It was recently announced by The WWE that this coming Monday night’s episode of RAW, which is set to take place from inside The Angel Of The Winds Arena in Everett, Washington, will see Matt Hardy face Randy Orton in a No Holds Barred Match.
This match was reportedly made after Orton used a steel chair and knocked Hardy out with a shot straight to his head. This was done in an in-ring segment where Matt Hardy confronted Randy Orton over his recent attack on WWE Hall Of Famer Edge.
The in-ring segment that took place on RAW was reportedly done to write Matt Hardy off of WWE TV as his contract with the company is set to expire on March 1st and he is reportedly on his way out soon thereafter. There is no word yet on if Matt Hardy has re-signed with the company, or if The WWE is just using him until March 1st, but updates will be provided once it is made available.

Matt Hardy To Battle Randy Orton in No Holds Barred Match
This past Monday on RAW, Randy Orton subjected Matt Hardy to the same brutal Con-Chair-To that sent Edge out of RAW on a stretcher. Now, Hardy is coming for payback.
In the wake of Orton’s heinous attack, the former RAW Tag Team Champion is now slated to battle The Apex Predator in a No Holds Barred Match, placing Orton directly on a collision course with his most recent victim — to say nothing of a Superstar who refuses to take the abuse lying down. After all, Hardy is as much a trailblazer as Edge, and his history is almost completely entwined with that of The Rated-R Superstar. Then again, Randy Orton seems to take a particular delight in destroying legends these days. He’ll be more than happy to do it again.
Tune in to RAW this Monday, live at 8/7 C on USA Network.
