WWE.com is reporting that Matt Hardy suffered a broken right hand during the match with his brother, Jeff Hardy, at Sunday night’s Backlash pay-per-view.
Matt will be required to wear a cast, according to the Web site. The story did not address how much time he would miss, but wrestlingobserver.com reported that the early estimation is four to six weeks.
Presuming the injury is not a work, the timing is unfortunate for Matt, who is coming off the most high profile program of his career and seemed to be slotted as the No. 3 heel on Raw behind Randy Orton and The Big Show.
