Matt Hardy returned to WWE TV tonight on Smackdown Live, teaming with Jeff Hardy.

The word backstage is that WWE has involved a clause in Matt and Jeff Hardy's existing WWE deal, rolling it over for a third year.  Had WWE not rolled over the contract, it would have expired next month. 

Matt Hardy had been teasing a countdown until the expiration of his WWE deal on social media of late, but it would appear that was simply Hardy's latest attempt to use social media to his advantage by creating a buzz online.  Matt Hardy had taken some time off to focus on getting in better shape and overcoming some lingering injury issues.   He had also worked behind the scenes as a Producer during his time off.  He had last wrestled for the company in September 2018.  He hadn't appeared on WWE TV since an August episode of Raw.

The Hardys returned to WWE at Wrestlemania 33 in April 2017, signing a two year deal shortly before that point.
