Matt's Mailbag for September 5, 2006
As you know, your brother Jeff is back in the WWE on the RAW brand. I'm sure you've been asked a million times before, but is there any chance of seeing the greatest tag-team in WWE history, Team Xtreme, getting back together?
-Mike in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida
Is there a chance? Hell yeah! Although for the immediate future, Jeff is on the RAW brand, and Matt is on the SmackDown brand--we are both in the WWE. As we all know, anything can happen in the WWE. I'd bet my jimmy legs that the Hardy Boyz will reunite and be better and more entertaining than ever. When the situation arises, I believe Jeff and I will be more dominate than we were before. But for now, he's doing his thing, and I'm doing mine. And for the record, I'm so happy and proud of my brother for coming back and being at such an amazing place in his life right now.

As you know, the No Mercy pay-per-view in October is coming to Raleigh in your home state of North Carolina. Do you plan on making any public appearances or autograph signings around that time? Your hometown fans can't wait to see you!
I can't wait to see you guys! I hope to have an appearance in my home state during the week of No Mercy. I absolutely love mingling with my fellow Tarheels, and if the WWE can get something set up, I will let you know. Check WWE.com to stay updated, it's the only website where you can get authentic (without being misconstrued) WWE info.
What's up? You asked what kind of hair-do you should go with…have you ever considered going with a Honky Tonk Man style haircut?
Joey, why would you try and rib me like that? No, I haven't ever considered the Honky Tonk Man hairdo. The only way I would get the Honky Tonk Man haircut is if I had to choose between that and that silly hairdo that Gregory Helms has right now. If that was the case, you'd be calling me the Honky Tonk Matt, HA!
How did it feel to get in the ring with your long-time friend and fellow Carolina resident Gregory Helms this week on SmackDown?
I must admit, it was extremely tough and demanding, but also a lot of fun. There is quite a rivalry between myself and Gregory, dating back to around 1996 or so. We beat the snot out of each other on the indies, we beat the piss out of each other in OMEGA, and now we beat the sh*t out of each other in the WWE. Helms is a phenomenal talent who I think is highly underrated. It's always a pleasure to battle it out with someone who you know is as passionate about this business as yourself, especially when they're as talented as Greg is. I liked our match from last week's Smackdown alot--it was a hard earned victory for me, and that's how I like it.
I remember when you were first coming up during the attitude era with Jeff, and you guys were being managed by Michael Hayes. What was it like working with a legend like him?
- Justin from Round Rock, Texas
We were really fortunate and honored to get the chance to work with Michael Hayes. "P.S." was so beneficial to Jeff and I as a tag team. Michael was the brains behind the Freebirds, one of the greatest tag team units of all time. He taught my brother and I so much about tag team psychology, timing, and pacing--it was priceless advice. Hayes has a great wrestling mind, and excels in thinking out of the box when others can't. To this day, I still run ideas by Michael to get his insight and feedback on them. I can honestly say I don't think I would be where I'm at without Michael's help.... Although I've nearly died several times over the years by drinking ungodly amounts of Jagermeister with him, LOL.
Recently we learned that Kurt Angle and WWE agreed that it was time for him to take some time off. What are your thoughts on the news and what do you think of Kurt?
Initially, I was very surprised when I heard Kurt would be leaving, as we all were. I signed my original WWE contract after Kurt had signed his, but we both went to the WWE Dojo together. From day one, you could tell he was a special athlete with only one gear, hyperspeed. In his 7 years in the WWE, he punished his body to uphold his high athletic standards, even with a known bad neck. Over the last year or so, Kurt was definitely hurting from giving the fans everything he had, both physically and mentally. I understand why he's gone for now, and it very well may be for the best. Our WWE careers are only a short part of our entire lives. I would hate to see Kurt end up either paralyzed or worse, especially if it could have been prevented. Kurt needs to heal his body and mind, he owes that to himself. I have nothing but good things to say about the "Wrestling Machine". I will definitely miss having him and his passion for the business around. I will also selfishly miss watching him in the ring, and wrestling against him. Take care Kurt, and be well...
If I could send you one thing for your birthday, anything in the world, what would it be?
An unlimited gift certificate to the fountain of youth and health would be absolutely perfect!
I hope you guys are thoroughly enjoying "Matt's Mailbag". I'm glad you took the time to check it out. The column had a record breaking response last week as we received over 15,000 questions and e-mails. WOW! Thank you for all of your support and interest. I'm going to do my best to give everyone some insight into my life and world, and hopefully make you smile along the way. I also want to thank all my MFer's (Matt Followers) who support me in the WWE week in and week out. I also want to mention one of my all time favorite chants that occurred recently on a live event. During the finale of one of my matches, a group of fans starting chanting "Twist that b*tch!", rooting for me to hit the Twist of Fate. Awesome chant guys, keep up the creativity on your end and I'll keep it up on mine. Until next week, be well...
