It was announced today via social media that Jeff Hardy has answered the open challenge that was issued by United States Champion Damian Priest.
Priest vs. Hardy will happen tonight on WWE Monday Night Raw. Tonight’s show is stacked. Dave Meltzer reported over the weekend that this is a reaction to Raw losing to AEW Dynamite in the key demo last week. It’s also worth noting that Monday Night Football returns tonight and Raw usually takes a hit during football season.
The following has been announced for tonight:
– Bobby Lashley will defend the WWE Championship against Randy Orton
– Big E promises to cash in his Money In The Bank briefcase
– Shayna Baszler vs. Raw Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair
– Damian Priest vs. Jeff Hardy for the United States Championship
– Rhea Ripley vs. Natalya
