Originally published at

This week on Friday Night SmackDown, Jeff Hardy and Paige are set to appear on the show from Detroit, Michigan.

Hardy stated last week on WWE Backstage that he has been cleared to return after suffering a leg injury last year that has kept him out of the ring since last April. At the time, Jeff and brother Matt were holding the SmackDown tag titles and vacated the championship due to Jeff’s injury.

During his time away, Hardy was arrested twice and has an upcoming court date next month. Last July, he was arrested for public intoxication and then in October was arrested for DWI in North Carolina. He is set to appear in court on Monday, April 6th, which is the day after WrestleMania 36.

On his appearance on WWE Backstage, Hardy added that after the October arrest he checked into rehab to address his problems.

WWE has also announced that Paige will appear on SmackDown for a segment involving SmackDown women’s champion Bayley.
