– In case you haven’t noticed, The Bar — Sheamus and Cesaro — have not appeared on SmackDown LIVE once this entire month. While the tandem still regularly work house shows together, they have not been seen on television since May 29, where they partnered with The Miz in a loss to The New Day in a Six-Man Tag Team Match.
According to the Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer on Twitter, they’re off television because WWE (creative) doesn’t have a program for them at this time
Working all the house shows, just don't have a current program https://t.co/a0A44prYa9

The Bar has been working with The New Day as of late at house shows, and have lost all six matches against them this month.
– The United States Championship will be contested this Tuesday night on SmackDown LIVE.
After exchanging verbal blows over Twitter two weeks ago, the first-ever showdown between Jeff Hardy and Shinsuke Nakamura ended with “The Artist” getting himself disqualified and delivering a fierce post-match assault on his opponent.
In the wake of the contest, both Superstars continued their war of words last week on SmackDown LIVE.
SmackDown LIVE General Manager Paige announced Sunday via Twitter that Hardy will defend the United States Championship against Nakamura.
