“WWE SmackDown” was previously considered as the B-show of WWE, but over the course of its 24-year existence, it has produced numerous unforgettable moments. As a result, Matt Hardy, who is a multi-time WWE Tag Team Champion, recently took some time to reminisce about some of his personal highlights from the blue brand.

Since he found it difficult to pick just one, Hardy decided to mention a few notable matches, which included a championship bout against WWE Hall of Famer Rey Mysterio. “The one where I lost the Cruiserweight title to Rey Mysterio, and we headlined in Anaheim, [California],” Hardy recounted, recalling their June 2003 match. “That was very cool. It was a huge deal.”

After 16 years, Matt Hardy reunited with his brother Jeff to challenge The Usos for the “SmackDown” Tag Team Championship. The Hardy Boyz emerged victorious and claimed the titles. However, their reign was short-lived as Jeff suffered a knee injury and they had to relinquish the gold after only three weeks. Nonetheless, Matt remains appreciative of their time as champions. “That was a significant moment for us too,” he remarked. “It was very cool, particularly since it was during our final run there.”
