Matt Hardy was scheduled to return to WWE this month after rehabbing a knee injury for the last several months. As we noted about two months ago, Hardy and Lita split up after Hardy found out from Edge's wife that Lita had been having a relationship with Edge while traveling on the road. The two split and Hardy issued some harsh words to Edge via his official website at TheMattHardy.com.

The Torch noted that Edge's rental car tires had been slashed after a WWE house show several weeks ago. Matt Hardy and friends (including Shannon Moore) were in attendance. As we noted, the two did not cross paths during the night as Edge stayed in a locker-room most of the night. This was the same night Moore was involved in a car accident on his way home.

It is not quite clear what led to Hardy's release other than WWE management may have felt there was really no way to avoid a confrontation between the two even by splitting them up and Matt fell on the lower end, star power wise.

You can pretty much put a lock on it that once Hardy's 90 day contract clause runs up, he'll be with TNA unless he chooses not to.

There will definitely be some backstage heat on Edge and Lita in some circles within WWE due to the release of Matt Hardy. When it comes down to it, Hardy was simply the guy who WWE could afford to lose to lessen the tension between the trio. WWE is in the process if trying to make Edge their next big star. Management has not always been super high on Hardy's interviews either and felt that oft he two guys, Edge was more marketable. Management is also not high on the internet and the news that revolves around it regarding WWE and it didn't help at all for Matt to make the situation public, or confirm reports that had been posted. Lita and Edge were looked at by management as the two who never took the situation public and kept it very low profile.

-- A lot of wrestlers in WWE were surprised to hear about Matt Hardy being let go. There is a general feeling that since Rhyno broke a planter in the lobby of the company hotel at WrestleMania, his release was expected. However, people were more surprised by Hardy’s release. The word going around right now is that he was fired largely because of his online commentary on the situation between himself, Lita, and Edge. Some feel that the company is crossing a line into holding what wrestlers do in their personal lives against them. One source is saying the company didn’t like that a close associate of Hardy’s was the one who spread the story to the media at first.

-- With five people already let go in the last week, there is some worry amongst the talent that there will be more post-WrestleMania cuts in the near future.

So matt get F**ked over by his girl and best mate, then gets the sack... that is shocking....

And if they want to make Edge big with the fans and a future 'prospect' they need to change his charcater a bit and turn him face.... he is too whiney like this.... i like him normally, but i can't be bothered with the 'stressed out' Edge at the moment.

Damn Matt Hardy really got the #ty end of the deal on that one. Why not fire Edge and Lita who where the ones who started the whole thing.
