Get the Cell ready. There are certain match types in wrestling that you know makes things serious. Just hearing the name mentioned makes things feel that much more important and ominous, which seems likely to be the case again soon. This weekend, WWE will be presenting its annual Hell In A Cell pay per view event and now another match is taking place inside the show’s namesake structure.

This week on SmackDown, Bianca Belair challenged Bayley to make their previously announced SmackDown Women’s Title match at Hell in a Cell into a Hell in a Cell match. Bayley came to the ring for a brawl and laid Belair out before posing with the title. Later in the show, the match was confirmed to take place inside the Cell. Bayley has wrestled inside the Cell one time while Belair will be inside for the first time.

They have been at this for a bit. Check out how we got here:

Opinion: This is quite the jump for both of them, as I’m not entirely sure that they need to be inside the Cell. They had a big match at WrestleMania, but going into the Cell in their rematch is a pretty big leap. They have the skills to pull this off, but I’m not sure how much they need to be in this kind of a match. That has been the case with at least one match on this show almost every year since it debuted though, so it is hard to complain that much.

What do you expect from the match? Should it be in the Cell? Let us know in the comments below.
