Jeffrey Nero "Jeff" Hardy[1] (born August 31, 1977)[4] is an American professional wrestler, singer-songwriter, painter and musician. He is currently signed to Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA), under the ring name Brother Nero, He is best known for his work with World Wrestling Federation/Entertainment (WWF/E).

Before gaining prominence in WWE, Hardy performed for the Organization of Modern Extreme Grappling Arts (OMEGA), a promotion he ran with his brother Matt.[4] After being signed by WWE, the brothers worked as jobbers,[6] before gaining notoriety in the tag team division, partly due to their participation in Tables, Ladders, and Chairs matches.[7] With the addition of Lita, the team became known as Team Xtreme and continued to rise in popularity.[5] As a tag team wrestler, Hardy is an eight-time world tag team champion (six World Tag Team Championships, one WCW Tag Team Championship, and one TNA World Tag Team Championship) – all with his brother Matt.[5][8]

As a singles wrestler, Hardy is a six-time world champion, having held the TNA World Heavyweight Championship three times, the WWE Championship once and WWE's World Heavyweight Championship twice. Within WWE, he also held the Intercontinental Championship four times, the Light Heavyweight and European Championships once each and the Hardcore Championship three times, making him the eighteenth Triple Crown Champion and the tenth Grand Slam Champion in company history. Between WWE and TNA, Hardy has won 23 total championships.[8]

Hardy is involved in motocross, music, painting, and other artistic endeavors.[9] He is currently a member of the band Peroxwhy?gen, with whom he has released two studio albums and one extended play.

Early life[edit]

Jeff Hardy is the son of Gilbert and Ruby Moore Hardy, and the younger brother of Matt Hardy.[5][6][10] Their mother died of brain cancer in 1986, when Hardy was nine.[6][11][12] He developed an interest in motocross aged 12 and got his first bike, a Yamaha YZ-80, at age 13.[13] He had his first race when he was in ninth grade.[14] Hardy played baseball as a child, but had to stop after he crashed during a motocross race, injuring his arm.[14] He also played football during high school as a fullback and linebacker.[13] He briefly competed in amateur wrestling in high school.[15] He had to stop playing football in high school, after he was ordered to pick between professional wrestling and football, and he chose wrestling.[16] Hardy's favorite subjects in school were U.S. history and art, which he did for extra credit.[17]

Professional wrestling career[edit]

Early Career (1991−1994)[edit]

Hardy, along with his brother Matt and friends, started their own federation, the Trampoline Wrestling Federation (TWF) and mimicked the moves they saw on television.[6] Later on, the TWF went under several different names, eventually being integrated into a county fair in North Carolina. The brothers and their friends then began to work for other independent companies. They drove all over the East Coast of the United States, working for companies such as ACW and other small promotions.[1]

OMEGA Championship Wrestling (1997−1998)[edit]

Before arriving in the WWF, Matt formed his own wrestling promotion, the Organization of Modern Extreme Grappling Arts (OMEGA) with Thomas Simpson.[4] The promotion was a more successful version of the original TWF and included talent such as both Hardy brothers, Shannon Moore, Gregory Helms, Joey Matthews, and Steve Corino, among others.[18] In OMEGA, each of the brothers portrayed several different characters; Hardy portrayed such characters as Willow the Wisp, Iceman, Mean Jimmy Jack Tomkins, and The Masked Mountain.[4] While there, Hardy held the New Frontier Championship as a singles competitor and the Tag Team Championship with Matt.[4][19][20] The promotion folded in April 1998 when they signed contracts with the WWF.[21]

Enhancement Talent (1994−1997)[edit]

Hardy cites Sting, The Ultimate Warrior, and Shawn Michaels as his childhood inspirations to wrestle.[22] He started on World Wrestling Federation (WWF) television as a jobber — a wrestler who consistently loses to make his opponents look stronger. His first WWF match was against Razor Ramon on May 23, 1994 in Youngstown, Ohio,[23] with Randy Savage mentioning on commentary, "Welcome to the big time". His ringname that night, Keith Davis, was the name of Razor's scheduled jobber, who backed out on short notice. Gary Sabaugh, who had brought Hardy in a group along with Davis, suggested him to agent Tony Garea, who agreed after Hardy claimed he was 18 (he was in fact, only 16).[24] The next day, he wrestled under his real name against The 1-2-3 Kid, and the match aired on the June 25 episode of Superstars.[25] He occasionally wrestled as a jobber as late as 1997 (including a match against Rob Van Dam during the ECW "invasion" storyline that had Hardy billed as being from Virginia instead of Cameron, North Carolina)[26] before beginning his first major run in 1998.[6]

The Hardy Boyz (1998–2002)[edit]

Main article: The Hardy Boyz

The Hardy brothers eventually caught the eyes of the World Wrestling Federation (WWF). After being signed to a contract in 1998,[6][27] they were trained by Dory Funk Jr. in his Funkin' Dojo with other notable wrestlers such as Kurt Angle, Christian, Test, and A-Train.[1] When the team was finally brought up to WWF television, after months of "jobbing" and live events, they formed the acrobatic tag team called the Hardy Boyz.[4] While feuding with The Brood in mid-1999, they added Michael Hayes as their manager.[4] On July 5, they won their first WWF Tag Team Championship by defeating the Acolytes, but lost it back to them a month later.[28] After the dissolution of the Brood, the Hardys joined forces with Gangrel as The New Brood and feuded with Edge and Christian.[4][29] This stable did not last long, however, and on October 17, 1999 at No Mercy, the Hardy Boyz won the managerial services of Terri Runnels in the finals of the Terri Invitational Tournament in the WWF's first ever tag team ladder match against Edge and Christian.[6][30] They competed in the first two TLC (Tables, Ladders and Chairs) matches ever, both against Edge and Christian and The Dudley Boyz.

Team Xtreme at King of the Ring in 2000

In 2000, the Hardy Boyz found a new manager in their real-life friend Lita.[5] Together, the three became known as "Team Xtreme".[5] They continued their feud with Edge and Christian throughout 2000, defeating them for the WWF Tag Team Championship on two occasions.[31][32] At SummerSlam, the Hardy Boyz competed in the first ever Tables, Ladders, and Chairs match (TLC match), for the Tag Team Championship against the Dudley Boyz and Edge and Christian, but were unsuccessful.[7]

Hardy gained attention for his high risk stunts in the TLC matches,[7][33][34] making a name for himself as one of the most seemingly reckless and unorthodox WWF performers of his time.[35] In 2001, Hardy received a push as a singles competitor, and he held the Intercontinental (defeating Triple H),[36] Light Heavyweight (defeating Jerry Lynn)[37] and Hardcore Championships (defeating Mike Awesome and Van Dam on two separate occasions).[38] At the end of 2001, the Hardys began a storyline in which they began to fight, which led to Matt demanding a match at Vengeance, with Lita as the special guest referee.[39] After Jeff Hardy beat Matt by pinfall at Vengeance, while Matt's foot was on the ropes, Hardy and Lita began feuding against Matt.[40] In the middle of the feud, however, Hardy faced The Undertaker in a Hardcore Championship match and lost.[41] After the match, The Undertaker was scripted to attack both Hardy and Lita, injuring them.[41] On the next episode of SmackDown!, The Undertaker attacked Matt as well, also injuring him, in storyline.[42] The Hardys and Lita were not seen again until the Royal Rumble, because WWE did not have another storyline for their characters.[43] The Hardys later came back as a team, and there was never any mention of their previous storyline split.[43]

In early April 2002, the Hardy Boyz began a feud with Brock Lesnar after Lesnar gave Matt an F-5 on the steel entrance ramp, which led to an angered Hardy seeking revenge on Lesnar.[44] At Backlash, Hardy faced-off against Lesnar in Lesnar's first televised match.[45] Lesnar dominated Hardy and won the match by knockout.[46] Lesnar and the Hardys continued to feud over the next few weeks, with the Hardys coming out victorious only once by disqualification.[47] At Judgment Day, Lesnar gained the upper hand on the Hardy Boyz before tagging his partner, Paul Heyman, in to claim the win for the team.[48] In July 2002, Hardy won his third Hardcore Championship by defeating Bradshaw.[8][38]

Singles competition and departure (2002–2003)[edit]

Jeff Hardy at a WWE event in 2003

After years in the tag team division, Hardy took on The Undertaker in a ladder match for the Undisputed WWE Championship.[4][49] Hardy came up short in the intense match, but earned The Undertaker's respect when he displayed courage by attempting to rise to his feet after the bout and challenge The Undertaker to continue.[4] Hardy competed for singles titles on several occasions and defeated William Regal for the European Championship.[50] Hardy was defeated a few weeks later by Rob Van Dam in a ladder match to unify the European Championship and the Intercontinental Championship, and the European Championship was retired.[50] Finally, the Hardy Boyz split apart, as Hardy continued to pursue his singles ambitions on Raw and his brother, Matt left Raw for his own singles pursuits signing with Stephanie McMahon's SmackDown! brand. On Raw, Hardy would compete in WWE's Hardcore division until the title's unification with the Intercontinental Championship.[51]

In late 2002, Hardy had been teaming with Rob Van Dam and Bubba Ray Dudley. He along with Bubba Ray and Spike Dudley defeated 3-Minute Warning at Survivor Series in a six-man tag team elimination tables match.

In January 2003, Hardy briefly turned into a heel (villain) after he attacked Van Dam and Shawn Michaels.[1][52][53] It ended a month later when he saved Stacy Keibler from an attack by then-villain, Christian.[54] In February, he had a brief program with Michaels, which saw the two team up.[49][55] Then, in storyline, Hardy began dating Trish Stratus after saving her from Steven Richards and Victoria in March.[56] Hardy and Stratus had a brief on-screen relationship that saw the duo talking backstage and teaming together in matches. Hardy competed in his final match (his first departure) against The Rock and lost.[1][57] Hardy, however, was released from WWE on April 22, 2003.[1][58] The reasons given for the release were Hardy's erratic behavior, drug use, refusal to go to rehab, deteriorating ring performance, as well as constant tardiness and no-showing events.[5][58] Hardy also cites "burn out" and the need for time off as reasons for leaving WWE.[22]

Independent circuit (2003)[edit]

Hardy made his first wrestling appearance after being released from WWE at an OMEGA show, on May 24.[4] Using his old gimmick, "Willow the Wisp", Hardy challenged Krazy K for the OMEGA Cruiserweight Championship, but lost the match.[4]

Ring of Honor (2003)[edit]

Hardy performed with the Ring of Honor (ROH) promotion on one occasion.[59] Hardy appeared at ROH's 2003 show, Death Before Dishonor, under his "Willow the Wisp" gimmick, wearing a mask and trench coat.[59] Hardy was quickly unmasked and lost his jacket, wearing attire similar to that he wore in WWE.[59] Hardy was booed and heckled before, during, and after the match by the ROH audience, who chanted "We want Matt!" and "You got fired!" during his match with Joey Matthews and Krazy K, which Hardy won.[59] Hardy then took a whole year off of wrestling to concentrate on motocross and finish his motocross track.[9]

Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (2004–2006)[edit]

Hardy in TNA in 2005

Hardy debuted in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) on June 23, 2004, at the Second Anniversary Show, in a match against A.J. Styles, for the TNA X Division Championship.[60] He also debuted his new entrance theme "Modest", a song performed by Hardy himself, and a new nickname, "The Charismatic Enigma".[4] The match ended in a no contest when Kid Kash and Dallas interfered.[60] Hardy returned to TNA on July 21 and was awarded a shot at the NWA World Heavyweight Championship.[61] Hardy challenged for the title on September 8, losing to NWA World Heavyweight Champion Jeff Jarrett.[62] In October 2004, he won a tournament,[63] earning a shot at the NWA World Heavyweight Championship on November 7 at Victory Road, TNA's first monthly pay-per-view.[64] Hardy was defeated by Jarrett once again in a ladder match at Victory Road following interference from Kevin Nash and Scott Hall.[64]

One month later at Turning Point, Hardy, Styles and Randy Savage defeated Jarrett, Hall and Nash (collectively known as the Kings of Wrestling).[65] Hardy went on to defeat Hall in a singles match, substituting for Héctor Garza at Final Resolution on January 16, 2005.[66]

At Against All Odds in February 2005, Hardy lost to Abyss in a "Full Metal Mayhem" match for the number one contendership to the NWA World Heavyweight Championship.[67] Hardy returned the favor by defeating Abyss in a Falls Count Anywhere match at Destination X in March.[68] On March 15, 2005, Hardy teamed with Shocker defeating David Young and Lex Lovett.[69] Hardy then went on to feud with Raven,[70][71] Hardy defeated Raven in a Six sides of steel match at Lockdown in April.[72] Hardy was suspended from TNA after no-showing his "Clockwork Orange House of Fun" rematch with Raven at Hard Justice on May 15, allegedly due to travel difficulties.[4][73][74] Hardy's suspension was lifted on August 5, and he returned at Sacrifice approximately a week later, attacking Jeff Jarrett.[75]

He wrestled his first TNA match in four months at Unbreakable on September 11, losing to Bobby Roode following interference from Jarrett.[76] Throughout October 2005, Hardy became embroiled in a feud with Abyss, Rhino and Sabu.[77][78] The four way feud culminated in a Monster's Ball match at Bound for Glory on October 23, which Rhino won after delivering a second rope Rhino Driver to Hardy.[1][79] In the course of the match, Hardy delivered a Swanton Bomb to Abyss from a height of approximately 22 ft 0 in (6.71 m).[79] Later that night, Hardy competed in a ten-man battle royal for the number one contendership to the NWA World Heavyweight Championship, which Rhino also won.[79] At Genesis in November, Hardy lost to Monty Brown in another number one contender match.[80]

Hardy was scheduled to wrestle on the pre-show of Turning Point in December 2005, but once again no-showed the event, again citing traveling problems.[1][4] Hardy was suspended as a result and did not appear on TNA television again.[4] In March, April, and May 2006, Hardy appeared on several live events promoted by TNA in conjunction with Dave Hebner and the United Wrestling Federation. Hardy was later released from his TNA contract in June 2006.[1][4]

Return to WWE[edit]

The Hardys reunion (2006–2007)[edit]

On August 4, 2006, WWE announced that Hardy had re-signed with the company.[58] In the following weeks, vignettes aired hyping his return on the August 21 episode of Raw.[81] On the day of his return, Hardy received a push and defeated then-WWE Champion Edge by disqualification when Lita pulled Edge out of the ring.[82] After failing to capture the Intercontinental Championship from Johnny Nitro over the next few weeks, including at Unforgiven,[83] Hardy finally defeated Nitro to win his second Intercontinental Championship on the October 2 episode of Raw.[84] On the November 6 episode of Raw, Hardy lost the Intercontinental Championship back to Nitro, after Nitro hit him with the Intercontinental Championship title belt.[85] One week later, Hardy regained it on the November 13 episode of Raw, with a crucifix pin.[86] This marked Hardy's third reign as Intercontinental Champion.[36]

The Hardy Boyz, Jeff (far left) and Matt (far right)

On the November 21 episode of ECW on Sci Fi, Hardy teamed with his brother, Matt, for the first time in almost five years to defeat The Full Blooded Italians.[87] At Survivor Series, they both were a part of Team D-Generation X, which gained the victory over Team Rated-RKO with a clean sweep.[88] The brothers then received their first opportunity since Hardy's return to win a tag team championship at Armageddon.[89] They competed in a four-team ladder match for the WWE Tag Team Championship, but they came up short in their attempt.[89] In the course of the match, however, they inadvertently legitimately injured Joey Mercury's face.[90]

With Hardy still feuding with Johnny Nitro and the other members of MNM into 2007, he was challenged once again by Nitro at New Year's Revolution in a steel cage match for the Intercontinental Championship.[91] Hardy once again defeated Nitro.[91] Hardy then teamed with Matt to defeat MNM at both the Royal Rumble and No Way Out pay-per-views.[92][93] The next night on Raw, February 19, Hardy lost the Intercontinental Championship to Umaga.[94] In April 2007, Hardy competed in the Money in the Bank ladder match at WrestleMania 23.[95] During the match, Matt threw Edge onto a ladder and encouraged Hardy, who was close to the winning briefcase, to finish him off.[95] Hardy then leaped off the 20-foot-high (6.1 m) ladder, drove Edge through the ladder with a leg drop, seemingly injuring both Edge and himself.[95] The two were unable to continue the match and were removed from ringside on stretchers.[95]

The night after WrestleMania on Raw, April 2, the Hardys competed in a 10-team battle royal for the World Tag Team Championship.[96] They won the titles from then WWE Champion John Cena and Shawn Michaels by last eliminating Lance Cade and Trevor Murdoch.[96] They then began a feud with Cade and Murdoch, with the Hardys retaining the Championship in their first title defense against them at Backlash and again at Judgment Day.[97][98] The Hardys then defended their titles against The World's Greatest Tag Team in a Ladder match at One Night Stand.[99] However, the next night on Raw, the Hardys lost the titles to Cade and Murdoch, competing through injuries sustained in their previous night's ladder match.[100] The Hardys earned a rematch at Vengeance: Night of Champions but were defeated.[101]

Championship reigns and departure (2007–2009)[edit]

Jeff Hardy worked closely with Triple H during late 2007, and again in late 2008

In the midst of feuding with Umaga, who defeated Hardy at The Great American Bash to retain the Intercontinental Championship in late July,[102] Hardy was abruptly taken off WWE programming.[4] He posted on his own website and in the forums of TheHardyShow.com that it was time off to heal, stemming from a bad fall taken in a match against Mr. Kennedy on the July 23 episode of Raw.[4] He made his return on the August 27 episode of Raw beating Kennedy by disqualification after Umaga interfered.[103] The following week, on September 3, Hardy successfully captured his fourth Intercontinental Championship by defeating Umaga for the title.[104]

This was the start of a push for Hardy, and at Survivor Series, Hardy and Triple H were the last two standing to win the traditional elimination match.[105] Hardy began an on and off tag team with Triple H,[106][107] which eventually led to a respectful feud between the two.[107] The rivalry continued at Armageddon, when Hardy defeated Triple H to become the number one contender for the WWE Championship.[108] In the weeks leading up to the Royal Rumble, Hardy and Randy Orton engaged in a personal feud, which began when Orton kicked Hardy's brother, Matt, in the head in the storyline.[109] Hardy, in retaliation, performed a Swanton Bomb on Orton from the top of the Raw set and seemed to have all the momentum after coming out on top in their encounters.[110][111][112] Hardy, however, lost the title match at the Royal Rumble,[110] but was named as one of six men to compete in an Elimination Chamber match at No Way Out, where he survived to the final two before being eliminated by the eventual winner, Triple H.[113]

During the March 3 episode of Raw, Hardy appeared on Chris Jericho's "Highlight Reel" segment as a special guest, but ended up attacking Jericho.[114] This led to an Intercontinental title match on the following Raw where Hardy dropped the title to Jericho.[115] Off-screen, Hardy dropped the title after he was suspended for sixty days, as of March 11, for his second violation of the company's Substance Abuse and Drug Testing Policy.[116] Hardy was also removed from the Money in the Bank ladder match at WrestleMania XXIV in which he was booked to win after the suspension was announced.[116][117] Hardy returned on the May 12 episode of Raw, defeating Umaga.[118] This reignited the rivalry between the two, and they met in a Falls Count Anywhere match at One Night Stand, which Hardy won.[119]

On June 23, 2008, Hardy was drafted from the Raw brand to the SmackDown brand, as a part of the 2008 WWE draft.[120] Hardy made his SmackDown debut on the July 4 episode, defeating John Morrison.[121] Hardy participated in the WWE Championship Scramble match at Unforgiven and also challenged for the Championship at No Mercy and Cyber Sunday, but failed to win each time.[122][123][124] He was originally scheduled to be in the WWE Championship match at Survivor Series, but, in storyline, was found unconscious in his hotel, allowing the returning Edge to replace him in the match and win the title.[125][126] At Armageddon in December 2008, Hardy defeated the defending champion Edge and Triple H in a triple threat match to capture the WWE Championship, his first world championship.[127][128]

In January 2009, Hardy's next storyline led to his involvement in scripted accidents, including a hit-and-run automobile accident and an accident involving his ring entrance pyrotechnics.[129][130] At the 2009 Royal Rumble, Hardy lost his WWE Championship to Edge after Hardy's brother, Matt, interfered on Edge's behalf and hit Hardy with a steel chair.[131] The buildup to this feud involved Matt implying that he was responsible for all of Hardy's accidents over the past few months, and at WrestleMania XXV, Matt defeated Jeff in an Extreme Rules match.[132][133] In a rematch at Backlash, however, Hardy defeated Matt in an "I Quit" match.[134]

At Extreme Rules, Hardy defeated Edge to win the World Heavyweight Championship in a ladder match. Immediately after the match, CM Punk cashed in his second Money in the Bank briefcase, which gave him a guaranteed world championship match at any time he wanted, and defeated Hardy to win the championship.[135] Hardy received his rematch at The Bash, and won the match via disqualification after Punk kicked the ref in the back of the head while feigning an eye injury with Punk still retaining the title.[136] At Night of Champions, however, Hardy won the championship for the second time, by defeating Punk.[137][138] At the SummerSlam pay-per-view in August, Hardy lost the title back to Punk in a Tables, Ladders, and Chairs match.[139] On the August 28 episode of SmackDown, Punk Beat Jeff Hardy in a steel cage rematch for the World Heavyweight Championship, resulting in Hardy leaving WWE, in storyline, per the pre-match stipulation.[140] This storyline was put in place to allow Hardy to leave WWE to heal his injuries, including a neck injury.[141][142] Hardy also had two herniated discs in his lower back and was suffering from restless legs syndrome.[141][142]

Return to TNA[edit]

Immortal (2010–2011)[edit]

Hardy during his return to TNA at the live Impact! on January 4

On TNA's first live Monday episode of Impact! on January 4, 2010, Hardy made his return to TNA, along with Shannon Moore.[143] He was attacked by Homicide after emerging from the crowd, but hit Homicide with a steel chair and performed the Twist of Fate on the Impact! Zone ramp.[143] He later appeared in backstage segments throughout the evening.[144] The following day, it was reported that Hardy had signed a new contract with TNA.[145] Hardy would make his next appearance for the company on the March 8 episode of Impact!, saving D'Angelo Dinero, Abyss and Hulk Hogan from A.J. Styles, Ric Flair and Desmond Wolfe.[146] The following week, Hardy defeated then TNA World Heavyweight Champion A.J. Styles in a non-title match.[147]

On the April 5 episode of Impact!, Hardy was introduced as a member of Team Hogan for the annual Lethal Lockdown match, where they would face Team Flair.[148] One week later, however, Hardy was injured when James Storm spewed a volatile liquid against a flame from his lighter, forming a fireball that singed most of Hardy's face.[149][150] At Lockdown, Team Hogan (Hardy, Abyss, Jeff Jarrett and Rob Van Dam) defeated Team Flair (Sting, Desmond Wolfe, Robert Roode and James Storm).[151] At Sacrifice, Hardy defeated Mr. Anderson.[152] After the event, Anderson turned face and eventually managed to convince the skeptical Hardy that he really had changed, after which the two went on to form a tag team.[153][154] At Slammiversary VIII, Hardy and Anderson, now known as Enigmatic Assholes, defeated Beer Money, Inc. (Robert Roode and James Storm) in a tag team match.[155]

On the August 19 episode of Impact!, the TNA World Heavyweight Championship was vacated after Rob Van Dam was injured by The Monster Abyss and Hardy was entered into an eight-man tournament for the championship, defeating Rob Terry in his first round match.[156] At the semi-finals at No Surrender, Hardy first wrestled Kurt Angle to a twenty-minute time-limit draw, after which Eric Bischoff ordered a five-minute period of extra time. After that and a second five-minute extra time period also ended in draws, it was ruled that Angle was unable to continue and the match ended in a no contest.[157] After wrestling a draw on the September 16 episode of Impact!, it was announced that both Hardy and Angle would advance to the finals at Bound for Glory, where they would compete with Mr. Anderson in a three–way match.[158]

Hardy as the TNA World Heavyweight Champion in November 2010

At Bound for Glory, Hardy turned heel with Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff and with their help defeated Angle and Anderson to win the TNA World Heavyweight Championship for the first time. They were then joined by Jeff Jarrett and Abyss, revealing the group that Abyss had been referring to as "they" for several months.[159] On the following episode of Impact!, the stable was named Immortal, as it formed an alliance with Ric Flair's Fortune. Meanwhile, Hardy debuted a new dark character, using cryptic messages as he explained the reasons behind his turn.[160] At Turning Point, Hardy retained his title in a defense against Matt Morgan, a replacement for Mr. Anderson, who was sidelined after suffering a concussion during an attack by Hardy.[161] On the following episode of Impact!, Hogan presented Hardy with a new design of the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, which he dubbed the TNA Immortal Championship.[162] At Final Resolution in December, Hardy successfully defended the championship in a rematch against Morgan after incapacitating the special guest referee Mr. Anderson and having a replacement referee count the pinfall.[163] On January 4, 2011, Hardy made his debut for New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) at Wrestle Kingdom V in Tokyo Dome, where he successfully defended the TNA World Heavyweight Championship against Tetsuya Naito.[164][165]

On January 9 at Genesis, Hardy's brother, Matt, made his TNA debut as a surprise member of Immortal and defeated Rob Van Dam to prevent him from receiving a match at Hardy's championship. That same night, Hardy gave Anderson a match for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, immediately following Anderson's victory in a number one contender's match. Despite Matt, Flair, and Bischoff interfering in an attempt to help Hardy, Anderson defeated Hardy for the championship.[166] On the January 13 episode of Impact!, the Hardy Boyz reunited and defeated Anderson and Van Dam in a tag team match, following interference from Beer Money, Inc.[167] On the February 3 episode of Impact!, Hardy received his rematch for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship. The rest of Immortal interfered in the match, but were stopped by Fortune, which led to Anderson retaining the championship.[168] On February 13 at Against All Odds, Hardy defeated Anderson in a ladder match to regain the TNA World Heavyweight Championship.[169] Hardy held the championship for less than two weeks, defending it once against Rob Van Dam, before losing it to the returning Sting on February 24, at the tapings of the March 3 episode of Impact!.[170][171][172] On March 13 at Victory Road, Hardy received a rematch for the title under No Disqualification rules, but was defeated in ninety seconds.[173] TNA had made the decision to cut the match short after deeming that Hardy was too intoxicated to wrestle.[174] The following day it was reported that TNA had sent Hardy home from the week's Impact! tapings.[174] On the March 17 episode of Impact!, Immortal severed their ties with Hardy.[175]

Road to Redemption (2011–2013)[edit]

Hardy as Willow

On February 11, TNA investor MVP made a phone call to Jeff Hardy and announced that Hardy would return at the Lockdown pay-per-view.[226]

In mid-February 2014 strange vignettes began airing advertising Hardy's return to TNA under his OMEGA character, Willow.[227] He made his TNA return at Lockdown, in the Lethal Lockdown match as part of Team MVP.[citation needed] He then appeared on the following episode of Impact Wrestling, facing Rockstar Spud.[228] In the following weeks, he would continue to feud with Spud and Ethan Carter III, leading to a tag-team match between them (with Kurt Angle as Willow's partner) at Sacrifice on April 27.

On the July 24 Impact Wrestling, Hardy told the audience that we had not seen the last of Willow and then brought out Matt Hardy, his brother, to reform The Hardys.[232] The Wolves joined them in the ring and challenged them to a match for the TNA World Tag Team Championship at Impact Wrestling: Destination X, which the Hardys agreed to. At Destination X, the Hardys lost against the Wolves, but shook hands after the match.[233] On October 22, 2014, The Hardys entered a number one contenders tournament for the TNA World Tag Team Championships defeating The BroMans (Jessie Godderz and DJ Z) in the first round of the tournament.[234] On October 29, episode of Impact Wrestling, The Hardys defeated Team Dixie (EC3 and Tyrus) in the semifinals to advance to the finals of the tournament where they defeated Samoa Joe and Low Ki to become number one contenders for the TNA World Tag Team Championship.[235] On the January 7 episode of Impact Wrestling, Hardy along with his brother Matt were at ringside for The Wolves vs. James Storm and Abyss; during the match, The Great Sanada and Manik attempted to interfere in the match, but then ended up receiving a Side Effect from Matt Hardy, and a Twist of Fate from Jeff Hardy. Despite that, it distracted Eddie Edwards, who then received a Last Call super kick from Storm. At the Lockdown episode of Impact Wrestling, Hardy suffered a minor concussion which was set as a storyline injury when he fell on the door of the cage; James Storm hit Hardy off the door onto the steel steps below with a cowbell. The falling off the cage spot was covered in mainstream media such as USA Today and TMZ.[236][237] Hardy returned after TNA United Kingdom tour. In March, The Hardys participated in a tournament for the vacant TNA World Tag Team Championship.

After a brief hiatus, Hardy returned on the August 26 episode of Impact Wrestling, where he and Matt made an agreement that if Matt would his second match against Carter for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, then Jeff would become his personal assistant. Matt was unsuccessful, and Jeff was forced to be Carter's assistant.

On the May 10 episode of Impact Wrestling, Hardy teaming with James Storm against Decay in a losing effort after an Imposter Willow distracted Hardy. After the match, Hardy searched backstage for the Imposter Willow and would end up being attacked by three different people dressed as Willow. On the May 17 episode of Impact Wrestling, Hardy would face one of the Imposter Willow in a winning effort, to ultimately be attacked by another Imposter Willow while trying to unmask the one he had just defeated, both Imposter Willows would then bring out the leader of the Imposter Willows, who would be revealed to be a Matt Hardy.

On July 5, "The Final Deletion" was won by Broken Matt Hardy, forcing Jeff to drop the Hardy name.[243] After the match, Matt would try week after week to break Jeff including having Jeff (kayfabe) crash his motorcycle while doing a stunt to prove his courage to Matt.

On the August 11 episode of Impact Wrestling, Jeff and Matt defeated The Tribunal. Afterwards, Jeff finally snapped, executing multiple Twists of Fate on the members of The Tribunal. He then proceeded to throw himself over the top rope onto Al Snow through a table before executing a Swanton Bomb on another table driving himself through it and going insane in the process. Matt laughed and Jeff joined him, admitting that he was "Brother Nero" (Nero being Jeff Hardy's middle name) and Matt declared that Jeff was broken. On the August 18 episode of Impact Wrestling, the team of "Broken Matt and Brother Nero" defeated the Bromans, The Tribunal, and The Helms Dynasty (Trever Lee and Andrew Everett) in an "Ascension To Hell" Fatal Four Way Number One Contender's Ladder Match for an opportunity to challenge Decay for the TNA World Tag Team Championships.
