SmackDown has been airing videos showing the journey of Jeff Hardy in recent weeks. The Charismatic Enigma has had a troubled past and is on his way to redeem himself from the mistakes he has made. He and his brother Matt, together as The Hardy Boyz, are trailblazers when it comes to the tag team division and have gone on to achieve individual success as well.
After returning to WWE at WrestleMania 33, they went on to win the RAW Tag Team Championships on the very same night. They also won the tag team titles on SmackDown but had to relinquish the titles as Jeff Hardy suffered a knee injury that sidelined him for a long time.
While Matt Hardy left the company to join AEW, Jeff made his return to the Blue brand on the March 13th episode this year and defeated King Corbin.
Jeff Hardy and Bayley on SmackDown
Currently, Bayley is in a feud with Tamina and the two will be facing off at the Money in the Bank PPV with the SmackDown Women's Championship on the line. The growing friction between Bayley and Sasha Banks is also one of the subplots developing on SmackDown and we may see these two rekindle their storied rivalry.
Jeff Hardy is scheduled to return next week and has caught the attention of Sheamus. The Celtic Warrior is not happy with people talking about The Charismatic Enigma and has revealed he will present next week when Hardy returns. These two men could be involved in a match at MITB as well.
