WWE to Unveil “Broken Matt” Gimmick?


WWE are reportedly planning on using Matt Hardy’s “broken” gimmick, Dave Meltzer reported on the latest Wrestling Observer Radio. WWE is working on a deal with Impact Wrestling to use the character on TV, which isn’t finalized yet.

There is a legal battle currently between Matt Hardy using the “broken” character with Impact Wrestling claiming ownership over the rights to the gimmick.  Impact Wrestling recently added a trademark symbol (™) to videos on their YouTube channel containing references to the ‘Broken’ gimmick, including ‘Broken Matt’, ‘Brother Nero’ and ‘Broken Brilliance’.

We also reported Impact sent a cease and desist letter to pay-per-vies providers airing the ROH 15th Anniversary pay-per-view regarding the gimmick.

As you may have noticed, Hardy has been using some of the mannerisms of his “Broken” character on TV since returning to WWE at WrestleMania 33 earlier this month. His Twitter has also been changing to “#BROKEN”, “#Version1” and “#Mattitude.”.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
