Historic rivalry between Edge, Matt Hardy after infamous Lita affair
Edge, Lita, and Matt Hardy have been involved in one of WWE’s most iconic backstage storylines. In 2005, as Matt Hardy was on the mend from a knee injury, his best buddy Edge cheated on him with his girlfriend, Lita. All of them were at the time active members of WWE.
After being together for six years, Matt and Lita got engaged to be married. However, after Lita moved to Smackdown, she had a romantic involvement with the married Edge. Due to his unethical behavior on social media, WWE terminated Matt’s contract once he discovered the affair and made it public online.
After Matt returned to WWE to compete with Edge, the company demoted him to the mid-card in favor of a more prominent storyline involving Edge and Lita. The boundary between fact and acted drama was muddied, as described by Edge, because of their backstage enmity. He thinks his and Matt’s dispute solidified their standing as rivals in the singles scene. In addition, it helped Lita advance in the sport of wrestling.
