Coming into Cyber Sunday, Jeff Hardy was not in an enviable position. As the reigning Intercontinental Champion, he was forced to enter the ring to defend his gold without knowing who his opponent would be. The uncertainty and inability to strategize for the challenger has cost many in Jeff's position before, but on this night, it was a different story.

There was much speculation as to who Hardy would face. Seconds after he entered the ring, it was revealed that his opponent was to be fellow fan-favorite and former Intercontinental Champion Carlito.   

All day Sunday, WWE.com followed Jeff Hardy as he prepared for his unique match, and many second guessed his tactics. However, Carlito learned that Jeff knew exactly what he was doing, because a Swanton Bomb secured the victory, and the retention of his beloved gold.
