Your last night of freedom. With less than a week to go before “Hell in a Cell 2017”, it’s time to put the finishing touches on the pay per view build. In this case that means tightening up the storylines and maybe even adding a match or two. If nothing else there are some big stories planned in advance for tonight’s show. has released their official “Smackdown Live” preview, focusing on five topics as usual. The big story will see Shane McMahon and Kevin Owens facing off in person before they step foot in the Cell this coming Sunday. There will also be comments from #1 contender Shinsuke Nakamura. Here are the five stories WWE is focusing on, including a video for each:

Opinion: Hopefully this show builds up the pay per view a bit more as the focus on Owens vs. McMahon is taking away from the other matches. Nothing else feels even slightly important by comparison and that’s not a good sign. If Owens vs. McMahon isn’t good, the show could feel like a big letdown. Upgrade some of the other stuff and a lot of that problem goes away, but I’m not sure if WWE will actually do that.
