WWE Smackdown 5/8 Show Preview
It is the final Smackdown before the the Money In The Bank(MITB) pay per view this Sunday. All the participants for both MITB matches have been revealed and they are just days away from competing in the most unique MITB match ever. Smackdown will feature the return of the enigmatic Jeff Hardy this week. Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville will finally go one on one as well on this episode. And finally, Universal Champion Braun Strowman will be face to face with Bray Wyatt just days before their championship match at MITB.
Jeff Hardy Returns!
One of the most exciting superstars in WWE history is back when Jeff Hardy returns to Smackdown this week. Hardy made a brief return in March after being out for nearly a year due to injury. He defeated Baron Corbin in a match on that edition of Smackdown. WWE has been airing various promos of Hardy the last few weeks in a lead up to his return. With television ratings down across the board for WWE, this is the perfect time to inject Hardy’s entertaining character into the show.
Hardy’s first feud upon returning looks to be with Sheamus. Sheamus has been very outspoken about Hardy after WWE has aired his promos on Smackdown weekly. He does not like the attention Hardy is getting and plans to confront him this week. Expect these two to come to blows as Sheamus normally uses his actions instead of his words. A one on one match between these two men could likely be added to the MITB card on Sunday.
Who Is The Mysterious Hacker?
For months now, a mysterious hacker has loomed over Smackdown. Every week, different segments of the show have been “hacked” and clues are given to what the future entails on the blue brand. Most recently, other shows like WWE Backstage have been “hacked” by this mysterious individual/s. Fans everywhere are very curious to know who is behind these “hacks” and it seems like they will be getting answers very soon.
The Hacker has been very busy on social media lately as well. With the ramp up in their involvement of TV and the internet, a reveal of their identity can not be far away. As stated before, with Smackdown losing viewers weekly, surprises from the blue brand can help stir up excitement during these dark times.
