THE WWE were forced to remove Jeff Hardy throwing URINE over Sheamus from a SmackDown TV taping “after complaints from Fox”.
Hardy has been feuding with Sheamus which led to a match at the Backlash pay-per-view.
But before that Sheamus demanded the tag team legend take a drug test before they signed their contract and proceeded to goad him
In a bizarre segment, Hardy told his rival, “You’re really having a blast with this aren’t you?
“You know another classic saying comes to mind – sometimes it’s better to be p***ed off than p***ed on.”
Hardy then throws a large glass of urine over Sheamus, before Hardy signed the contract.
The move did not go down well with WWE broadcaster’s Fox, according to to Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer.
Fox bosses said the segment violated their Standards and Practices and as a result the moment was cut from SmackDown’s airing on the West Coast.
Sheamus went on to win the match at Backlash, and with Hardy’s WWE contract running up fans fear the p***-poor angle with the Celtic Warrior will be his last with the promotion.

One said: “If Jeff Hardy decides to leave WWE after his contract is up, I can’t blame him. This whole storyline has just been so disrespectful to him.”
Another said: “This Jeff Hardy storyline is so embarrassing and tasteless.”
One added: “Considering this is likely Jeff Hardy’s last WWE run I doubt he wants to be in p*ss throwing segments.”
