Joe crashes the party.

Tonight, WWE SmackDown Live emanated from the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The night featured the return of "The Man" - SmackDown Live Women's Champion Becky Lynch, AJ Styles sending a message to Daniel Bryan before their WWE Championship match at TLC on December 16th and the celebration of 20 years since Jeff Hardy signed with WWE.

"The Charismatic Enigma" has been with the sports-entertainment company for 20 years and the entire SmackDown locker room came out on stage to celebrate with him.

WWE put together a video package for Hardy which featured some of his greatest and memorable moments including his WWE Championship win from 2008 where he defeated Triple H and Edge in a Triple-Threat match at Armageddon. Jeff's celebration was put on hold as "The Destroyer" Samoa Joe made his way down to the ring and began to insult Jeff by bringing up some of Hardy's hardships in life. Joe made a remark about having a bottle of celebratory champagne around Jeff Hardy would not be the best of ideas among other insults regarding Jeff's controversial past. 


Despite the comments, Jeff Hardy did not let Joe rain on his parade and told Joe if he wanted to go, they can do it in the middle of the ring and Joe pretended to walk towards the ring but he soon turned around and walked to the back while Jeff Hardy continued his celebration.
