WWE superstar Matt Hardy has spent the last several weeks teasing retirement on social media, and he left fans curious after posting yet another cryptic message on his Twitter page.
This is terribly difficult.— MATTHEW MOORE HARDY (@MATTHARDYBRAND) September 13, 2018
Hardy would then follow it up with a couple of photos, one at the airport and another with him on the plane. It's really anybody's guess at this point what the Hardy tweets means. It's just impossible to read the message he'st trying to send.
The future Hall of Famer recently tweeted a photo that confirmed rumors of him working backstage as a producer. But because of his age (44 on Sept. 23), and injury history (dealing with lower back and pelvis injuries), it's easy to believe that Hardy is seriously considering retirement.
It should be noted that Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported last month that Hardy isn't in "terrible pain," and that he's playing things "by ear," at the moment. Meltzer also said that Hardy's cryptic tweets are simply a reminder to fans that he won't be wrestling forever.
Matt and Jeff Hardy have performed dangerous wrestling styles for two decades, and they've both suffered multiple serious injuries throughout their careers. Matt is married with two young children, and he's a virtual lock to be in the Hall of Fame at this point. As such, there's good reason for him to stop jeopardizing his long-term health and hang up the boots soon.
Hardy's return to the WWE has been a massive success, as he captured the Raw Tag Team Championships with both Jeff and Bray Wyatt. The 'Woken' character only added more to Hardy's incredible legacy in the WWE.
We continue to wait and see if and when Hardy will make a decision on his wrestling future. For now, he's keeping us guessing on what his tweets really mean.
