Hardy has retained his prominence through multiple changes in his persona over the years. Not only did those alterations help him to gain popularity, but it also provided him with multiple successful championship runs as well.

Outside WWE, Hardy was a household name in promotions like Ring of Honor and Impact Wrestling, where he is a former World Champion.
Those were the accomplishments owing to his in-ring skills. Apart from that, Wrestling Observer Newsletter presented him with 'Best Gimmick' awards on two occasions, once in 2002 for the Version 1 persona and then again in 2016 for being 'Broken'.
