Ahead of Sunday's hell in a Cell PPV, Tuesday's episode of Smackdown Live ended with a bang as both Shane McMahon and Kevin Owens took the chance for one last brawl.

The pair will face off in a Hell in a Cell match on Sunday night having established one of the most personal rivalries in WWE right now.

A big change made

They were both advertised for a face to face on Tuesday's show and although Owens was initially reluctant to come to the ring, the two would come to blows anyway.

While McMahon patiently waited in the ring for his opponent, Owens would emerge high up in the crowd and taught Shane.

That would draw Shane up to him the two would fight in the fan area by one of the merchandise stands in the arena.

Their brawl would be meaningful, but it would be the announcement made by McMahon which would grab the attention of Owens.

McMahon revealed a slight rule change for their Hell in a Cell contest as the 'Falls Count Anywhere' stipulation was added.

Meaning that either man can be pinned outside of the ring, outside of the cage or even on top of the cage is a significant rule change as many fans feel that the match will spill outside of the structure.

Meaning that the fight no longer needs to end in the ring will add an extra element to the match - particularly given the high risk dives that McMahon is known for.

One dive from the cage on Owens and McMahon could pin him there and then rather than trying to drag Owens back into the ring.

Fans will surely be hoping that the stipulation change means that ed of the match is guaranteed to end in drama unlike anything they have seen in other matches, but only time will tell.

A big night for Smackdown

Hell in a Cell will be an interesting night for Smackdown Live as it will be the brand's first solo PPV since Summer Slam.

Every Smackdown title will be on the line and despite the main event being the Hell in a Cell match between Owens and McMahon, there will still be some intense clashes.

The WWE Championship contest between Jinder Mahal and Shinsuke Nakamura ill serve as a secondary main event, while the US title match between AJ Styles and Baron Corbin also carries a large amount of anticipation.

Natalya will defend her Women's title against Charlotte while the Usos and the new Day will compete in the second Hell in a Cell match of the event.
