Matt Hardy Recalls Vince McMahon Ending Chances Of Broken Matt Hardy In WWE

Matt Hardy wanted to do his Broken Matt Hardy character in WWE.

During a recent episode of his podcast, “The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy,” the pro wrestling legend and AEW star reflected on talking with Triple H about doing the persona in WWE, but Vince McMahon ultimately deciding against it.

“I remember talking to Triple H and he said ‘Maybe we could do a good Hardy Boyz run, kind of a throwback to the original WWE Hardy Boyz and then maybe we get into the Broken Matt Hardy in a little bit,'” Hardy recalled. “And then Vince [McMahon] is like ‘They’re back in WWE, they’re the Hardy Boyz.’”

Hardy continued, “And then later on, whenever I did do Woken Matt Hardy, the WWE version. It’s so funny because we sat down, we talked for 30 minutes about what the character was or whatever. He says, ‘Well they keep doing, delete, delete, delete, delete, they won’t stop that sh*t. I guess we have to give it to them.’ So that became just part of who I am now.”
