Matches Added To Hell In A Cell

On tonight’s SmackDown Live, we found out that there will be at least two Hell In A Cell matches at the upcoming PPV on October 8th.

The main event of the show will feature Jinder Mahal defending his WWE World Title against Shinsuke Nakamura in the Cell. I am guessing this is being done so that The Singh Brothers can’t interfere like they are prone to do in all of Mahal’s bouts.

The second match that was announced is Shane McMahon vs Kevin Owens in the Cell. Vince McMahon made the match on SmackDown Live tonight before getting utterly destroyed by Owens (it was glorious).

As for those wondering why Shane McMahon is in a program with Kevin Owens, it’s being reported that Vince thinks his son is a big attraction and can boost business by stepping into the ring and having a match with a top star. Shane is also required to wrestle at least twice per the terms of his WWE contract.

Backstage News On The NXT Women’s Title

It’s being reported that the winner of the Mae Young Classic (and as we all now know, Kairi Sane defeated Shayna Baszler in the finals tonight) will get a future title shot.

At this time, it appears that the new NXT Women’s Champion will be determined in with a multi-woman match. No date or indication if the match will take place on a weekly NXT show or if it will happen at a TakeOver special.
