Backstage update on Jeff Hardy's status after AEW Double Or Nothing 2022.

Jeff Hardy wasn't in a good way at AEW Double Or Nothing 2022.

Speaking on the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that even before AEW's latest pay-per-view, Hardy was "beaten up." He quipped that the 44-year-old was "a mess" heading into his and brother Matt's bout with The Young Bucks, having suffered considerable damage during his impactful, hard-bumping 18 May Dynamite match with Darby Allin.

Hardy entered another heart-in-mouth performance at Double Or Nothing, putting his body on the line in trademark fashion with a number of major bumps, including a Swanton Bomb to the outside and onto the ring steps (though a Buck broke his fall). Prior to this, Jeff had spent several minutes immobilised after his boot came loose on the top rope, though he leapt off regardless.


AEW recently pulled Jeff and Adam Cole from a multi-man tag team match scheduled for this week's episode of Dynamite. There is currently no word on the promotion's exact reason for this.

The Hardys' Double Or Nothing win appeared to set them up for a run at Jurassic Express' World Tag Team Titles. Luchasaurus and Jungle Boy successfully defended their belts later in the night, defeating Team Taz and the Swerve Strickland/Keith Lee combination.
