If anyone could pull off another complete character makeover in WWE it would be Matt Hardy.
After capturing the SmackDown tag team titles on the Tuesday after WrestleMania 35, Matt was forced to relinquish the titles due to an injury suffered by his brother Jeff Hardy. The knee injury would reportedly keep Jeff sidelined until close to the end of 2019.
While Matt briefly teased a singles run, fans have not heard much from the former Woken One until now. During this week’s episode of SmackDown, Hardy cut his own video promo about leaving the arena early, following seven straight hours of waiting around and doing nothing.

Hardy then responded to some fan speculation about the video.

Apparently this tease began last Sunday when Hardy quietly posted this video with what now may be his signature catchphrase.

Is this just a case of Matt Hardy being bored away from TV? Or is WWE planning to repackage The Broken/Woken One yet again?
