Universal Champion Roman Reigns will face Mysterio inside Hell in a Cell

Hell in a Cell 2021 match card has received a massive boost with a new addition. Universal Champion Roman Reigns will be facing one half of the Smackdown Tag Team Champion Rey Mysterio inside Hell in a Cell.

On the latest episode of WWE Smackdown, Rey Mysterio challenged Reigns for a match inside the unforgiving structure, after The Tribal Chief brutally assaulted his son, Dominik. During the episode, Mysterio’s challenge went unanswered, but on Talking Smack, special counsel to the Tribal Chief, Paul Heyman, accepted the challenge.

“An aggrieved father. Mourning over the beating that his son took at the hands of the Tribal Chief, the Head of the Table, the undisputed, uncontroverted Universal Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns, and now Rey Mysterio wants his revenge on Father’s Day! Oh my God! You can’t write it any better than this. Rey Mysterio coming for revenge against Roman Reigns on Father’s Day, locked inside Hell in a Cell! and just for the simple fact that that is a hook, that is a lure, that is a seduction, that will entice anyone to understand, “I get this story! and I want to see it go down,” mentioned Heyman.

“As special counsel to the Tribal Chief, the Universal Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns. I, Paul Heyman, hereby inform the public that I am authorized to accept Rey Mysterio’s challenge against Roman Reigns inside Hell in a Cell!” said Heyman, as he accepted the challenge on behalf of Roman Reigns.
