WWE (finally) releases Matt Hardy from his contract

So sayeth  Yes, he did get the "future endeavors" line in spite of his ridiculous behavior.

He had tweeted this an hour ago:

What's up all? I hope today is treating u good. I'm excited, just heard the news an announcement I've been waitin 4 is happening shortly! :)

Jim Ross chimed in with this when the news was posted:

WWE has come to terms on the release of Matt Hardy. Know no details just that fact. Good luck to Matt. Probably best 4 all involved.

The month-long odyssey is over.  I eagerly await the next stream of tweets and pin pupil YouTube videos.

Update: We have tweets.

Thank God! :) I swear.. It was harder for me to get released then it was to get hired! This is ABSOLUTELY what I want, now I can be me!

I wanna thank WWE for giving me an opportunity, & I thank all the people & friends that helped me there. But I HAD to move on to be happy.

I wanna thank JR, who hired me, Michael Hayes, who taught me SO much, & Vince, for letting me make a living & learn from him for 12 years.

While some of you make look at this as an ending-I promise you, this is THE MUTHAF*CKING BEGINNING FOR MATT HARDY! Now I can create change!

Altho WWE gave me SO much, I honestly feel like a prisoner set free. Now I have no more strict rules, personal or creative, to be bound by.

I want to change the business in many area, the way workers are treated & think, & how to live happily outside of the machine. I'm excited!
