Matt Hardy

Matt Hardy is an American professional wrestler. He is best known for his time in World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE).

Before signing with the World Wrestling Federation, Hardy, with his younger brother Jeff, founded the wrestling organization Organization of Modern Extreme Grappling Arts (OMEGA). In OMEGA, Hardy held many championships including the Heavyweight and Tag Team Championship, which he held alongside Jeff. The promotion folded in October 1999 when the duo signed contracts with the WWF. The Hardys gained notoriety in the company's tag team division due to their participation in Tables, Ladders, and Chairs bouts. As a tag team wrestler, Hardy is a six-time World Tag Team Champion, a one-time WWE Tag Team Champion, and one-time WCW Tag Team Champion. (Continued Below)
