SmackDown Tag Team title match set for WWE Hell in a Cell


The SmackDown tag team title match for Hell in a Cell has been set.

On tonight’s episode of SmackDown, Rusev Day (Rusev & Aiden English) defeated The Bar (Cesaro & Sheamus) to earn the right to compete against The New Day this Sunday. The finish had Sheamus setting up for the Brogue kick. Aiden English, sensing what was about to happen, pushed Rusev out of the way and took the kick. In the confusion, Rusev used the opportunity to strike Sheamus with the machka kick and pinned him to score the win for his team.

There had been a mini-tournament over the last few weeks to determine a number one contender for the titles. Rusev Day defeated SAnitY and The Usos in a triple threat tag team match, while The Bar defeated The Colons and Anderson & Gallows ahead of tonight’s match.

Hell in a Cell will take place this Sunday at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas.
