WWE legend Matt Hardy has announced his retirement from the ring.
The daredevil, who turns 44 next week, revealed his decision today.
Matt shot to superstardom during the late 90s and early 00s alongside his brother Jeff as The Hardy Boyz.
Now in a video message released to his Twitter followers, The Woken One confirmed his performance at a WWE Live Event in Corpus Christi, TX last night would his last.
Hardy said: “I just want to take a moment and I want to address the WWE Universe. All of the Woken Warriors, all of the Hardy Boyz fans, all of the Mattitude followers all those people who allowed me to live my dream for so many years. This is all I’ve wanted to do and I got to do it at the highest level for 26 years.”
“I’ll never forget the reaction the WWE Universe gave me at WrestleMania 33 and my return it was truly one of the greatest moments of my career. WrestleMania 34 was a great moment winning the Andre The Giant Battle Royal. And I got to bring my creation, The Ultimate Deletion to Raw in the main event spot. A lot of cool stuff I’ve got to do.”
Hardy, who has been struggling with several injuries over recent months, continued: “There has been a lot of speculation for quite a while online if I’m going to be wrestling any longer or not.
“WWE, fortunately, they let me to fulfill all of my advertised commitments but tonight here in Corpus Christi this was the last advertised commitment I had.
“I never say never, or as Woken Hardy would say: ‘NEVAH SAY NEVAH!’ But tonight here in Corpus Christi will most likely be the last time you’ll see Woken Matt Hardy in a WWE ring.”
“I have 2 young kids and a wife and it’s time for me to go home.”
The Hardy Boyz made a stunning return to WWE at last year’s WrestleMania and immediately captured the Raw Tag Team Championship.
The brothers went there separate ways towards the end of last year to compete as singles stars.
But Matt would later team up with Bray Wyatt and capture the tag belts again before losing the straps to The B-Team earlier this summer.
