WWE confirms two Hell in a Cell title matches for next month's PPV


Two expected matches have now been officially added to the card for Hell in a Cell.

On tonight's Raw, WWE confirmed that Seth Rollins will defend his Universal Championship against The Fiend (Bray Wyatt) in a Hell in a Cell match at the pay-per-view.

Becky Lynch will also defend her Raw Women's Championship against Sasha Banks inside of Hell in a Cell at the PPV. Following Banks vs. Charlotte Flair from 2016, this will be the second women's Hell in a Cell match in WWE history.

Hell in a Cell is taking place at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, California on October 6. The venue first advertised last month that The Fiend would be challenging for the Universal title at the PPV.

The Fiend appeared at the end of Clash of Champions on Sunday and attacked Rollins in the show-closing angle. Lynch vs. Banks at Clash of Champions ended in a disqualification when Lynch went to hit Banks with a steel chair and accidentally struck the referee. Lynch and Banks brawled after the match, with Lynch putting Banks in the Dis-Arm-Her inside of a chair.

Tonight's Raw ended with The Fiend attacking Kane and taunting Rollins. That came after Kane made an appearance on the show and saved Rollins from Robert Roode, Dolph Ziggler, AJ Styles, Luke Gallows, and Karl Anderson.

Banks & Bayley defeated Women's Tag Team Champions Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross in a non-title match on Raw tonight. There was an angle where Bliss suffered a storyline injury during the match and had to be taken to the back. Banks went to attack Cross with a chair after winning, but Lynch came out with her own chair.

When Lynch was outnumbered by Banks and Bayley, Charlotte's music hit and Charlotte took out Bayley. Lynch then gave Banks a chair shot and sent her fleeing. Banks later issued a challenge to Lynch for Hell in a Cell, and Lynch responded by saying she wants to face Banks in a Hell in a Cell match.
