This week, following SmackDown Live, the General Manager of the blue brand, Paige made it official that WWE United States Champion Jeff Hardy would be battling The Miz in a dark match after the 205 Live taping.
According to various fans reports, Hardy appeared to have injured himself as the US Champion was making his way to the ring. Reports suggest that although he was checked out by a doctor, Hardy seemed to be in pain as he limped to the ring and was also hurting himself during the match.
The bout lasted for 8 minutes and Hardy scored the pinfall by delivering aTwist of Fate and a Swanton Bomb to The Miz.
WWE is yet to comment on Hardy’s possible injury.
No spoilers but Jeff Hardy may well be injured. See what happens with that one but he looked injured for most of the match and the doctor checked him over after the dark match with The Miz. Disappointed not to see Rusev, The Usos or Samoa Joe.
