Awesome / Jeff Hardy
Poetry In Motion
  • The entirety of Jeff's Undisputed Championship ladder match with Undertaker in July 2002. It was an obvious mismatch, but Jeff used his ladder match mastery over Taker (who was entering his first) for all it was worth, coming within INCHES of claiming the belt for himself. Special mentions go to two major moments in the match:
    • Jim Ross' iconic call of "CLIMB THE LADDER, KID! MAKE YOURSELF FAMOUS!!"
    • Jeff's post-match Determinator moment where he gets up after taking a Chokeslam off the top of a ladder, only to receive a Last Ride from Undertaker. Then Jeff gets up from that and screams into the mic in a broken voice, "You haven't broken me, Taker!" Undertaker responded to that... by patting Hardy on the head, raising his arm, and deeming him 'one tough son-of-a-bitch'.
  • 5 words: SWANTON. OFF. THE RAW. TITANTRON. (Even if he missed.)
  • Armageddon 2008: Jeff wins in a Triple Threat match with Triple H and Edge to capture the WWE title that's eluded him for years.
    • In a moment of Laser Guided Karma, he pinned Edge to do it, which probably made the moment a bit better for Matt.
  • In 2008, Jeff interrupted one of the Undertaker's creepy coffin based promos, topped it with his terrifying corpse painted visage, challenged Taker to an Extreme Rules match, and WON said match (even if the Big Show did help a bit). Damn.
  • More awesome for the person doing it, Edge, but receiving a Spear 20-plus feet in the air at Wrestlemania X-7,one of the most iconic moments in an already iconic Wrestlemania.
  • In 2011, climbing back up from total rock bottom, getting clean, growing up and starting a family. A lot of addicts won't even admit they have a problem, but Jeff solved his the first time he actually tried.
  • Wrestlemania 33: In the climax of the Ladder match for the RAW Tag Team titles, Jeff performs a swanton bomb off a 20 foot ladder on Cesaro and Sheamus on top of another ladder. This allows his brother Matt to climb up the ladder and win the titles, giving Jeff his first ever win at Wrestlemania.
    • In addition, Jeff is now the second person to win all eligible titles of the original Grand Slam format (the first being Chris Jericho). Like Jericho, the likelihood of this ever happening again is extremely slim (and in fact may be impossible due to events such as retirement and death removing possible candidates) as the World Heavyweight, original Tag Team, Hardcore, and European titles are no longer active.
    • Another addendum: the Wrestlemania ladder match was the second ladder match in as many nights for the brothers, as they defended—and lost—their Ring of Honor tag titles against the Young Bucks at Supercard of Honor.
