As expected, Matt Hardy and Jeff Hardy were forced to vacate the tag team championship because the former has been left on his own as the latter is going to need several months to recover from a dirt bike injury. TNA has decided to have Bobby Roode and Austin Aries join the fray. The two of them will be facing Davey Richards and the returning Eddie Edwards in a best of five series to determine which team will hold the belts.

Since his tag team partner Eddie Edwards is on the shelf, Davey Richards believed that he had nothing to do in TNA. However, management has assured him that he will be pushed as a singles performer while his partner recovers from an injury. Richards is going to be utilized in the X division, where he will be challenging for the championship very soon. This is essentially an audition to see if he can be pushed as a top level star in the future.

While Eddie Edwards was working vigorously to be able to return from an injury in time for the next taping of Impact Wrestling, TNA opted instead to strip he and Davey Richards of the world tag team championship. The reason for doing that is because the front office does not want to risk either one of them being hurt again. The company views the Wolves as two of their key players in the division, so they want to ensure they stick around.

While reports earlier this week stated that Eddie Edwards was well on the road to recovery and would be returning in time for television, it appears that TNA will be taking the safe approach. At the Impact Wrestling taping on Friday, Edwards and Davey Richards cut a promo and announced that the Wolves were vacating the belt. They cited the real life injury as the reason why. The vacant tag titles will be filled in some manner soon.
