#5 Backstage details on SmackDown superstar Drew McIntyre’s incident with Jeff Hardy at WWE Live Event

At a recent live event in Edinburgh, TX, Jeff Hardy displayed some peculiar behaviour as he left his match mid way and vanished into the crowd. Hardy had teamed up with Drew McIntyre to face The Usos.

However, after Jeff Hardy’s unplanned exit from the match, Drew McIntyre was left surprised and confused. Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter has revealed that McIntyre even got on the mic and called Hardy out.

”When he hot tagged out, he just disappeared. Because the match was going on people didn’t notice. After McIntyre hit the Claymore kick to pin Jey, Jeff was nowhere to be found, after disappearing into the crowd. McIntyre even got on the mic and noted we seem to be missing a partner and said, “If found, please point him in our direction.” He then was sent home and didn’t work the show in Corpus Christi the next night,” said Meltzer.

 



Drew McIntyre and Jeff Hardy had become on-screen allies on SmackDown. However, with Hardy’s release from WWE, McIntyre will certainly feel the effect as storyline plans for him will have to change.

SmackDown superstars Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar will be facing each other yet again at WWE’s newest pay-per-view event – Day 1. As per The Observer (Via CSS), ticket sales for Day one have significantly improved since the match between Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar was announced.

“In the Daily Update it’s noted by the Observer that tickets for Day 1 started moving much faster after the announcement of Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar but it’s still unlikely to sell out.”

As per the Observer, the match between both these SmackDown stars will merely serve as a stepping stone for their eventual clash at WrestleMania next year. The report also says that a big finish has been planned for the Universal Championship match.
