WWE Intercontinental Champion Jeff Hardy will defend his title in a triple threat ladder match at the upcoming Clash Of Champions: Gold Rush event.
Jeff Hardy Challenged Styles And Zayn Following A Singles Match Between The Two
On the latest episode of Smackdown Live, AJ Styles faced Sami Zayn in a singles encounter. The competitive match ended with Zayn’s finishing move, The Helluva Kick, was ducked by Styles, and the former somehow managed to roll the later up for a pinfall event.
The referee noticed Zayn holding the tights of Styles for an unfair advantage and did not count the fall. Suddenly, Styles executed a pinfall attempt from behind which led to his victory.
After a bit of after-match shenanigans, Jeff Hardy came out and attacked both Zayn and Styles. He took a microphone that he was sick and tired of the Intercontinental title situation. He was sick of being called a cheat and tired of being called a fraud. Hardy went on to challenge them both to a triple threat ladder match at Clash of Champions.
Hardy has been on a rivalry against both men in recent weeks, with Styles eyeing another chance on the Intercontinental Championship and Zayn claiming that he is still the rightful champion as he did not lose it in a match but was stripped off it.
Hardy, alongside his brother Matt, worked as enhancement talents for the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) from 1994, and were signed to full-time contracts in 1998. They gained fame in the tag team division, partly due to their participation in Tables, Ladders and Chairs matches. With the addition of Lita, the team became known as Team Xtreme and continued to rise in popularity. Alongside Matt, he has held twelve world tag team championships between WWE, TNA and ROH.
Hardy has had success as a singles wrestler as well, capturing his first of six world championships, the WWE Championship in 2008 and going on to hold WWE’s World Heavyweight Championship twice and the TNA World Heavyweight Championship three times.
He has also won the WWE Intercontinental Championship five times, the WWE Hardcore Championship three times and the WWE European, Light Heavyweight, and United States Championships once each.
He is the 18th Triple Crown Champion and 9th Grand Slam Champion in WWE history, one of five men to complete both WWE Grand Slam formats, and one of two to win all original Grand Slam titles. Between WWE, Impact, and ROH, Hardy has held 29 total championships.
