WWE star Woken Matt Hardy recently appeared on The Mansplaining Podcast, and below are some interview highlights via Uproxx:
WITH SPANDEX: Now, the first question I have for you is that it looks like you have reached an agreement with Anthem and The Owl. Is there anything you can tell us about that?
Matt Hardy: Really the only detail I can go into there is that, you know, we’re, you know, starting with the Woken universe in the WWE, and recently you’ve only seen a sliver of [it]. And you, obviously, being in the know, you know a lot of the backstory about the Woken universe when it was known as the Broken universe, before my CONDEESHUN became subdued at WrestleMania 33, and now it is going through an awakening, and I am Woken.
But this is what I can say: now that everything has been settled and everything has been put behind us, anything is possible in the WWE. And I’m sure you will see most things that you will come to expect in the WWE, and I think you will see even new characters and personas that you haven’t even met or interacted with yet. So, I think it’s a very, very exciting time moving forward.
Matt, what do you think would happen if you were to throw Bray Wyatt into the Lake of Reincarnation?
That’s a very interesting question. I would first be concerned he’s gonna come back as a disgusting “Husky Harris.” That would be my first concern. The second concern, which isn’t as much a concern but would be my hope, is that between myself and the Seven Deities, if we could delete this demon that lives within him, this Sister Abigail, we could dump him in and he could return to the force that he used to be.
Because many, many years ago, Bray Wyatt — the soul that is within him, that is suppressed — was once … was not a bad guy. But this Sister Abigail is the one that has really taken over his vessel and made him into something evil. So, I’m hoping we can get Bray Wyatt to where he needs to be, because he actually could, in the future, potentially be a wonderful soldier of the light. We just have to get rid of this notorious, nefarious Sister Abigail.
