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.
