Tonight’s episode of SmackDown Live begins with a 10 bell salute, remembering the lives lost during the tragic 9/11 incident.
JEFF HARDY vs SHINSUKE NAKAMURA
Before the match can begin Jeff Hardy tells the fans he stands before us a better man for overcoming his demons. He added the only way to deal with them is head on and this Sunday he will do just that, claiming Randy has no idea what he is dealing with as he is a daredevil who has no fear. Jeff says he will unleash a lifetime of suffering until Randy fades away and classifies himself as obsolete.
With the bell ringing, Hardy immediately takes the fight to Nakamura on the outside, running and diving from the stairs crushing the champion into the barricade. Back from the break and Nakamura is in control but that doesn’t last long with Jeff’s aggressive side once again taking over, slamming Shinsuke head first into every top turnbuckle around the ring.
The US Champion quickly caught Hardy with a stinging kick to the face but Jeff once again fought back, rocking his opponent with an impressive Slingblade. Hardy then attempted to climb the ropes but a knee to the face followed by a big kick sends Jeff crashing into the barricade. Back from another break now and Hardy is taking the right to Nakamura with a low dropkick.
Shinsuke manages to kick out at two and managed to catch an overzealous Hardy in the corner, lining him up with a running knee to the side of Jeff’s face. Nakamura then attempted the Kinshasa but Hardy avoided and hit the Twist Of Fate before scaling to the top rope to hit a Swanton Bomb… but the Viper pushes Jeff who lands crotch first on the ropes to end this match.
Winner: Jeff Hardy (by DQ)
Following the match, Randy Orton smashes Hardy’s skull off the stairs multiple times before grabbing a steel chair which he wields around the back of his rival. Orton then went for an RKO but Jeff reversed it and got himself the chair and went to town on Orton, hitting a Twist Of Fate and then… a Swanton Bomb!
Backstage, Maryse and The Miz are asked about tonight’s main event as she faces Brie Bella. Maryse says it took Daniel Bryan three years to come back to the ring, yet it took her just five months after being pregnant. She is going to show her daughter why she is the best at punching Brie in the face. Miz then states that the Bella/Bryan marriage is simply just convenience and says if he tries to intimidate Maryse, she will slap the taste out of his mouth.
