He is a 14-time world tag team champion, having held the World Tag Team Championship six times, the Raw Tag Team Championship three times, and the SmackDown Tag Team Championship.

Hardy left WWE back in 2022, quickly after his departure from WWE, Hardy made his All Elite Wrestling (AEW) debut on the March 18, 2020 episode of Dynamite, reverting to his "Broken" gimmick and being announced as the replacement for the kayfabe injured Nick Jackson on The Elite's team at Blood and Gut.
