AEW has changed its booking plans regarding the AEW Tag Team Championship since Double or Nothing, according to a new report. Fightful Select reports that some talent has indicated they heard before Double or Nothing that AEW was considering a title run for the Hardys in what Jeff Hardy said over WrestleMania weekend was likely their last run. The site notes that some talent they spoke to were frustrated with the Double or Nothing weekend, as they had heard that Jeff was publicly drunk on the weekend and in the lobby of the hotel des talents before another event. Talent was also considered when it came to Jeff’s performance in the Hardys vs. Young Bucks match at Double or Nothing, although Hardy reportedly suffered a head injury earlier in the game. Hardy told officers during his arrest on Monday morning that he had an upcoming doctor’s appointment regarding his head which involved brain scans.
The report notes that Fightful heard after Double or Nothing weekend that the titles were likely to transfer to the Young Bucks, although the Standard would not be confirmed until that happened. Anyway, the discussion of the Hardys being the next tag team champions fell immediately after Double or Nothing. It should also be noted that the segment between the one aired last week on Dynamite between Christian, Jurassic Express, the Hardys and the Young Bucks was filmed the previous week, a few days after Jeff’s injury Double or Nothing.
There has been a lot of concern for Jeff behind the scenes at AEW, although there has also been frustration over the tag team title scene following the injury and arrest, as well as “some indications” that such a situation could reappear.
