Matt Hardy On How 'Woken' Character Is Working In WWE, Biting Heath Slater on RAW; More

Matt Hardy was interviewed by IGN to promote the new WWE 2K18's Enduring Icons DLC. Below are a few highlights:

How it is to be "Woken" and how the character is working out so far in WWE:

"It's been great. Just tremendous. And I'm very excited for this undertaking. It's starting to take hold. I think the hardcore fans have to remember that patience is paramount. There's such a huge percentage of the WWE Universe and the WWE fanbase who aren't familiar with the story of the Woken-slash-Broken character so we have to educate them and get them up to speed and help them understand what's going on. And that's something the die hard fans are frustrated with. But things are going to get where they need to be and this is a process now that's playing out over TV. The biggest thing I'd say to people is just sit back and enjoy this truly truly fun and jubilant ride."

If it was difficult to return to his old persona when he returned to WWE last year:

"Actually it was. It was hard to go back to that because Woken, or Broken, Matt Hardy was ingrained in me. It had become me in so many ways. It was what I was doing and it became my identity so, yes, it was a bit of a challenge. And eventually, after we debuted at WrestleMania, I'd go out night after night and suppress the "Woken-ness" inside me until I touched another magical being - and that was Bray Wyatt and the nefarious Sister Abigail. And that woke up the magic that was lying dormant inside."

- Speaking of Matt Hardy, Matt and Heath Slater had the following Twitter exchange after their match on last night's RAW, which Hardy won. Slater says he wasn't ready for the biting but Hardy says he needed to take Slater's essence and "METABOLIZE it into POWAH." It looks like the biting may be a regular part of "Woken" Matt's repertoire.
