Jeff Hardy (w/ Matt Hardy) vs. Cesaro (w/ Sheamus)

Result: Jeff Hardy defeated Cesaro via pinfall

Rating: 3.0 out of 5 stars

Cesaro vs. Jeff Hardy is the kind of match you don’t know you want until you get it, and then you want it again and again.

Think about it: What is Jeff known for? Doing crazy, ridiculous things. And what is Cesaro known for? Doing crazy, ridiculous feats of strength. If you put the two of them together, Cesaro might throw Jeff around the ring just to see how far Jeff will fly to sell it.

And there were definitely a few spots like that in this one. Cesaro hitting the M Bison springboard uppercut had Jeff selling like he got shot. It was beautiful, honestly.

It might not have been the perfect match – Cesaro taking the Twist of Fate like it was a Stunner was awkward – but it furthered the story. I’m going out on a limb saying that next week we get Matt vs. Sheamus, because WWE.

Side note: Did anyone else catch Matt at ringside saying, “Come on, Nero,” or something to that effect? I’m telling you, the re-breaking of the Hardy Boyz is coming, and I can’t wait for it.

Those Looked Like Some Good Crackers

You know Braun Strowman is an intimidating character when Rhyno drops his crackers at the sight of the monster. What else is he supposed to put that Cheeze Wiz on?
