What’s the story?

Over the weekend, during a Q&A session at Wizard World Comic Con Chicago, Jeff Hardy got people talking about a potential dream match that he currently has in mind.

Hardy name dropped the current RAW Tag Team Champions, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins, as two guys he would like to face alongside his brother Matt. And not only that, he wants to face them inside Hell in a Cell.

In case you didn’t know…

Jeff Hardy’s history with Ambrose and Rollins is virtually non-existent at this point. After the former Shield partners won the RAW tag titles at SummerSlam 2017, the pair then faced the Hardys the very next night on last week's RAW.

That was the one and only time that those four guys have shared a ring, and the only time Jeff Hardy has ever squared off against either Ambrose or Rollins in any capacity.

The heart of the matter

While Jeff would love a Hell in a Cell showdown with Ambrose and Rollins, he’s open to alternatives.

Jeff also mentioned the idea of a ladder match with the current champs -- another possibility that I’m sure nobody would be complaining about.

What's next?

This year’s Hell in a Cell show takes places in a little under six weeks on October 8. Unfortunately for Jeff though, the show’s going to be a SmackDown-exclusive event.

Barring some kind of drastic -- and improbable -- roster-wide switch-up, if Jeff wants this match to become a reality, it looks like he’s going to have to wait until next year’s show and hope that Hell in a Cell 2018 is a RAW-branded event.

Author’s take

There’s no denying that a Hardys vs. Ambrose and Rollins programme would be an awesome addition to the Raw tag division. Realistically, the only question here is around the feasibility of staging that meeting under a Hell in a Cell or ladder match stipulation.

And while this year’s Hell in a Cell show may be off the cards, for the RAW wrestlers, three weeks after that event is the TLC pay-per-view -- a PPV that just happens to be a RAW-exclusive show. As long as he doesn't mind settling for the alternative, with a bit of luck -- and perhaps a little lobbying -- Jeff may not have to wait too long for his ladder match with Ambrose and Rollins.
