pretty sure Jeff Hardy injured himself during his entrance for the dark match, was badly limping the whole time.

No spoilers but Jeff Hardy may well be injured. See what happens with that one but he looked injured for most of the match and the doctor checked him over after the dark match with The Miz. Disappointed not to see Rusev, The Usos or Samoa Joe.
