Jeff Hardy vs. Sheamus scheduled for WWE Backlash 2020

That whole thing with Jeff Hardy apparently getting drunk and hitting Elias — causing a bunch of injuries — was all faked, of course. But who was the one who set the devilish plan into motion?

Why it was Sheamus, of course!

Hardy explained during a promo on Friday Night SmackDown this week that he was attacked and, luckily enough, a witness saw the whole thing go down and the guy running out of the car in question had a red hair and red beard.

It was Sheamus all along.

Sheamus responded to this by calling Hardy a “junkie” and they brawled their way into the announcement that they’ll settle their differences in a singles match at the upcoming Backlash pay-per-view on June 14, 2020, from the Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.

Here’s the updated match card:

  • Edge vs. Randy Orton
  • Drew McIntyre (c) vs. Bobby Lashley (WWE championship)
  • Braun Strowman (c) vs. The Miz & John Morrison (Universal championship)
  • Asuka (c) vs. Nia Jax (Raw women’s championship)
  • Jeff Hardy vs. Sheamus
