As previously reported, the initial plan was for Jinder Mahal to face Shinsuke Nakamura for the WWE Championship at the Smackdown Live Brand Exclusive PPV Hell in a Cell inside the Hell in a Cell. It was also reported that Randy Orton will face Rusev at the Hell in a Cell PPV.
On a recent edition of Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez speculated that next week’s #1 contender match between Randy Orton and Shinsuke Nakamura could see Orton win the match and go on to challenge Mahal at the Hell in a Cell PPV. This would mean that the initially planned rematch between Shinsuke Nakamura and Jinder Mahal will be pushed out for several weeks.
It was also reported that there is a working plan for Rusev and Orton to begin a program soon despite the nine second match they had at SummerSlam. As a result, it is possible that we could see Rusev interfere in any potential match that Orton may have against Mahal for the WWE Championship.
