Most fans though the Ultimate Deletion was WONDERFUL.

What's the story?

Woken Matt Hardy took to Twitter to reply to the great reception the Ultimate Deletion match versus Bray Wyatt received from the WWE fans.

Bubba Ray, who is set to be inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame with D-Von Dudley in two weeks time, did a Twitter poll for Busted Open Radio to see whether fans thought the match was 'WONDERFUL' or 'OBSOLETE'.

And, it looks like the WWE Universe loved the bout as a massive 82% of over 16,000 voters thought it was WONDERFUL.

In case you didn't know...

Back in 2016, Matt Hardy revolutionized the wrestling business when he came up with his 'Broken' gimmick in TNA.

Broken Matt soon became really popular among wrestling fans with his crazy schtick, which ranged from his weird laugh to his strange hair, and of course his Broken Vocabulary/

The coolest part though, was when the idea of a 'Hardy Compound' was developed, and soon Matt would have awesome matches at this intriguing, isolated location that was amazingly put together and saw Hollywood-worthy productions take place.

In TNA they were called The Final Deletion and Total Nonstop Deletion, and soon 'Broken' became the most over thing in professional wrestling because of them.

Fast forward to 2018, with Matt Hardy now back in WWE having returned with his brother Jeff Hardy (Brother Nero in the Hardy Compound) at last year's WrestleMania, and we have finally got to see a Hardy production in WWE.


No one thought we were going to witness one in WWE, especially because people thought it would be something CEO Vince McMahon would dislike, and more so because TNA and Hardy were in a legal battle over The Broken character.

However, with TNA's change of policy meaning that talent could now retain the rights to their character, Matt has been able to become Woken in WWE, and he began a feud with Bray Wyatt back in December

Last week, we saw the first Hardy Compound showing in the WWE when Woken Matt beat Bray Wyatt in an Ultimate Deletion match.

Wyatt was thrown into the Lake of Reincarnation.

The heart of the matter

Woken Matt was happy, or should I say 'aroused', with the poll done by Bubba Ray, saying that the result represented the 'CORE WWE Viewer'.

But, Matt thinks that the 'sanctimonious skeptics' that remain will be turned eventually into 'devoted believers' as his Woken Wisdom and Broken Universe will win them over.

Who's going to argue with the guy? I, an OBSOLETE journalist, will not.

What's next?

It will be interesting to see if Matt Hardy gets to do another Ultimate Deletion production in WWE.

Although there were rumors that Vince McMahon thought the match could be a total disaster, he could only be happy with what transpired and with fans loving it.

Therefore, following this sort of reaction from the WWE Universe, we can almost certainly expect to see another Ultimate Deletion happen on WWE TV again in the future.

It now looks like Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt will join forces to become Woken together.

Author's take

I believe that Woken Matt Hardy could become nearly as big in WWE as Broken Matt Mardy did in TNA after watching last week's Ultimate Deletion.

Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt showcased a fantastic story, and fans seem to have been really taken in by it.

With the charismatic duo possibly now joining forces, and with Jeff Hardy (who see briefly in the Ultimate Deletion) set to return from injury soon, the sky is the limit as to what can be done next.
