It seems that Matt Hardy is at least thinking about bringing his well-liked Broken act back to television.
After performing the gimmick briefly in 2017, months after making his comeback to the WWE with his brother, Jeff, at WrestleMania 33, where they won the Tag Team Titles, Hardy initially began performing it in Impact Wrestling.
It started out as a deranged version of Matt and gradually changed into a “broken universe” with various supernatural components. Instead of being “Broken,” he was “Woken” in the WWE.
As he made his AEW debut in March 2020 with that gimmick, Hardy had already been Broken. By the end of that year, he had reverted to his “Big Money” monicker despite maintaining that character for a few months.
In a previous interview, AEW President Tony Khan expressed his opinions on the fight, stating that he found some portions of it to be a little overwhelming.
The gimmick might be coming back, though, since Matt appeared to momentarily assume his Broken identity in the most recent Being The Elite episode before the lights went out.

Is Matt Hardy making a return to this gimmick as they have a knowledge that Jeff is not returning?
