Here is how the match card for the Hell in a Cell premium live event looks like following the May 23 episode of Monday Night Raw.
WWE Hell in a Cell takes place on Sunday, June 5 from Chicago, Ill. Given how close the premium live event is approaching, fans have to be wondering if the match card has grown since last week’s episode of Monday Night Raw, where it was revealed Cody Rhodes would face Seth “Freakin’” Rollins in a Hell in a Cell match and Asuka would challenge Bianca Belair for the Raw Women’s Championship.
The answer to that is yes.
After defeating Becky Lynch last week, Asuka was slated to challenge Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair at Hell in a Cell. But, Lynch found a way to get another title shot, as Adam Pearce revealed that in the main event, she would face Asuka again. If Lynch were to win, the Raw Women’s Championship match would be turned into a triple threat match.
Lynch managed to pick up the win. After approaching Belair, who was seated at ringside for the match, Lynch lured Asuka into going for a head kick. Lynch ducked, causing Asuka to hit Belair. Lynch threw Asuka into the announce table and rolled her up in the ring to pick up th win and to be added to the Raw Women’s Championship match.
Lashley and Omos are set to do battle once again on the third consecutive premium live event. On Raw, Lashley and his former manager, MVP, were slated to compete in a singles match. The winner would get to pick the stipulation for their match at Hell in a Cell. MVP was victorious after Lashley was distracted by Omos at ringside and was subsequently counted out.
Since the Raw after WrestleMania 38, Kevin Owens has been hellbent on proving that Ezekiel is actually Elias. It led to lie detector and DNA tests, both of which “revealed” that Ezekiel was not Elias.
After Ezekiel defeated Gable on Raw, Owens issued a challenge to Ezekiel to wrestle at Hell in a Cell, which was quickly accepted.
