• Reason Behind A Hell In A Cell Match Taking Place On Tonight’s RAW
Tonight’s RAW kicked off with WWE Champion Bobby Lashley celebrating his Hell in a Cell win over Drew McIntyre, and the fact that Drew can’t challenge him for the Title again.
The New Day came out and Kofi Kingston showed footage of him pinning Lashley a few weeks back.
Kofi then challenged Bobby for the WWE Championship at the Money In The Bank 2021 PPV.
Lashley accepted Kofi’s challenge, but for Kofi to get this Title match, Xavier Woods will have to face Lashley in a Hell in a Cell match tonight on RAW.

According to the Mat Men Pro Wrestling podcast, USA Network officials weren’t happy when WWE did a Hell in a Cell match on last week’s episode of SmackDown (Roman Reigns vs. Rey Mysterio) on FOX:
“I can tell you for a fact that USA Network is very unhappy that the Hell in a Cell match is happening on SmackDown. I’m not gonna say they are fuming but they are very unhappy about it.”
So, to keep the USA Network officials happy and try to increase the viewership of the show, WWE is doing a Hell in a Cell match on tonight’s RAW.
