Two weeks ago on WWE Smackdown Live, the “Charismatic Enigma” Jeff Hardy faced off against the Shinsuke Nakamura for the first time ever. The two had a great back-and-forth match, but just when the U.S. Champion looked to have the bout put away, the “King of Strong-Style” hit him with an illegal low blow to end their conflict in disqualification.
Last Tuesday night, Hardy called out Nakamura in a cryptic backstage promo and brought back his signature, ever-evolving face paint that has helped make him one of WWE’s most popular superstars ever. You can check out the full video above.
Blue brand General Manager Paige has officially announced that Jeff Hardy will defend the WWE United States Championship against Nakamura this Tuesday night on Smackdown Live.
