The Great War is finally over. We finally witnessed the highly anticipated Ultimate Deletion segment between Woken Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt with the result going the way many WWE fans predicted.
Fans were reminded just why there was so much excitement surrounding Matt’s return last year, as WWE made sure they went all out to give fans the best experience possible, similar to what we witnessed during the Final Deletion when Matt was part of Impact Wrestling.
This included the familiar character in Queen Rebecca, Skarsgard the dilapidated boat, Vanguard 1 along with Senor Benjamin. Then, there were the all too familiar locations scattered around The Hardy Compound, ranging from the Dilapidated City, the Land of Obsolete Men, the Dome of Deletion along with the Lake of Reincarnation.
The Lake of Reincarnation was perhaps the most intriguing part of it all, as that’s where many expected the match would end and play an integral role in what could follow in this entertaining feud.
After witnessing the return of Jeff Hardy as Brother Nero - who also has history with the Lake of Reincarnation - Matt hit The Eater of Worlds with a Twist of Fate to seal the victory, before throwing him into the Lake of Reincarnation to ensure that he had been deleted.
Now many are wondering what could be next, and Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer has the answers which could be hit and miss with WWE fans. When asked about Wyatt’s status now, he claimed that WWE will now finally be repackaging him and his gimmick with Ringside News providing the quotes.
According to Ringside News, Meltzer said: “So, I guess he’s going to come back different.
“I think it’s been maybe a year of needing repackaging. I don’t know what he’ll do but, hopefully, it’s something completely different because that other character ran its course a long time ago.”
The arrival of Wyatt was met with plenty of excitement as it was something completely different. While he draws plenty of criticism for his downfall, WWE needs to shoulder some of the blame.
This is because his booking has been terrible. In every feud, he’s lost the big matches where it counts the most and it shows he cannot back up the excellent talk; even if it did get slightly repetitive.
This can be stretched right back to WrestleMania XXX where Wyatt lost to John Cena, a contest many believed could have propelled Wyatt to the next level if he had won. Since then, though, he’s never reached the same heights - despite holding the WWE Championship on one occasion.
Now, we have to wait and see what type of character Wyatt will return as. Hopefully, it’s not Husky Harris.
