Jeff Hardy Confirms He Needs Surgery, Hardy Boyz Relinquish SmackDown Tag Titles

hardy boyz jeff hardy surgery smackdown tag team champions relinquish title

The Hardy Boyz are no longer SmackDown Tag Team Champions, as they’ve relinquished the titles due to Jeff Hardy apparently needing surgery. 

The brothers made the announcement during SmackDown Live this week, with Jeff (on crutches) saying he needs surgery due to an attack from Lars Sullivan and could be out of action for a long time.

This prompted “The Freak” to make his entrance and attack Matt Hardy. Jeff then acted like he was going to fight through the injury, but R-Truth appeared from behind to aid The Hardy Boyz. 

Unfortunately, it didn’t work out in Truth’s favor. 

Watch how it ended below.
