    Matt Hardy
    
    From: Cameron, NC
    Finishing move: Twist of Fate
    Career Highlights: Hardcore Champion; Tag Team Champion
    
          The Hardy Boyz forever inscribed their names in the annals of World
    Wrestling Federation history with their breath-taking performance in the Ladder
    Match at October 1999's No Mercy Pay-Per-View, when theydefeated Edge and
    Christian to win the finals of the Terri Invitational Tournament.
    
          Now, without the services of Terri, Matt and Jeff still are top
    contenders for the Tag Team title. Still in their early 20s, Matt and Jeff
    Hardy are two of the youngest-and most gifted-high-flying superstars in World
    Wrestling Federation history.
