The SmackDown Women’s Title match has developed into a bitter, personal rivalry between Bayley and Bianca Belair. What was originally a game of oneupmanship took a wicked turn after Belair challenged Bayley to a Hell in a Cell match. She also cut a promo about how the Role Model’s mind games won’t work anymore, and she’ll taste her wrath inside the cell.

The challenger walked out and attacked the champion, but Belair took Bayley down and tossed her out of the ring. As she tried to toss her over the barricade, Bayley grabbed Bianca’s braid and pulled her into the barricade. She then connected with a vicious knee to the face, followed by the Rose Plant.

Bayley finally showed the viciousness inside her and gave a rest to her foolish shenanigans. As for Belair, she received the personal touch this rivalry needed so she could take the fight to Bayley inside Hell in a Cell. Will the EST of WWE triumph in her first ever cell match, or will Bayley right the wrong from last year and win the SmackDown Women’s Title for a third time?

WrestleMania rematches feature on WWE Hell in a Cell card

Two undercard matches from WrestleMania 37 that absolutely killed are on the Hell in a Cell card. On Night 1, Cesaro and Seth Rollins dazzled fans with a fifteen minute ripper of a match. The following night, KO and Sami Zayn added another brilliant edition to their classic rivalry.

Last week, Cesaro stripped Rollins to his underwear during Ding Dong Hello, causing the Messiah to flip out. This week, instead of going the violent way, both men sat down with Kayla Braxton and talked. Rollins said Cesaro disgusts him, and he’s waiting to teach him a lesson on Sunday. Cesaro said he respects Rollins as a wrestler, but he won’t respect him this Sunday when they meet in the ring.

The rivalry between Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn deserved the Hell in a Cell stipulation when they were in NXT. WWE had the chance to put the two eternal rivals inside the hellacious structure, but the privilege of wrestling in the cell went to Bayley and Belair. However, KO and Sami will work tremendously hard to prove why they deserved the stipulation.
