WWE announces Reigns vs. Strowman Hell in a Cell match


Braun Strowman is cashing in his Money in the Bank briefcase for a title match at next month's Hell in a Cell pay-per-view.

Reigns defending his Universal Championship against Strowman in a Hell in a Cell match was announced for the PPV during the opening segment of tonight's Raw. The story was that Reigns challenged Strowman to cash in tonight, but Strowman said Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose would just come out to try and save Reigns like they did last week.

Strowman mentioned that Rollins and Ambrose couldn't get involved at the PPV with him facing Reigns inside Hell in a Cell.

Hell in a Cell will take place at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas on September 16. Reigns vs. Strowman is the third match to officially be announced for the PPV, joining AJ Styles vs. Samoa Joe for the WWE Championship and Daniel Bryan & Brie Bella vs. The Miz & Maryse. The AT&T Center is also advertising Ronda Rousey vs. Alexa Bliss for the Raw Women's title, Rollins & Ambrose vs. Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre, and Jeff Hardy vs. Randy Orton.

Also at Hell in a Cell, The New Day will defend their SmackDown Tag Team titles against the winners of a mini-tournament. The tournament will be held on SmackDown over the next few weeks, with two six-man tags deciding which teams will face off in a number one contender's match.
