That would have been different. Title matches are some of the most important parts of any wrestling show. A title changing hands can mean a new direction for the wrestlers or perhaps even the promotion as a whole. It can be a big deal to see a title change hands and that was the case again this week. However, it seems that things did not change as originally planned.
The main event of this week’s AEW Dynamite saw the Young Bucks win the AEW Tag Team Titles from Jurassic Express in a ladder match. The match was originally supposed to include the Hardys but Jeff Hardy’s arrest resulted in the team being pulled. According to Fightful Select, some AEW wrestlers had heard plans of a possible Tag Team Title run for the Hardys before Double Or Nothing. However, Hardy was reportedly intoxicated in the hotel lobby over Double Or Nothing weekend. This combined with the Hardys vs. Bucks match at the pay per view ended any discussion of the Hardys winning the titles.
Opinion: The Hardys are in a weird place as they are legends, but they are also legends in their mid to late 40s. They are banged up and unable to keep moving around the way they did before and that is going to cause them some issues. Throw in Hardy’s addiction issues and there is almost no way to push them as the top team in the division going forward. I don’t know if the team is going to be wrestling on the big stage again, but this isn’t doing them any favors.
What do you think of the Hardys? Will the wrestle on the big stage again? Let us know in the comments below.
