Matt Hardy has cast doubt on whether his brother Jeff will return to wrestling.

He also claimed that the Hardys were set to become AEW Tag Team Champions if Jeff Hardy had not been suspended and entered rehab after a DUI arrest in June.

On this weekend’s episode of The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy, he said:

It’s just very unfortunate, the things that happened with Jeff. Hopefully it’s something that he is going to make into a positive and he’s going to turn everything around in his life, and he can come back and be better. We’ll see, I don’t know, I don’t know.

 Maybe he comes back, maybe he doesn’t, but we were scheduled to do all kinds of things during the summer and it really sent me down a big path of detour following that, but it is what it is. It’s pro wrestling where you have to adapt and change on the fly, and I’ve made the most of it and tried to do what I can.

When asked by co-host Jon Alba if the brothers had been set for a run as champions, Matt Hardy replied:

Yeah, I think we were going to see the Hardys as the AEW World Tag Team Champions if Jeff didn’t suffer that very unfortunate twist of fate.

 Jeff Hardy was arrested on June 13th for a DUI offense, with AEW announcing the following day that he was indefinitely suspended without pay. The company stated that the 45-year-old could return after completing treatment for substance abuse, which AEW would assist with.
