Biography (from WWF.com)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
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.
