VIDEO: Matt Hardy Says TLC Matches In WWE Shortened His Career & More
Former WWE Superstar Matt Hardy recently appeared on The Roman Show, where he talked about, among other topics, how the TLC matches he took part in during his WWE run may have shortened his career.
“Whenever human flesh and bone get slammed on steel like ladders or chairs, or tables, all that stuff, TLC’s or cages, the flesh isn’t going to win,” said one-half of the former Hardy Boyz tag-team. Hardy continued, “Those matches beat you up and take a toll. It is what it is. Professional wrestling isn’t ballet. Those were very tough grueling matches. It definitely took a toll on us. They took time off our career I’m sure and they beat us up for many years down the road. With that said, those are the matches that made us famous.”
Things only got worse as each match passed, as Hardy explained the teams felt the need to step things up and out-perform their previous efforts. “That was tough. It was a challenge to overcome the last match. We were innovative.”
