Tag Team Championship: The Revolution vs The Wolves (Jan 7, 2015)

James Storm Interrupts Matt Hardy and Lays Out Two Options (Feb. 13, 2015)
Last week on IMPACT WRESTLING, Matt Hardy addressed the fans in Glasgow to give an update on the condition of his brother Jeff Hardy but was interrupted by James Storm and The Revolution who gave Matt an ultimatum to either join the revolution or join his brother Jeff in the hospital.

However, that is not at all the only story going into this match. Do you remember the TNA World Tag Team Championship reign that these two men shared together as the "Dirty Heels"?

Don't miss Friday Night IMPACT, tomorrow at 9/8c, on Destination America!
TNA Superstars come from all walks of life and with all different experiences. The stars of IMPACT WRESTLING have backgrounds ranging from military veterans to professional stunt women. Davey Richards is certainly best known as a ring technician, but did you know that he is also a firefighter and Critical Care Flight Paramedic?
The former TNA World Tag Team Champion headed to the UK in-order to practice one of those skill sets during the Maximum IMPACT Tour but had to use more by the time the trip was over. The Wolves boarded their return flight from the UK when a medical emergency occurred and Richards sprung to action!
Richards responded to the pilot's call for any trained medical personnel and successfully treated an elderly woman experiencing heart problems. Richards was commended by the flight staff, the patient and the patient's family.
After hearing about the story, IMPACTWRESTLING.com reached Davey for comment:
"I feel it's my personal duty to put good in the world. Whether inspiring people to chase their dreams and keep fighting as one half of the Wolves or helping people in their time of need. I want to be there to help and lead by example."
Put that down as your feel good story of the day! Way to go, Davey!
Jeff Hardy's career has been filled with some amazing high flying maneuvers, but it has also seen it's share of spectacular crash and burns at the hands of his competitors. To start off the list we will look at this past week's February 6, 2015 edition of IMPACT WRESTLING where we saw James Storm take out Hardy while perched on top of the steel cage at Lockdown 2015. His health in this case remains to be seen as we will be getting an update from his brother, Matt Hardy, on this week's edition of IMPACT WRESTLING emanating from Glasgow.
When Jeff Hardy faced Lashley for the World Heavyweight Title in New York City one would expect that Hardy, in his quest for championship gold, would stop at nothing to attain the highest level in pro wrestling. Fans were not disappointed as Hardy unleashed everything in his arsenal to defeat Lashley and capture the title. However, this may have lead to his downfall as he attempted to Swonton Bomb Lashley outside of the ring but landed on the steel steps instead.
At final resolution 2013 as part of a Dixieland match, Hardy makes an attempt to scale the ladder to retrieve the title and become the TNA World Heavyweight Champion, however his attempt is thwarted by Dixie Carter's lackey at the time, Rockstar Spud. Spud has since found a new path but this fall caused by him is spectacular no less.
One of the most dangerous places with the highest chances of a crash and burn seems to be inside a steel cage. There is no exception for Jeff Hardy as you can see in this video where Hardy faces Raven inside a steel cage and takes one of the hardest crashes on our list.
While this isn't necessarily a crash on Jeff Hardy's part, this does seem to play well into the "and burn" part of this list so we found it fitting to include this nugget from the past. James Storm, who is currently the leader of the revolution, is not unfamilar with using harsh or eccentric weaponry to eliminate his enemies including beer bottles, cowbells, and in this case fire.
