Apparently, the accident took place when Hardy was coming from home from Jacksonville on Friday after AEW Dynamite. On the way, Hardy encountered a car wreck just 25 minutes away from his home.

As the star stood in traffic, a truck suddenly collided with Hardy’s car at about 40mph. As Hardy described in a later tweet, this was because of the concerned driver “rubbernecking the wreck.

‘Rubbernecking the wreck’ means “distracted driving.” In this instance, it usually means when someone is looking at the side of the roads, instead of the road itself.

Although the back of the car is destroyed, Matt Hardy said he is fine and joked that he is invincible. See his tweet describing the accident and the picture of his car below –

Matt Hardy will be wrestling in Impact

It is a good thing that Hardy is alright. Earlier this week on Tuesday, he and his Private Party friends showed up in Impact, defeating James Storm and Chris Sabin.

This victory earned the Private Party a title shot against the Impact Tag Team Champions Good Brothers. The match will take place at Impact’s No Surrender PPV on February 13.

The trio was not happy with AEW’s Top Wrestler pick this week, which was Dark Order’s, Alex Reynolds. Hardy wrote how Alex “didn’t win 3 matches spanning 2 different companies within 24 hours. The Hardy Party are the REAL Wrestlers of the Week. THE TRUTH IS THE TRUTH.”

On the next episode of Impact, Matt Hardy and Private Party will appear once again. As a veteran and path maker of the tag team division worldwide, it is great to see Matt Hardy managing one of the biggest and youngest tag teams of the modern era.

With the help of the former member of Team Xtreme, The Private Party is bound for great things.
