Jeff Hardy Talks Big Win Against Sheamus, Smackdown Viewership
- On last night's SmackDown, Jeff Hardy picked up a victory over Sheamus to move on in the semis of the WWE Intercontinental Championship Tournament.

Afterwards, Hardy spoke to WWE about wanting to add a title run to his comeback story.

"Wow, a fifth Intercontinental Championship sounds amazing, it sounds surreal," Hardy said. "I mean, for me, to accomplish that after everything I've been through the last year. That would be the icing on the cake and possibly the coolest thing to happen to me at 42 years of age. So, I'm hoping it happens."

- Friday's WWE SmackDown drew an average of 2.040 million viewers in the overnight ratings, according to Showbuzz Daily. Hour one drew 2.076 million viewers, then hour two went down to 2.003 million viewers. WWE continues to take place from a closed set at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando.
