What is Matt Hardy's net worth? Inside WWE star's fortune and how Adam 'Hangman' Page could win all his money
Matthew Moore Hardy, best known by his ring names Matt Hardy and Big Money Matt, is an American professional wrestler signed to All Elite Wrestling (AEW), popular for his time with WWE, as one half of The Hardy Boyz tag team. With his real-life brother, pro-wrestler and musician Jeff, Hardy gained notoriety in WWF's tag team division during the 90s with his participation in tables, ladders, and chairs matches. The cult icon from North Carolina has fought in AEW, WWE, TNA, Ring of Honor, and various other wrestling promotions, and is a 14-time world tag team champion, having held six (WWF) World Tag Team Championships, three WWE (Raw) Tag Team Championships, and one WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championship, among others.
Hardy has been around the wrestling scene for more than 28 years, since making his debut in 1992. Here's how he's made his millions, and how he's signed a contract that could lose him 100% of his earnings to Virginia-based pro-wrestler Hangman Page.
What is Matt Hardy's net worth?
Going by Celebrity Net Worth, the pro-wrestler has a net worth of $5 million dollars. While not the highest-paid wrestlers of his time, that is still a high amount for a wrestler his age (Hardy is 46 years old). Currently employed by All Elite Wrestling (AEW), Hardy receives an annual salary of approximately $650,000.
Hardy has done movies and television shows on the side, but the high net worth of Matt Hardy is largely down to his wrestling career. He's made appearances in famous TV shows like 'Fear Factor', 'Tough Enough', 'That 70’s Show', and 'Scare Tactics'. During the 'Fear Factor' episode, where he was put up against five other WWF wrestlers including his brother, he won $50,000 for the American Cancer Society. Hardy also appears on 'The Hardy Show', an Internet web series that features the Hardys, Shannon Moore, and many of their friends. He played himself in the 2013 film 'Pro Wrestlers vs Zombies', in which he and his wife of eight years Reby Sky battle the undead. He also appeared in a bunch of Nintendo and PlayStation video games since 1999. The Hardy Boys also penned their autobiographies titled 'The Hardy Boyz: Exist 2 Inspire'.
Matt Hardy posted a tweet with his Dodge Ram in the background. Apart from the pickup truck, he has also been reported to own a Chevrolet Corvette. In January 2019, he tweeted an image of him with his yellow Corvette with his Cameron house in the background, where he also mentioned that he now has a black Cadillac Escalade for his family.
Matt Hardy and appeared with AEW star Private Party on Impact Wrestling as part of an intercompany crossover. On Wednesday, he tweeted a picture of another Crovette, saying, "The best thing to come out of my business relationship with Private Party thus far..."

Last week, Hardy attempted to sign a drunk Adam “Hangman” Page to a contract that would give Hardy a high percentage of Page’s money. But Page outsmarted Matt Hardy to the contract. Page switched out the contracts without Hardy noticing. They now have a money match set for pay-per-view. The contract signed was for a match at AEW Revolution with the stipulation that 100% of Hardy’s earnings in the first quarter of 2021 would go to Page if he lost.
On Wednesday, Hardy tweeted a video saying, "I WAS AWARE you switched my contract, Page. It was all over the internet. I’d hoped you come to your senses & rescind your poor decision. You’re lucky the #DarkOrder saved you on #AEWDynamite from my plan. Now I’m gonna hurt you. Financially & Physically."
