Matt Hardy released from TNA
By JON WALDMAN -- SLAM! Wrestling


TNA has announced that it has released Matt Hardy from his contract with the company.

In a posting on its website, the company stated that, "TNA today released IMPACT WRESTLING star Matt Hardy from its roster. Hardy was already under suspension from the company."

Hardy had been with TNA since the beginning of 2011, debuting at the Genesis pay-per-view on January 9. During his run in TNA, Matt had been part of Immortal alongside his brother, Jeff Hardy. Hardy's feuds in TNA primarily focused on the running battle between Immortal and Fortune, as well as a run against fellow WWE alumnus Rob Van Dam.

In June, Hardy announced that he was taking time away from the ring. In a Twitter posting on June 19, 2011, Hardy stated, "between dates, injuries, & outside issues, I'm gonna have a few week off & I'm ecstatic! The Matt Hardy Movement is going into full effect!"

Hardy came to TNA after a lengthy run in WWE, which ended in October 2010 following a social media campaign to be released from his contract.

The news of Hardy's release came soon after news broke on Saturday that Hardy had been arrested with a DWI charge.
