There has been a rumor that's been making the rounds online claiming that an agreement had been reached between WWE and Anthem/Impact Wrestling over the usage of the Hardys “Broken” gimmick. Someone brought it up to Reby Hardy and she quickly shot the rumor down.
NO. Absolutely none. The fact that this is even a rumor is such a joke 🙄 https://t.co/Lmco2SX7Mg— Reby Hardy (@RebyHardy) April 28, 2017
The Wrestling Observer newsletter reported that there were talks ongoing regarding getting the rights to the gimmick but it was never reported by Dave Meltzer that an agreement was reached at all. Matt Hardy, in the meantime, has been teasing fans his prior gimmicks on Twitter and teased he could be "Broken" again. Speculation going around is that this could result in Hardy using his "Broken" gimmick.
