The Hardy Boyz is a professional wrestling tag team. The team members were real-life brothers Matt and Jeff Hardy. The Hardy Boyz are best known for competing in World Wrestling Federation/Entertainment (WWE). They were known for competing in ladder matches and Tables, Ladders, and Chairs matches. They also worked for Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) for a short time. The team first started in independent promotions around North Carolina in 1993.

The team signed with the WWF in 1998.[1] They joined Gangrel to form The New Brood in August 1999.[2] During their time in the WWF, they were managed by Terri for a short time[3] before they were managed full-time by their real-life friend Lita. When Lita joined, the team was known as "Team Xtreme".[1] They split up in 2002 and reunited in 2006 to feud with MNM before they decided to focus on singles competition. Jeff left the company in August[4] and Matt left in late 2010.[5]

They both reunited in January 2011 in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) where they were members of the Immortal stable.[6] Matt was released from the company in August 2011 after he was arrested for driving while intoxicated.[7]
