Return of The Hardys
Since the dramatic separation of their tag team nearly five years ago, Matt and Jeff Hardy have taken their talents to the singles ranks, where they have successfully navigated their way to countless accolades and championships. For some WWE fans though, the last five years haven't quite been the same as the days of The Hardys.
As a unit, Matt and Jeff revolutionized tag team wrestling, enjoying unprecedented popularity on their way to providing some of the most memorable moments in sports-entertainment history. At Survivor Series, the WWE fans will get their way as Matt and Jeff join forces as part of Team DX.
The much anticipated reunion of The Hardys will come as part of a special 5-on-5 Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Match, putting the brothers on the same team for the first time since 2002. While many thought the reunion would never happen, The Hardys explained to WWE.com that it was only a matter of time.
"There came a point where we had to go our separate ways," said a focused Jeff. "We had to go out separately and achieve things on our own, but we always knew we would get back together at some point."
"The Hardys are a franchise," added Matt. "The time is right for a reunion. This is Survivor Series and The Hardys are survivors. It's great to be back in the saddle."
In D-Generation X, and straight-edge Extremist CM Punk, The Hardys have aligned themselves with three of the most skilled Superstars on the WWE roster. The excited duo is looking forward to partnering with their talented teammates.
"DX are the kings of controversy," proclaimed Matt. "We are pretty controversial ourselves. CM Punk has become the coolest young star in all of ECW. We are big fans of all of our teammates, and we think they may even be fans of ours. It's going to be a hell of a combination."
After five years apart, most teams struggle to find the chemistry and cohesiveness that made them successful in the first place. The Hardys, however, insist that the layoff won't affect their performance at Survivor Series.
"We've been teaming together for our entire lives, I don't expect there to be any rust," said Jeff. "We'll be bringing out a few new tricks, and of course, all the old classics. Poetry in Motion, Twist of Fate, the Swanton Bomb…they are as strong as ever."
