CM Punk took to Twitter and mocked the opening angle from this week’s episode of WWE Friday Night SmackDown.
For those of you that missed it, the story is that Jeff Hardy apparently crashed his car into Elias. Elias was taken into an ambulance and the driver supposedly fled the scene.
The police found Hardy in the bushes near a building and the claim was that he smelled like alcohol so he was taken away in handcuffs. The storyline plays off Hardy’s history with substance abuse, which is on par with what WWE has done in the past with other wrestlers.
It looks like the storyline is leading towards the revelation that Hardy was framed and he was not actually drunk driving. The likely culprit in all of this is Sheamus since he has been trashing talking Hardy in recent weeks.
Punk mocked how the police officer (played by an independent wrestler) sniffed the beer (alcohol) bottle that wasn’t spilled while calling out Hardy’s name as if he was calling bingo numbers.
The storyline has already drawn a ton of negative reactions from fans on social media who are not on board with WWE mocking Hardy’s substance abuse history. In fact, his brother Matt took to Twitter to let everyone know how happy he is that he is now with AEW. Click here to read what Matt Hardy said.
