Well, this is certainly turning out to be a news-worthy day.
Former WWE champion Matt Hardy was arrested at a motel in Virginia earlier this month ... after allegedly getting into a fight with his wrestler wife ... TMZ Sports has learned.
Just look at the mug shots of Hardy and 27-year-old Reby Sky -- both appear bloody and scratched up.
Hardy has multiple scratch marks all over his face and Sky -- real name Rebecca Hardy -- appears to be sporting a fat lip, black eye and several small cuts on her face.
Law enforcement tells TMZ Sports ... cops raced to the Hampton Inn in Emporia, VA on January 1st around 5:45 AM after someone at the hotel call 911.
During the 911 call, obtained by TMZ Sports, the hotel staffer told the operator ... "A guest just came down here and said somebody's beating the hell out of his wife a girl or something."
When cops arrived to the scene, both Matt and Sky were arrested for assault and battery. They were released on $3,500 bail.
Our sources tell us both Matt and Sky got restraining orders against each other.
Since the incident, both Matt and Reby have posted photos of each other -- and it appears they are still together and going strong.
Just to nail the imagery home, here are their mugshots courtesy of TMZ:
I'm kind of at a loss. Long time readers know that I've written more words about Matt Hardy than I probably have any other wrestler alive, and it seems like I've finally run out. I don't know any other ways to explain what an irrational, immature, self-absorbed garbage person he is and not seem like a broken record.
To make a long (and frankly, terrible) story short, I'll just say this: Matt Hardy is a goober/man-child that never really got over the fact that his brother was more popular and successful than him at wrestling, so he used social media to try and elongate his staying power long past it's expiration date. He did this so frequently and obnoxiously (remember MATTHEW?) that people started to turn on him for being such a fame whore.
However, Matt's real issue is that he's a drug addict who might actually have some undiagnosed psychological issues, and he married a woman who is more TEAM EXTREME in regards to disregarding her own personal safety than Lita ever was. The fact that they have gotten into an argument so severe that they came to physical blows is as infuriating as it is not surprising, and the fact that either of them would still be with a person that feels that physically attacking the other is remotely acceptable behavior is upsetting to say the least.
I hope Matt and Reby get their shit together, but like I said I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't. Afterall, this is the same guy that thought it would be funny to get high and electrocute his girlfriend for You Tube hits.
