WWE SmackDown at Sprint Center tonight
By Justin Kendall

CM Punk doesn’t smoke, drink or do drugs. He’s straight edge (even has a Pepsi logo tattooed on his shoulder). Of course, in the world of WWE, he’s the bad guy.

Punk is chasing World Heavyweight Champion Jeff Hardy. It’s a natural feud since Hardy has twice violated the WWE’s "wellness policy" (three strikes and Vince McMahon growls, "You’re fired," for real).

Punk and Hardy will rassle Sunday in a "tables, ladders and chairs" match at SummerSlam. But tonight, at the Sprint Center, Punk teams with the Hart Dynasty (Tyson Kidd and David Hart Smith) against a reunited Jeff and Matt Hardy (long story of brother betraying brother, arson and dog killing here) and John Morrison in the main event of Friday Night SmackDown. Bell time is 6:30 p.m. They’ll also tape tonight’s ECW show, which airs on Syfy at 9 p.m. Then it’s SmackDown, which may be Jeff Hardy’s last appearance on the show for a while (Hardy’s contract is up, and he’s supposedly taking time off).
