Backstage News On The Contracts Of Matt And Jeff Hardy

WWE fans had been wondering for a while about the futures of Matt and Jeff Hardy, given their recent injury histories and the fact that both of their contracts were expiring soon.

Well, there's good news for fans of the Hardy Boyz. According to Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com, it's been said that there's a clause that extends their respective deals for another year. Per Johnson, their deals would be running up next month if WWE chose not to invoke that clause.

The Hardy Boyz returned to WWE at WrestleMania 33 two years ago, but both have been dealing with serious injuries since coming back. Matt had been sidelined since last summer as he fought through a nagging pelvis injury. He spent months teasing retirement on social media, posting memories and constantly thanking the fans for their support.

As for Jeff, he suffered a shoulder injury in Sept. 2017 and wouldn't return until after WrestleMania 34. He has since been able to stay healthy and remains one of the top superstars on the SmackDown Live brand.

But despite their injuries - along with Matt's constant hinting at retirement - it turns out The Hardy Boyz are far from done in WWE. The duo reunited on this week's episode of SmackDown Live and defeated The Bar in a tag team match. It was Matt's first match since the Aug. 18 episode of Raw.

Matt is now 44 years of age, while Jeff is 41. The two brothers continue to fight through the pain and put their bodies on the line for the sake of our entertainment. Neither of them are ready to hang up the wrestling boots yet, and it just goes to show how devoted they are to the wrestling business. Without a doubt, they'll be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame some day.

What This Means

So with that, WWE fans don't have to worry about Matt and Jeff leaving just yet. It's quite possible they don't end up signing new contracts next year, but that remains to be seen. For now, fans have at least one more year of this legendary duo in WWE.
