Great performance. He's doing absolutely fine on his own with his brother out injured.

Both brothers mentioned to Corey Graves on their Network special upon returning how they have solo dreams and now Matt gets his chance first.

I hope he's built up as a credible title contender and not just used to put over younger guys just because of his age.

Matt needs the broken gimmick in my opinion

Even as a pair the Hardys have lost the appeal they had when they returned and given how popular the gimmick is, WWE would be stupid not to capitalise on it

Quote Bray Wyatt comes out to the ring and says he never had a childhood and never celebrated holidays, but he never cared. Wyatt goes on a rant about the fans and says he tried to enlighten them but they wouldn't listen. He says they're all pathetic, and their ignorance fuels him. He laughs and repeats "you're all dead" over and over until Matt Hardy comes out to interrupt.

- Matt Hardy vs. Bray Wyatt: Wyatt takes control of this one early on and hits a big splash in the corner. He goes to follow up with a senton but Matt rolls out of the way. Matt starts fighting back and mounts a comeback now. Wyatt misses a shot in the corner and Matt clotheslines him down. He hits a bulldog for a two count. Wyatt goes for a side suplex, but Matt counters with the Side Effect for another two count. Matt keeps in control and goes for the Twist of Fate, but Wyatt escapes. Matt connects with an elbow shot and drops Wyatt, then goes up to the top rope. Matt goes flying with a moonsault, but Wyatt rolls out of the way and Matt crashes into the mat. Wyatt turns upside down, then gets up and hits the Sister Abigail on Matt for the three count.

Winner: Bray Wyatt

- After the match, Matt sits in the corner and recovers. HE starts doing the "delete" motion a few times as the fans start chanting along. Matt starts furiously doing the motion over and over sitting in the corner. Cole wonders if we're witnessing a Hardy breakdown.

He came out without acknowledging the crowd and without doing the delete motion and I was like maybe it's true that Vince has stopped him doing it.
 
But post match we can safely say now that he's finally going to be broken in E with the heavy use of delete and for the first time the commentators being allowed to draw attention to his state of mind.
 
This is going to be really fun to watch and could earn him a future midcard title run.

I'm worried about this gimmick. We all saw how well the House of Horrors went down and contrary to popular belief the vast majority of WWE fans have no idea what the whole broken concept is. Plus to my knowledge they still can't use the gimmick because of Anthem ownership of it. That's why he's going with the whole Woken thing. 

At its height the gimmick on TNA still only had an audience of about 400,000, and they went all in with it. Raw is well over 2,000,000 and WWE fans have much less of a tolerance for skits in the style of Hardy, plus more flighty sponsors to appease. We'll see where this goes. 

If nothing else though this is a promising moment for Bray Wyatt. He could rack up quite a few wins off the back of this.

There's no way WWE will allow Matt & Jeff (when he returns) to have the creative freedom they did in TNA to make this Woken (Broken) universe into what it was. This is going to be a dreadful WWE version of it.....I just hope it's not, and it's allowed to organically become what it is.

WWE will milk this for all they can

I do think given how much effort has went into trying to secure the gimmick in order for it to be used, Hardy will want the freedome similar to what he had in TNA

The hardys are popular anyway and shift a fair bit of merch so this is only going to help things

I agree that he won't have the freedom he was allowed and WWE should be wary of Reby Hardy. She does not know when to keep quiet and let things happen and will blurt out anything the company does that she doesn't agree with. WWE have more factors to take into account than Impact including sponsors, current characters and a fanbase that are far easier to annoy/upset/offend.

I'm worried.

It shouldn't be like the TNA version of the gimmick because it should be fresher, more modern and not a carbon copy.
 
Quote Matt Hardy continues to comment on the “Broken” chants he did after his loss to Bray Wyatt on Raw. He tweeted the following today:

NO. I have EVOLVED.

My PRIMAL PASSENGER has returned to drive my VESSEL..

I AM MORE. https://t.co/0w78vpZOzc

My physical contact with Bray Wyatt on #RAW seems to have TRIGGERED & AWAKENED my PRIMAL PASSENGER. https://t.co/IBeryV4mQZ

What in NERIC's name was my MORTAL VESSEL thinking on #RAW?

I showed symptoms of a Spot Monkey ADDICKKTION.

That's the most Matt has posted on Twitter as the broken gimmick and his nonsense makes next week something to look forward to.
 
Los Angeles crowd will be a lot louder and involved in the delete stuff than the Knoxville crowd were.

Quote As noted, Matt Hardy’s losing streak continued on this week’s episode of Raw after he suffered a loss to Bray Wyatt.

However, the WWE is moving forward with the debut of his “Broken” gimmick. Hardy snapped with a “delete!” chant after the match and later commented on Twitter about his “dormant condishtion” being “woken” up

Dave Meltzer reported in the latest issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that WWE won’t be using the ‘Broken’ name but instead will be using ‘WOKEN.’ The gimmick will be very similar to the one he used in Impact Wrestling and ROH.


I don’t like the term ‘WOKEN’ doesn’t make sense shouldn’t it be AWOKEN?

From what I understand Anthem have surrendered the rights to the gimmick now meaning WWE are free to have the Hardy’s use it, the new name is just WWE wanted to put their own spin on it as I’m sure they will want to tweak with the gimmick and not just run a carbon of copy of what Matt did in TNA and ROH.

I didn’t see much of the Broken Hardy’s in TNA as I wasn’t watching it, I watched the final deletion match and a couple of other bits, it seemed very out there and I’m interested to see how far WWE will go with it, I can’t see them allowing Matt and Jeff the same level of creative freedom they had in TNA and management will possibly want full creative control over this gimmick which could cause conflict.

Hopefully this will be better than WWE’s past efforts with gimmicks from rival promotions like the NWO which in WWE was a watered down piece of crap version of one of the most successful gimmicks ever.

That's true. No problem with E changing the word from broken so it's a slightly changed gimmick for their own company. Just the wording could be better.

Looks like he will be fueding with Bray after Raw, but I would prefer them together.

Having them on the same page with their weird gimmicks would make for a very entertaining duo.
