Roman Reigns Vs. Rey Mysterio Hell In A Cell Match Moved To WWE SmackDown

In some surprising news, WWE has moved the Hell in a Cell match between Roman Reigns and Rey Mysterio to tomorrow night’s episode of Friday Night SmackDown.

The Universal Championship match was announced for Hell in a Cell on Sunday night, but WWE has now moved that match to SmackDown tomorrow night.

WWE confirmed the news with an official statement, writing:

Ray Mysterio is out for retribution against Universal Champion Roman Reigns for the attacks that The Head of the Table unleashed on him and his son Dominik, and he is not willing to wait for WWE Hell in a Cell. He wants Reigns tomorrow night on SmackDown.

Thirsty for payback, The Master of the 619 sent out a tweet Thursday night laying down the challenge to The Big Dog for the blue brand.

Reigns accepted on Twitter as well, making it clear that if Rey wants the matchup on Friday night, it would just move up the timetable on disgracing what’s left of Mysterio’s family name.

SmackDown inside the dreaded structure two days early.

The elder Mysterio confronted The Head of the Table on SmackDown after the Universal Champion’s brutal attack on his son Dominik. Father and son launched a Kendo stick attack that Reigns narrowly escaped. The Mysterios have carried a target on their backs as SmackDown Tag Team Champions, but the father-son duo always head into battle shoulder to shoulder.

On the other side, Reigns has seen the reemergence of Jimmy Uso draw a line between him and his “Right Hand Man” Jey Uso. Family ties may not matter though when the unforgiving steel structure of the Hell in a Cell closes around The Ultimate Underdog and The Head of the Table.

Will Rey show the Universal Champion what it truly means to lead his family? Or will Reigns force another opponent to acknowledge him?

Don’t miss the massive title showdown tomorrow night at 8/7 C on SmackDown on FOX.
