The wrestling rumour mill at this time of year goes into overdrive.
As soon as WrestleMania looms large over us, reports of famous former faces, celebrities and new signings dominate conversation as much as talk about the confirmed matches.
It was Kurt Angle a few months back, while Goldberg vs Brock Lesnar has had a long run at further whetting the nostalgic appetite and some returning Divas have this week been confirmed.
But the near-constant internet chatter has been about the impending comebacks of hottest free agents in the business – Matt and Jeff Hardy.
The pair, famed for their death defying antics of the Attitude Era and reinvention as the Broken Hardys in TNA Wrestling, have been talked up with growing volume about a return to WWE.
And Twitter ramped those levels to fever pitch this week, the WWE Network’s account sharing a video package from WrestleMania XXV when the two brothers met each other.
It contained a nod to the Broken characters that have proven so popular in TNA, reportedly patented by the Hardys this week, and was shared by Matt Hardy to send the WWE Universe into pandemonium.
Throw in a hint of a ladder match for the RAW tag-tiles at WrestleMania and, again, the world was wondering whether there would be a cause for further Deletion at the Show of Shows.
But do not hold your breath, least of all because the team are in action at Ring of Honor’s Supercard of Honor on April 1.

Yes, it looks like the WWE has offered a contract to the Hardy brothers, but to push through a deal in time for WrestleMania will be incredibly tricky.
Far more realistic would be some mooted notes that the Hardys will make a dramatic return to RAW the following night.
If they were to pull it off, either at Mania or RAW, it would be a stunning move that would light up the Florida crowd.
In a division that has been lacking since New Day relinquished the titles, WWE’s tag-teams need a breath of fresh air and Broken Hardys would definitely inject life into storylines.
To pull the rabbit out of the hat, completely under wraps and on the Grandest Stage is the stuff that dreams are made of.
We will have to wait and see if those hopes remain in the imaginary realms rather than rooted in reality but you can be sure that right up until the final bell of the triple-threat battle for the RAW tag-team titles, the Hardys will be willed on to make an appearance.
