The Exalted O.. i mean Matt Hardy is officially a free agent. His WWE contract expired on March 1st. 2020.

During a a episode of “Thoughts from the Throne” from his YouTube channel Matt Hardy announced he is officially a free agent.

‪ “As of this current time I have let my current contract with WWE expire. I am going to become a free agent and that’s not saying I will not be returning to WWE, I did want to leave WWE, I love WWE. WWE is my home, WWE has treated me great as a employee for the last three years. They’ve been great to my family, they’ve been great to my kids, I have nothing but great things to say about WWE and the great people who work there and going back 20 plus years ago, if it wasn’t for Vince McMahon, I would not have been able to attain the life, the quality of life I currently have so I would always be grateful for that and I would always be appreciative of that. I also have to say Triple H, Stephanie they were always great to me. Michael Hayes is a good friend of mine, I’m going to miss him if I’m not there. Everyone in WWE has been really really good, and is very much like family so many talents there that I’m close friends with.. it’s just time for me to take a break and become a free agent. I didn’t wanna leave WWE because it is my home, the reason I needed to leave WWE is because when it comes to my creative stance and my creative outlook on myself and my career and how I want it to go for these last 3 or 4 years that I have to spend as an active in-ring performer, I just think myself and WWE are on different pages. It’s very important to me because I love this business. Man if you know me, you know how crazy passionate I am about this and how much I love it and the last 3 or 4 years I have as a in-ring competitor is really important to me to cement my legacy. I want to enter a creative renaissance. I am not obviously 25 to 30 years old, I am 45 years old and I have to be utilized in a certain way. But I still know in my heart I have so much to offer this business, I have so much entertainment left inside this vessel and I have so much I want to give to each and every one of you. I want to enter a creative renaissance and I want to have nonstop input on my creative process and that’s where I think WWE and I are in different pages. That is the reason I am going to take a break and step away from WWE. That doesn’t mean I am not going to return to WWE, i am positive at some point I would definitely be home back with WWE once again. I mean, I think there’s is definitely a WWE Hall Of Fame Ring waiting on myself and {Jeff Hardy} my brother but I think right now I need to weigh all my options, I need to see all that’s out there and I need see what’s the perfect environment for Matt Hardy to maximize these next few years in my career.

Speculation has been for Matt Hardy to sign with All Elite Wrestling and be revealed as the leader of the Dark Order which is a mystery character named the “Exalted One”.
