The Hardys Hardy Boys Smackdown 2-26-19

Matt Hardy and Jeff Hardy teamed up for the first time in months on Smackdown last night and were victorious over The Bar. After the show, WWE released a backstage interview with the Hardys. As reported earlier, WWE has activated a clause in the Hardys current deal which rolls it over for another year. The contract was set to expire next month, as the team signed a two-year deal just before WrestleMania 33 in 2017.

In the interview below, Matt Hardy says that he has learned to control “Woken Matt Hardy” and his Broken Brilliance, possibly indicating that he will be putting that gimmick aside while the Hardys chase the Smackdown Tag Team Titles (currently held by the Usos). Check out the full quote below (h/t WrestlingInc). Also below is Matt Hardy’s tweet following the return of the Hardy Boys on Smackdown.

“I think we sent a very specific, special message today,” Matt said. “And basically that is this – myself, Matt Hardy and The Charismatic Enigma, Jeff Hardy, we are the greatest tag team in all of time and space, and we are back together to prove that, without a shadow of a doubt. Myself, I know the last time people saw me I was ‘Woken Matt Hardy’ and well I have learned how to control the Woken Wonder that’s inside of me, the Broken Brilliance inside of me. And together, everyone’s going to learn that myself and my Brother Nero, Jeff Hardy, we’re unstoppable, we’re indestructible, we’re unkillable. The greatest tag team of all time and space!”
