Smackdown opened this week with a video package that recapped last week’s hit & run angle with Jeff Hardy and Elias. We saw clips from the main event for the finals of the Intercontinental Title tournament between Sheamus and Daniel Bryan. Hardy returned to interfere and thus Bryan gained the upper-hand to pick up the win.
Jeff Hardy came out to reveal the truth, on the latest edition of Smackdown. He recalled passing all the tests that the police department threw at him. Then an eye-witness confirmed that the car accident was a plan of somebody who had red hair and beard that was an indication towards Sheamus. The music hit and Sheamus soon came out on the ramp.
They brawled for a while before Sheamus took the upper-hand by hitting the Brogue Kick on Jeff Hardy. He then thrashed Hardy for a few times into the Plexiglas barriers to stand tall. Following this altercation, the singles contest between the two of them was confirmed,
The 2020 WWE Backlash pay-per-view will take place on June 14, reportedly from the closed-set WWE Performance Center in Orlando.
