The Superstar Shakeup edition of tonight's WWE SmackDown opened up with new WWE United States Champion Jeff Hardy coming from RAW to the blue brand. He defeated Shelton Benjamin in the non-title opener.
As noted, Hardy won the title from new RAW Superstar Jinder Mahal on Monday's show. Mahal vs. Hardy has been announced for the April 27th Greatest Royal Rumble event in Saudi Arabia and the winner will go on to face Randy Orton at the May 6th WWE Backlash pay-per-view
