warrior, becoming so popular in the process, he and his brother Jeff were brought back to WWE a couple years ago.

It can be argued Hardy hasn't had the type of run he's have liked upon his return to WWE but he's been an active part of the Raw roster since coming back and if a job is waiting for him as a backstage producer, it's clear his creativity may have earned him a secure position in the company for some time.

If Hardy can lend even half of his talent for making new ideas successful to the new stars of WWE, he's got incredible wisdom and experience worth sharing.
