Jeff Hardy, Daniel Bryan/AJ Styles Segments Announced For 6/5 WWE SmackDown

Jeff Hardy will address the series of events that led to his "arrest" last week.

WWE announced that Hardy will appear on the June 5 edition of SmackDown, where he will tell his side of the story of what transpired on the May 29 episode of SmackDown. Hardy would eventually be released and attack Sheamus at the end of the night.

From WWE:

A golden opportunity was taken from Jeff Hardy last week after he was detained at the scene of a hit-and-run accident that left Elias injured in the WWE Performance Center parking lot and resulted in his removal from the Intercontinental Championship Tournament. The Charismatic Enigma reemerged that night, however, to spoil Sheamus’ return into the field and attack The Celtic Warrior.

Now, Hardy is ready to tell his side of the story after last week’s shocking developments.

What will the iconic Superstar have to say, and will his rival Sheamus be far behind?

It was also announced that AJ Styles and Daniel Bryan will meet face-to-face this week before their Intercontinental Championship match taking place on June 12. The two are the finalists of an eight-man tournament to crown a new champion that began weeks ago.

From WWE:

Daniel Bryan and AJ Styles took very different paths to the Intercontinental Championship Tournament Finals, but they are the last two competitors remaining in what was an extremely impressive field.

Bryan chose to earn his spot in the championship round by defeating Sheamus in a grueling semifinal matchup. The Phenomenal One embraced the “work smarter, not harder” mantra by accepting a bye into the title match.

Will the two decorated competitors stay civil, or will the allure of championship gold set the stage for a more brutal title showdown?

Already confirmed for SmackDown is a WWE Women's Tag Team Title Match between the current champions Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross against the team of SmackDown Women's Champion Bayley & Sasha Banks.
