- The Hardys were willing to appear on TNA television tapings to do a “farewell angle” and drop their tag team titles, but TNA reportedly nixed that idea.
- The story goes that TNA was willing to bring them back to do a farewell storyline but they wanted Matt & Jeff to sign short-term contracts to play it out over a couple of weeks. If that were to happen, TNA didn’t want a scenario where the Hardys would appear on their television and also possibly with WWE TV which is why they insisted on contracts.
