Is it normal for a guy to get a WWE Championship match after he lost his previous two WWE Championship pay-per-view matches? No. However, that’s what happening at WWE Hell in a Cell on October 25. Hell in a Cell will take place at the
Last night on WWE Monday Night Raw, Randy Orton challenged McIntyre to another WWE Championship match even though McIntyre beat Orton clean at SummerSlam and also at Clash of Champions with Drew getting some help from Big Show, Christian and Shawn Michaels. That’s why Orton is justified in claiming he deserves another shot since he was attacked three times in the Clash of Champions match. Anyway, McIntyre accepted the Orton challenge, so now it’s official that McIntyre will defend the WWE Championship against Randy Orton in a Hell in a Cell match.
Also last night on Raw, Orton pinned McIntyre in a six-man tag team match. It was the first time McIntyre was pinned in a match this year.
Orton is going into Hell in a Cell with three straight PPV losses against McIntyre at SummerSlam, Keith Lee at Payback and then McIntrye again at Clash of Champions. Will Orton lose a fourth PPV match in a row? It seems unlikely.
That means the WWE Hell in a Cell has two official matches right now:
WWE Championship Hell in a Cell Match: Drew McIntyre (c) vs. Randy Orton
WWE Universal Championship Hell in a Cell Match: Roman Reigns (c) vs. Jey Uso
There is expected to be a third Hell in a Cell Match with Bayley vs. Sasha Banks, but that’s not official yet.
Other matches are likely to be set up after the WWE Draft begins this Friday on Smackdown.
