Matt Hardy on cinematic matches in the WWE. The WWE have relied on the format a lot more during the pandemic era.
The WWE usually do not indulge in cinematic matches and even when they did in the past it was mostly mediocre to okay. The Wyatt Compound and the House of horrors come to mind when you think of WWE’s cinematic matches before the pandemic era.
The WWE’s first noticeable success in the genre arguably came during the match between Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt. The match was a marriage between Matt’s creativity and the WWE’s resources and the fans lapped it up.
The WWE have since upped the number of cinematic matches they produce especially during the Pandemic Era. But what does Matt Hardy think of WWE’s production?

“I saw the Boneyard Match,” Matt Hardy told Chris Van Vliet. “I thought it was great. It was done really well. I think it was one of the smartest usages of Taker they had in a long time.
“Bray and I are buddies so I watched the Funhouse Match. I thought it was super interesting. For me, considering the way my mind thinks, I thought it was very cool. I could see how some die-hard wrestling fans could get lost in that as well.
“I thought the bar fight my brother did with Sheamus was awesome, I think wrestling fans should be very appreciative that they are getting these matches like this because we are doing all this during a pandemic era in front of no fans. It’s very hard on us as performers to go out there and work in front of no crowd.”
