[2007-04-29-WWE-Backlash] Matt & Jeff Hardy vs Lance Cade & Trevor Murdoch

Recommended Posts

The Hardys are mostly known as high-spot guys but here we have them working a fairly basic southern style tag match and it's really good. Cade/Murdoch wrestle like gritty old bastards which is a bit weird considering they're in their mid-20s here but they pull it off. Lots of cunning heelish tactics like cutting off the poetry in motion from the apron spoiling The Hardys signature spots. Jeff has a particularly strong performance here in the Face In Peril role and gets his revenge in the end when Murdoch's distracting the referee backfires.

 

The Hardys 2007 run is definitely worth watching for the "Greatest WWE Tag Team" debate.

***1/2

See, that's what I liked about Cade & Murdoch; the fact that despite their youth at the time, they were working such a good old school style. That made them stand out from the rest of the tag team division. It was also interesting to have Jeff Hardy play the Ricky Morton part in the match while it usually was Matt but Jeff did a really good job in this one.

 

Also agreed that the Hardys run in 2007 was really fun to watch.

Underwhelming from what I remember at the time.

 

Cade & Murdoch look so green here, even the spots described above look off. Jeff is a boring FIP and Cade & Murdoch don't do much to keep things exciting. Very little chemistry and there's no real tale being told.
