Matt Hardy’s ‘honored’ people see his Broken influence on WrestleMania’s Boneyard match

There’s a lot of credit to go around for the success of the main event of WrestleMania 36 Night One.

Undertaker, AJ Styles, Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows, of course. Jeremy Borash and Chris DeJoseph, two WWE producers who have experience working on similar concepts with TNA and Lucha Underground, respectively.

And one person a lot of people shouted out online as an influence is Matt Hardy. Borash and Hardy worked together on much of the Broken/Woken material that some fans see as inspiring Taker & AJ’s Boneyard Match.

The Broken One reacted to the praise:

As mentioned above, there’s plenty of credit to go around - both for hands on work and inspiration. But Matt’s work definitely helped pave the way for widespread acceptance of something like what WWE produced tonight. And considering they didn’t get behind his vision for more of it, I think he’s allowed of a bit of an “I told you so tonight”.
