Matt Hardy recently appeared as a guest on the Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast for an in-depth interview. During the interview, Hardy spoke at length about his new “WOKEN” character in WWE. Featured below are some of the highlights.
On WWE fans not fully seeing what he’s capable of yet with his “WOKEN” character: “They haven’t seen anything like it; they’ve only seen a sliver of what they are going to see. One thing that is beneficial is that we do things in a very specific way because the #WOKEN Universe is such a vast, enormous concept.”
On plans for his “WOKEN” universe to expand as time goes on: “The people that do know the backstory before my condition was subdued at WrestleMania 33, before my condition started and the barriers of my mind were #BROKEN, you know everything that was involved in that universe. I think this universe will still come to be, but that there are so many WWE fans are younger children or are primarily WWE fans aren’t aware of #WOKEN Matt Hardy and I think that is a great thing, and as time goes on you can add more and more to the flame and by then they will be able to digest it and understand it over time.”
On being pleased with how things are going so far with the “WOKEN” character: “I am very happy at the amount of fans that do know the backstory of my past, and those that do not I am happy and excited at how they are slowly learning and coming around, and learning and actually embracing it. For a minute there, that obsolete mule Michael Cole thought I was having a breakdown; I wasn’t crazy or having a breakdown, I was actually becoming more of a vessel, more of just a human being. You know that with my backstory, and some of the things that I have done that is absolutely the case.”
