Hardy’s Removed from AEW World Tag Team Title Match before Jeff’s DUI Arrest!
It seems the Hardy’s were removed from the huge match up for Rampage: Road Rager, BEFORE Jeff was arrested or his DUI. Get the details below!
As we all know Jeff Hardy was recently arrested and charged following a DUI. There was a lot of speculation as to whether of not the Hardy’s would be removed from the match a as a result, which they were… but it seems that the Hardy’s were not removed from he match post Jeff’s DUI, instead they were removed prior to Jeff’s DUI. According to a report from Bryan Alvarez, AEW actually pulled the Hardy’s from the match before Jeff’s arrest actually occurred, the reason given was that AEW were concerned abpout Jeff’s wellbeing after The Hardy’s m,atch against the Young Bucks are Double or Nothing. See below for further details fromAlvarez.
“The idea was the Hardys were going to win the tag titles in this ladder match, that was the plan for a while. Apparently, at the pay-per-view when the Hardys and the Bucks had their match, Jeff was not looking good. Apparently, they examined him afterwards and he was all beat up and he didn’t remember the match. Remember when Jeff got pulled over and said he was on his way to a brain scan? He was on his way to a brain scan. So, his idea was to drink whatever he drank and then drive to his brain scan. They had advertised the ladder match. He was never actually going to be in the ladder match. They were going to do the angle where he and Matt were going to be coming out for the ladder match, they were going to be jumped on the ramp and they were going to be carted off and they weren’t actually going to do the match. So, whether he had his DUI or not, Jeff was never going to do that ladder match. It was always going to be Jurassic Express vs. the Young Bucks for the tag team titles with the Young Bucks winning. The Hardys were going to be in the ladder match but then after they scheduled him for the brain scan, he wasn’t going to be in the ladder match.“
As we all know by now, the Young Bucks went on to defeat Jurassic Express for the AEW World Tag Team Championship on last weeks Dynamite: Road Rager show. Real Rasslin will provide further updates when they are available and we hope that Jeff gets the help he needs to move passed his demons.
