WWE have confirmed that Roman Reigns will defend his Universal Championship against Rey Mysterio inside Hell In A Cell.
The confirmation comes after Rey Mysterio challenged Reigns to a match at the up coming pay-per-view of the same name on SmackDown.
Mysterio and his son Dominik have unwittingly become embroiled in Reigns’ own family drama as he tries to reign in cousin Jimmy Uso to stand with him and his right-hand man, Jey Uso. On the June 4th episode of SmackDown ‘The Head Of The Table’ interjected himself in the SmackDown Tag Team Title match between The Mysterios and The Usos. Reigns made his presence felt as he took his frustrations out on the younger Mysterio.
Then last week, former World Heavyweight Champion Rey Mysterio appeared looking for revenge. Mysterio challenged Reigns to meet him inside the demonic structure, calling the WWE Universal Champion a “rat b*stard.”
Before Reigns could respond to Mysterio’s challenge, the cruiserweight legend launched an attack of his own on Reigns. Mysterio laid into The Tribal Chief with a kendo stick before getting caught with a Superman Punch. Before Reigns could split Rey in half with a spear, Dominik Mysterio appeared with a kendo stick of his own as he sought to protect his father.
