Matthew Moore Hardy (born September 23, 1974) is an American professional wrestler currently contracted to WWE's Raw brand.

Before signing with WWE, Hardy, with his brother Jeff, founded a wrestling organization called Organization of Modern Extreme Grappling Arts (OMEGA). While there, Hardy held many championships including the Heavyweight and Tag Team Championship, which he held with Jeff. The promotion folded in October 1999 when they signed contracts with WWE. The Hardys gained notoriety in WWE's tag team division due to their participation in Tables, Ladders, and Chairs matches.

Hardy also held the WWE Intercontinental Championship once. Hardy was also the winner of both the 2006 and 2012 Royal Rumble, making him only one of two people (CM Punk being the other) to win two Royal Rumbles.
