Matt Hardy is currently one-half of the SmackDown Live tag team champions with his brother Jeff Hardy. They are one of the most decorated tag teams in WWE history, but, Matt’s not stopping there.
Recently on social media, he was asked by a fan what title he’d like to have a run at next and he quickly answered, the Intercontinental Championship and then the WWE World Title.
His response says a couple of interesting things.
First, while it’s possible to hold two championships (as Becky Lynch is proving) his long-term goal doesn’t seem to be to stay with his brother Jeff as a tag team. Hardy has always been known to reinvent his character and has bigger and loftier goals for himself as a singles competitor.
Second, despite rumors that his contract was coming to an end not long ago, perhaps he’s not close to being done with WWE. If he’s currently a tag title holder and has aspirations to go after singles belts, chances are he’ll be sticking around for a while.
Will WWE Go This Route With Hardy?
There are rumors he might be working on a new character that’s all about money and power. It will be interesting to see if WWE pursues this and if they like it, gives him a title run with the new persona.
If anyone can become an IC Champ the fans would get behind, something suggests Matt Hardy could be that guy.
