Jeff Hardy may have revealed the main event for tonight's SmackDown Live.
The year 2017 saw the return of Matt and Jeff Hardy at WrestleMania 33 in what fans have dubbed as one of the greatest moments in WrestleMania history. In their return match the duo went on to capture the RAW Tag Team Championships and capped off their return with a bang. Several months into their run the Hardy hype train was halted as Jeff Hardy suffered a torn rotator cuff during an episode of RAW and was sidelined until the night after WrestleMania 34. Jeff has since moved on to SmackDown Live where he is in the midst of a feud based around the United States Championship with the champion Shinsuke Nakamura but Hardy also has Randy Orton targeting him.
Tonight's SmackDown Live will take place at the Amway Center in Orlando and ahead of the show Jeff spoke with 'WKMG News 6' in Orlando and discussed what it was like for him to return after suffering that torn rotator cuff.
"Its scary at first you know, intimidating. Like every night I’m going, ‘Okay this is the night’. All the little clicks and cracks in there I’m gonna hurt it again. But so far so good man. I’ve had more lower back issues and elbow issues than rotator cuff surgery so, its all good.” Hardy said.
There have been a few matches and segments advertised for tonight's SmackDown Live but Jeff may have revealed the main event for tonight's show when he stated that there will be a six-man tag which will feature him teaming up with AJ Styles and Daniel Bryan and they will be standing across the ring from their respective SummerSlam opponents.

“I predict.. My premonition is that Shinsuke Nakamura is going to get two [Twist Of Fates] and I'm gonna follow those two up with a Swanton Bomb." Jeff continued, "There’s a huge main event. Its a six-man tag--myself, AJ Styles and Daniel Bryan are gonna take on Shinsuke Nakamura, Samoa Joe and the one and only Miz."
Jeff Hardy did share during this interview that he has been dealing with elbow and lower back issues. During a recent interview, Jeff stated that his lower-back problems have prevented him from hitting the "Swanton Bomb" on a consistent basis. To read more on that, click here.
