Jeff Hardy is currently injured and will need full reconstructive knee surgery. This is unfortunate timing as he only just became the Smackdown Tag Team Champion along with his brother Matt Hardy.
While Jeff is on the shelf, Matt is still there. So WWE might not want him to be on the sidelines waiting for his brother in the meantime.
Bryan Alvarez said during Wrestling Observer Live that owing to Jeff Hardy being injured and out of action, WWE is considering allowing Matt Hardy to use an old TNA gimmick he used to do.
“Matt Hardy… we’ll see what happens. I’ve heard talk that perhaps Matt will bring back Big Money Matt in the meantime. We shall see what they end up doing.
While WWE fans might not know about Big Money Matt, the character eventually transitioned into Broken Matt Hardy in Impact Wrestling.
We will give updates regarding Matt Hardy’s gimmick if we get to know more.
