Along with his real-life brother Jeff, Matt gained notoriety in WWF’s tag team division due to the Hardys’ participation in tables, ladders, and chairs matches. As a tag team wrestler, he is a 13-time world tag team champion, having held six WWF/World Tag Team Championships, three WWE/Raw Tag Team Championships, one ROH World Tag Team Championship, one WCW Tag Team Championship and two TNA World Tag Team Championships.

Wrestling in three separate decades, Hardy has managed to keep himself relevant through a variety of different gimmicks, character changes as well as his use of social media. In 2002, Hardy began a solo career in WWE and his subsequent “Version 1” persona was named Best Gimmick by Wrestling Observer Newsletter. Hardy’s eccentric “Broken” gimmick, which he debuted in 2016, earned him multiple awards and praise from wrestling critics, including a second Best Gimmick award (in 2017, the character was renamed “Woken” within WWE). As a singles wrestler, Hardy is a three-time world champion, winning two TNA World Heavyweight Championships and one ECW Championship.
