Musician HARDY made an impact on the most recent edition of Monday Night RAW, and confirmed that he will be performing live at the Royal Rumble.
After being hit by his own signature guitar by Solo Sikoa recently, Elias looked to gain a measure of revenge when he took on ‘The Enforcer’ in a Music City Street Fight on the 2nd January 2022 edition of Monday Night RAW.
However, what wasn’t expected from the match was interference from country music singer and songwriter HARDY. Entering the ring, the musician attempted to hit Sikoa with a guitar – however there was little reaction to the impact, and HARDY was left running for safety as the match continued.

The match ended with another dominant victory for Solo Sikoa, who slammed Elias off the apron with a Spinning Solo on to a grand piano to get the victory.
It was also confirmed later in the evening that HARDY’s latest release ‘Sold Out’ will act as the official theme song for the 2023 Royal Rumble, and the musician will be in attendance to perform the track live. Given the fact they’ve started his involvement so early, it has led to some speculation that he may be more involved than just making his musical performance.
There has been plenty of speculation as to who could make surprise appearances in the January showpiece, however one WWE Hall Of Famer has confirmed they would turn down the opportunity if it were presented to them.
