We exclusively reported last week that Jeff Hardy plans to take an extended break from WWE following the SummerSlam PPV. While sources close to Hardy are still confident that he does in fact plan to take a hiatus from the company, it should be noted that WWE is pitching several ideas to Hardy and working hard at keeping him from leaving as they don’t want to lose one of their top baby faces.
According to a source I spoke with today, one idea pitched to both Matt and Jeff Hardy would see the two reunite as a tag team for a run billed as "The Hardy Boyz Tour," and the team would work a long term program with Chris Jericho and Big Show for The Unified Tag Team Titles. The tag matches would be booked on TV, PPV’s and house shows across the country, and would most likely culminate in The Hardy Boyz winning the tag titles and having another run with the gold.
While nothing has been agreed upon, and we do not have any idea whether or not Jeff is open to any of the ideas creative is pitching for him, it should be noted that WWE is trying their hardest to offer something to Jeff that will intrigue him enough to continue working for the company following SummerSlam.
