Matt Hardy recently appeared on The Roman Show and talked about how the TLC matches in WWE took a toll on his body. Hardy said:

"Whenever human flesh and bone get slammed on steel like ladders or chairs, or tables, all that stuff, TLC's or cages, the flesh isn't going to win. Those matches beat you up and take a toll. It is what it is. Professional wrestling isn't ballet. Those were very tough grueling matches. It definitely took a toll on us. They took time off our career I'm sure and they beat us up for many years down the road. With that said, those are the matches that made us famous."

Hardy said each match had its own battles:

"That was tough. It was a challenge to overcome the last match. We were innovative."
