10 Wrestlers With The Most WWE Ladder Matches Ever

2. Jeff Hardy - 17

Rob Van Dam Jeff Hardy Ladder Match 2002

If Edge is synonymous with ladder matches in World Wrestling Entertainment, then Jeff Hardy is synonymous with falling off of ladders in World Wrestling Entertainment. In fact, you could argue that it was these most dangerous spots that the reputation of Jeff Hardy was made. Jeff has taken part in more traditional ladder matches than anyone else (11), and has also been in the most TLC matches without winning a single one (five).

It was in a ladder match that Jeff Hardy was established as a singles star, as he went one-on-one with The Undertaker for the WWE Undisputed Championship on RAW in 2002. Jeff put up the fight of his life, and for a brief moment it looked as though he was going to pull out the victory, only for the Deadman to pull the rug out from under his feet. Jeff lost the match, but he won the respect of all and sundry.

Jeff also had a number of memorable ladder matches against Rob Van Dam as the Invasion story raged on, with their battles arguably being the only well-put together aspect of the entire story. Even so, we mostly just remember him falling off ladders, right?


Born in the middle of Wales in the middle of the 1980's, John can't quite remember when he started watching wrestling but he has a terrible feeling that Dino Bravo was involved. Now living in Prague, John spends most of his time trying to work out how Tomohiro Ishii still stands upright. His favourite wrestler of all time is Dean Malenko, but really it is Repo Man. He is the author of 'An Illustrated History of Slavic Misery', the best book about the Slavic people that you haven't yet read. You can get that and others from www.poshlostbooks.com.
