  • September 26th will forever be known as Rusev day. Unfortunately for Rusev, Randy Orton spoiled the ceremony. Orton and Rusev are now 1-1 against each other in quick matches during this rivalry. We should get the rubber match at Hell in a Cell.
  • Speaking of Hell in a Cell, New Day and the Usos will face each other once again at the event, but their match will be inside the HIAC itself.
  • Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens had yet another classic confrontation this week on Smackdown, as WWE builds up Owens to take on Shane McMahon inside HIAC on October 8th.
  • The WWE Championship will be defended by Jinder Mahal at Hell in a Cell against Shinsuke Nakamura. The champion continued his controversial promos this week, until this time he was finally interrupted by Nakamura. Nobody has been able to defeat the numbers game of Jinder and the Singh brothers yet, but if Nakamura can do that in a couple of weeks he will be the new WWE champion.
  • Baron Corbin also challenged AJ Styles to a United States championship match at Hell in a Cell.
  • Natalya will defend her Smackdown women’s championship against Charlotte on October 8th as well.
  • Dolph Ziggler continued his gimmick of imitating wrestler entrances this week, only to be interrupted by Bobby Roode. Considering his Glorious theme music is beloved by fans, Ziggler feels Roode is the perfect opponent for him at this time in his career. Looks like they will meet at HIAC as well.
  • Possibly the biggest angle of the night took place in 205 Live. Enzo Amore seemingly does not have to defend the Cruiserweight championship against anyone who attacked him Monday night. This should lead to some interesting scenarios over the next few weeks.
