WWE announces Hell in a Cell stipulation for Belair vs. Bayley


With Roman Reigns vs. Rey Mysterio off the Hell in a Cell card, a new Hell in a Cell match has been made for Sunday's pay-per-view.

It was announced on SmackDown tonight that Bianca Belair will now be defending her SmackDown Women's Championship against Bayley in a Hell in a Cell match on Sunday. Belair vs. Bayley was first announced for Hell in a Cell two weeks ago, but it wasn't set to take place inside of Hell in a Cell at that time.

Belair cut a promo on SmackDown tonight and challenged Bayley to make their match on Sunday a Hell in a Cell match. Bayley then came out to the ring and tried to attack Belair. Belair was getting the better of a brawl with Bayley, but Bayley turned the tide by grabbing Belair's hair and sending her into the barricade.

After laying out Belair in the ring, Bayley stood above Belair and posed with Belair's SmackDown Women's Championship.

Reigns was originally supposed to defend his Universal Championship against Mysterio in a Hell in a Cell match on Sunday, but that match was moved up to tonight's SmackDown.

Here's the updated card for Hell in a Cell:

  • Hell in a Cell match: WWE Champion Bobby Lashley defends against Drew McIntyre (if McIntyre loses, he can't challenge for the WWE Championship again while Lashley is still champion)
  • Hell in a Cell match: SmackDown Women's Champion Bianca Belair defends against Bayley
  • Raw Women's Champion Rhea Ripley defends against Charlotte Flair
  • Alexa Bliss vs. Shayna Baszler
  • Cesaro vs. Seth Rollins
  • Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn
