On a recent edition of The Wrestling Observer Radio Program, Dave Meltzer confirmed the rumor that WWE’s plans for The Saudi Arabia Golden Jewel Event is for The Undertaker & Kane to team up to take on Shawn Michaels & Triple H. It was also speculated that the announced World Cup would be a singles elimination type tournament, which WWE hasn’t done in a long time especially with their major stars.
There was some speculation that after his Hell in a Cell Match against Randy Orton, WWE would be giving Jeff Hardy some time to recover from his injuries as he has been banged up and they would have explained it with an injury angle. However, Jeff Hardy actually wrestled at a recent SmackDown Live House Show in Oklahoma City so it appears as if he will continue wrestling through his injuries. Hardy teamed up with R-Truth & WWE Champion AJ Styles as they went up against the team of Samoa Joe, Randy Orton & WWE United States Champion Shinsuke Nakamura. The babyfaces picked up the win after Styles pinned Joe following a Phenomenal Forearm.
