This week's most notable return: United States Champion Jeff Hardy

This week's most notable return, after a long time off TV has been the United States Champion Jeff Hardy. With Jeff holding the United States Championship, he really should be used more often on the weekly television. With him entering into a new rivalry with Shinsuke Nakamura this past Tuesday on SmackDown Live, it looks like they'll be using Jeff more often. Let's hope he is used more often.

Is there someone you wish WWE would use more? Let us know in the comments!
