It looks like we may see the “BROKEN” Hardy gimmick in WWE after all.
Dave Meltzer reported on Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE does plan to use the gimmick, as the company plans to make some sort of financial agreement with Anthem for the rights to the gimmick. This offer will either be a one-time payment or an agreement that pays for a percentage for years moving forward.
Many have noticed that Matt has been weaving in and out of the accent and still doing nods to the gimmick on TV and WWE Live Events. The feeling is that the “attitude era Hardys” has a limited shelf life, and that the BROKEN gimmick has great merchandising potential under WWE.
