WWE megastar hints at retirement ahead of SummerSlam – Fans won’t like this

Hardy tweeted a photo showing him saluting the crowd and extended his appreciation for everyone who stood by his side during the good and bad times of his legendary wrestling stint.

The Woken One wrote: “To all that supported me in the independents & OMEGA.. To the fans of Team Xtreme.. To the Mattitude Followers.. To the OUTSPOKEN fans who brought me back in 2005.. To the people who backed me when I was REINCARNATED in pro wrestling.. To the #WOKEN Warriors.. THANK YOU.”

The tag team legend has pinned that tweet on his account but nothing has been confirmed yet as the whole thing may just be a stunt from his wacky gimmick.

Matt and his brother Jeff joined WWE in 1998 and formed The Hardy Boyz, one of the greatest tag teams of all time that stood out thanks to their incredible high-flying and risk-taking moves.

The Hardy Boyz became eight-time Tag Team Champions in WWE and revolutionised TLC Matches along with legendary rivals The Dudley Boyz as well as Edge & Christian.

Matt also enjoyed a successful singles career as he won the ECW Championship as well as the US Championship and also stood out as Cruiserweight Champion thanks to his Mattitude gimmick.

The former European Champion reinvigorated himself during his stint at Impact Wrestling after a few turbulent years as he created the character of ‘Broken’ Matt Hardy.

The ex-World Tag Team Champion adopted a darker, wackier and meaner persona that earned him an even bigger following and saw him standing out in the independent circuit as well as in Ring of Honor.

Last year The Hardy Boyz returned to WWE at WrestleMania 33 where they won the RAW Tag Team Championships and then Matt restarted his singles career as ‘Woken’ Matt Hardy.

The 43-year-old won the RAW Tag Team Championships with Bray Wyatt and it looks like The Deleters of Worlds will compete at SummerSlam in a Triple Threat Match against The Revival and The B-Team, who beat them for the belts.

SummerSlam takes place on August 19 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
