PWInsider.com is reporting that Matt Hardy is now officially listed as the trademark owner for the terms Broken Matt, Brother Nero, Broken Brilliance and Vanguard 1.
According to the report, Impact Wrestling President Ed Nordholm signed an agreement on January 8 handing over all ownership rights to Hardy. Two days later, Hardy shared a smiling photo with Nordholm on Twitter.
As of January 31, all four trademarks now belong to Matt Hardy going forward and he is now within legal rights to use them as he sees fit.
Hardy has been using the term “Woken” in WWE since early December.
