WWE superstar Jeff Hardy will be backstage during tonight's Friday Night SmackDown according to PW Insider.

This marks the third week in a row that the former WWE champion has been present for the blue-brand's flagship program. Hardy announced on Tuesday's WWE Backstage that he has been medically cleared to return to action following a leg injury he suffered last year. His current contract with the company was set to expire on March 1st along with his brother Matt, but WWE added the time he missed.

At this time there is no word on whether Hardy will be returning on tonight's show. He did state on Backstage that he's just waiting for the right moment creatively to be plugged back in. You check out those comments in the video above.

SmackDown tonight takes place from the KeyBank Center in Buffalo, New York.
