WWE’s Jeff Hardy named GRAND SLAM superstar after bagging US Championship title

The wrestling favourite picked up the belt following the Superstar Shake-up announcement. 

Raw General Manager Kurt Angel kicked off the event before he was interrupted by Jinder Mahal who made the switch from SmackDown. 

But the Olympic gold medalist was not in the mood to take any disrespect from the Canadian and told him his title was immediately being put on the line.

As soon as the announcement was made, the Charismatic Enigma made his way to the ring as fans cheered him on.

Jinder Mahal put Jeff Hardy through his paces, dealing an impressive amount of damage early on. 

But, the fan favourite quickly turned the tables and landed his Swanton Bomb and pinned Jinder Mahal to win the bout. 

It is the first time the former WWE Champion has won the United States Championship. 

With the win he has joined the ranks of WWE Grand Slam legends.

The Charismatic Enigma assured fans over the past few months that he would be back in time for the Showcase of the Immortals.
