Jeff Hardy signs new two-year contract with TNA

ImpactWrestling.com

Dixie Carter made an appearance on the Bellator 88 broadcast last night (Feb. 7, 2013) to hype King Mo Lawal's TNA debut but also to announce that current heavyweight champion Jeff Hardy has signed a new two-year deal with the company.

So all the hubbub over Jeff Hardy being added to the Alumni section on WWE.com? Yeah that was all for nothing.

That's because "The Charismatic Enigma" has signed a new two-year contract with TNA, the promotion he is currently heavyweight champion of. The deal was announced by company President Dixie Carter on last night's (Feb. 7, 2013) Bellator 88 broadcast on Spike TV immediately following Impact Wrestling.

Initially, Carter simply said she had signed Hardy to a "long-term deal" that would keep him with the company for a "very long time." The ImpactWrestling.com website would later clarify the length of the contract is two years.

This all comes on the heels of Hardy becoming the featured attraction week in and week out, which was said to be done specifically for the purposes of persuading him to re-sign. Apparently, it was an effective strategy and now TNA has locked in the only major star on the roster who can actually move the needle when it comes to pay-per-view business.

Even if that's only a few thousand extra buys.

Perhaps the most important question coming out of this now is whether or not this means TNA agreed to let Hardy sing at Bound for Glory in October like he wants to do.

Oh dear god.
