It's 2019 and The Hardy Boyz are still going strong.

Just shy of a full 20 years since the brothers won their first WWE Tag-Team Titles in June 1999, Matt and Jeff are riding high as SmackDown Tag Champs. That's an unbelievable stat. Imagine that happening with pretty much any other tandem; it's an impossibility. 1990's Demolition, for example, would have had to bag the gold in 2010 to even come close.

Here's a question: would The Hardyz have reached such iconic status if they marched to the ring wearing cutlery? No, that's not a typo, and it was something a wrestling legend once suggested for the siblings. His idea was to take some knives, forks and spoons, glue them to ring gear and create history. Who was it? Read on to find out.

Other facts you'll learn about include what X-Pac felt he had to apologise for after his 2019 WWE Hall Of Fame induction speech as part of DX, exactly who turned Shane McMahon onto the 'Coast To Coast' and why Batista had some heat with Triple H before WrestleMania 35...
