With WWE's Hell In A Cell pay-per-view event taking place next week, the company has an intriguing number of matches lined up for the night.

With several WWE titles on the line, the WWE Universe certainly has a lot to look forward to ahead of the event which takes place on Sunday, October 25th live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Bad decision 

As Wrestling News Co. have reported, however, WWE recently announced a change at Hell In A Cell which will not please many of its followers.

What will undoubtedly be an intriguing tag team match, Randy Orton and Dean Ambrose versus on Luke Harper and Braun Strowman, has been downgraded off the main card.

With four big names involved in this match, WWE's decision to move it to the pre-show instead of keeping it on the main card for the night is disappointing to say the least.

With the match originally being advertised as part of the main card, it is unclear why WWE decided to move it to the kick-off show instead.

Although his involvement in pay-per-view events has been criticised after constantly being pitted against Sheamus in an average singles match, this news comes as a huge blow for Randy Orton.


Even though his matches with The Celtic Warrior did become repetitive, at least they were on the main card for the night. 

Orton is a WWE Superstar with a huge amount of experience as well as being one who still possesses a strong fan base, who will surely be frustrated by the company's choice for Hell In A Cell.

Despite the confusion surrounding this decision, a look at the current match card for the pay-per-view event next Sunday night proves that WWE had little choice in moving a match to the pre-show.

Exciting card 

Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker will battle it out in an exciting encounter inside the cell, with Roman Reigns also facing Bray Wyatt inside the steel structure.

Elsewhere, WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins will take on Kane for the most coveted belt in the business while Charlotte looks to defend her WWE Divas Championship Title against Nikki Bella.

In another Championship match, current Tag Team Champions The New Day will once again take on none other than The Dudley Boyz.

As if these title matches were not exciting enough, Kevin Owens will face Ryback as the former aims to hold onto his Intercontinental Championship belt.

With the majority of the card being for a WWE title and the rest being contested inside the cell therefore, Orton and Ambrose against Harper and Strowman does seem the easiest option to move to the pre-show.

That said, there is no reason why WWE could not have listed a standard singles match for the pre-show as is often the way, instead of somewhat wasting huge talent by moving this big-name bout to the kick-off show.
