Last week on SmackDown LIVE, Jeff Hardy reignited his rivalry against Randy Orton one week after The Viper unleashed a brutal assault on Rey Mysterio. However, just after Hardy dropped Orton with a back suplex on the announce table and ascended the ropes looking to crash down onto The Viper, Samoa Joe suddenly appeared on the TitanTron from a bar, callously mocking The Charismatic Enigma and keeping him distracted long enough for Orton to level his opponent with the RKO for the victory. As Hardy recovered, Joe added insult to injury be mocking Hardy with a “public service announcement” on the dangers of drinking in excess.
In response, WWE.com has now learned that Jeff Hardy will address Samoa Joe’s public service announcement this Tuesday night on the blue brand.
Hardy was the recipient of a Samoa Joe blindside attack at WWE’s live show in Winnipeg, Canada. As he was making his way to the ring, Hardy fell victim to the Coquina Clutch, which rendered the SmackDown Superstar unconscious. Never one to let an opportunity go to waste, Samoa Joe quickly found a microphone, “Jeff Hardy is once again unconscious. Unfortunately your hero has once again let you down and will not be in action tonight, so please Winnipeg remember, drink responsibly.” Samoa Joe gave a thumbs up before making his exit. Hardy did, in fact, compete that evening and defeated Samoa Joe in a singles match.
