WWE has announced that Roman Reigns vs Rey Mysterio Universal Championship match will take place at WWE Hell in a Cell 2021 PPV inside the cell.
Roman Reigns interfered in the SmackDown Tag Team Championship match between The Mysterios and The Usos on last week’s SmackDown. Roman laid out both Dominik and Rey to close down the show.
At this week’s SmackDown, Rey Mysterio called out Roman for attacking him and Dominik and asked him to meet in the ring. As Roman met him in the ring, Rey called him a rat bast**d to attack his son and challenged him for a match inside Hell in a Cell.
This was followed by Rey attacking Roman with a kendo stick. However, Roman turned it around and even took down Dominik, who came to make the save. Roman closed the show once again by standing tall over the Mysterios. Paul Heyman later confirmed on Talking Smack that Roman has agreed to defend the Universal Championship inside Hell in a Cell against Rey Mysterio.
Heyman also pointed out how it a poetic that Rey Mysterio, a father, is going after the Tribal Chief in a match that will take place on Father’s Day.
