Hardy defeats Kennedy in hard-fought match
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- Two of Raw's brightest Superstars waged a classic battle Monday night as Intercontinental Champion Jeff Hardy and Mr. Kennedy attempted to race up the ladder of championship contention.
The Intercontinental Championship was not on the line, but these two stars fought for something more important: pride. In addition, perhaps they were trying to get noticed and considered for a future opportunity at the WWE Championship.
Hardy and Kennedy tore into each other, trading blows in a fast-paced, physical match. For Hardy, who has won Intercontinental and World Tag Team gold multiple times, opportunities at a World Championship have been few and far between. Meanwhile, the cocky Kennedy, a former Mr. Money in the Bank, has always believed he is the future of WWE. He was determined to prove he deserves an opportunity at the WWE Championship.
However, as the Green Bay gladiator aimed to capitalize on a Hardy mistake, his overconfidence cost him a chance to climb further up the championship ranks. The "Rainbow-haired Warrior" missed a Swanton Bomb when Kennedy rolled out of the way. When an exhausted Kennedy fell over Hardy's body, the Intercontinental Champion hooked the loudmouth Superstar's arms and rolled his shoulders to the mat for a surprising pinfall. Watch the video...
Fans at the Van Andel Arena roared their approval as Hardy celebrated and Kennedy glared in disbelief. Mr. Kennedy will have to shake off the disappointment of this temporary setback. Are Kennedy and Jeff Hardy destined to battle again? Perhaps next time, it will be with the high flyer's Intercontinental Championship on the line.
