Eric Bischoff Doesn’t Think “Broken” Matt Hardy Will Fit In WWE

Matt Hardy’s “broken” character has reached amazing popularity, but Eric Bischoff doesn’t think it’d fit in the WWE Universe.

During a recent edition of Bischoff on Wrestling, the former Raw General Manager spoke about the conflicts between the gimmick and what WWE presents on television.

“I don’t think it’s the grittiness of the presentation that’s going to create a conflict between Matt and WWE. I believe it’s the uniqueness. It’s a very, very narrow audience that digs that characterization. I know it’s an important one but WWE plays broad. They play mainstream. They play big box. They are not indie. They are Macy’s. They are not your local corner store. The “Broken” Matt Hardy character . . . it’s got that indie vibe to it. I think that’s where the conflict comes,” Bischoff said.

Since returning to WWE, Matt Hardy has suppressed the characteristics of the gimmick but hasn’t completely eliminated them.

WWE is waiting until any legalities with Impact Wrestling are cleared up before using the gimmick.
