The card for Hell in a Cell started to take shape on last night's episode of Raw.

Rhea Ripley defending the Raw Women's Championship against Charlotte Flair is the first match that's been made official for the Sunday, June 20 Hell in a Cell pay-per-view. The match was announced after Charlotte defeated Asuka on Raw last night.

Ripley retained the Raw Women's Championship against Asuka and Charlotte at WrestleMania Backlash last month. Charlotte wasn't pinned in that match and wanted a one-on-one title shot, but she was told that her request would be considered if she defeated Asuka last week. Asuka won that match after Ripley distracted Charlotte leading into the finish, but Charlotte won their rematch last night when she rolled through on the Asuka Lock and pinned Asuka.

Ripley was in action last night and failed to beat Nikki Cross within two minutes in a Beat the Clock challenge. The match was set up when Cross said she could defeat Ripley or Charlotte. Charlotte said she'd beat Cross in under two minutes if she didn't already have a match against Asuka. Charlotte challenged Ripley to try and beat Cross in two minutes. The clock ran out as Ripley was attacking Cross with strikes in the corner.

Drew McIntyre and Kofi Kingston will face off in a number one contender's match on Raw next week to determine WWE Champion Bobby Lashley's challenger for Hell in a Cell. The number one contender's match initially took place last night, but it ended without a decisive finish when Lashley and MVP attacked McIntyre and Kingston at the same time. Before interfering, Lashley had gotten knocked down when Kingston hit a trust fall dive to McIntyre on the outside. Kingston hit Trouble in Paradise on Lashley and McIntyre gave Lashley a Claymore after the match.

McIntyre and Kingston's match next week has a stipulation where Lashley will be suspended without pay for 90 days if either he or MVP interfere or go out to ringside during the match.

Lashley retained against Braun Strowman and McIntyre at WrestleMania Backlash, pinning Strowman to get the win. Kingston defeated Lashley in a non-title match on Raw last week after McIntyre hit Lashley with MVP's cane.
