The Hardys had been set to win the AEW World Tag Team Championships before Jeff Hardy was scheduled for a brain scan. 

Bryan Alvarez noted on the Bryan & Vinny & Jonathan Show that plans changed after concerns were raised about Jeff following the Hardys vs. Young Bucks match at Double or Nothing. 

"The idea was the Hardys were going to win the tag titles in this ladder match, that was the plan for awhile," Alvarez said. "Apparently, at the pay-per-view when the Hardys and the Bucks had their match, Jeff was not looking good. Apparently, they examined him afterwards and he was all beat up and he didn't remember the match."

"Remember when Jeff got pulled over and said he was on his way to a brain scan? He was on his way to a brain scan. So, his idea was to drink whatever he drank and then drive to his brain scan."

"They had advertised the ladder match. He was never actually going to be in the ladder match. They were going to do the angle where he and Matt were going to be coming out for the ladder match, they were going to be jumped on the ramp and they were going to be carted off and they weren't actually going to do the match. So, whether he had his DUI or not, Jeff was never going to do that ladder match. It was always going to be Jurassic Express vs. the Young Bucks for the tag team titles with the Young Bucks winning."

"The Hardys were going to be in the ladder match but then after they scheduled him for the brain scan, he wasn't going to be in the ladder match."
