It seems the Hardys are in the Dudley role from a few years back- work the legends with the new guys and bring them up.
So in that vein, the WWE might not be interested in it, but the Hardys- who won't get the chance to develop new intellectual property while working with the WWE- very much have a vested interest in this litigation. GFGPGFWIAAP has absolutely zero use for the "Broken" gimmick without the Hardys, but at the same time, they're in the position where they'll take any income they can get.
I think like you said that WWE aren't really interested in the Hardy's long term as a team, but from some of the stuff reported since the hardy's to come back to WWE, they seem likes they might be interested long term in Jeff Hardy because they still see him as a main event draw more then Matt, that's why i think Matt is trying so hard to get the rights the the ''Broken'' Gimmick and Jeff seem to not really care one way or the other about this. Matt knows that if they split them up, he will need something like that to get over as an upper mid card guy in WWE and if for some reason, Jeff decides to stay after they're contract is up and Matt decided to leave like what happened with the dudley's, then Matt got a money making gimmick when he goes back to the indy's.
Personally, i just want this saga to end and both parties gets what they want with this. This as lasted way to long now and it didn't do anything positive for either Matt/Reby or GFW/Anthem. Jeff is the one that is gaining from this whole thing by not speaking out on this at all and letting Matt and Reby fight this. Jeff as always been the star out of the 2 until this gimmick happened and without it, matt continue to be just another midcard stuck in jeff's shadow.
