WWE is presenting their annual Hell in a Cell pay-per-view on Sunday night, but there hasn’t been much build-up for it. As the promotion has been concerned with all of the changes and big happenings in the industry in the past two weeks, the PPV seems to be an afterthought. Late on Sunday afternoon, additional matches were announced for the event, and they were needed as there is a lot of time to fill.
Early on Sunday morning, The Inquisitr reported how WWE had announced only four matches for Hell in a Cell. At the time of this writing, WWE has confirmed some of the other matches for the pay-per-view, but the rumors began flying earlier today about what may fill out the card.
It is now known that Lacey Evans and Natalya will continue the feud they’ve been building up over the last few weeks. They will have a one-on-one match that will take place on the kickoff show, which means WWE plans on having enough matches to fill the rest of the time.
One of the other matches added to the card is yet another feud that has been going on for a while now. The O.C. (AJ Styles, Karl Anderson, Luke Gallows) will face off against the Viking Raiders and a mystery partner, but there’s no word yet on who will join them.
Cedric Alexander had been partnering with the Viking Raiders recently, but there appears to be another idea for Hell in a Cell.
Right before 5 p.m. on Sunday afternoon, the official Twitter account for WWE confirmed those two matches and added a few more. The majority of the matches are all reruns of what fans have seen on Monday Night Raw and SmackDown in recent weeks, but at least it’s more than just the four matches originally planned.
