Sunday. Friday. Any day.
Makes no difference to me.
It'll be my pleasure to disgrace what's left of your family name tomorrow night inside Hell in a Cell!
My Special Counsel @HeymanHustle will handle the paperwork.

Mysterio challenged Reigns to a Hell In A Cell match after Reigns took out Dominik Mysterio several weeks ago. Reigns’ involvement with the Mysterios came about when Jimmy and Jey Uso were taking on Dominik and Rey for the SmackDown Tag Team Titles.
Also scheduled for tomorrow’s SmackDown is Kevin Owens teaming with Big E to take on Commander Azeez and Intercontinental Champion Apollo Crews. Otis is going one-on-one with Angelo Dawkins along with Shinsuke Nakamura and King Corbin continuing their feud over Corbin’s crown.
