Former WWE wrestler Matt Hardy and his wife, Reby Sky, were both arrested on New Year’s for assault and battery after getting into a fight with each other at a motel in Virginia, according to a report.
Police went to the Hampton Inn in Emporia, Va., around 5:45 a.m. on Jan. 1 after hearing reports of a man and his girlfriend being in a fight. They found both Hardy and his wife and arrested each of them. Both appeared to be scratched and cut up in their mug shots.
TMZ says the fight started when Reby asked Matt, who has had substance abuse problems in the past, whether he had drank or used any other substances that night. The question must have angered Hardy and led to the fight between the two.
Hardy and Reby were married in October and seem to still be together despite the fight. Matt defended Reby in a tweet sent on Tuesday after receiving some threats:
People can insult me all they want. My wife though, is a different story, especially with serious, vulgar threats like in my previous tweet.

He also linked to a video Wednesday about their engagement:
They also both posted the selfies seen at the top of the post to their Twitter accounts earlier this week. What are they trying to say? Move along, nothing to see here? Usually when there’s one domestic fight like this, things don’t tend to improve in the future.
