WWE star and former SmackDown tag champion Matt Hardy took to Twitter earlier today to comment on his very first appearance in the WWE 25-years ago today. Hardy reveals that his “debut” was on a live episode of Raw against Nikolai Volkoff before questioning whether or not Vince McMahon will give him a special celebration.
Today is the 25 year anniversary of my 1st appearance in a
@WWE ring. I was 18 & on a LIVE episode of #RAW against Nikolai Volkoff. Jeff’s 20th year since signing a #WWE contract was commemorated.. Maybe @VinceMcMahon will surprise me with a 25 year celebration on #SDLive.
See Hardy’s Tweet below.

On May 23rd, 1994, 25 YEARS AGO TODAY, my @WWE journey began.
Was told by Tony Garea that if I "mess up" the match, I’ll never be welcomed back to #WWE. Nikolai walks up & says "We do everything out there, listen to me. No pressure, I mess up every match."
