Update: The Hardys will not re-sign with TNA

Update #1: PWInsider is reporting that The Hardys will not re-sign with TNA. The Hardys and TNA reportedly agreed to new deals back in December, however, the deals were delivered late likely due to management changes within TNA. The Hardys did not want to leave TNA due to the travel schedule and having creative control, but were not happy with the language in the new deal and the fact that the contracts were delivered late.



The report also suggests a rumor going around that talents are allowed to take outside bookings, however, TNA would take 10% of their earnings. Matt Hardy’s ‘Broken’ character was also in jeopardy of being changed by the new creative and management teams. Matt was once considered to be given a spot on the creative team but Jeff Jarret was brought back instead and implemented his own booking team with Dutch Mantel and Scott D’Amore.

The Hardys currently reign as the TNA Tag Team champs and have been working a storyline in which they go to other indie promotions and win their Tag Titles. Matt and Jeff have been offered to work the upcoming TV tapings this Thursday through Sunday in order to drop their titles, but no deal has been made yet.

Original post: According to a report from F4WOnline, The Hardys’ TNA contracts are set to expire this week and they will become free agents on Wednesday. On a recent episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that WWE is “certainly in the ballgame, if not likely” so sign the Hardy brothers.

The Hardys have informed indie promoters that they will not be taking any bookings after May as they may not be able to fulfill those commitments. They have, however, noted that those plans could change soon.

Meltzer also stated that the current changes in TNA such as Jeff Jarret’s return to the company along with some more backstage issues make it more likely that they will depart. It is not a done deal quite yet, however, as negotiations between TNA and The Hardys are still ongoing.

The Hardys’ online store will also be closing down after five years of operation, after Reby Hardy stated that she can no longer run it along with being a mother expecting another child:
