Jeff Hardy is an American wrestler known in World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) as a force to be reckoned with. He is more popular as a wrestler, but also as a painter and songwriter. Because of his diverse skills, Hardy has gained a generous fan base on the Internet, many of whom flock to his fights in droves.
Bio and Age
The wrestler was born as Jeffrey Nero Hardy on August 31, 1977, in Cameron, North Carolina, where he was raised together with his older brother Matt Hardy (who is also a wrestler) by their parents Gilbert and Ruby Moore Hardy.
Unfortunately, he lost his mother at the age of nine, and from then on it was his father who had the sole responsibility of raising them. He worked on the tobacco farm, where his boys soon joined him to make sure they made ends meet.
As a young boy growing up with his brother, all the younger Hardy wanted was to become a professional wrestler in the then World Wrestling Federation (WWF). Since this was nothing conventional, the father thought that his sons would never make it, as professional wrestlers advised them to give up dreaming and take jobs as postmen or other things in public service.
Hardy attended Union Pines High School, where he played football. There he also started fighting as an amateur wrestler.
Jeff Hardy’s WWE Career
Before they performed with the WWF and later with the WWE, Jeff Hardy was next to Matt Hardy and Carnie Kenneth Morgan, with whom they held several wrestling shows. Jeff Hardy grew steadily in this sport and started as a jobber with the WWF. His job was simply to lose fights and make the opponents seem stronger than they were. He then founded The Hardy Boyz with his brother, and that led to their first WWF contract in 1998.
The first time he made a serious name for himself in the WWE was in 2002 when he fought in the individual competition and competed in a ranking match against Undertaker for the WWE Undisputed Championship. Although he lost, he earned the respect and admiration of fans and officials alike.
He went to the Independent Circuit in 2006, but returned to WWE in 2006 and brought back the Hardy Boyz. From then on he continued his fight both as a lone fighter and as a team with his brother. He has used names like Willow, Brother Nero, Wolverine, and many others in the ring. He was removed from the WWE list in 2009, which led him to use drugs, but he continued to fight and do other things until he made a comeback in 2017.
After a WWE career that can be described as very successful so far, Hardy not only has a large fan base but also many titles that bear his name. Together with Matt Hardy he has won the World Heavyweight Championship, a WWE Championship, the WWE European Championship, the WWE Championship of the United States, and 6 WWF/World Tag Team Championship titles. In total, he has won almost 50 titles as a fighter.
Although he can be very scary in the ring at times, Hardy has built a very enviable relationship. He is married to Beth Britt, whom he has known since 1999. The two got married in 2011 after 12 years of dating.
Their union is blessed with two children, Ruby Claire, and Nera Quinn.
