Friday Night SmackDown will have a little edge over Monday Night RAW this week as WWE has announced two massive segments for the blue brand this week. Tomorrow’s episode will feature Jeff Hardy addressing the car accident controversy from last week and Daniel Bryan coming face to face with AJ Styles before their Intercontinental Championship match at Backlash.
These segments come in addition to the already announced highlights of the Friday Night SmackDown’s episode which are Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross vs. Sasha Banks & Bayley Tag Team Title match and Braun Strowman addressing his handicap match with John Morrison & The Miz for the universal title.
Jeff Hardy was arrested following a car accident on the last episode of Friday Night SmackDown. Elias got hit by a car and was shown being put into an ambulance. Police officers found Jeff Hardy in the bushes on the side of the building.
A police officer stated that Hardy smelled like the alcohol in the car that was crashed and Hardy was put in handcuffs and arrested. Jeff denied the allegations and claimed that he has been suffering from headaches and one of the reasons why police found him in bushes away from the car.
On the other hand, Daniel Bryan and AJ Styles are the last two competitors in the Intercontinental championship tournament and will have a final showdown before their match at Backlash. The two are very likely to get involved in a brawl rather than staying civil during their final showdown.
