Matt Hardy is a true veteran in the pro wrestling world, having worked in various promotions in his career. Hardy has always managed to reinvent himself and stay fresh throughout his pro wrestling career. Matt Hardy also opened up about one of his more controversial storylines in pro wrestling.

Back in 2009, Matt Hardy betrayed his brother Jeff and cost him the World Heavyweight Championship, helping Edge win the title. Afterwards, the two were engaged in a bitter feud that lasted for the next few months.

While speaking on The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy, Matt Hardy talked about his 2009 feud with Jeff Hardy. Hardy stated that both he and his brother did not like the feud.

“The whole thing of burning Jeff’s house down. We never liked that. We’d never do a callback to that. But I remember thinking during that angle, I was like, me being jealous of my brother, who’s historically more popular than me? Sure, I can see that. Or, if I had his fireworks go off or do things to embarrass him. But like, burn his house down? I think that might be a little jumping the shark because we’re trying to play this angle as serious. You know, it’d be different if it [had been] a broken universe angle.”

The Hardys also plan on going after the AEW World Tag Team Championships in the future, so we will have to see if that will happen or not.
