WWE announced that Shinsuke Nakamura will defend the United States Championship in the opening match on Tuesday’s Smackdown television show against Jeff Hardy.
Powell’s POV: Technically, the announcement was made by Smackdown general manager Paige via social media. Nakamura hasn’t done much on television lately.
