What’s the story?

In an interview with SPORTbible, Matt Hardy opened up on Jeremy Borash being signed by the WWE.

‘Woken’ Matt asserted his happiness at the longtime TNA (Impact Wrestling) executive signing with the WWE. Besides, Hardy also spoke about how the move would benefit both Borash and WWE.

In case you didn’t know…

Jeremy Borash is a longtime TNA (Impact Wrestling) commentator, ring announcer, booker, producer and backstage executive who is well-known for having played a key role in the promotion’s affairs from 2002 until his departure from the company earlier this year.

On January 30th of this year, the professional wrestling community was set abuzz by news of Borash being signed by the WWE.

The heart of the matter

Over the past few weeks, pro-wrestling industry insiders have revealed that Jeremy Borash is set to play an important backstage role in NXT, and will primarily report to WWE’s Executive Vice President of Talent, Live Events & Creative Paul “Triple H” Levesque.

Matt Hardy, who currently portrays the Woken/Broken gimmick in the WWE, was previously aided by Borash in the production of several Broken Universe segments during their time together in Impact Wrestling. Hardy opened up on Borash signing with the WWE—

"Personally I am very glad that Jeremy Borash is here in WWE…He's got a great mind; a very creative person, a good friend of mine and he just deserves to work here. Coming to the WWE often validates your career in the business and he was kind of the glue that was keeping TNA together in many, many ways over the years. The fact that he's here and actually hired by Triple H, and his role is to be an important part of NXT, I am very happy he's got the opportunity”


Furthermore, Hardy reiterated that an opportunity to work in the WWE is something that Borash is most definitely deserving of.

What’s next?

Matt Hardy’s much-talked-about “Ultimate Deletion Match” against Bray Wyatt is set to air over the next few days, and fans can indeed expect the Woken/Broken storyline to reach a crescendo in the near future.

Besides, several other elements of the Broken Universe, including “Brother Nero” aka Jeff Hardy, are also expected to be introduced to the WWE fans very soon.

Author’s take

Honestly speaking, Matt Hardy and Jeremy Borash ought to be applauded for their work with the Broken gimmick in Impact Wrestling.

The duo succeeded in creating a unique, larger-than-life storyline in a smaller promotion, and now have been accorded the opportunity to present the Woken/Broken Universe in the world’s premier sports-entertainment promotion.

Intriguingly, Borash was indeed involved in the filming of the Ultimate Deletion Match this past Thursday. Now, isn’t that wonderful?
