• Old School WWF Tag Team Legend Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF Attitude Era Tag Team Legend Matt Hardy (Real name: Matthew Moore Hardy) turns 44 today.
Him and his brother & ‘Hardy Boyz’ Tag Team partner Jeff Hardy joined the World Wrestling Federation in 1994 as Jobbers, putting over the WWF New Generation Era Superstars on the weekly TV shows, such as ‘WWF Superstars’, ‘WWF Wrestling Challenge’ & ‘WWF Monday Night RAW’.
In 1998 during the Attitude Era, they were both promoted to regular main roster Superstars, winning their first ever Tag Team Championship on June 29, 1999.
Apart from winning many more Tag Team titles of various promotions, Matt would also win some singles titles during his long illustrious career, such as the WWF European Championship, the WWF Hardcore Championship, the ECW World Heavyweight Championship (WWE Version), the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, … & many more.
On September 15, 2018, Matt Hardy indicated that he’s going to retire because of an injury, but him being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame is likely not going to happen until his brother Jeff is also retiring from the ring, as they will obviously go in as ‘The Hardy Boyz’.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MATT HARDY!
