Jeff Hardy’s match for this year’s SummerSlam has already been announced and will see him fight Shinsuke Nakamura for the United States Championship, the title that he lost back at Extreme Rules.
Hardy has only been back in WWE for the past year and a half after returned alongside his brother Matt Hardy at WrestleMania 33 where they were able to win the RAW Tag Team Championship.
It’s been an interesting year for Hardy, who was out of action with a torn rotator cuff at the end of last year, and finally, The Charismatic Enigma has been able to share his thoughts on making a return to the company following injury.
The former United States Champion recently spoke to Click Orlando where he was able to open up about his fears when he returned to the ring following his injury back in October.
“It was scary at first, very intimidating,” Hardy said via WrestlingInc. “Like, every night ‘okay, this is the night.’ All those little clicks and cracks in there, I’m gonna hurt it again. So far so good man, I’ve had more lower back issues and elbow issues than from the rotator cuff surgery.”
Jeff was able to return with his brother Matt and also spoke about what it was like to return to the company after so many years away and still be alongside his brother.
“It all worked out because we came back because we wanted to finish where we started which is in the WWE. So it’s exciting to still be 40-years-old and still painting my face and having good matches and feeling very healthy. I’m just very blessed and lucky to be here.”
