Two matches added to WWE Hell in a Cell

The card for Sunday's Hell in a Cell pay-per-view is now up to six announced matches.

It was announced on SmackDown tonight that Cesaro vs. Seth Rollins and Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn have both been added to the card for Sunday's PPV. Neither match will be taking place inside of Hell in a Cell.

Cesaro has defeated Rollins twice in singles matches this year. He defeated Rollins at WrestleMania 37 in April and on an episode of SmackDown in May.

There was an angle on SmackDown four weeks ago where Cesaro was stretchered out after being attacked by Rollins. Cesaro then returned last week and got revenge by attacking Rollins. Rollins was left in his underwear after Cesaro ripped off his suit.

Tonight's SmackDown featured a segment where Cesaro was interviewed backstage. Rollins interrupted the interview but told Cesaro that he was only there to have a conversation. Rollins said Cesaro disgusts him. He said everything Cesaro does and everything Cesaro stands for is a disgrace. Rollins said Cesaro doesn't deserve a single ounce of respect. Rollins told Cesaro that he'll put him in his place on Sunday.

Cesaro responded by saying that he respects Rollins as a competitor. But as Cesaro got up to leave, he pushed Rollins down. The push made Rollins fall over in his chair.

Owens and Zayn also faced off at WrestleMania 37. Owens defeated Zayn in that match.

Owens vs. Zayn was made for Hell in a Cell after Zayn cost Owens & Big E a tag match against Intercontinental Champion Apollo Crews & Commander Azeez on SmackDown tonight. Zayn, who was on commentary for the match, distracted Owens on the outside. Owens then went back into the ring and was given the Nigerian Nail by Azeez. Azeez pinned Owens to get the win.

Azeez gave Owens another Nigerian Nail after the tag match. Zayn laughed as he watched Owens gasp for air.

Owens later went to authority figures Adam Pearce and Sonya Deville and told them that he wanted to face Zayn. Pearce announced the match for Hell in a Cell.

Here's the updated lineup 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
