Smackdown Live has introduced dream matches as a regular thing on their roster. The Superstar Shakeup benefitted this brand a lot from time-to-time.
We have AJ Styles, Shinsuke Nakamura, Samoa Joe, Shinsuke Nakamura, Jeff Hardy and Daniel Bryan on the same brand at the same time.
So, there’s a lot more to watch it for throughout this upcoming season.
Many have already witnessed some never-before-seen matches on the Smackdown brand. It looks like another such will take place on Tuesday (June 12) night’s episode. It will come live from the FedEx Forum in Memphis, Tennessee.
The current updates from WWE’s official website confirmed that Jeff Hardy will return on Smackdown. He did not make any presence on the main taped show for the last few weeks.
The dark segments following the main show witnessed him in some matches without storylines. We did not get any updates for the United States (US) Championship as well in his absence.

Recently Shinsuke Nakamura shared a picture of Jeff Hardy on social media platform Twitter with himself. He did not provide any caption to it.
But, the man-in-concern surely noticed this and came up with a suitable reply. This started a heated Twitter war between them.
The Smackdown general manager grabbed this opportunity right away. She gave an opportunity to settle their differences inside the ring. So, we will witness Shinsuke Nakamura going one-on-one against Jeff Hardy on tonight’s show.
The stakes for the show are more than high following this announcement.
Here’s the official statement from WWE.com, “The two continued to trade barbs on Twitter, and WWE.com learned that Paige has confirmed a match between the two for Tuesday’s SmackDown LIVE. Will Hardy send Nakamura into Chicago with a loss, or will Nakamura prove that he’s ready to be the last man standing? Find out tonight on SmackDown LIVE at 8/7 C on USA Network!”

Paige is doing a terrific job as the GM of Smackdown Live. She is coming up with innovative ideas ever since getting the appointment on this brand.
The former Divas Champion has already booked a women’s summit and two other packed matches for the show.
So, we expect to witness a packed show tonight from the home-city of Jerry Lawler. This will help to build up the MITB PPV which is just five night away.
