WWE SummerSlam 2018 results: Shinsuke Nakamura defeats absolute madman Jeff Hardy


Jeff Hardy is charismatic, and also an enigma.

Shinsuke Nakamura loves hitting dudes in their twig and two berries.

They had a match for the United States championship at tonight’s (Sun., Aug. 19, 2018) WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view (PPV) at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Hardy did all his usual offense while Nakamura, predictably enough, attempted his patented low blow. He failed to hit it, and Hardy got a two count on a Swanton when Shinsuke reached the bottom rope. So he went back up for another one after a Twist of Fate and Nakamura, knowing it was coming, rolled under the ropes.

So Hardy, the absolute madman, did a Swanton Bomb on the apron. Nakamura moved. This man, with an injured back, who spent two months with his hand asleep due to nerve issues, went ahead with a spot like that.

Not long after, he was hit with Kinshasa and pinned.
