Update on WWE moving Mysterio vs. Reigns

Jun 18, 2021 - by Marc Middleton

WWE announced on Thursday night that the Hell In a Cell match between WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns and SmackDown Tag Team Champion Rey Mysterio was being moved from Sunday’s pay-per-view to tonight’s go-home edition of SmackDown.

In an update, the Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that people close to the situation said there was no clear reason as to why the match was moved, that made any sense, but there were a bunch of creative talks on Thursday, and those talks led to the match being done on SmackDown.

Regarding Sunday’s Hell In a Cell pay-per-view, current plans as of today call for Reigns to not wrestle.

There is only one Cell match announced for Sunday as of this writing, Drew McIntyre vs. WWE Champion Bobby Lashley. There have been rumors on Cesaro vs. Seth Rollins being added to the Hell In a Cell card, but there’s no word on if it will happen in the Cell.

Stay tuned for updates.

    This was the only interesting match going into the PPV. They should just bring back the Armageddon name and have a HITC match on that card. Same with TLC & Extreme Rules.
