The latest episode of WWE SmackDown was highlighted by former WWE Champion’s address to Daniel Bryan and the 20th anniversary of the ‘charismatic enigma’, Jeff Hardy.
AJ Styles fired shots at the current WWE Champion, Daniel Bryan stating he wasn’t present for the SmacDown episode and was probably busing watching RAW, after losing to Brock Lesnar.
Styles asserted that he hated losing and the last 14 days had been more difficult for him than the 371 days as champion.
He went on to challenge Daniel Bryan in the episode and said that the title belongs to him.
SmackDown paid tribute to one of their veterans and most decorated stars in the roster, Jeff Hardy.
The entire roster and fans gave him a standing ovation and chanted his name, following which he extended his thanks and baffled at how he would do the things he did. Jeff Hardy has a reputation of fearless and risk-taker, who does not back out from delivering manoeuvres which are dangerous and could land up with him being injured.
However, the party was spoiled by a familiar face in Samoa Joe, who was also with Hardy at his time in TNA wrestling company.
Samoa Joe insisted that he does not believe in second chances, where he hasn’t had his first and despite being stopped by Shane Mc Mahon, he went on to thrash talk hardy.
Hardy challenged him to a match but Joe walked away, which could set up a match at the upcoming pay-per-view, TLC.
