WWE legend Jeff Hardy reportedly suffered an injury at a WWE live event over the weekend.
The 41-year-old and his brother Matt recently reunited and claimed the SmackDown Live tag-team titles from The Usos a fortnight ago.
But Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio claims the veteran daredevil appears to have damaged his leg.
The report states Jeff was hurt Saturday night at a show in Madison, Wisconsin as The Hardy Boyz defeated The Usos again.
And he appears to be taking a back seat for the time being as he sat out the next two nights.
On Sunday he was in the corner of Matt as he battled Jimmy Uso, and Meltzer says the former WWE Champion was “limping significantly” throughout.
And on Monday his brother instead teamed with R-Truth to beat Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows.
No other details are yet known about Jeff’s injury but it looks unlikely he will be part of tonight’s episode of SmackDown.
It will be a bitter blow for arguably the greatest tag team in wrestling history coming just two weeks after their title triumph.

The duo’s celebrations were cut short when Lars Sullivan entered the ring to lay them out after they had overcome The Usos.
But since then they have not been involved in any feuds, although Shinsuke Nakamura and Rusev, Heavy Machinery, and Gallows and Anderson will all be hoping to claim a shot at the belts due to The Usos being drafted to Raw.
Jeff remains one of the most-popular superstars on the WWE roster and fans will be hoping the damage sustained to his leg will not force him out of action for an extended period.
