Matt Hardy Recalls Marty Garner Taking Spike Pedigree From Triple H

Triple H has delivered countless pedigrees throughout his career, but none were worse looking than when he hit Marty Garner with one in 1996.

Garner was used as an enhancement talent and instead of taking the move flat on his face and stomach, ended up being spiked on his head.

Matt Hardy, who traveled with Garner at the time, recalled the incident on the latest Extreme Life of Matt Hardy with Jon Alba.

"When Marty got with us originally, he rapped and did other things, he was always in the entertainment field, but pro wrestling wasn't something he grew up watching, love, or was even a big fan of, but he dug it once he learned about it, understood it, and got the taste he really loved it. When the pedigree happened, he wasn't a longtime wrestling fan and hadn't watched the stuff, so he wasn't sure, he just assumed if someone was grabbing you and picking up up, it's like a piledriver. He kicked up real hard and ended up landing on his bean," he said.

Hardy noted that as bad as it looked, Garner was actually in rougher shape following a missed dive against Jeff Jarrett as it was a more violent fall and Triple H was at least holding Garner for the pedigree, offering a little more protection.

Continuing to speak on the pedigree, Hardy said, "When you see the clip and Trips is pedigreeing him, you see when he jumps straight up and lands on his head, he pulls his hands off like 'don't sue me, I didn't do that. It wasn't me.' His reaction was so funny to it."

Garner was best known as Cham-Pain, working with the Hardyz in OMEGA.
