What’s the story?

Professional wrestling legends such as Hulk Hogan, The Iron Sheik & Mick Foley have taken to social media so as to react to “The Ultimate Deletion” matchup.

The highly-awaited match aired on RAW, and has been garnering considerable praise from the pro-wrestling community ever since.

In case you didn’t know…

The Ultimate Deletion Match between “Woken” Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt aired on this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW.

The Hardy family was prominently featured in the entire segment—which was shot at the Hardy Family Compound—with Matt Hardy defeating Wyatt by way of pinfall, and throwing the latter into the Lake of Reincarnation in the end.

The heart of the matter

A performer widely regarded as one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time, Hulk Hogan, chimed in with a rather subtle Tweet regarding The Ultimate Deletion, stating—“I’m deleted. HH”

Furthermore, Mick Foley opened up on the segment, stating—“I HAVE NO IDEA WTF I JUST SAW...BUT I LIKED IT! #FinalDeletion #RAW @MATTHARDYBRAND”

Additionally, The Iron Sheik also praised Matt & Jeff Hardy for the Ultimate Deletion performance, whereas, Gregory Shane Helms aka The Hurricane, recalled how he was indeed the Producer/Agent for the first Hardy Compound Deletion—adding that sometimes you’ve got to let artists create their own art, and he absolutely loved the maniacal match.

Furthermore, The Young Bucks noted that the plan was to have The Ultimate Deletion Match with The Hardys last year, however, it’s great to see the WWE allowing the Hardys to showcase their creativity in WWE.

Meanwhile, Senor Benjamin jested that it’s now time for him to clean up the mess left by the matchup. On the other hand, Queen Rebecca (Reby Hardy) emphasized that her 2nd original piano composition just aired on Monday Night RAW—


What’s next?

Matt Hardy is expected to move on to another feud in the days to come on Monday Night RAW.

The professional wrestling fans & experts alike continue to heap tons of praise on the entire Ultimate Deletion segment put forth on RAW.

Author’s take

Matt Hardy is perhaps one of the most underrated performers and intelligent people in the business today.

Hardy and the WWE have played a masterstroke with the Woken gimmick thus far, and the possibilities of “Woken” Matt colliding with other Obsolete Superstars Mules in the WWE Universe are endless.
