Jeff Hardy’s 5 Best WrestleMania Matches

Jeff Hardy made a name for himself as one-half of The Hardy Boyz alongside his brother, Matt Hardy. The pair gained recognition as tag team specialists during the Attitude Era. The Hardy Boyz influenced a generation with their matches against The Dudleys and Edge and Christian.

The three teams would revolutionize tag team wrestling with their innovative bouts. Their matches at WrestleMania elevated them to another level. Even though Hardy has only had seven WrestleMania matches under his belt, these outings have achieved a cult status among pro wrestling fans.

Jeff Hardy vs. Matt Hardy (WrestleMania XXV)

The Hardy versus Hardy feud was one of my favorites heading into WrestleMania XXV. Matt had cost Jeff his WWE Championship against Edge at Royal Rumble 2009. The sibling rivalry would turn extremely violent in the following weeks.

Hardy versus Hardy war took place under Extreme Rules stipulation at WrestleMania XXV. Both men made proper use of foreign objects to dish out punishment on each other. Jeff missed a leg drop on his brother from the top of the ladder.

Matt used the opportunity to put away Jeff with a chair-assisted Twist of Fate for the win. The Daredevil would have his revenge at Backlash 2009 in a solid I Quit Match.
