Jeff Hardy proved he's still everyone's favourite maniac at WWE SummerSlam

SummerSlam 2018 was last night and the WWE's biggest party of the summer had its fair share of wow moments.

From Roman Reigns finally beating Brock Lesnar to become WWE Universal Champion, to Ronda Rousey's title win over Alexa Bliss, there were strap changes galore as well as some great wrestling and an incredible heel turn from Becky Lynch.

But something flew under the radar from Sunday's show - the efforts of one Jeff Hardy.

SummerSlam Super Spot

We haven't seen Jeff Hardy have a decent pay-per-view match in a long time, but the 11-minute match with Shinsuke Nakamura for the United States Championship was nice to see and a good starting spot.

But Jeff won't have many more chances if he keeps up his crazy antics. With momentum in his favour, Hardy went for an insane Swanton Bomb attempt onto a prone Nakamura. It ended badly.

Shinsuke moved out of the way, leading Jeff to take a full back bump from the top rope onto the hard, unforgiving apron.

Hitting the hardest part of the ring can't have felt good. And if he wants to have a few more years wrestling in the WWE, then Hardy has to rein it in. Otherwise, things could turn out badly, just like they have for Matt.

Look at Matt

One thing that Jeff absolutely has to do is look at the state his brother Matt is in at the moment. After winning the RAW tag team championships with Bray Wyatt a few months ago, the delightful duo have been forced to give up the gold.

That's all because of Matt's current injuries that have reached such an extent that he needs more work doing to repair his body.

Hardy revealed on Twitter that his back and pelvis are apparently fusing together after years of bumps and bruises, pointing out that one move, in particular, exacerbated it more than any other.

Matt is now going through extensive treatment and rehab, during which he'll also be shadowing WWE producers, as he looks to move from an in-ring performer to a behind-the-scenes guy over the next year or so.

Jeff has to start playing it smart. That begins with his upcoming feud against Randy Orton.
