Shinsuke Nakamura is just days away from challenging AJ Styles for the WWE Championship at the Money In The Bank pay-per-view. However, he will need to get through The Charismatic Enigma before he can worry about his match on Sunday.
WWE has announced that Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Jeff Hardy will happen this week on Smackdown Live. They’ve been wrestling each other at the live events but this will be their first time wrestling each other on television.
Their mini-feud started on Twitter when Nakamura shared a photo of himself with Hardy. The United States Champion responded and said that Nakamura should wait a week so he could post of AJ Styles as the Last Man Standing at the MITB PPV.

As noted earlier, Jeff Hardy has been reportedly working with a pinched nerve and numbness in his fingers but he is working through it. He has yet to be added to the MITB PPV but that could change on Tuesday night.
