Numerous wrestling fans are wondering if Matt Hardy is going to stay with WWE or move somewhere else once his contract expires next month. As he completes the supposed final days of his deal, he has been facing off with Randy Orton and has had some vicious interactions with him in the last couple of weeks. After this week’s Monday Night Raw, Hardy has since taken to social media, revealing the outcome of the beatings he has received.
When Edge returned to the ring at the Royal Rumble, he almost immediately jumped into a feud with Orton, his former Rated-RKO tag team partner. On the Raw after the pay-per-view, Orton delivered a violent Conchairto to Edge, taking him off television for the last few weeks.
Since Edge’s absence, Hardy has stepped in to continue the feud with Orton, but it has resulted in nothing but bad times for him. Last week, Orton delivered a Conchairto to Hardy, putting the former multi-time tag team champion into a neck brace. However, the worst was yet to come.
This week on Raw, Orton delivered an even more brutal assault, one which may have written Hardy off of WWE television for good. Still continuing to play up the beating from “The Viper,” the former “Woken” superstar took to his Twitter account to give people an update on his status, as he shared photos of himself in a wheelchair.
In true “Broken Matt Hardy” fashion, he spoke of needing to be in a “Chair of Wheels” due to Orton’s actions.

As fans can see by the old look of the wheelchair, it is simply Hardy playing up the angle and storyline of his beatdown on Raw. He’s thrilled to be at home on the “Hardy Compound,” but what could his future in professional wrestling hold?
Hardy’s contract is expected to expire at the beginning of March, and there has been a lot of speculation that he could head to All Elite Wrestling. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, one of his recent tweets even dropped a hidden hint at him joining AEW in the near future.
Younger brother Jeff Hardy’s contract was also supposed to expire at the beginning of March, but that isn’t likely to be the case. Because he missed significant in-ring time due to injuries and legal issues, WWE reportedly added a few more months to his deal.
Matt Hardy hasn’t been treated too well by WWE in the eyes of the fans over the last couple of months. They want to see him in a better position and would love for him to stay with the company, but it may not end up being that way. Still, his recent social media activity suggests that he’s been a true professional by playing up the beatdown he received from Orton.
