WWE's Reason For Having A Hell In A Cell Match on Raw Reportedly Revealed
Two Hell In A Cell Matches on the last two televised shows
WWE once again presented a Hell In A Cell match on free-to-view television on Monday as WWE Champion Bobby Lashley faced Xavier Woods inside the steel structure on Monday Night Raw.
The use of the Hell In A Cell on Raw is the second time there has been a match inside the cage in less than a week on television, after Universal Champion Roman Reigns successfully defended his Title against Rey Mysterio last Friday on SmackDown with the same stipulation.
There had been reports that NBC Universal had been unhappy with WWE for moving the Universal Championship Hell In A Cell match, previously advertised for their streaming service Peacock, to the Fox television network.
According to PWInsider, WWE's reasoning for having a Hell In A Cell match on broadcast television on Raw is the same for having one on SmackDown just a few days ago, in that the promotion wished to give their network partner something a little more special and extra.
The company saw another advantage in having Hell In A Cell feature on Raw in that the hope was it would help to grab fans' attention ahead of their return to live touring next month.
