Mick Foley to referee Universal title match at WWE Hell in a Cell


Though he won't be doing so as an active wrestler, Mick Foley will be stepping back inside Hell in a Cell on Sunday.

Foley's appearance on tonight's go-home edition of Raw led to him being announced as the special guest referee for Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman's Hell in a Cell match for the Universal Championship match at Sunday's pay-per-view.

Foley's segment began with him interrupting Elias. The story was that Elias said Foley was never the same after his King of the Ring 1998 Hell in a Cell match against The Undertaker. He called Foley a broken man who's singing the same song he's been singing for the past 20 years and barely remembers the words. Foley responded that he wasn't there to talk about the past and announced that Stephanie McMahon has made him the referee for Reigns vs. Strowman.

"Mick Foley: 20 Years of Hell" will also air on the WWE Network after Sunday's PPV. Foley has been touring a one-man show to mark the 20th anniversary of his Hell in a Cell match against Undertaker, and WWE filmed one of them to air on the Network.
