Edge and Christian open today’s show by speaking about ‘Woken’ Matt Hardy’s arrival in WWE. Christian calls Hardy’s development of this character “genius”, and points out that this character is unlike any other thing in WWE right now. He also says that the beauty of a character like this is you can basically do anything you want and get away with it because the character is so crazy.
Edge agrees with Christian’s points and adds that like most people, it took him a while to understand fully what was happening when TNA began teasing this character over a year ago. He quickly realized just how incredible Hardy’s imagination is, and he began to see how spectacular this creation was.
Christian mentions that it’s great to see Matt get his time in the sun as a singles competitor, after Jeff seemed to have the more successful singles run in WWE and TNA over the years. Edge points out that Jeff has the “thing” that very few people have. Matt had to adapt and use his incredible imagination to keep himself relevant and he’s done that time and time again over the last two decades.
