Matt Hardy Returns, King Of The Ring; & More News

Ryan Clark

* Matt Hardy who is currently out of WWE action due to surgery returned to wrestling action tonight but not for WWE. Matt wrestled a handi-cap match against a team called Fame and Fortune on Saturday January 8th in Clinton, NC at the Sampson County Agri Expo Center for Live Action Wrestling. Matt looked good and seemed to have put on a few pounds, but over all a great match as Matt defeated both members of the tag team. At the beginning of the show the ring announcer announced that Lex Luger was supposed to be at the show, but no showed the promotion and announced they had a surprise superstar to take his place. The music hit and out comes Matt Hardy, great crowd response. Matt said he was happy to be there and was taking the place of Luger. I find this very interesting that WWE would let one of there contracted wrestlers work and indy show when he is in rehab and due to make a return. Not a bad crowd, around 250. To note David Flair was also advertised and did not show up.

* Silvervision are planning to release King of the Ring 1995 and 1996 on DVD as part of the Tagged classics series. It is due to be released in March of this year.
