Let’s do it early. We are less than a week away from WWE’s next pay per view with Hell In A Cell 2021. As the name suggests, the show is built around matches taking place inside the show’s namesake structure. As has been the case with the event over the years, the show will feature multiple matches inside the Cell, but now we might be seeing something a little bit different.
WWE has announced that Rey Mysterio will challenge Roman Reigns for the Universal Title in a Hell in a Cell match this week on SmackDown. The match was already scheduled to take place two days later at the pay per view. Mysterio sent out a tweet saying that he could not wait that long, with Reigns responding that he was fine with having the match early. There is no word on what this means for the pay per view card. This will be the third ever Cell match on regular television and the first in over twenty years.

Sunday. Friday. Any day.
Makes no difference to me.
It'll be my pleasure to disgrace what's left of your family name tomorrow night inside Hell in a Cell!
My Special Counsel @HeymanHustle will handle the paperwork.

This is a big one. Check out how we got here:
Opinion: This is rather curious, but I’m not sure how much of a draw the match is going to be on a single day’s notice. I’m interested in seeing what they do though, as this could wipe out one of the bigger matches on a show that already doesn’t have the strongest depth in the first place. They could go a few ways here and that adds some drama that has been missing from SmackDown.
