– Part of The Hardys’ new deal with WWE is that they can fulfil their independent bookings that they have left on their calendars. That’s exactly what they won’t be working WWE Live Events this weekend, as Matt and Jeff will be working a couple of House Of Hardcore events.
Matt is scheduled to face Tommy Dreamer at tomorrow’s (Fri. April 21, 2017) HOH from Metuchen, NJ, while The Hardys will team up against Dreamer and Bully Ray for HOH in Philadelphia, PA the next night. For more information on those appearances click here.

Thanks for all the well-wishes, kind words and prayers for my hip surgery. Spirits are high after a visit from Buddy the Elf in recovery! 🎄 pic.twitter.com/xHeiUZs5Th
