Judgement Day 2009: World Heavyweight Championship (HQ)
After defeating John Cena at Backlash, it didn’t take long for World Heavyweight Champion Edge to find out he would be defending his gold against the high-flying Jeff Hardy at Judgment Day. On the first SmackDown after Backlash, Jeff Hardy won a No. 1 Contender Fatal-4-Way Elimination Match against formidable foes, Kane, Chris Jericho, and Rey Mysterio in Madison Square Garden. The victory officially gave Hardy the opportunity for a match with The Rated-R Superstar. And on that same night in The Garden, Hardy delivered a Twist of Fate and Swanton Bomb to Edge, who found himself in a vulnerable position after losing a non-title match to CM Punk. Hardy has made it clear. He wants gold – something that was taken from him at Royal Rumble by none other than Edge, after a shocking betrayal from his own brother, Matt Hardy. At Backlash, Jeff finally got revenge on his brother by winning their emotion-charged “I Quit" Match. Now, Hardy has set his sights on the world champion. Can Edge find a way to beat Hardy like he did Cena at Backlash, or will The Charismatic Enigma ride a wave of momentum into Judgment Day and leave with gold around his waist?
