• “This is the greatest thing I’ve ever seen in my life” – John Cena After Seeing A TNA Match
In the late 2010s, Matt Hardy got really popular with his BROKEN gimmick in TNA / IMPACT Wrestling.
He had a cinematic match with Jeff Hardy, called ‘The Final Deletion’, which received rave reviews from the fans.
You can watch it below:
On his podcast, Matt revealed that WWE Legend John Cena enjoyed this match too. Below is what he said:
“Oh, boy. It would be fun to do ‘Broken’ Matt with John Cena. He was one of the ones whenever I sent a preview of The Final Deletion to [Chris] Jericho, they were in Japan, and there is a very famous story; Jericho showed it to John Cena, and John said, ‘Oh my God, this is the greatest thing I’ve ever seen in my life.’
They started setting up different times — they were at this venue all day. So they said, like, ‘1:00, 2:30, 4:00, 5:30… These are the showing times, you have to be here on time, and if you show up two seconds late, you don’t come in the room.’ So they showed it throughout the day to the WWE guys, and John Cena watched every viewing of it.
That was one of the first things — he was so happy whenever I showed back up. He’s like, ‘Oh my God! I hope you get to do ‘Broken’ Matt here. I love that.”
