One half of the WWE Raw Tag Team Champions, Woken Matt Hardy recently spoke with The Philly Voice about his partnership with Bray Wyatt and more.
On his partnership with Bray Wyatt having more potential:
“Long-term booking, my friend. I think Bray is an extremely talented competitor and performer. I’m a big fan of his work. I’m glad I was able to cure him of Sister Abigail and now we’re teaming up. I think there’s still a much bigger potential with the two of us if we get the opportunity to explore that role, which is something we’re working on right now and it’ll happen eventually.”
A possible Brother Nero debut:
“I would love to have Jeff involved. Jeff is totally fine being on his own as the ‘Charismatic Enigma’ Jeff Hardy. He’s totally fine being Brother Nero. I think Brother Nero would be good for him for career longevity, but I think Jeff can go to SmackDown and be amazing and be the “Charismatic Enigma” and he can do everything he can do in that persona, and if we need to utilize him as Brother Nero, we can do that whenever.”
His WWE 24:
“I did see it before, and I was very hands-on working with the WWE Network people. I think they did an amazing job. There was actually talk of making it 90 minutes because you were telling two stories as opposed to just one with both myself and Jeff. The decision was made to keep it in the same format of around an hour time, so they really packed a lot through that hour. I made this pact with my brother back in 2013, I said if we’re going to tell this story, we need to wait for the WWE platform. Fortunately, things worked out. I wanted it to be raw, I wanted it to be real, I wanted it to be a little dark, because there were times that were dark. I think it was a good story to show people that even if you do end up at a bad place in your life at some point, it’s never too late to change. It’s never too late to come back. You just have to put your mind to it and be disciplined.”
