#2. WWE Hall of Famer Edge - Matt Hardy

WWE Hall of Famer Edge and Matt Hardy were once best friends. Nonetheless, their friendship collapsed when The Rated R Superstar had an affair with Hardy's real-life girlfriend, Lita.

In April 2005, WWE fired Hardy due to "unprofessional conduct" after learning about his girlfriend's affair with his best friend. Meanwhile, Edge and Lita continued dating.

A few months later, WWE rehired Hardy. Nonetheless, the company turned the real-life issues between Hardy, Edge, and Lita into an on-screen storyline. The three wrestlers had to work together for a couple of months.

The storyline ended in October 2005, when Hardy faced Edge in a Loser Leaves Raw ladder match at WWE Raw Homecoming. The Rated R Superstar defeated the former United States Champion, forcing him to leave for SmackDown.

Later, Lita confessed that the storyline was uncomfortable for her to the extent that she almost quit. In an interview with Peter Rosenberg, Edge also disclosed how he felt during that time.

"You gotta be pros, and also, back to my point of finding positives when it doesn’t seem like there are any on the surface, you gotta dig underneath the surface, this was one of those... hopefully out of this, we can not only be stronger performers, but stronger people too.' And that usually doesn’t happen within the context of a wrestling storyline," he said.

Edge and Lita later split. The Rated R Superstar is currently married to WWE Hall of Famer Beth Phoenix. Meanwhile, Matt Hardy is now an active competitor in AEW. He is married to former IMPACT Wrestling star Reby Sky.
