Earlier this week, there was a report that claimed WWEs plan is to use the Broken Hardys gimmick, and that the company was negotiating with Anthem to make it happen.
However, Sportskeeda now reports that the delay in WWE using the gimmick has nothing to do with the potential legal action or negotiations to buy the rights. The site reports that Vince McMahon is not a fan of the gimmick and chose not to use it when he brought the brothers back. Many on the writing team are big fans of the Broken gimmick, and have been pushing for the company to use it.
The site then claims that due to the chants and reactions from the crowds, that McMahon is now open to using to the Broken gimmick once the current incarnation of The Hardy Boyz has run its course. Word is that nothing would happen until they drop the tag titles, with the company eying a Bray Wyatt vs. Broken Matt program. Vince McMahon reportedly sees Jeff as a top guy.
