A WWE employee made an offhand remark wishing death on Matt Hardy, and his wife Reby handled it with all the grace and level-headedness she's known for. There will always be drama, rumors, speculation, and debate when it comes to the wrestling industry and the WWE. What there isn't room for are wishing death upon someone else. Regardless of the reason a person might be upset with someone else, that's simply taking things a step too far.
Well, that's not the case for longtime WWE seamstress Julie Youngberg who made the mistake of either joking in bad taste or publicly airing her issues with current WWE Superstar, Matt Hardy. Her willingness to speak her mind could possibly lead to some serious consequences and possible termination. Not to mention, she's found herself on the wrong end of Matt's wife, Reby Sky and her hostile personality. That's a place no one wants to be.
The issues began when a member of the WWE Universe posted a tweet suggesting Matt Hardy "The Broken" version of his character would have made a wise choice for the fifth member of team Miz for TLC. Youngberg took the opportunity to respond and tweeted, "I would love if the fifth man was dead Matt. Did I say that?"

At first, it wasn't clear if Youngberg was joking. But, not long after tweeting her initial response, she followed it up with a series of tweets about Jeff Hardy, Shannon Moore and harassment charges she'd laid on Matt and others in his circle of friends. Basically, it took all of a few minutes to show everyone following the tweets that things were extremely ugly between the Hardys, their friends, and Youngberg.
The backlash was immediate. Members of the WWE Universe quickly started to post comments on Youngberg's tweet letting her know that she'll be lucky to keep her job after posting something like that and once Reby got word of the tweet, she didn't waste time responding.
At first, Reby called out Youngberg for never saying anything to either Matt or Reby in person, followed it up with some nasty names and then went off about how Youngberg seeks attention and has lost her mind.
By the time Reby was done, it was clear Youngberg would hope not to run into Hardy's wife in a dark alley, a WWE hallway, or pretty much any space that Reby was occupying.
This crackhead been running her mouth for YEARS. We forget she exists until she comes out her mouth every few months— Reby Hardy (@RebyHardy) October 18, 2017

The two went back and forth for a while with Reby ensuring she got in the final words. But, is this situation over? It doesn't look so by a longshot and things could get nasty quickly. It may force WWE to step in the middle and make a decision about the futures of either Youngberg or Hardy. Youngberg has been with the WWE over 30 years while Hardy is a star that draws viewers.
