What was ‘The Ultimate Deletion’ and why is everyone talking about it?
In the last 12 hours, there’s a high chance you’ve come across a screenshot or video from “The Ultimate Deletion,” one of the most bizarre works of avant garde art WWE has ever broadcasted on cable television. With one part wrestling, two parts made for television sci-fi picture and a hearty sprinkling of student film project thrown in for good measure, this is the creation of WWE superstar Matt Hardy.
At its height, the “Attitude Era,” which spanned from 1997 to 2002, Matt and Jeff Hardy were two of the most prominent tag-team stars in the world of professional wrestling. The duo broke onto the scene in their early twenties and went on to achieve enormous success, with Jeff widely regarded as the more gifted superstar, while Matt was widely regarded as having far more charm. WWE separated the duo in order for them to have more success as singles, and Jeff rose up the ranks to capture the WWE championship, while Matt remained in the mid-tier, never really being able to break out on his own.
Fast-forward to 2016.
The Hardys have wrestled for a number of independent organizations throughout the years, but they have found re-emergence in TNA, a competitor to WWE. As a result of terrible talent management mistakes and a dearth of decent writing, the brand was on its way down, prompting TNA to empower its superstars to take calculated risks in order to save the brand. Matt and Jeff were both working for TNA at the time, and they were embroiled in a rivalry with one another when they participated in a “I Quit” match, with the loser being fired from the business.
Broken Matt Hardy.
It was here that the events that would lead to WWE’s “Ultimate Deletion” began to unfold. Matt came to the ring in TNA with his hair blown out and a shock of bleach sprayed through it, and he immediately began speaking in an affable British accent. The only name he would use to refer to Jeff was “Brother Nero,” which was his real-life middle name — and he described himself as a “Broken Man” who was obsessed with “deleting” his brother. The creation of the “Broken Matt” figure provided a chance to reimagine the brothers, who had been lost without a sense of identity for years.
As a result, TNA began seeing its greatest ratings in years, as people tuned in to see what type of craziness “Broken Matt” would bring to the table.
Hardy fight that has garnered more than 1.5 million views on YouTube to date. The “Broken” idea received much praise, with the character’s outrageous antics earning him the title of “greatest gimmick” from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter in 2016.
WWE return and legal feud.
Matt and Jeff Hardy made their comeback to the WWE as a tag team at Wrestlemania 33 in 2017, however they were no longer wearing their “Broken” masks. A battle raged behind the scenes between TNA and its former workers, with the business’s parent company, Anthem SportsEntertainment, mailing Matt a cease-and-desist letter claiming ownership of the gimmick. As a result, the Hardys began competing in WWE, just like they had done during the Attitude Era. The majority of fans were aware of what was going on outside the ring and were willing to shout “DELETE” during their matches, which was a homage to the “Broken” gimmick, during their matches.
“Woken” Matt Hardy.
Toward the end of November, Hardy began a feud with Bray Wyatt, the WWE’s other major supernatural talent. Wyatt is a rural cult leader who possesses strange ghost powers, but that’s another story entirely. In the aftermath of losing a bout against Wyatt, Hardy sat in one of the corners of the ring and chanted “DELETE,” before reappearing the next week and claiming he had “woken up” and imposing “deletion” on Wyatt. Following a series of back-and-forth promotions, the two were scheduled to meet at The Hardy Compound, where “The Final Deletion” had been filmed two years earlier for WWE’s own over-the-top rendition of the match.
So what actually happened during the “The Ultimate Deletion?”
Fans had been waiting two years for this moment, and it finally arrived: Hardy was given the opportunity to perform what he does best. Fans have laughed at WWE’s attempts in the past to film an outdoor bout with steady cameras because the company took the notion too seriously, and as a result, they have mocked the company’s efforts. Despite the silliness of the situation, “The Ultimate Deletion” made use of dramatic music, lengthy anime-style speeches, and even a pyrotechnics attack fired by Hardy’s trusty drone, “Vanguard 1.” There was even a pursuit sequence that was reminiscent of Benny Hill, since that is what Hardy is all about.
At this point, all I need to do is show you some clips because my words will fall short of conveying the full story.
Why do people love this so much?
“The Ultimate Deletion” represents the pinnacle of professional wrestling. Wrestling is at its best when things burst through the fourth wall to the point of being realistically serious, or when things go totally the other way and embrace the silliness of the sport. Nobody believes this was a major incident. The fact is that nobody thought this was even remotely feasible — yet it’s WWE navigating into the curve in a manner that they seldom do. Hardy and Wyatt were the only ones who could have pulled this off in 2018.
“The Ultimate Deletion” was a self-aware, entertaining, and wonderful piece of work.
They now have a canonical justification for re-inventing him.
Rather of dismissing fans’ suggestions, they went with an idea that people already liked and let Hardy run wild with his “woken” scene. It was just stunning.
What are the “Delete” Chants and Broken Gimmick of The Hardy Boyz all about?
During WrestleMania 33, the Hardy Boyz made an emotional comeback to the WWE, and the whole WWE Universe went completely insane. It’s an incredible sight to watch Matt and Jeff Hardy back in action in the world’s most prestigious wrestling organization. It’s exactly like the good old days. However, not everything has returned to its previous state. With only a cursory glance at your television, you will see that Matt Hardy appears to have a white streak in his hair, and if you listen intently, you will hear audiences chanting “the world is ending.” “”Delete” is repeated over and over.
When things become a little confusing, I’m here to clear the air and help you make sense of what’s going on.
The breaking of Matt Hardy
A group of unknown impostors began assaulting Jeff Hardy early last year, while The Hardy Boyz were still working for TNA and The Hardy Boyz were still on the road. However, there was something quite unusual about the oldest Hardy brother, who identified himself as the mastermind of the assaults in May 2016. Jeff dubbed Matt “Brother Nero,” which is really the younger Hardy’s middle name – Nero is actually the younger Hardy’s middle name – and kept referring to himself as “Broken.” Matt also had a white streak in his black hair and talked with an odd accent.
Eventually, the two brothers would get embroiled in one of the most bizarre family feuds in recent memory, which ended in something known as “The Final Deletion.” As you might assume, here is the location where the entire Delete enterprise got its start.
Delete, Delete, Delete
Matt Hardy had a disagreement with his younger brother Jeff, and he made a promise to Brother Nero that he would “Delete” him off the face of the earth. How would he go about doing this? Of course, this is accomplished through the use of The Final Deletion. The Final Deletion was, to put it mildly, an odd battle in which the two brothers fought each other in a manufactured, over-the-top fight at “The Hardy Family Compound,” which was set up by the WWE. The stakes were high since the loser would lose the right to use the Hardy name in the future.
As if to prove his mettle, Matt emerged victorious in a contest that included fireworks, dirt mounds, and cranes.
While this ridiculous conflict was going on, the Broken gimmick began to acquire enormous popularity.
This was accomplished through his unwavering dedication to the gimmick – Matt completely and utterly refused to break kayfabe – and a face turn for himself.
It grew in popularity to the point that it permeated every part of the wrestling industry. It grew to such an extent that it changed its name from Broken Matt Hardy to the Broken Hardyz.
The Broken brothers
The brothers were able to take over the indy scene as a result of this tremendous spike in popularity. A lot of wrestling promoters across the world saw them compete – either together or with Matt Hardy alone – and they were always met with enormous enthusiasm and success. Things were going so well for the brothers that they decided not to renew their contract with TNA, opting instead to look for bigger chances. A very successful tag team, The Young Bucks, took notice of them, and they went on to have several fantastic battles with the brothers from Bullet Club, finally capturing the Ring of Honor Tag Team Championships.
Impact Wrestling, their former home, launched a lawsuit to claim legal ownership of the Broken gimmick, assuring that for the first time in a year, we would be seeing a non-broken Matt Hardy on the big screen.
The legal battle and the return home
EVER EVER The Hardy Boyz departed TNA, the two organizations have been at odds with one another, and it appears like a lengthy, drawn-out war for the gimmick is on the future for both organizations. The fact that Matt Hardy deserves to own the gimmick that made him famous is undeniable, but we will have to wait and see how the situation unfolds in the end. Although this is the case, The Hardyz have achieved tremendous success over the previous year, culminating in their return to the United States when they won the WWE Rag Team Championship at Wrestlemania 33 in a Fatal Fourway Ladder Match.
What the future holds
EVER since The Hardy Boyz departed TNA, the two organizations have been at odds with one another, and it appears like a lengthy, drawn-out war for the gimmick is on the future for both. The fact that Matt Hardy deserves to own the gimmick that made him famous is undeniable, but we will have to wait and watch how the situation unfolds in the meantime.

After Hardys’ Triumphant Return Match At Wrestlemania Last Night, WWE Cut DELETE Chant From Live Broadcast
The Hardys made their triumphant comeback to the WWE last night at Wrestlemania 33, joining the Raw Tag Team Championship ladder fight as a surprise addition to the event, much to the delight of the audience. And they soon demonstrated that they are still at the top of their game by defeating three other teams to win the championships in their first match back, and on the greatest stage of them all, at the Ultimate Thrill Ride in Orlando, Florida (TM). While celebrating in the ring, Matt and Jeff began to make the DELETE symbol with their arms, igniting a DELETE chant in the audience, however WWE cut away to replays of the bout and muted the sound.
The Hardys are now involved in a legal battle with their previous employer TNA Wrestling over the usage of their Broken gimmick, and WWE made certain that the Hardys did not display the gimmick on their program, save for a millisecond of the DELETE arm gesture.
A backstage interview with Matt and Jeff Hardy that took place prior to the event was posted on WWE’s website later that evening.

It was originally predicted that a hero would emerge during the comic book industry’s darkest days to guide the populace through a plague of pricey floppies, incentive variant covers, one-issue reboots, and super-mega crossover events. Unfortunately, such prophecy proved to be incorrect. Jude Terror was absolutely correct. For a period of ten years. Regarding everything and everything. Nobody, however, paid attention.

WWE Twitter Account Asks Fans To Stop Doing The “WHAT” Chant
“Stone Cold”Steve Austin, future WWE Hall of Famer and future wrestling icon, found upon the world’s most convenient way to be irritating back in 2001. “What?” is a single, monosyllabic word that may be given in the middle of an adversary’s statement, and it can be used to be douchey, dismissive, and rude by everyone’s favorite heel in the game. It is that final one, some twenty years later, that is attracting the most attention. Fans, on the other hand, seized on the straightforward reaction and have been employing it ever since to express their dissatisfaction or discontent with a character or their current plot line.
- Of course, when Austin pulled the stunt, he had every intention of making a fool of himself.
- WWE executives, on the other hand, believe it is disrespectful to their talent since fans continue to use it to reject what they don’t like.
- (They have since been removed, so feel free to interpret that anyway you wish.) This was the first message, which was posted during a RAW segment in which Jerry Lawler was interviewing Rusev, and it read: “Can we put an end to the shouts of ‘WHAT?'” It is no longer the year 2001.
- The chant was directed towards @AngeloDawkins as he bid farewell to @WWENXT, then it was directed at a “Hall Of Famer” on RAW.
- “And now we’re back to RAW.” Despite the fact that the brass made their opinions known, it is unlikely that it will have much of an impact on the audience.
- When it comes to live crowds, it’s like a sea of marks and smarks, and they take pleasure in their collective trolling.
- Recently, he told Busted Open Radio, “I did it as a running heel at the time, you know, I was wearing heels at the time, and I left that message on Christian’s voicemail.” It seemed like every time I said something, I’d pause and think, ‘what?
- You’re right, aren’t you?
- Isn’t it true that I’m jabbing you?
- So that was my first attempt at putting it to good use.
- A huge part of being in WWE or in the wrestling business is that the audience wants to be involved, whether they are rooting for you or against you, applauding for you or booing you, or whatever.
As a part of the show, it provided an opportunity for them to become involved and contribute.” In the meantime, they’re still taking part and saying things like ‘Austin, why in the heck did you invent that, I wish you hadn’t done that’.” I would have never imagined it in a million years that…
“I wouldn’t have predicted…” Do you believe that the chanting are insulting to the wrestlers and their efforts? Or is it merely a harmless show of support from the crowd? Please share your opinions in the comments section!
A beginner’s guide to ‘Broken’ Matt Hardy
The following are some topics that we should definitely address in terms of Matt Hardy, best known as the man who came up with the greatest gimmick in the history of pro wrestling, before we begin this AMAZING exercise. Let me start by stating that the journey you’re about to embark on with me will be unusual, strange, confused, mind-boggling, funny, and completely DELIGHTFUL. (I’ll go into more detail about why adjectives are capitalized throughout this document later.) I know you heard me say that Matt Hardy will be joining the WWE roster very soon, and I’m sure you did as well.
- He and his brother Jeff are the reigning RAW Tag Team Champions!” First and foremost, you have the audacity to address him as Jeff!
- It is he who goes by the name of Brother Nero, and he has forfeited his claim to the Hardy surname.
- They aren’t genuine at all.
- Following the conclusion of a recent litigation with a specific owl, the Hardy Boyz will be released into the public domain…
- are the most talked-about thing in professional wrestling right now.
- Is it possible that you’ve been watching WWE programming and wondered why the fans are yelling “Delete!
- DELETE!” recently?
Broken Matt Hardy has the appearance of a skunk living on his head, with the world’s largest dust bunny perched on his skull to give him a haircut. The use of black and grey bread gives Matt the appearance of being the most mad guy on the earth, and if you observe him, you’re likely to believe him to be the case. He’s now sporting the clean-shaven, slicked-back style that he sported before assuming the identity of The Broken One. That will most likely change in the near future because it must.
(You’ll find out more about him in a moment.) Take a look at how joyful he appears.
Every time Broken Matt Hardy talks, it’s as if you’re witnessing the worst possible episode of a Pirates of the Caribbean film, which is incredible. Broken Matt’s vocabulary includes words such as “SENSATIONAL,” “EXQUISITE,” “WONDERFUL,” “MAGNIFICENT,” “DELIGHTFUL,” and “SPLENDID.” Broken Matt’s vocabulary also includes words such as “MAGNIFICENT,” “MAGNIFICENT,” “DELIGHTFUL,” and “SPLENDID.” He also sees visions of future events that will occur, which he refers to as “PREMONEEEEETIONS,” as Matt puts it.
- He exclaims “YEEEEEEEESSS” and it is really WONDERFUL to listen to.
- He will consume you, and then he will obliterate your existence.
- Just ask the aforementioned Bucks of Youth.
- (OBSOLETE!) Broken Matt is essentially a 16th-century madman from England who has been transported to the year 2017 and who speaks with an African accent at some points.
Additionally, he does not address Vince McMahon by his given name. It’s not “Vince,” “Mr. McMahon,” or “Vinny Mac,” as you might expect. It’s pronounced “MEEKMAHAN.” It was amusing because I honestly believed he was going to devour Ethan Carter III’s cats when he once stated he would.
- Matt Hardy’s brother, Jeff Hardy (a.k.a. “Brother Nero”), plays the role of Brother Nero. Matt and Jeff Hardy had one of the finest feuds in the history of Impact Wrestling during their most recent run in the promotion because… well, Matt became a broken man and Jeff became Brother Nero during their most recent run in the promotion. (There’s also Itchweeed, but that’s not really essential.) Just read this article about Jeff’s second gimmick and how bizarre it is.) The two had a long-running feud in which Jeff was able to gain the upper hand on Matt, which eventually led to Broken Matt, but in their final encounter — “The Final Deletion” — Matt triumphed over Jeff and Jeff was no longer allowed to use the Hardy name
- This is the reason why Jeff is referred to as Brother Nero.
- Reby Hardy (Queen Rebecca, Matt’s wife) – Reby Hardy (Queen Rebecca, Matt’s wife) – Reby Hardy is one of the most amazing women that has ever lived. Not only did she have the finest tweet of WrestleMania 33, but she’s also embraced Matt’s BROKEN character, and she’s even worn the look herself. She’s a DREAM COME TRUE. Reby, the mother of King Maxel, has risen to prominence in the wrestling community as a result of her recent Twitter outburst on the current lawsuit between Impact Wrestling and the Hardy Boyz over their gimmick
- Reby is also the mother of King Maxel.
You may find the full text of the rant below. There is some NSFW language in the game, which makes it even more enjoyable.
- Here’s where you’ll find the rest of my rant: There is some NSFW language in the game, which makes it even more enjoyable to play.
- Senor Benjamin (Reby’s father) – Senor Benjamin is the world’s greatest gardener, and he is also Reby’s father. Look at all of the designs from the Hardy portions, don’t you think? Senor Benjamin is really fantastic. Senor Benjamin, the father of Queen Rebecca, will quickly rise to the top of your list of favorite people who do not wrestle.
House Hardy enemies abducted Senor Benjamin when they were engaged in a battle with the highly regarded group DECAY in Impact Wrestling. Vanguard 1 (more on him later) was successful in locating Reby’s father, and war was declared. So important is Senor Benjamin to the Hardys that they have named him after him.
- Matt’s drone, Vanguard 1, is going to be your favorite non-wrestling character, and Senor Benjamin is going to be your favorite non-wrestling character of all time. He’s Matt’s dependable drone, and he can be found almost everywhere. It even attempted to wrestle with me at one point.
- Matthews’ deteriorating boat, Skarsguard, was the only thing that kept him alive during The Final Deletion between he and Brother Nero. A structure or thing that has fallen into decay or ruin as the consequence of age or neglect is known as “dilapidated” (also “dilapidated” or “dilapidated”). You’ve just gained some knowledge.)
The Lake of Reincarnation is a pond on the Hardy Compound that is responsible for returning things to their appropriate place on Earth. Except for the one occasion when The Hurricane morphed into this. OH MY GOD, NO, NO, NO. We were fortunate in that the Lake of Reincarnation decided to stop playing games with us and assisted us in achieving the moment of the year in pro wrestling in 2016 during Tag Team Apocalypto at Total Nonstop Deletion.
- Scribe – Yes, it’s a broken record. Matt is assisted by a writer. He never says anything but meticulously records everything that Hardy observes in his PREMONEEEEETIONS.
- The seeds had already been laid prior to their match at Impact Wrestling’sSlammiversaryin 2016 (which took place around the same time Matt began to becomeBROKEN). For the most part, this was the first time we got a good look at Matt Hardy’s Broken Matt Hardy character.
- Following Jeff’s victory at Slammiversary, a rematch was scheduled for an Impact Wrestling taping and a Six Sides of Steel match on the following night. Despite his efforts, Matt continued to sink further and deeper into the shattered area.
- We’ve talked briefly about The Final Deletion, which is the point at which Jeff Hardy fully became into Brother Nero. It was one of the most talked-about episodes of wrestling in 2016, and the sheer craziness of it all contributed to its success. For those of you who missed it when we talked about it, you may catch up by watching it here. In reality, you don’t have a choice. You must watch it immediately or you will be deleted.)
- In the episode Delete or Decay, Broken Matt and Brother Nero were forced to go to war with DECAY in their own personal struggle. “The Great War,” as Matt named it (which, despite the fact that it ended a month after this frenzy, was a magnificent piece of television)
Why you’re going to love Broken Matt Hardy
With this gimmick, Matt Hardy has sparked one of the most talked-about subjects in professional wrestling history. What it is, in essence, is a psychologically deranged man doing entertaining scenes, and guess what? It is really popular. What is it about it that people adore? For the simple reason that it is unique. Wrestling fans are drawn to the unusual. It’s a lot of fun. Wrestling fans like having a good time. It’s so ridiculously foolish that it’s incredible. What wrestling fan doesn’t enjoy the combination of silly and amazing?
This gimmick was created by Matt and Jeff Hardy for Impact Wrestling, but it has since been seen all over the world in the last year.
After returning to WWE ahead to WrestleMania 33, Matt made certain that he was able to recognize all of his independent scene performances.
(He is, in fact, a vessel.) (This is not a person.) In the hopes that, after Reby Hardy gives birth to the second heir to theBROKEN throneand purchases an actual owl for the family as another trolljob against TNA, while Matt regains his accent once more, this lawsuit will be rendered OBSOLETE, and Broken Matt Hardy and Brother Nero will enter the WWE Universe prepared to DELETE.

- With this gimmick, Matt Hardy has sparked one of the most talked-about subjects in professional wrestling. A mentally crazy man does entertaining routines, and guess what? It’s all true.

In Ring of Honor, they’ve competed against The Young Bucks, who are indisputably the finest tag team in the world. They’ve won both matches. After returning to WWE ahead to WrestleMania 33, Matt made certain that he was able to commemorate all of his independent scene performances as well. Even though the litigation between Impact Wrestling/Anthem Sports Entertainment (the business with the idiotic owl that Reby Hardy ordered to F off) and WWE is still continuing, the moment has come for Broken Matt to step into the role that he was meant to play. Is he a vessel, you ask? There is no such creature.)

- It took place earlier in 2011, before Jeff was sentenced to prison time. Jeff came up to a TNA pay-per-view title bout against Sting while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- He staggered to the ring as the announcers attempted to make excuses for him by claiming that he was playing mind games. In the end, Sting was compelled to actually pin Jeff (you can see Jeff try to kick out of the pinned position as Sting tightens the belt) in order to avert the train catastrophe. TNA severed connections with Jeff as a result of the incident.
- Prior to Jeff’s imprisonment, this incident occurred earlier in 2011. He limped into the ring for his championship defense against Sting at a TNA pay-per-view event as the announcers tried their best to discredit him by claiming that he was playing mind games with the crowd. The train disaster came to a screeching halt when Sting was compelled to really pin Jeff (you can see Jeff struggle to kick out, for real, as Sting tightens his grip on him). The following day, TNA severed relations with Jeff.
- He experienced many of the same difficulties as Jeff, but in a more private setting. After wrestling for a short period of time with TNA’s premier villain team, Immortal, Matt followed in Jeff’s footsteps and joined the business in 2011. TNA, on the other hand, would later suspend Matt before releasing him months later when he was caught for driving under the influence. It took a succession of humiliating encounters with the authorities, legal difficulties, and rehab stays before things started to improve. The last few years have seen Matt wrestle in Ring of Honor in 2012 and then TNA the following year, where he finished his return tour by capturing the TNA World Heavyweight Championship in April of 2015. Twice. To summarize: It has been a difficult path, but the brothers are in a lot better physical and mental state than they were before. Both of them are married and have children. And, now that they’re back in the WWE, they’ll most certainly complete their respective careers as seasoned veterans. It’s a nice conclusion, especially when you consider where things were heading not too long before.
- That began in the year 2016. Matt and Jeff engaged in a “I Quit” battle against each other (which a wrestler can only win by getting his opponent to say “I quit”). It came to an end when Jeff drove Matt into a table outside of the ring, ending the match. But this was no ordinary Swanton Bomb. This was something special. Jeff beat Matt so hard that he was “broken” as a result. A message from the Seven Deities was sent to Matt, who was informed that his soul had been handed down through the millennia from human “vessel” to human “vessel” for thousands of years. Matt rekindled his fraternal rivalry with Jeff, referring to him as “Brother Nero” in the process. Matt Hardy was now known as “Broken” Matt Hardy. he talked with an unmistakable accent that made him sound like an American mimicking a Brit impersonating Derek Zoolander, which was hilarious. He wore odd historical attire that had been recolored and was fastened together with clasps and buckles. And in his promotional videos, he rambled on about a weird assortment of mysticism and philosophy. The Hardys progressed their tale through a series of bizarre, gonzo, so-bad-it’s-awesome pre-taped bits that were incredibly entertaining. There was this video, which showed Matt and Jeff signing a contract to fight at TNA’s Slammiversary, and then there was this video. The Hardys then outdid themselves with “The Final Deletion,” which is a novella. It was filmed in Matt and Jeff’s homes, and it included tree-diving, fire, and a slew of pyrotechnics, which were hurled at each other by the guys using Roman candles as launchers. Matt’s face was holo-projected onto a drone, and Jeff was riding a dirt bike to chase after the drone, among other things, in the episode. It also starred Matt, who, by the way, you know what? Just have a look at the video. It’s the kind of thing that has to be seen to be believed
- It’s a sight to behold.
- If you’re interested in seeing more, there are actually two sequels to this film. Neither of the Hardys is a very gifted performer on the stage. The special effects are very horrible. Nonetheless, there’s a true low-budget B-movie appeal to everything about it. It’s good in the same sense that Ed Wood movies are good in an ironic way. Similarly to Ed Wood’s characters, the Broken Hardys are so aggressively campy and, most importantly, enthusiastic about their attempts that the audience becomes swept up in their excitement as well. It is contagious to have a good time. Wrestling fans are well aware that what they are witnessing isn’t genuine, but they expect that the performers put their all into what they are doing
- There is where the true realness can be found.

Similarly to Ed Wood’s characters, the Broken Hardys are so aggressively campy and, most importantly, earnest about their attempts that the audience becomes caught up in their excitement as a result. It is contagious to have a good time! WWE fans are aware that what they are viewing is not genuine, but they expect that the performers put their all into what they are doing

- Yes. Jeff eventually began referring to himself as Brother Nero and exhibited behaviors associated with “brokenness” as a result of Matt’s encouragement and perseverance. He dropped his voice to the level of a beastly snarl. He burst out laughing like a lunatic. He began to use white contact lenses as a result of this. Jeff’s decision to throw himself through a table, in order to make a point, was the moment when he totally surrendered to his brother’s corrupting influence. The brothers went on to win the TNA World Tag Team Championships a few months later. The Broken Hardys were the most popular act in a business that was otherwise in financial trouble. Jeff was 39 years old, and Matt was 42 years old. These were hardly young men. Together with their risk-taking approach and their crammed schedule—the Hardys performed many indie gigs during their recent Expedition of Gold tour, including appearances with NWA Mid-Atlantic, OMEGA, ROH, and others—the Hardys’ late-career resurrection was all the more astonishing. Meanwhile, the brothers made fun of wrestlers from other firms, including the WWE, on social media. Among those that were invited to Total Nonstop Deletion were the “Man with Three H’s” (Triple H), “The Kid Who Breaks Hearts” (Shawn Michaels), “The Day of New” (The New Day), “The Family of Wyatts” (The Wyatt Family), and “The Day of New.” Bray Wyatt really answered, which piqued the interest of fans who were hoping for a Hardy/WWE reunion in the future. And when the WWE eventually came knocking, the Hardys were there to answer the call. Their Expedition of Gold came to a close when the brothers captured the Raw tag team championships at WrestleMania 33, which was the ultimate gold.
- Yes. Jeff eventually came to identify to himself as Brother Nero and adopted “broken” qualities as a result of Matt’s encouragement and perseverance. A beastial snarl could be heard in the background of his speech. With crazy cackles, he enthralled the audience. The white contact lenses he was previously wearing were removed. Jeff’s decision to throw himself through a table, in order to make a point, was the point at which he entirely surrendered to his brother’s degrading influence. The brothers went on to win the TNA World Tag Team Championships a few months after. While performing for a failing business, The Broken Hardys were the most well-liked act on the bill. Furthermore, they were hardly youthful gentlemen—Jeff was 39 years old and Matt was 42 years old. Together with their risk-taking approach and their crammed schedule—the Hardys performed many indie gigs during their recent Expedition of Gold tour, including appearances with NWA Mid-Atlantic, OMEGA, ROH, and others—the Hardys’ late-career resurrection was all the more stunning. The brothers also made fun of wrestlers from other organizations, including WWE, when they were on the road. Among those that were invited to Total Nonstop Deletion were the “Man with Three H’s” (Triple H), “The Kid Who Breaks Hearts” (Shawn Michaels), “The New Day” (The New Day), and “The Family of Wyatts” (The Wyatt Family). As a result of Bray Wyatt’s response, fans’ dreams for a future Hardy/WWE reunion were re-awakened. As it turned out, the Hardys were ready when WWE called. When the brothers captured the Raw tag team championships—the ultimate gold—at WrestleMania 33, they had completed their Expedition of Gold.
- At this point, practically everything Matt and Jeff do is a meme, but these are the most important ones to bear in mind when watching them. When challenged with an adversary, Matt Hardy’s standard response is “I knew you’d come!” accompanied by a twirling of his moustache. Matt shelters behind a boat to avoid being struck by pyrotechnics in the film “Final Deletion,” and the term “dilapidated boat” alludes to a particularly poor line reading in that film. This Lake of Reincarnation is located on the Hardy property and acts similarly to Ra’s al Ghul’s Lazarus Pit in terms of functionality. It has the ability to cure wounded wrestlers and switch a wrestler’s gimmick in a moment. Oh, and everyone in Matt’s family has been duped by the ruse as well. Matt’s wife, wrestler Reby Sky, takes part in the pre-taped sequences, and she also serves as an escort for the brothers when they enter the ring. Matt’s two-year-old kid is known as King Maxel. Senor Benjamin, Matt’s gardener, caregiver, and taser wielding, is played by Reby’s real-life father, who “prepares the battlefield for carnage.” Senor Benjamin is played by Reby’s real-life father. And Vanguard 1 is Matt’s intelligent flying drone, which can carry holographic messages and shoot rockets, among other things. He also has the ability to transport humans. To put it simply, he is whatever the story requires him to be.
- Image courtesy of YouTube Yes, but it is not inexpensive, and it does not cast holograms or transfer people.
- Anthem Sport, the sports and entertainment business that purchased TNA, asserted ownership of the gimmick’s intellectual property rights in a statement. As a result, Reby and Anthem have been involved in a protracted, one-sided Twitter battle. In addition, her parting shot, “F-k that owl” (Anthem’s emblem is an owl), has become something of a viral meme (warning: link contains NSFW language). According to Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio (through Jigmey Bhutia of the International Business Times, via Yahoo), WWE is attempting to reach an agreement with the Hardys to allow them to continue to employ the persona in the ring. Meltzer stated that the organization prefers to write a check to Anthem for a one-time lump payment rather than continuing to pay Anthem royalties and merchandising deals on a monthly basis. In the meanwhile, Matt Hardy is teasing fans with Easter eggs hidden throughout the film. He’s preserved the blonde stripe in his hair throughout the years. The arm swipe gesture is being made by him, despite the fact that the cameras are attempting to avoid it (though they don’t appear to be trying too hard). Matt was in full broken mode at a recent House of Hardcore indie performance, which took place in a warehouse. Fans can presume that discussions are still underway as long as he continues to act in this manner. Whether or whether WWE is successful in prying Anthem’s gimmick from his claws and the Hardys subsequently go completely berserk, it will mark a fundamental shift in the organization’s philosophy. Vince McMahon is well-known for being reluctant to allow performers to maintain gimmicks that are not associated with WWE. As previously stated, he is the same individual that sought to transform Vader, a former WCW world champion, into The Mastodon (warning: link contains NSFW language). And, according to Billi Bhatti for Sportsskeeda, Vince was not a fan of the Broken Hardys when they first came out. However, after witnessing the raucous reception they received at WrestleMania 33, he changed his mind. Is it possible that WWE will modify what is successful rather than completely scrapping everything? Another concern is whether the Hardys will be allowed to run with the gimmick in its full goofy splendor or whether the company will take a harder hand and make the Broken Universe into a high-budget production with a sleek look and feel. In fact, the last time WWE attempted to put its own take on the Hardys’ shattered brilliance, things didn’t work out so well for the company. In any case, WWE Creative must ensure that the Hardys are kept informed and involved throughout the process. It was their excitement and dedication that enabled this seemingly impossible trick to be successful in the first place. Its high-camp atmosphere contributes to its attractiveness. Another thing to consider is that many fans do not wish to live in a Broken Universe where Senor Benjamin does not exist.
UK WWE Fans Remove Shoes For Interesting Chant During Title Match (Video)
The WWE crowds in the United Kingdom are among of the most entertaining that the professional wrestling industry has to offer, according to the company. During the WWE’s UK Championship Tournament tapings this week, they surely demonstrated that they were correct. The chant first appeared during the WWE United Kingdom Championship bout between Zack Gibson and Pete Dunne. “If you despise Gibson, take your shoes off!” yelled many in attendance as they removed their shoes. Dahlia Black, a PROGRESS analyst and wrestler, is credited with inventing the cry, which is worth noting.

10Matt Created The Final Deletion Concept on His Own
Matt Hardy’s inventiveness allowed him to experiment with a kind of character that most wrestlers would shudder at the thought of attempting. Because of the lack of momentum for TNA at the time, Hardy decided to take a more risk in the hopes of attracting people back to the program and giving it another opportunity. The ensuing rivalry between Matt and Jeff resulted in the creation of the Broken Universe, which saw Matt’s vision come to life. The Final Deletion was the event in which the two brothers faced off in the Hardy estate, and it was the culmination of their rivalry.
9Character Started After Losing Match to Jeff Hardy
The rivalry between the Hardy brothers spawned the plot that gave rise to the character of Broken Matt in the first place. After Jeff won a brutal bout against Matt, Matt suffered an injury that was deemed career-ending, but it wasn’t in the way that people anticipated it to be. The reason was that Matt’s injuries and another defeat against Jeff had finally led him to crack and, as a result, he began to exhibit characteristics of the new persona. Matt developed his persona more with each passing week, eventually becoming one of the most popular acts in all of wrestling.
8Character Debuted Before Official Match
The Broken’s first appearance Although Matt’s character did not appear in the Final Deletion, he had an important role in the development of the game. When Jeff’s elder brother requested another bout at the Hardy estate with less regulations, he met Matt at his residence and demanded an explanation. Fans were perplexed when Matt began speaking with an accent and an intent that was unfamiliar to them.
Despite the fact that they were unaware of what was about to happen, the spectators were eager to see more. How crazy things were going to get going ahead was demonstrated by Matt’s wife Reby Sky tossing a plastic baby doll at Jeff, who mistook it for Matt’s actual child.
7Wife’s Family Made Up Rest of House Hardy
In the Broken Universe, Reby Sky began to appear more frequently with her husband Matt and other members of the family, and her character grew more established. Maxel was the little son of Matt and Reby, who appeared in several parts and was really victorious over Rockstar Spud in one of them. Senor Benjamin was a humorous member of the family who appeared in a number of hilarious scenes throughout the various film matches. Fans were taken aback when they discovered that Benjamin was the real-life father of Reby, further cementing the fact that House Hardy is a family affair.
6Teamed With Jeff Due To Popularity Making Matt Face
Fans grew to adore the Broken Matt persona to the point that they cheered for him at WWE events and on the WWE Network. When Jeff Hardy and Matt faced off on a few occasions, including the Final Deletion cinematic match, Jeff Hardy maintained his face identity. Matt and Brother Nero (Jeff) re-teamed as a consequence of Matt’s resurgent popularity, and they were most notable for their battle against the Abyss, Crazzy Steve, and Rosemary trio during the “DELETE or DECAY” segment. In a face-to-face role, the iconic combo was a hit with the crowd, who applauded their reunion.
The Broken Hardy Boyz quickly rose to become the most popular wrestling act outside of the WWE.
5Was Planned To Have ROH vs TNA Feud With Young Bucks
The Young Bucks and the Young Bucksand Since the two first met in TNA, the Hardy Boyz have formed a strong bond. Both duos were influential enough in their respective organizations that they were able to present the novel notion of them feuding in Ring of Honor and TNA, respectively, throughout the first half of 2017. When Jeff Jarrett regained control of TNA, he immediately changed all of the company’s intentions, including the decision not to negotiate a contract renewal with Matt and Jeff.
During this period, Broken Matt jokingly referred to the duo as “The Bucks of Youth” in reference to their youth.
4TNA Threatened to Sue Hardy Brothers For Using Broken Gimmick in ROH
A group of young Bucks and a group of young women Since the two first met in TNA, the Hardy Boyz have been tight. They were both influential enough in their respective organizations that the unusual notion of them feuding in Ring of Honor and Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) was pitched to both companies during the first half of 2017. When Jeff Jarrett regained control of TNA, he immediately changed all of the company’s intentions, including the decision not to negotiate a contract extension with Matt and Jeff any further.
Broken Matt jokingly referred to the pair as “The Bucks of Youth” at this period.
3WWE Made Them Avoid Obvious References During Debut
The return of Matt and Jeff Hardy to WWE in 2017 culminated in the largest pop in WWE history at WrestleMania 33. In addition to older fans who wanted to see the legends return, there were newer fans who wanted to see their Broken characters appear in WWE, which resulted in the popularity of The Hardy Boyz exploding.
TNA continued to threaten litigation, which forced Matt to abandon his use of the Broken gimmick. While Matt attempted to elicit “Delete” chants as Hardy delivered his mannerisms, the WWE prohibited him from mentioning the phrase directly owing to Jeff Jarrett’s influence in the TNA organization.
2Matt Used It During Feud with Bray
TNA finally relinquished the rights to Matt Hardy’s Broken persona after a series of lawsuits and threats were made against the company. Matt, on the other hand, became “Woken” in WWE, as opposed to “Broken” as he was previously in TNA. When Matt and Jeff were battling with Bray Wyatt, WWE authorized Matt to take on a new role that was different from Jeff’s. Both characters had comparable charms, which led them to believe that Wyatt would be the best candidate to work the filming of the bout with Matt at the Hardy ranch.
Wyatt finally linked up with Matt as the culmination of that angle, but the consequences were disappointing.
1Made It One of Multiple Characters in AEW
The rights to Matt Hardy’s Broken persona were finally obtained when TNA withdrew their legal action and threat to sue or threaten Hardy. Although Matt was “Broken” in TNA, he was “Woken” in WWE, which differed from his previous status as “Broken.” When Matt was battling with Bray Wyatt, WWE enabled him to take on a new role that was independent from Jeff’s. As a result of their shared charms, both characters deemed Wyatt to be the best candidate to work the filming of the bout with Matt at the Hardy estate.
