As seen below, SmackDown General Manager Paige has announced WWE United States Champion Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Jeff Hardy for this week's opening match on SmackDown from the Cajundome in Lafayette, Louisiana.
Below is the updated line-up for this week's blue brand show:
* WWE United States Champion Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Jeff Hardy in the non-title opener
* The Bar vs. Rusev Day to determine new #1 contenders for SmackDown Tag Team Champions The New Day at Hell In a Cell
* R-Truth vs. Andrade "Cien" Almas
A good "soul-cleansing" is nice every now and again. So I'll give you that opportunity....— PAIGE (@RealPaigeWWE) September 10, 2018
