WWE has seen several mismatched tag teams that just seemed to work. RK-Bro is the latest in a long line of tag teams that shouldn’t have worked out as well as they did, and many fans would add Bray Wyatt and Matt Hardy to that list. It turns out that there is an interesting story behind that team, because it was a struggle booking for them.

Bray Wyatt and Matt Hardy were a successful tag team in WWE during their run. They picked up tag team titles as well, but they didn’t last long until Matt Hardy departed from the company.

While speaking on his Oh You Didn’t Know podcast, Road Dogg admitted that the writing team had no idea how to handle Bray Wyatt and Matt Hardy’s characters on screen. They were just too different, and Road Dogg expanded on the issue while taking all the heat.

“We put him [Matt] with Bray because we thought together they could really be this cool entity, but I will say, no, we didn’t know what to do with them. I’ll take the heat, and I always will for a failed opportunity, an opportunity I missed as a writer or a creative guy on the show.”


“We let them be their creative selves and their creative selves, and this is horrible. I don’t mean to say it like this, but I don’t think they knew at that time what they were trying to do. I don’t think they knew, and together, it made a who knew stew.”

Matt Hardy found a new home in AEW, and Bray Wyatt eventually returned to WWE after his release. That being said, it’s doubtful that we will see any more of that tandem. It was still a lot of fun while it lasted, as fans have their own memories of the tag team.

Bray Wyatt had to miss WrestleMania due to a physical issue. Dave Meltzer reported that Wyatt is suffering from an “illness,” but he was allegedly spotted in Burbank before WrestleMania, just driving his car like there was nothing wrong. Ringside News recently confirmed that Wyatt is still not cleared to compete.
