Reby Hardy was recently a guest on Busted Open Radio to talk about her husband, Matt Hardy’s, current run with WWE. Here are some of the highlights:
When Matt Hardy’s WWE contract is up: “Matt is good. Matt is right now going through a bit of a transitional period,” Hardy said. “He’s not really sure what he’s going to be doing. His contract is up in March, which I’m not sure many people are aware of. But there’s sort of a decision to be made at this point as to whether or not he should continue his in-ring career or if he should pursue something different, which he would totally be up for and would be excited to do, I feel like.
“So, he’s kind of giving it a go right now backstage. He’s at SummerSlam. He’s not on the card but he’s there. And we’re kind of going to see from here. It’s really a transitional time right now.”
Her response to Mark Henry saying wrestlers can find a way to provide and find employment outside the ring: “Thank you. And I’m so glad that you said that and I hope that he listens to someone like you saying that, because I say that all the time,” Hardy responded. “Wrestling is all he’s known from the time he was 16 years old – a lot of people don’t realize that – so that’s his entire life.
“So, I think for him the realm of a career and a life outside of in-ring action is sort of hard for someone like him to imagine. But it is possible, I feel like, obviously, and that’s what I’m hoping he steers toward. I’m mean, his body can only take so much. It’s been 25, 26 years of this.”
