Matt Hardy reportedly close to owning the Broken Gimmick

Broken Matt Hardy GFW

It appears that after months of verbal and legal battle against the new Impact owners Anthem Sports, Matt Hardy is finally close to owning the ‘Broken’ gimmick,

According to reports from Pwinsider, his application for the ownership of the gimmick has reached the publication step. Now Anthem has 30 days to file an opposition.

And if the company doesn’t do so by 15th December, Matt will own the character from December 19th and he’ll be free to use it on WWE TV or anywhere else he wants.

Though it’s worth mentioning here that so far we don’t know WWE’s stand on the whole situation and it’s doubtful if the company would let Hardy use a gimmick on their programming, which he will be free to use elsewhere once his contract expires.

Matt Hardy is currently kept off WWE TV due to the injury of his brother Jeff and the duo are not expected to make their return anytime this year.

    Even though i think the Broken gimmick is a bit goofy (and a success for all the wrong reasons) i dont see why Vince would’nt allow it, since he has allowed outside gimmicks in WWE, namely the nWo and “Crow” Sting.

    “it’s doubtful if the company would let Hardy use a gimmick on their
    programming, which he will be free to use elsewhere once his contract
    expires.”

    So what about he Matt Hardy and Hardy Boyz gimmick that they could use elsewhere?
    Or the Cactus Jack gimmick that Mick Foley could use elsewhere?
    Or the MVP gimmick that has been used elsewhere?
    Or any other bloody gimmick that has been used elsewhere?

    As odd as it sounds, Vince doesn’t watch other wrestling shows and STILL might not heard of the broken gimmick and just has no clue what Matt is doing out there.

    It would be weird to disallow the broken gimmick after he’s teased it this much. If Vince thought it was weird or dopey, you’d think he’d have said something by now.
