While we’re still working to obtain more information, it appears that WWE United States Champion Jeff Hardy may have been injured during, or prior to his match with The Miz tonight at the Smackdown Live television tapings in London, England.
The “Charismatic Enigma” defended his title in a short dark match for the international crowd after cameras stopped rolling, and was visibly limping during both his entrance and the match itself, according to numerous fans in attendance.
It’s unknown whether or not Hardy actually injured himself at the Smackdown tapings, or if he’s just currently banged up to the point where he couldn’t hide it, but we’ve reached out to WWE for comment and will report back as soon as more information becomes available.
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.

Jeff Hardy started limping during his entrance. Might be a knee injury. Match was short, but Hardy finishes it with a Swanton Bomb. That’s it from the #SDLive tapings in London.
