• Reason Behind Jeff Hardy Being Pushed As A Singles Star Instead Of A Tag Team Star

As seen on this week’s episode of RAW, Jeff Hardy defeated Jinder Mahal to win the United States Championship.

The reason behind Jeff Hardy getting a singles push is that Vince McMahon has viewed Jeff as a singles star since 2008, according to DirtySheets.Net.

About a decade ago, Jeff had big merchandise sales as a singles star, second only to John Cena, and this is the reason why Vince McMahon wasn’t happy with Hardy leaving the company in 2009.

Vince feels Jeff can still do big merchandise numbers and that’s why he’s being pushed as a singles competitor, and not being used with his brother, WOKEN Matt Hardy.

With his US Title win on RAW, not only did Jeff become a Grand Slam Champion with this win, but he has now become the only Superstar in WWE history to win the following Championships:

– WWE Championship

– World Heavyweight Championship

– Intercontinental Championship

– United States Championship

– World Tag Team Championship

– RAW Tag Team Championship

– European Championship

– Hardcore Championship

– Light Heavyweight Championship

Hardy will now defend the United States Championship against Mahal at Greatest Royal Rumble.
