• AEW Wrestler Says His Gimmick Is Inspired By The Undertaker & Papa Shango
While speaking to Chris Van Vliet, AEW wrestler Matt Hardy revealed which legends inspired him to come up with his “Broken” gimmick.
Below is what he said:
“Well, I mean, that’s why the whole ‘Broken’ Matt Hardy character was created in the first place. Because thinking back and looking at the landscape of things, all these young guys that are 25-35 that are in super top shape, super athletic and super healthy in so many ways, and don’t have their body covered with scar tissue like mine is.
When I was thinking about those characters, I said, ‘what if I could do a throwback to the days of Papa Shango? The days of The Undertaker? Trying to create a character that’s somewhat magical, somewhat over the top? And that was the whole mindset.”
