During WrestleMania 33 on Sunday night, the Hardy Boyz made their much-anticipated return to WWE in a ladder match for the Raw Tag Team Championship. The match was scheduled to be a Triple Threat between champions The Club, Sheamus and Cesaro, and Enzo Amore and Big Cass.
Before the match began, the official hosts of WrestleMania, The New Day, came to the top of the ramp and announced that the match would now be a Fatal 4-Way. They emerged in ring gear, and teased that it would be THEY who were entering the fray. But after a long moment, a very familiar theme hit, and Matt and Jeff Hardy emerged.
And believe it or not, the Hardys actually managed to capture the Raw tag titles in the end, thanks in part to an absolutely insane swanton bomb from Jeff Hardy. Like you would expect.
The Hardy Boyz are currently involved in a legal dispute with Impact Wrestling over the ownership of their “Broken Universe” characters, which is why they returned as their classic “Hardy Boyz/Team Xtreme” iterations. But there’s nothing to stop the Broken Universe from rebooting in WWE once this all gets sorted out.
The crowd broke out into chants of both “DELETE” and “BROTHER NERO,” so it’s clear that there are a whole lot of people who want the Broken Hardys to appear sooner, rather than later.
The Hardys were in action in Ring of Honor on Saturday night — in another ladder match — as they lost the ROH tag titles to the Young Bucks. Before WrestleMania on Sunday, they hosted a BROKEN tailgate party. So they’ve had quite the weekend.
