The Hardys have cameras following them around at different promotions and the footage from their matches will be airing on episodes of Impact Wrestling. Recently, Matt and Jeff Hardy defeated Super Crazy and Psicosis to capture the Crash World Tag Team Championships at Auditorio Municipal in Tijuana, Mexico.
There was one small problem. TNA received a cease and desist letter from Lucha Underground because the referee that was working in that match is under contract to them and cannot appear on another promotion’s TV show. TNA had to blur out the referee’s face. They didn’t have an option in the matter because they would face legal action. Footage from the match (with the referee blurred) can be seen below.

So petty, but TNA has been just as petty in the past and also made that huge mistake with Hernandez, so they're getting what they deserve.  Besides, everyone knows that refs = money.  Just ask James Beard.

Funny, was switching channels tonight and actually watched that match and saw the ref with the blurred face. I just assumed he didn't agree to appear on the tape so they had to do it.

I was disappointed that they didn't actually show the match, just a couple of clips.  Most of it was backstage comedic skits with Vanguard 1 and Konnan (who I can't believe was used here again after the way his relationship with TNA ended).  I did think it was funny when Konnan said to bootleg the shit out of anything to do with the Hardys and take advantage of them being stupid enough to work for free.

TNA should experiment with blurring their entire show sans Maria, lol...
