Matt Hardy Recalls A Fountain Drink Almost Knocking Him Unconscious At WWE King Of The Ring 1995

Matt Hardy shares his memories of King of the Ring 1995.

At the 1995 edition of the then-annual WWE event, Matt and Jeff Hardy served as "guardsmen" for the entrance the wrestlers emerged from. During a recent episode of his The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy podcast, Matt explained how he and his brother landed the role while also sharing his "biggest laughable moment" from the show.

“We ended up getting that gig, they told us, “Hey, we need you to come up a day early.” We’re booked for the televisions after to the PPV, and, “We have a role for you on the show.” We’re like, “Oh my God, are they going to have us wrestle or do dark matches? This is so cool.” We got up there and then they had these big jester outfits and they’re for big bodybuilder guys that did it the previous years. So they’re baggy on us, and loose, which was so funny. Me and Jeff found so much comedy in that. Then we went out and obviously did the doors. I know I had an earpiece in and they would say, “Open the door. Close the door.” The directions were very simple. I just had to listen to the earpiece. I just remember it was kind of static-y, and there was one where I remember opening a door and somebody threw a drink down and it was just packed with ice and hard as a rock and it hit me in the head. I remember it almost knocked me unconscious. I remember they wanted us to be very stoic, very grim, don’t change facial expressions. I remember hitting my knees like I was about to pass out and fall, and I remember Jeff going [snickers loudly under his breath]. I tried all I could to regain my composure and just try and remain stoic and keep a straight face. That was my biggest laughable moment about that," Matt said.

Both Matt and Jeff currently perform for All Elite Wrestling. Jeff is scheduled to compete next Wednesday against Adam Cole in an Owen Hart Foundation Tournament semi-final match. Click here to view the updated card for the show.
