Get caught up to speed with the latest news on Tyson Fury, Bordeaux , Jeff Hardy and More!
Tyson Fury At Crown Jewel ?
On of the biggest moments of SmackDown on Friday was the altercation between boxer Tyson Fury and Braun Strowman. Fury will have a live microphone tonight on RAW, but the story line looks to be apart of a Fury temperance at Crown Jewel. It is also being reported that ESPN and FOX worked together on the deal with the goal of promoting Fury vs. Deontay Wilder and the deal to get Fury on SmackDown was agreed to on Monday. The Fury vs. Wilder fight is scheduled for December 7 in Saudi Arabia.
With a huge prize fight coming up, I cannot see Fury having any physical activity with WWE. Most likely, this is what it is, and its cross promotion to promote the Fury/Wilder fight.
A Smoke Show Coming To WWE
Get ready, because the Smoke Show herself is coming to WWE. According to Dave Meltzer and the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Scarlett Bordeaux has possibly signed with the WWE after pulling out of various independent dates she had booked.
Scarlett Bordeaux was very underutilized while a member of the Impact roster, and I think there is so much potential for her in NXT or WWE.
FOX reaches deal with Sling TV/Dish Network
In some exciting news for WWE and fans of SmackDown, a deal has been reached by FOX and Dish Network/Sling TV to bring FOX and sister channels back on air. The disagreements caused fans with those services to miss the debut of SmackDown on FOX.
Many were worried that there was a possibility the FOX would not air on these service providers for some time, so for wrestling fans, it’s great news that an agreement was reached.
Jeff Hardy Arrested For DUI
According to TMZ, Jeff Hardy was arrested in Moore County, North Carolina and booked for driving while impaired as well as driving on a revoked license. Law enforcement told the outlet Hardy’s BAC was registered at .25, which more than three times the legal limit. Matt Hardy issued a statement on Jeff:
Since so many have asked me about my brother tonight-I love my brother & want him to be happy & healthy. I’ve expressed that to him as much as I can. Jeff has to make his decisions about his life.
I have to focus on my 2 boys & soon to arrive son. I can only control MY actions.

Jeff Hardy’s substance abuse issues are well documented. Here is hoping that he is able to get the help he needs if he has problems.
