If you wondered how WWE would keep going with this thing where they keep using Jeff Hardy’s substance abuse issues against him in a storyline, the company answered that right away on Friday Night SmackDown this week:
"You can tell @WWESheamus, I accept." - @JEFFHARDYBRAND— WWE on FOX (@WWEonFOX) July 11, 2020

Miz and Morrison brought this across like it would be Hardy taking on Sheamus in the place he’s most comfortable — get it? — and Hardy made sure to point out the actual idea is to make it like a 2-on-1 handicap match: Hardy vs. Sheamus & alcohol.
The babyface accepted the offer, of course, vowing to defeat both foes as he continues to do what he can to beat his addictions.
Maybe WWE will actually have him win this time.
It wasn’t made clear when exactly this Bar Fight will happen, but Extreme Rules is the next pay-per-view on the schedule.
