A few hours ago on SmackDown, Jeff Hardy faced AJ Styles, defending his Intercontinental Championship. After the match, Hardy fell on the ramp and was lying down for some time.

It didn’t look like Hardy was knocked out. During the backstage check-up, it was made clear that Jeff Hardy did not lose consciousness.

The medical staff diagnosed it as dehydration, but he did not lose consciousness. This sent an indirect message to AEW that the Hardy Boy didn’t lose consciousness, just like his brother at AEW All Out.

Matt Hardy was facing Sammy Guevara at AEW All Out. A few moments into the contest, Guevara speared Hardy from an elevated platform through the table.

Hardy landed head first, straight onto the concrete. Fortunately, Guevara was lucky he didn’t take such an impact after falling from the same height. For the first time since the war started, WWE took a shoot at AEW and they did it using Hardy’s own brother.

Matt Hardy hopes to team with his brother and WWE superstar Jeff Hardy

The Hardy boys are one of the most iconic teams in pro wrestling history. They are one of the reasons why tag team wrestling has had an impact not only in WWE and AEW but on the entire Pro Wrestling business.

In an interview, Matt Hardy was asked if he wanted to tag with his brother Jeff Hardy in AEW.

“With the incredible deep division there is in AEW, I’d love to have my brother there to wrestle against the Young Bucks, Hangman Page and Kenny Omega, Private Party, FTR. There is such a deep roster. I’d love to do that one day if it was a possibility.”
