As first announced by SmackDown Live General Manager Paige via Twitter, Jeff Hardy will defend his United States Championship against Shinsuke Nakamura this Tuesday on SmackDown Live.
The match was made after Hardy and Nakamura had previous matches and interactions on TV during Nakamura’s feud with AJ Styles.
Hardy, who had been dealing with an injury, has seldom been on TV. After winning the US title a few months ago, Hardy seemed to hit a dull period, as he was kept off the Money in the Bank card altogether. Nakamura is coming off his long feud with WWE Champ AJ Styles, and WWE is desperate to find some new competition for him.
Will Tuesday’s match be a start of a longer feud, or just a one–time matchup? We will have to wait and see.
