Matt and Jeff Hardy, brothers from Cameron, North Carolina, collectively dubbed The Hardy Boyz, have certainly left their mark on professional wrestling. Beginning their careers in their own grassroots indy known as OMEGA (The Organization of Modern Extreme Grappling Arts), the pair quickly climbed the ranks of the wrestling world to become the cornerstone Tag Team of the WWE, in its Attitude Era. Memorable are their feuds and tables, ladders, and chair matches with Edge and Christian and The Dudley Boys. Even after splitting as a team and going their own ways, the two brothers individually had impressive singles runs, each winning numerous singles and each continuing to reinvent their looks and their characters along the way to keep fresh and relevant during their 20 year careers.
While the Hardys have certainly had memorable careers and have cemented themselves as Tag Team legends, they have also had a few stumbles along the way -- personally and creatively. Both with a checkered past, histories of drug addiction, and questionable life choices, the Hardys have often found their place underneath the negative light of the wrestling media. Furthermore, while both are certainly creative, enigmatic individuals, their choices of expression have at times been odd and abstract to say the least.
Thus, as Matt and Jeff are certainly two oddball individuals, never afraid to color outside the lines, the following is a list of the 15 strangest things that the Hardy boys have ever done, throughout their storied careers in the world of wrestling.

1 The Final Deletion
Perhaps the most talked about, most creative, most important, and definitely most weird thing to happen in wrestling in 2016 has been the saga of short films presented by TNA Wrestling known as The Final Deletion. Any wrestling fan who has not seen The Final Deletion is doing him or herself a disservice. The films available on YouTube, shot and directed by Jeremy Borash, featuring Matt Hardy as the crazy, lunatic, “Broken” Matt Hardy, his wife Reby, his son Maxel, his gardener Senior Benjamin, Brother Nero, a surprise appearance from another Hardy character, and a series of Matt Hardy’s attack drones is the right amount of campy goodness that wrestling sometimes needs. The video is too quality to describe with any justice and does not need to be spoiled here, and is certainly a testament to the weirdness that is The Hardy Boyz.
