That makes it official. We are less than a month away from Hell In A Cell, which is one of the bigger themed shows that WWE offers in any given year. The show’s namesake match is what matters the most on the show and WWE needs to present something special to make the matches work as well as they can. One match has already been announced and now we have the second ready to go.

One of the biggest stories in WWE this year has been the feud between WWE Champion Drew McIntyre and Randy Orton. The two have been feuding for several months now with McIntyre defeating him at both Summerslam and Clash Of Champions. This has not set well with Orton, who attacked a group of legends last week, forcing McIntyre to make a decision. Now that decision has been made.

This week on Monday Night Raw, McIntyre accepted Orton’s challenge to meet him inside the Cell for the WWE Championship at Hell In A Cell. Orton had teased the match on last week’s show but only officially made the challenge this week. McIntyre instantly appeared and attacked Orton before accepting the challenge later in the night. This will be McIntyre’s first time inside the Cell.

It is a big match. Check out how we got here:

Opinion: This works as well as anything else and it isn’t quite the biggest surprise in the world. It’s a nice thing to see them get to the match already though as they are only going to have two weeks to really hammer it home. That doesn’t sound like very long and it’s even worse when you consider that the Draft is taking up most of next week’s show. It’s an obvious main event, but even an obvious main event needs a building period.
