Extreme Rules Bar Fight, Grudge Matches & more announced on WWE Smackdown

A gimmick match and some grudge matches will be seen as a special attraction as WWE continues to run Raw, SmackDown, and PPV tapings at the Performance Center.

A Bar Fight has been announced for Extreme Rules where Jeff Hardy will compete against Sheamus in a rematch from Backlash. Hardy appeared on a MizTV segment during this week’s SmackDown on FOX to accept a challenge laid down from Sheamus via The Miz and John Morrison.

Although it was an insulting stipulation for Jeff Hardy who’s been fighting with alcoholism, he accepted the challenge while looking forward to putting an end to Sheamus, once and for all.

He admitted his addiction and wanted to be a ‘beacon of light’ to people who are also struggling with past demons, proving that there is hope if you can stay sober. There’s no confirmation on how the Bar Fight will go down. Miz joked that Hardy should have a “home field advantage” hinting that the match might take place in a real bar, itself.

The 2020 edition of “The Horror Show at Extreme Rules” pay-per-view will go down on July 19 from the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. Below-given is the updated card of the show following SmackDown.
