According to Wrestling Observer Radio, WWE is planning on using the “Broken” gimmick that revitalized the Hardy Boyz’ careers in 2016 and helped them become the talk of the wrestling world. Though TNA owners Anthem are currently in possession of the rights to the gimmick (which led to some very bad blood between the Hardys and Anthem following the tag team’s departure from TNA), it is expected that WWE will strike a deal with the company, either in the form of a one-time payment or a continuous fee for usage of the intellectual property.

Though the Hardys have played relatively nondescript babyfaces since returning to WWE at WrestleMania 33 and winning the Raw Tag Team Championships, Matt – the creator of all things “Broken” – has occasionally slipped into some of the speech patterns associated with the gimmick, and he still retains “Broken” Matt’s signature white streak of hair.

Meanwhile, WWE’s attempts to get the rights to the gimmick aren’t simply based in fan service. Company higher-ups believe that the Hardys’ current nostalgia-heavy run has a limited shelf life, while the “Broken” gimmick has strong merchandising potential.
