The latest in the on-going Cesaro/Dolph Ziggler saga was unveiled on Main Event last night as Cesaro challenged Ziggler for one more Intercontinental Championship match at next Sunday's Hell in a Cell.

Last time the two met one-on-one there was a lot of controversy surrounding the outcome. Cesaro had just won a number one contenders battle royal a few moments before and was then put into the match with Ziggler to see if he could walk out with the title on the September 26th edition of Smackdown.

Ziggler went for the Famouser towards the end of the match but Cesaro countered it and instead it was turned into a pinning combination and Ziggler got the win, this was only because the referee hadn't seen that Cesaro had his hand on the bottom rope, meaning he shouldn't have continued the three count. 

Cesaro was unimpressed after the match and during the following episode of Raw and since the two have only met in tag team action, but that being said, Cesaro seems overly confident about a challenge that is still yet to be accepted, as he promised to become the new Intercontinental Champion and followed Main Event by Tweeting: "Here's my post #MainEvent tweet. Hey @HEELZiggler how about stepping up (you know, instead of showing off) and giving me my #ICTitle rematch."


The response from Ziggler will likely be seen Monday Night on Raw, as Smackdown was taped before Main Event on Tuesday night and there was no mention of the challenge, unless Ziggler responds to the Tweet.

This would be the four match announced for Hell in a Cell after WWE already announced the blockbuster main event of former team mates Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose colliding inside Hell in a Cell whilst old foes Randy Orton and John Cena also go one on one at the pay per view and the sisters at war will finally step in the ring together as they are set to go toe-to-toe with the loser becoming the winners assistant.

There was a segment filmed between the two for Monday's episode of Raw but it wasn't aired, WWE may have decided to leave it a week and let the rivalry continue, but the match is now pretty much locked in for next Sunday night and the first title match of the event could be announced on Monday if Dolph accepts the challenge.
