– As noted, Jeff Hardy replaced AJ Styles on last night’s WWE Mixed Match Challenge episode, teaming with Charlotte Flair to defeat The Miz and Asuka. WWE’s website indicates that the change is not permanent as SmackDown General Manager Paige would not allow Styles to compete following his WWE Title loss to Daniel Bryan, and the post-match attack. WWE has not confirmed that Styles will return to the MMC competition but we will keep you updated. Above is post-match video of Hardy and Flair talking to Dasha Fuentes about teaming up. Hardy said it felt good to help out AJ in his time of need as they also have a history together.
