Matt Hardy not done with WWE just yet Submitted by Aaron Rift on 02/14/2020 at 01:23 PM
WWE announced the following:
This past Monday on Raw, Randy Orton subjected Matt Hardy to the same brutal Con-Chair-To that sent Edge out of Raw on a stretcher. Now, Hardy is coming for payback.
In the wake of Ortonís heinous attack, the former Raw Tag Team Champion is now slated to battle The Apex Predator in a No Holds Barred Match, placing Orton directly on a collision course with his most recent victim ó to say nothing of a Superstar who refuses to take the abuse lying down. After all, Hardy is as much a trailblazer as Edge, and his history is almost completely entwined with that of The Rated-R Superstar. Then again, Randy Orton seems to take a particular delight in destroying legends these days. Heíll be more than happy to do it again.
Tune in to Raw this Monday, live at 8/7 C on USA Network.
It was initially believed that the angle from this past Monday's RAW was done to write Hardy out of storylines due to his contract expiring on March 1st but that isn't the case. Ryan Satin of ProWrestlingSheet.com noted the following:
"Matt passed on WWE's latest contract offer last week, which is why they did the con-chair-to angle to write him off TV. Since it was so well-received though, they decided to extend this part of story another week."
