  • The Hardys/GFW legal situation spilled onto Twitter this week when Impact Wrestling sent a direct/private message to "Jimmy's Famous Seafood" restaurant in Baltimore inquiring about some "potential partnership opportunities."

  • A screenshot of the message was tweeted by Reby Hardy, Matt's wife.

  • The restaurant, which does business with multiple WWE wrestlers by direct shipping them prepped meals, including the Hardys and Braun Strowman, tweeted back "When you release the Broken Hardy rights, we will set up a call."

    Said the owner of the restaurant:

    "I don't think [GFW] realized the relationship we have with Matt and Jeff. They got caught with their pants down," said Minadakis, who noted that he speaks often with Matt Hardy and said Hardy got a chuckle out of it. "Although we don't have a direct relationship with WWE, the WWE and NXT guys really put our name out there. I just felt if we did anything with Global Force or whatever they're calling themselves these days, it would kind of be a smack in the face."

    Minadakis added he thought it was odd GFW made its pitch to Jimmy's via Twitter.

    "It's completely unprofessional," Minadakis said. "I thought it was a joke at first but then I saw that it was a verified account."
