Awesome / Matt Hardy

  • Winning against Edge at Unforgiven 2005 in a Steel Cage match. Culminating in him giving Lita a Twist of Fate and delivering a twenty foot leg drop off the top of the Cage onto Edge to win the match. Unfornuately that would be the only taste of success and revenge he got against them.
  • The BROKEN Matt Hardy gimmick was a bizarre and risky gamble, but seems to have paid off, as Matt's 2016 run is getting by far the most positive buzz TNA has seen in years.
    • An added bonus has to go to Matt for staying in character (though, don't tell him that) in all his press interviews. In an era where kayfabe is all but dead and buried, he's proudly flying his BROKEN flag.
    • Another added bonus is the fact that it highlights Matt Hardy's (broken) brilliance as a wrestler. "Broken" Matt Hardy is an utterly ridiculous concept that wouldn't be out of place with a Tim and Eric sketch...but somehow, amazingly, it WORKS. As Brian Alvarez of Wrestling Observer Radio put it: "He got his gardener over! WWE can't get a main event over and he got his gardener over!"
  • He appears in the awesome in and of itself wrestling themed music video for "Fall To Pieces" by Junior (a band which includes fellow TNA wrestler Mark Andrews) in his "Broken" persona, playing the venue's promoter. His short cameo involves him telling Mark the password the band needs to enter the venue. The password? OBSOLETE!
