WWE SmackDown Live Results: 5/22 Show Features First-Ever Daniel Bryan/Jeff Hardy Fight

It's Tuesday, which means a new episode of SmackDown Live will air tonight on the USA Network. We already know a few of tonight's match-ups, so let's get into what is expected for the rest of the show.

According to the video above, The New Day will appear on MizTV tonight. The New Day beat The Bar last week to secure a slot in the upcoming Money in the Bank ladder match, so it's likely the trio will announce which member will fight for the briefcase.

There was supposed to be a rematch between Daniel Bryan and Big Cass, but it looks like plans have changed due to Big Cass suffering another injury. Now Bryan will face off against current U.S. Champion Jeff Hardy in a non-title match. The winner will fight Samoa Joe for the final spot in the Money in the Bank match.
