Jeff Hardy is set to undergo surgery and the SmackDown Tag Team Titles are now vacant.
During Tuesday’s episode of SmackDown Live, The Hardy Boyz did an in-ring segment where Jeff noted that he needs to have surgery and will be out of action for a long time. This was after he showed a video package of Lars Sullivan recently attacking him. As a result, Matt and Jeff are forced to relinquish the SmackDown Tag Team Titles.
This led to Sullivan coming out to the ring where he attacked Matt but R-Truth tried to run out to make the save but was laid out.
The brothers defeated The Usos (Jey & Jimmy Uso) on the post-WrestleMania 35 episode of Smackdown Live in Brooklyn, New York at the Barclays Center to win the SmackDown Tag Team Titles.
As a result, they became the first team in history to hold the World Tag Team Titles, WCW Tag Team Titles, RAW Tag Team Titles and SmackDown Tag Team Titles.
It’s been reported that Hardy got injured while working a SmackDown live event in Madison, Wisconsin over the weekend where The Hardyz teamed up to defeat The Usos.
Hardy appeared to have suffered some sort of leg injury and that looks to be the case as Jeff was on a crutch in this segment.
