WWE officials are gearing up for the upcoming Hell in a Cell PPV.
A few matches have been revealed for the upcoming event, as seen below. Sami Zayn vs. Aiden English in a singles match is expected to be added the card. We already know that WWE SmackDown Tag Team Champions The New Day to defend their titles in the Cell against The Usos.
On December 14, 2016, The New Day became the longest reigning tag team champions in WWE history by beating Demolition's 28-year-old record of 478 days with WWE's original World Tag Team Championship and the longest reigning champions for any WWE championship over the last two decades. It was impressive, to say the least.
Their reigns came to an end when they lost to Cesaro and Sheamus four days later after making history. WWE then decided to make some changes and drafted the group to the SmackDown brand in April of this year where they would go on to capture the SmackDown Tag Team Championship as well. The reign didn’t last long as they lost the titles at the SummerSlam pay-per-view event at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York to The Usos.
The WWE Universe was caught off guard when The New Day lost the SmackDown Tag Team Titles at SummerSlam as it was one of the more surprising booking decisions of the weekend.
However, it seems that it was just a move that is all part of a bigger plan and a stepping stone towards being an all-time great tag team. On the September 12 episode of SmackDown Live on the USA Network, Big E and Kingston defeated The Usos in a Sin City Street Fight.
Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that the upcoming tag team title match between The New Day and The Usos seems to be the final match in their program. However, the sports entertainment company may be planning another title change to prolong the storyline even further because of the lack of depth in the tag team division on the blue brand.
If the title were to happen at the upcoming pay-per-view event, many would assume that they will have another match at Survivor Series in November.
The Hell in a Cell pay-per-view event takes place on October 8th, 2017 in Detroit, Michigan at the Little Caesars Arena and will air on the WWE Network and some traditional pay-per-view outlets. This will be an exclusive SmackDown Live brand event.
Although it has yet to be confirmed, the belief is that Shane McMahon vs. Kevin Owens
in a Hell in a Cell match will headline this event while Jinder Mahal vs. Shinsuke Nakamura for the WWE Title will co-main event this show. Here is the updated card:
--- WWE Title Match: Jinder Mahal © vs. Shinsuke Nakamura
--- Hell In A Cell Match: Shane McMahon vs. Kevin Owens
--- SmackDown Tag Team Title Hell In A Cell Match: The New Day © vs. The Usos
--- SmackDown Women’s Title Match: Natalya © vs. Charlotte Flair
