From the WWE Rumor Mill: Reason why Hardy Boyz lost revealed?

It had its share of weak spots, but still saw many wrestlers shining in the ring. However, he pulled something else off at Extreme Rules.

- Above is video of new RAW Tag Team Champions Cesaro and Sheamus talking to Mike Rome after their Steel Cage win over The Hardys at Extreme Rules.

The double team continued, and Jeff Hardy tried to get back into the cage through the cage door, before Sheamus delivered a Brogue Kick to the door to Hardy's face.

Matt and Jeff lost a competitive bout against Sheamus & Cesaro, who picked up the win after a death-defying stunt from Jeff cost the brothers the match.

A few times per year, WWE Superstars will do something wild like this off the top of a cage.

The Hardy Boyz may have made a weird decision in not picking a ladder match for their stipulation, but it still provided for a fun match that gives Cesaro and Sheamus seemingly more of a chance.

For The Hardys, however, they dropped their Raw Tag Team Championships by mere inches in this match.

The story would be centred around Jeff's high-risk move costing the duo their titles, with Matt potentially moving ever so slowly towards the Broken side after months of portraying his old "Hardy Boyz" persona.
