• Update On Top SmackDown Star’s Injury Status
As we noted before, SmackDown Live’s United States Champion Jeff Hardy might have suffered an injury during a dark match with The Miz after this week’s 205 Live tapings (which took place after the SmackDown Live tapings).
Below is the possibly the spot where Hardy might have injured himself:

It looks like the injury isn’t as serious as originally thought as Hardy worked a WWE Live Event after this in Liverpool and went on to successfully defend the United States Championship against Rusev.
Slice Wrestling also noted that Hardy’s injury isn’t serious and he won’t miss any ring time.
