In the ongoing legal battle over the rights to the Broken Matt Hardy pro wrestling gimmick, Baltimore Seafood restaurant Jimmy's Famous Seafood has weighed in, firmly on Team Hardy.
Hardy legal counsel and wife of Matt Hardy, Reby Hardy, revealed a private Twitter conversation between the restaurant and the official Impact Wrestling account in which Jimmy's Seafood totally shuts down Impact's attempts to set up a business partnership unless GFW releases the rights to the gimmick, which they have prevented the Hardys from using since the left the company for WWE.

Of course, none of this brings us any closer to a resolution over the rights, but the ongoing legal feud is probably more interesting than any wrestling angle anyway.
