They have won more tag team championships together outside of WWE as well. They started to work as a tag team for the first time in 1993 and that was on the independent circuit. They have also work in different promotions while working on the independent circuit including in WWE. But during this time they have mostly been treated as jobbers.

In 1998 they signed a professional contract with WWE. Instantly they have been started to be treated as a bug threat to the Tag Team division of WWE. In a very short amount of time they became really successful in the promotion and the fans just loved them. They have presented some of the best Tag Team matches of the Attitude Era.

They are not only legends of WWE but legends of professional wrestling, both as a team and singles competitors. Currently they are working on AEW, the team that is one of the biggest Rivals of WWE right now and there working as a team in AEW.

Matt Hardy who is a former 11 times Tag Team champion in WWE recently spoke on his Extreme Life Of Matt Hardy where he talked about the success of The Hardy Boyz in the early 2000s. He also talked about becoming one of the top Merchandise sellers of WWE back in the time. He said;

“I do know that we were one of the hot young acts because I knew our merchandise was doing so well. I know in the year 2000, we sold more merchandise than any other tag team in history over the course of that year, and we were breaking records at every level, which is very cool, and that was us in our prime or at our height, whatever you want to say.

“I do know that we had put the accelerator to the floor and we were blowing Nitro away. I do know that there was a feeling in the locker room where the gap was so far away that guys were worried that we were getting so far away that it was ultimately going to be bad for business because they wanted competition to stick around.

“I do remember when we were there in ’98, I felt like guys got treated a lot better. They were a lot more lenient if people wanted to negotiate deals or get better money because there was someplace else you could go and make big money besides WWE. You know, obviously WCW was there and they had deep pockets as well.

“So I know the further down the road we got and once we started pulling more ahead of WCW, a lot of guys really were worried that if WCW does end up going out of business, it’s going to be bad for business in the big scheme of thing because it’s going to take away a lot of leverage from the pro wrestlers who are classified as independent contractors.”
