WWE has announced what match will be featured on the Hell In A Cell Kick-Off show tonight, with a championship match being placed in the slot.
The company has revealed that the SmackDown Tag Team Championship match between The New Day and Rusev Day (Aiden English & Rusev) will now be on the kick-off show, instead of the main card.
Rumored Reason For Cell Structure Change
WWE has revealed today that the Hell In A Cell structure has changed, with the cell now being red. According to the Twitter account, Wrestle Votes, the reason is that with all the talk regarding the Undertaker and Mankind match being 20 years old, Vince McMahon has realized how old the match actually is.
This is why he has decided to change up the look of the structure to keep it fresh, just as he did when the Roman numerals were taken from WrestleMania’s, with logos being used instead.
Asked about the Red Cell… source said “honestly, w/ all this 20 yr talk about Taker & Foley, I think Vince forgot how old the match was. So he changed it up. Like when Mania lost its roman numerals. Just something new.” Also, they did test for visibility and it’s OK. #WWEHIAC
