WWE Friday Night Smackdown Results:
— The show started with the contract signing between Sheamus and Jeff Hardy. Sheamus was accompanied to the ring by a doctor and a bunch of security guards carrying a black privacy screen. Jeff Hardy came out by himself. Sheamus insisted that Hardy take a urine test to prove he’s not on drugs. Hardy spoke emotionally about struggling with his addiction, and agreed to the test. With the doctor supervising, Jeff went behind the screen and filled a cup with urine. Sheamus continued to belittle Hardy while the doctor took a sample for the test, and then Jeff threw the cup of urine in Sheamus’s face.
— After a commercial, Sheamus was seen washing his face, when the doctor came in and told him that Jeff Hardy passed the test.
