Matt Hardy gives a big update on his in-ring return!
It’s been a number of months now since WWE Superstar Matt Hardy was forced to step away from the ring after years of abuse on his body was beginning to show its affects with his pelvis beginning to fuse with his spine (read about that here).
Last month, Matt revealed in an interview that everything with his rehabilitation has gone “better than expected”, stating that he didn’t have an exact timetable for when he would be back in the ring, but it would happen “sooner than later” (read all of Matt’s comments here). Today, the WWE legend revealed that he has finally been “greenlit”:
No, I am not retired & not going to be retiring anytime soon. I’ve worked my ass off to rehabilitate & have physically been greenlit. My body is in the best shape it’s been in in years & I’m the lightest I’ve been in 20 years. https://t.co/XE1GzBP58A

At this time there’s still no word on when exactly we could see Hardy back in a WWE ring, but this is certainly exciting news for fans who thought his career was over.
EA’s Take: Sounds like everything went well and although there are going to be some fans who think he should just stay out of the squared circle, at the end of the day it’s his life. If Matt wants to keep going and feels he can still contribute without damaging himself further, I’m all for it. Random guess here, but I wouldn’t be shocked to see him enter the Royal Rumble Match as a surprise entrant.
