While Impact Wrestling may have seen the best of what the 42-year-old has to offer, the wider audience in WWE are yet to experience the broken brilliance. They just need to work out an agreement with Anthem, the company that has given the Hardys problems over using it. WWE also feels what Matt and Jeff are doing now can only last so long.
