Lots of folks had it pencilled in for Extreme Rules. The next - and hopefully last - match in Jeff Hardy & Sheamus’ feud certainly has a stipulation that would have fit in on last Sunday’s PPV.
WWE opted to hold off, though. So the Bar Fight which has been set-up by weeks of Sheamus attempting to wreck Hardy’s sobriety will take place this week on SmackDown.
We're gonna have ourselves a BAR FIGHT.@JEFFHARDYBRAND and @WWESheamus look to settle their score THIS FRIDAY on #SmackDown at 8/7c on @FOXTV! pic.twitter.com/Cqq6KXWsqR— WWE (@WWE) July 21, 2020
Is this the kind of PPV-level match that can help the blue brand’s TV numbers? You know, the ones Vince McMahon is “not sweating”?
We’ll find out on Friday (July 24).
