Matt Hardy vs. Edge
Who? Yes, Matt Hardy, that’s who. This match featured the Edge, who was a very well-known fighter going at it against a relatively unknown Matt Hardy. I mean seriously, with a stage name like that the guy might as well have been named John Smith.
You see, Matt Hardy and the Edge were close friends off stage. At least they were until the storyline came out for their match-up. In the storyline, the Edge has an affair with Hardy’s on-stage girlfriend, Lita. Well, as it turns out, life imitated art that day.
In reality, The Edge was actually having an affair with Lita, who was actually Matt’s girlfriend. This all exploded in the ring when the promoters decided to exploit this odd turn of events and the fight was brutal. When Matt addressed the issue in the press after the match, he was unceremoniously fired. That’s a rough day at the office, no matter how you slice it.
