We’re all still in a holding pattern waiting for WWE and Impact Wrestling to come to whatever friggin’ arrangement is necessary for us to finally get the Broken Hardys back on television. We keep seeming to come to the precipice of the Hardys getting re-broken, only to get more bland babyface Team Xtreme nonsense.
Anyway, while we’re twiddling our thumbs waiting for dilapidated boats and Brothers Nero or whatever, the Hardys are here and doing their thing, and at some point they’ll probably embark upon solo careers. In a new interview with Sport Bible, the Hardys were asked about the eventuality of re-entering singles competition in WWE, and Matt name-dropped some dream opponents for both himself and his brother.
At the top of his list is perhaps the biggest no-brainer ever.
“Speaking from my perspective, I think right now our goal, especially starting, coming back, being reintroduced to the WWE universe after being away for a substantial amount of time, really was to be a tag team – we became famous for being a tag team. I think down the road there will be a potential for both of us doing our own things; we’re both strong singles personalities in many ways, and I think as performers we’ve grown as we’ve got older; we’ve got smarter. Just for starters, if we get to where we need to be, I think ‘Broken’ Matt Hardy against Bray Wyatt would be an amazing deal, and you look at him [Jeff] – him vs Seth Rollins, him vs Finn Balor, either one of us vs Roman Reigns – there’s a lot of cool, interesting combinations of guys who became stars in the last five or six years that we’ve never worked against, it’s totally like a fresh slate. So there’s a lot of potential forces as singles competitors also.”
A feud between Broken Matt and Bray Wyatt? Yeah, that seems pretty obvious, but also pretty obviously wonderful. It would allow Bray to play up and embrace the goofier aspects of his character (which WWE often tries to tiptoe around), and allows for a situation where Broken Matt has to pretend to be afraid of baby dolls and/or use King Maxell to counter the bad baby doll juju. Extraordinary!
