Matt and Jeff Hardy appeared on this week’s WWE SmackDown Live to address the rumors surrounding Jeff.
It was announced that they would be vacating the SmackDown Tag Team Championships due to an injury to Jeff’s leg. The news of the injury began to spread just over a week ago when Jeff was pulled from live events and when he was seen limping but there was no official comment from anyone in WWE until SmackDown Live.
Jeff is walking with the assistance of a crutch and he will need surgery. It sounds like a major injury because Jeff confirmed that he would be out for a long time.
Jeff’s knee has been bothering him since a dirt bike accident in 2015. No word on what the plans are for Matt but it looks like we won’t see The Hardy Boyz tag team on WWE television for a while.
Following the injury announcement, Lars Sullivan destroyed Matt, Jeff and R-Truth.
