Last night on SmackDown Live, The Hardy Boyz came to the ring to make an announcement. As Jeff Hardy limped out on crutches, we knew immediately we were in for some bad news.
Unfortunately, Jeff Hardy revealed that he recently suffered an injury at the hands of Lars Sullivan, and as he required surgery and would be “out for a long time,” he and his brother would be forced to relinquish their SmackDown Live Tag Team Championships.
To make matters worse for the Hardys, the moment they were done with their announcement, Lars Sullivan came to the ring to finish what he started. Though he succeeded in incapacitating Matt Hardy, R-Truth arrived just in time to prevent any further injury to Jeff.
This will undoubtedly not be the case by next week, but so far, there has been no announcement regarding the future of the tag titles, and no other tag team has attempted to stake claim to the championships.
