And… “Broken” Matt Hardy is back.
The WWE Superstar released a video to his personal YouTube channel on Thursday night titled “It Has Begun.”
The video shows Hardy talking in his “Broken” persona and asking Senor Benjamin (his father-in-law and former wrestling character) to bring him the “Cloak of Battle.”
“It has begun. The #7Deities have WOKEN my #BROKENBrilliance on the plane identified as WWE. Senor Benjamin, PROCURE my Coat of Battle. The #GreatWar has begun,” Hardy had written on the video’s description.
This is one of the many signs that point to Hardy bringing the popular gimmick from his time at Impact Wrestling over to WWE. He and Jeff left Impact in February and had returned to WWE in April, but they were prevented from using anything from “Broken Universe” due to a few ownership disputes.
But after Impact’s parent company, Anthem Sports and Entertainment had announced that they were dropping the legal battle over the trademark, Matt and family had wasted no time to drop hints of the “Broken Universe’s” return.
It has been reported that WWE shall alter the gimmick a bit, so “Broken” will be changed into “Woken, ” or something along those lines before Matt’s new persona arrives on TV. Hardy has changed his Twitter profile name to Woken Matt Hardy.
WWE has not released anything official regarding Hardy’s gimmick change. But the fans will keep a close eye on next week’s episode of Monday Night Raw.
