The story goes back to 2005, at the Survivor Series pay-per-view of that year. The Undertaker made his shocking return and attacked former WWE champion Randy Orton. The segment ended up in a huge in-ring brawl, during which Matt Hardy made his comeback. However, he didn’t react how he was supposed to and it made The Undertaker angry. The reason behind Hardy’s inappropriate behavior was his frustration with the creatives.

Recalling the moment, Matt said, “We went out there, we did that and I was planning on powdering out. But there was a part of me, that was just so frustrated. And once again it was my fault, I will be accountable for it. Just when Taker came out I was like laying on the ropes. And I didn’t react to him like I should have.
