Roman Reigns vs. Rey Mysterio confirmed for WWE Hell in a Cell


Roman Reigns and Rey Mysterio inside Hell in a Cell is official for next Sunday.

WWE confirmed this afternoon that the two will meet at the pay-per-view, which takes place on June 20. Paul Heyman, in a promo that took place on Talking Smack, accepted the Universal title match on behalf of Roman Reigns. Mysterio had issued the challenge on SmackDown but attacked Reigns before he could respond.

Mysterio and Reigns started their feud on last week’s SmackDown, when Reigns attacked Mysterio and his son Dominik after they looked to defeat the Usos for a second time on the same show to retain the SmackDown Tag Team titles. Reigns attacked Dominik after he attacked Rey, laying them both out.

On Friday, Reigns cut off Rey when Dominik came back with a kendo stick. Still, Reigns cut off Dominik and powerbombed him from the ring to the floor. The show closed with Reigns taking out Rey while he was checking on Dominik.
