WWE News: Two new matches announced for Hell In A Cell
Hell In A Cell 2016 might just be history in the making
Two new title matches were announced for Hell In A Cell on today's SmackDown Live PPV, No Mercy. The Raw PPV which is scheduled for October 30th, 2016 at TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts will now have Kevin Owens defending his Universal Championship against Seth Rollins and Sasha Banks defending the Raw women's title against the former champion Charlotte.
There were rumours that for the first time WWE was planning on put a women's fight under the Hell In A Cell stipulation and this might just happen considering there is enough time left till the PPV.
Sasha won the Women's title at the main event of Raw on Oct 3rd in LA, California, it was the first ever main event featuring the women's division and was easily one of the best moves by the red brand in recent times considering how rapidly their ratings have been plummeting.
The feud between the two goes back to WrestleMania 32 when WWE unveiled the brand new 'Women's Championship' and declared that it would the women's division would no longer be termed as 'diva's division.
Charlotte won the inaugural championship match and continued her reign for a strong 113 days. Since then, the title has changed hands thrice, with both the wrestlers having held the belt twice. The Raw PPV will be live from Sasha's hometown of Boston in Massachusetts and will definitely raise the hype level a notch higher.
The home crowd would love to see their champion defend the title in 'The Devil's Favourite Playground' and the match, although not as the main event, will go down in the history of WWE. Both the superstars have great chemistry and have fought on numerous occasions either one on one or in multi-women matches.
This hate filled feud promises to be a cracker!
Red brand's top babyface, Seth Rollins will also look to upset the current champion, Kevin Owens. The WWE has done a decent job in promoting Owens as a heel and with Hunter releasing the strings from his once favourite puppet a feud between The Architect and Triple H might be on the cards after Hell In A Cell.
Owens has carried the heel character quite well and with Jericho on his side, WWE will look to prolong Owens' reign as the champion but at the same time will have to ensure that the talent of Rollins isn’t underutilised.
Here's the updated match card for Hell In A Cell:
- Roman Reigns vs Rusev (Hell In A Cell match for the United States Championship)
- Kevin Owens vs Seth Rollins (Universal Championship)
- Sasha Banks vs Charlotte (Raw Women's Championship)
