WWE have officially announced that Jeff Hardy will battle Elias this coming Monday on Raw in a unique Guitar on a Pole Match.
According the statement WWE issued on the bout, the rules will follow traditional wars where something has been on a pole and will end with the retrieval of the musical instrument which will then presumably be broken over the head of the loser.
The official WWE statement reads:
Jeff Hardy and Elias are ready for their encore.
The Charismatic Enigma and the “Universal Truth” recording artist are set to meet in a Guitar on a Pole Match this Monday on Raw. Hardy and Elias have exchanged vicious guitar strikes in recent week, but none have hit the right chord just yet. The showdown between the two competitors at WWE Hell in a Cell ended in a disqualification to Hardy after the high-flying Superstar struck Elias with his instrument. Last week in Survivor Series Qualifying action, Hardy and Elias targeted each other with further musical mayhem as more guitar strikes were dished out.

Jeff Hardy and Elias have been at odds since May when ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ was wrongly arrested on Friday Night SmackDown for attempting to mow down Elias in a car.
Despite the assailant clearly being Sheamus who framed Hardy – the pair were locked in a war at the time – Elias targeted the former WWE Champion upon his return on the October 12 Raw when he ambushed Jeff from behind and smashed a guitar over his back.
Weeks of back and forth lead the duo to WWE Hell in a Cell on October 25 where they went to battle in a singles outing which saw the musician prevail via disqualification when Hardy returned the favour with the instrument.
It’s currently unknown whether the Guitar on a Pole Match will be the end of this rivalry or just another string on the bow.
