Unfortunately, their return was stalled when Jeff suffered a shoulder injury in September, with initial diagnosis saying he would be out four-to-six months. With Jeff out, Matt has rarely appeared on WWE television and even lost to Elias at Survivor series in a dark match.
Well, there's good news. Jeff recently announced at a WWE party that he should be recovered before WrestleMania 34, and he plans to appear at the event in four months time.
Without the Hardys, the Raw tag team division has been a revolving door of Cesaro and Sheamus alternating championship reigns with Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins. The feud has been somewhat successful, but there's no denying how much better the tag team card is with the high-flying Hardy brothers.
Though his matches have often featured incredible and epic stunts, Jeff has put his body at risk many times, and has suffered numerous injuries throughout his wrestling career.
When he left the WWE in 2009 (after losing a career-threatening match to CM Punk), Hardy took time off to recover from numerous injuries, including a nagging neck problem. and a pair of herniated discs.
During his time in TNA, Hardy also had to take time off after breaking his leg in a dirt biking accident, missing almost three months of action. Now at 40 years of age, Hardy's body is more fragile than ever before. He knows the risks of putting his body on the line each match, and it's amazing how he continues to do it for our entertainment.
With Hardy expected to return by WrestleMania, we'll see how this impacts the other Raw tag teams. Perhaps Ambrose and Rollins will start their own rivalries, or possibly the The Bar will disband. Stay tuned...
