What's the story?

Well, we may not be seeing much of Matt Hardy these days after he seemingly confirmed his retirement from professional wrestling but, after the man himself confirmed that he was merely taking some time off to rehab some wear and tear, he's not revealed a completely new look!

In case you didn't know...

It had been reported for several months that Matt Hardy was taking an extended period of time away from the ring due to an issue which is causing his spine and pelvis to fuse, likely due to years of physical wear and tear and an emotional address saw Hardy say he was "going home" in what many believed to be a retirement video.

In the video, Matt Hardy thanked the WWE Universe and the WWE for allowing him to bring his own creations to the biggest wrestling company in the world and also says he'll never forget the pop the Hardy Boyz got in their surprise comeback at WrestleMania 33. The Woken One did say, "Never say never," though, so only time will tell if Hardy will ever return in the future.

Hardy has been working in an ambassadorial role ever since his hiatus from performing and has also been learning the ropes backstage with a view to transitioning into a producer role.

The heart of the matter

Over the past few years, Matt Hardy has worn a blonde streak in his wild mane as well as a full, greying beard, but it appears Matt Hardy's dip in the Lake of Reincarnation may have actually been a swim in the fountain of youth as the Tag Team supremo looks almost exactly like the Hardy we'd have known from his Team Xtreme days two decades ago!

What's next?

Matt Hardy's future is still up in the air. Will he remain a WWE ambassador or transition into a backstage role? Will he return to the ring? Who knows. With such creative talent, the WWE Universe is his oyster - but Hardy now looks like youth is on his side. Only time will tell when we see Hardy next!
