‘It’s F***ing Different’: Steve Austin Had Huge Praise For Unique Gimmick

The Broken Universe is a unique creation by Matt Hardy. The character garnered attention from the wrestling world when it first debuted. It even grabbed the attention of Stone Cold Steve Austin, who praised it in his own style.

Hardy revealed his conversation with the wrestling legend on The Extreme Life Of Matt Hardy (H/t WrestlingInc). It was the time after Matt had left Impact Wrestling and he was making appearances for ROH. Steve Austin called him about his legal battle regarding the rights of the gimmick, and he praised the creation as well:

“I got a call from Stone Cold, he said, ’˜hey, what’s going on, man? What’s going on with this deal with the gimmick, are you thinking about taking that to Vince? I love that sh*t, man. It’s f***ing different, and crazy, it’s over like hell.’ He was just so cool about sh*t, the way he was talking.”

Impact Wrestling eventually decided to abandon their claim on the broken gimmick. Matt Hardy brought it to WWE after this, but he failed to replicate the original success of the character. He has teased bringing the character back in AEW. Now that the fans are back in the arenas, it seems the perfect time for the character’s return.
