Matt Hardy recently posted a new video to his YouTube Channel (view above) reintroducing the “Big Money Matt” character from his time in TNA Wrestling.
Matt made a surprise return to the ring on the February 26 episode of Smackdown Live as he and his brother Jeff reunited for the first time since 2017 in a tag team match against The Bar. The Hardyz were victorious after Jeff landed the Swanton Bomb on Sheamus to get the win.
This was Matt’s first match in the ring since August of 2018. Last September we reported that following a WWE live event in Corpus Christi, Texas Hardy uploaded a video on his Twitter hinting at possible retirement from in-ring action. A month prior, Hardy had revealed he was battling issues with his lower back and pelvis fusing together from what was believed to be caused by leg drops off the top rope during his career.
This past January Hardy responded to a question from a fan on his Twitter stating he was wasn’t retiring anytime soon, and that he had been “Greenlit” for a physical return.
