WWE’s WOKEN Matt Hardy

Being a fan of pro wrestling is, in & of itself, one of those things that is difficult to explain to people whom themselves aren’t fans. Then there’s WOKEN Matt Hardy. To try to explain the “character” – or is it ? – to the average non-wrestling fan is like trying to explain bedtime to a toddler; it’s just not going to happen overnight. After all, the mysteries of sleep & awakening elude even the oldest & wisest 😉 Woken Matt Hardy must truly be seen to be understood – scratch that – believed. You may still not understand him when it’s all said & done, but you will surely have left the experience entertained !

I was lucky to be asked to submit an editorial for Power Wrestling Magazine of this WWE Superstar & am excited to share the results of our WOKEN session here with you.

A funny side note about this shoot: When I was looking for the German word for WOKEN, google translate told me it was geweckt. OK, great ! I inserted it into the double page layout spread & went on with editing. Something told me to double check the translation before I finished & I am REALLY glad I did, because upon switching from German back to English, it turns out that geweckt really means AROUSED !
