Matt Hardy is known for his role in the Hardy Boyz. The Hardy Boyz, according to many wrestling journalists, are one of the best professional wrestling teams of all time. They were known for taking extreme risks during table, ladders, and chairs matches.

Matt Hardy Talks About His Memories From WrestleMania 35 Where He Returned With His Brother

Matt’s brother, Jeff Hardy, mostly carried the matches. He had a huge arsenal of high-flying moves that made the fans go “Wow!” every time he performed them.

They also had a huge role in the popularity of the TLC format matches. However, the two had to leave the WWE due to various issues. Jeff simply let his contract expire, and wished to join his brother in AEW. Matt left earlier than Jeff.

Jeff had to stay in WWE for a while as he was on the shelf, and WWE could extend his contract to make sure that he performs for them based on how long he had to be placed on the shelf for. Matt has to negotiate a new AEW contract, if he wishes to stay in the company.

That is the reason why Matt’s future in AEW is uncertain. That being said, Matt and Jeff returned to WrestleMania 33 many years ago. Matt spoke to WrestleZone about their unexpected return to the WWE, a company that they were not working for a very long time.

"It was so exhilarating and intoxicating in so many ways," Hardy said. "The legitimacy of the surprise was there in the venue. Like, there were some people speculating we were there, but no one knew we were going to be there.

We already had such an insane weekend already, signing a couple of days at WrestleCon, we worked the Lucha Bros. on Friday night, we wrestled the Young Bucks in a 30 minute ladder match the night before. I don't think a lot of people legitimately thought we were going to show up and be there." Matt Hardy was also surprised when the crowd started chanting ‘Delete’.

The word ‘Delete’ was part of his Broken Matt Hardy gimmick at Impact Wrestling. He didn’t know that fans knew about it. "Whenever I think of that moment, in my mind, it's not a vivid memory like some of them," Hardy said.

"Everytime I revisit this moment, it's almost like there's fuzz around the outside, like it's a dream sequence. It almost feels like a dream that you had that was actually part of your reality. So it was a very surreal moment."
