#1 Jeff Hardy
If there is any superstar in the WWE that had complete disregard for his personal well-being barring Shane McMahon of course, it has to be ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ Jeff Hardy.
He was among those superstars, who did not have the look or promo skills to be the top guy in the WWE, but his ability to leave the fans in disbelief due to his move set and dedication, made him a main event talent.
His move, The Swanton Bomb is an iconic finisher, that he has executed from spots that would make you rethink his sanity. The bumps he used to take due to his high flying ability would make you cringe. He was a pure treat to watch as he would jump out of the rope on his opponents, perform the 450 splash out of nowhere and execute suicide dives like none other. He is credited with creating many moments that are forever etched in the memory of fans.
It's a shame he left the WWE due to his drug problems, but you never know when he might be back considering the return of The Dudley boyz came as a surprise. So keep your fingers crossed folks and hope for the best.
