Woken Matt Hardy is now available to download for this year’s WWE 2K18 as his original Matt Hardy character, alongside his brother Jeff Hardy, Beth Pheonix, and the Rock ‘N’ Roll Express.
Woken Matt Hardy spoke with WWE 2K18 for an interview about the game where he discussed what it was like being part of the video game and having a better rating than Bray Wyatt. Below are some highlights from the interview with a h/t/ to 2K18 for the transcriptions.
Being In WWE 2K18
“I’m very excited to return to a WWE video game. I think it is quite an honor to actually be included in the group known as Enduring Icons along with Beth Phoenix and the Express of Rock ‘n’ Roll. So I’m very excited for the WWE Universe to experience this.”
His Rating Being Higher Than Bray Wyatt
“Of course, it should. My video game rating was given before my Woken Wisdom had reemerged from being dormant, because if it wasn’t my rating, it would have to be 140-150% above the normal status quo. But, thankfully for Bray Wyatt, I am listed as my mortal vessel, and I know they scale higher. So, yes. Hopefully, all the video game players who decide to partake in action with me will get the advantage over Bray Wyatt and Sister Abigail.”
Thoughts Of Rock ‘N’ Roll Express
“In another world, on another plane, there was a time where The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express were part of a big tag team tournament I had, which was called Apocalypto. And we actually got to fulfill a bit of a dream match with the Hardys versus The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express in real life on this plane. There was a moment where we had Ricky Morton in almost like a forklift device, affectionately called a cherry picker at that point – which he did not know about. And I lifted him as high as the thing can go, which is 60 feet in the air. Kept him away from his partner Robert Gibson. We left Ricky up there for almost 30 minutes. It was quite the joke. He found it funny a few weeks later.”
