During the broadcast of the last episode of Friday Night SmackDown, Jeff Hardy made his return to action many months after he was on leave due to a knee injury. The Charismatic Enigma faced King Corbin and managed to win by the count of three after applying the Swanton Bomb.
Before going up to the corner and as usual, he applied the “Twist of Fate” movement. However, Michael Cole mentioned it as “The Twist Of Fury” and it was not a mistake. Apparently Jeff Hardy’s signature move will be named like this from now on.
This change would not be due to the renewal of the image that WWE wants to do with Jeff, but for a matter of rights. The “Twist of Fate” patent is owned by Matt Hardy and that would be the real reason for the change. It should be remembered that the two brothers use the same movement. Matt Hardy ended his WWE contract on March 1 and his departure would have prompted these kinds of changes.
Jeff Hardy was interviewed by Kayla Braxton after his return and revealed a new tattoo. “It’s good to be back, and by the way, this is the 2020 version of Jeff Hardy,” he said as he turned around to show his new tattoo on his back. “I started it in July and I couldn’t finish it because it was torture to do it, but this is good enough. I’ve always wanted a piece on my back and here it is.”
