Matt Hardy Did Not Invent The Cinematic Match Style
In recent months, cinematic style matches have become extremely popular. From the Firefly Funhouse & Boneyard match, to One Final Beat and the upcoming Backlot Brawl, and even the Stadium Stampede. With fans not needed for these matches, they would be perfect to break up the madness of empty arena shows. One man has been getting a ton of credit for this style, that being Matt Hardy, The Broken Matt Hardy skits were incredible, and even when WWE took their spin on it with Woken Gimmick it was good. The matches at the Hardy Compound pushed this match style forward a great length, but they didn’t invent them. There was many who did this style before Hardy went mad.
Matt Hardy Did Not Invent Cinematic Matches
While speaking with metro.co.uk about the upcoming NXT Takeover, Triple H would recognize how Matt Hardy impacted this style, but talk on how the history goes far back.
It’s a funny thing, that people say all of a sudden there’s this moment with the cinematic thing that happened. ‘But people were doing that 20 years ago – Rock and Mick Foley, Halftime Heat, Austin and Booker in the grocery store. There’s so many of those things over the years that have happened. Did they do a great job taking that to another level? Absolutely. Jeremy [Boarsh] is an incredible talent with an eye for storytelling and an eye for image and everything like that. Man, I can’t tell you how much I enjoy working with him.
Jeremy Borash Is The Father Of The Modern Cinematic Match
Jeremy Borash is the man who had heavy involvement in both the Broken Universe and the recent cinematic matches in WWE. With the Backlot Brawl between Adam Cole & Velveteen Dream this Sunday, we will likely see his creativity all over it. When he signed with WWE, the news went very much under the radar, but his impact has been bigger than anyone could have imagined. He has more than proven himself useful, and considering what WWE did in the House Of Horrors match? They needed someone with an eye for this style.
