Together with Jeff he won 6 World Tag Team Titles and 1 WWE Tag Team title. In 2001 when the Hardys turned into singles competitors, Matt won the European title. This was the first singles title that Matt had won in WWE. Matt had the second longest European title reign in the WWE. After that, the Hardys would reunite but during a match between Jeff and Rob Van Dam, Matt attacked Jeff.

At Wrestlemania 19, he successfully defended his title against Rey Mysterio. After his cruiserweight title reign he entered a feud with Kane who wanted his girlfriend Lita. Matt lost to Kane in a match of which the winner would take Lita even though Lita tried to help Matt.
When the whole Kane-Lita marriage was screwed up Edge betrayed Matt and became Lita's boyfriend. In 2005 Matt was released from WWE. Some months afterward Matt returned to WWE, and entered a feud with Edge in which he lost a street fight match but won a steel cage match.

In 2006, the Hardys reunited and entered team DX for Survivor Series against Team Rated RKO. Team DX won with all its members surviving. Later the Hardys took on MNM, Regal & Taylor and Paul London & Brian Kendrick in a ladder match for the tag team titles but lost. The Hardys then competed in a 10-tag teams battle royal for the tag team titles which they won. The Hardys successfully defended their titles against Lance Cade and Trevor Murdoch at Backlash but lost them at the next episode of RAW.
After the feud with Cade and Murdoch, Matt entered a feud with the U.S Champion MVP but Matt was not able to win the title. MVP and Matt formed a tag team and faced Deuce N Domino for the WWE tag team titles in a match they won. On November 16 MVP and Matt dropped their titles to The Miz and John Morrison.
