I also feel that Jeff Hardy is underrated when it comes to being a babyface worker. He's a great seller, gets the crowd involved, and plays the "babyface in peril" really well. Thoughts?
Can't remember much about the TLC encounter, but I know I considered their Cage match and feud ender to be the best match of the series by a fair margin.
As for Hardy. Ehh I don't really like him. Sure he's fun to bump maniacally and nearly cripple himself on bumps, but I don't think he strings together his selling and builds his matches around it anywhere nearly as much as Matt does if we're comparing the Hardy brothers. Matt's the better seller, will build his matches and comeback around it and will take the time to sell it throughout his comeback and in really smart and unique ways.
Its strange. Jeff has the Morton/Steamboat ability to pull a crowd into his beating in a way Matt couldn't match, but Matt is far closer to Morton/Steamboat in terms of actually selling and building smart and creative comebacks wherever as Jeff's feel generally more aimless and lackluster.
