On Monday, pro wrestler Matt Hardy announced on his YouTube channel that he is departing from the WWE. “It’s just time for me to take a break and become a free agent,” he said. “I didn’t want to leave WWE because it is my home. The reason I needed to leave WWE is because when it comes to my creative stance and my creative outlook on myself and my career and how I wanted to go for these last three or four years that I have to spend as an active in-ring competitor, I just think myself and WWE are on different pages.” SI's Justin Barrasso discusses Hardy's departure and explains why AEW could be a company that will best suit his skillset.
