Paul Roma killed his push by not selling anything in a PPV match which Wright was booked to dominate.

Meltzer is reporting that all hope is not lost yet. Vince reportedly does want to use the "Broken" gimmick but wants to reach an agreement with Anthem first to make sure there are no legal repercussions. WWE feels that they're in the clear for the most part but does think Anthem would sue and Vince is being very risk-averse at this point. He sees no upside to a lawsuit even if he wins. WWE might be willing to pay a small amount (for them, it would be a lot for TNA) to buy the rights, or even agree to have a talent appear for 1 night only in TNA as they did in the past with Christian. The fact that Vince is willing to talk at all shows that he's pretty into the gimmick.  Vince has told Matt he can keep doing some of the smaller mannerisms to foreshadow the return of the gimmick, at least for now. 

TNA just lost a lawsuit today with their former production company to the tune of $330,000 and were forced to admit breach of contract in court. So it's good timing for WWE if TNA needs the money that badly.

Lots of rumors that the return of the Broken Hardys is imminent, maybe as early as next week's Raw.  There are some reports that the legal issues involving the rights have been cleared up.  This coincides with the Hardys losing streak, and the fact that they got beat up by basically every team in WWE over the past 2 days, which might be the precursor to them becoming "Broken" again.  Last night the innuendo which much higher than usual, with Jeff Hardy even wondering if they were done and then singing the "Obsolete" song about themselves.  The thought always was that WWE wouldn't allow them to continue to tease a gimmick from another company unless they expected to use it eventually - for the first couple of nights maybe, but it's been 3 months now so you'd think that there's always been a payoff plan in place and they were just waiting for Jerry McDevitt to work his magic.  We could be there now.  If nothing comes from this, then it's just a complete burial of what could've been one of the hottest acts in the company at least in the short-term, and that makes zero sense.

I don't know how it came across on tv last night but the live crowd was loving the Hardys especially if they said anything brokenish.

Nordholm is holding up the deal again.

PWInsider:

As Rebecca "Reby" Hardy stated this afternoon on Twitter, there has been a deal in place between Anthem Media and The Hardys that would allow the Hardys to utilize the "Broken Hardy" gimmick going forward.

In seeking to confirm Hardy's social media claims, PWInsider.com spoke with several sources who, under condition of anonymity, stated that all sides agreed to a deal in principle.

In a deal that it is believed Billy Corgan helped mediate, PWInsider.com has been told that all sides would have released a statement wishing each other well and would have agreed to no longer comment on each other publicly. The Hardys would have been able to utilize the "Broken" gimmick and (one would assume) Anthem Media would have received some sort of payment in exchange.

WWE was not involved in the deal, according to multiple sources.

The deal was then drafted by the Hardys' lawyers and sent to Anthem Media's Ed Nordholm to sign off on, but for whatever reason, several weeks have gone by without a response from Nordholm or any indication that the agreement was actually going to be signed.

One source stated that when Nordholm received the agreement in writing, he claimed that it wasn't what the two sides agreed upon, but confirmed that since that point, there had been no additional communication with the Hardys' side.

The drafted agreement led to Matt Hardy's comments on Twitter that they were close to a resolution on the situation. At the time, Impact sources remained steadfast that the two sides were as far apart as ever.

While Nordholm could still technically sign off on the agreement, Jeff Jarrett's comments during his media conference call today where he explicitly stated that there has been no changes regarding the situation and that Anthem, as producers of Impact Wrestling, hold ownership of the gimmick sparked Rebecca Hardy's latest social media comments.

A number of sources we spoke with today believed that unless Nordholm signs off on the agreement, the Hardys will have no last recourse but to file a lawsuit seeking ownership of the gimmick. We spoke with one source today who believes that decisions made by the company during the time period Dixie Carter owned Impact Wrestling were technically breaches of the Hardys' contracts, which appears to be the strategy the family would use as their strategy.

So, while it appeared last week that things were finally calming down between the two sides, it appears yet another volcano may explode due to Nordholm not signing off on the agreement. Whether the Hardys decide to go on the offensive and actually sue remains to be seen, but it appears that after all attempts at negotiating and all the back and forth sniping on social media, the stage has indeed been set for a legal showdown.
