Not caring at all, KO and Zayn nearly came to blows until general manager Daniel Bryan entered the scene, setting the two enemies up for a main event later in the night. Before the match began, AJ Styles sat in on commentary. Corbin then challenged Styles to a US Championship match at Hell In A Cell, who accepted.

After weeks of having to listen to WWE Champion Jinder Mahal run his mouth, Shinsuke finally chose to offer a response...with his fists. Instead, he went back to the insult well, showing pictures of Nakamura's face and mocking him. After the match, the New Day challenged the Usos to a match inside Hell In A Cell. Mahal may have had the Singh Brothers at his side, but Nakamura made short work of them before eventually landing a vicious Kinshasa to the head of the reigning champ.

The rivalry between The New Day and The Usos has been fantastic with a handful of almost five-star caliber matches and a consistent storyline that has not lacked low points. Mojo gets the blind tag, but Zack is upset and they argue before the Usos capitalize and send Zack off of the top rope and to the floor. The Bulgarian Brute's celebration was quickly crashed by the Apex Predator, with Orton delivering an RKO to Rusev (And Aiden English, mercifully silencing his rendition of the Bulgarian national anthem), leaving the great protector of Bulgaria in a crumpled heap in the corner of the ring. The mayor declared today Rusev Day, and handed him a key to the city.

Rusev, victory over Randy Orton, gaudy celebration time. English then sang Orton's theme song with new lyrics, repeating "It's Rusev Day!" Bobby Roode had had enough of Ziggler wasting everyone's time, challenging Ziggler to a match at Hell in A Cell.

Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn reignited their classic rivalry on Tuesday's WWE SmackDown Live. The history between Owens and Zayn goes way back to their days on the independent circuit, long before either had been signed by WWE.

Not only will there be the first-ever true tag team Hell in a Cell match, Dolph Ziggler and Bobby Roode will square off in what should be a fun showdown albeit one that Ziggler will likely lose considering his penchant for doing the job for the newest members of the SmackDown brand.

Charlotte Flair def. Carmella via pinfall: Carmella brought James Ellsworth out on a leash. Natalya came out after the match and said she's happy Ric Flair will be able to watch Hell in a Cell and see Charlotte fail.

- Dolph Ziggler came out impersonating the Undertaker. The underdog was scared for Owens, warning him how Hell In A Cell matches shaved years off of the careers of wrestlers caught inside. Owens hit Zayn with a powerbomb on the apron, which resulted in referee Charles Robinson calling for the bell, awarding the match to Owens via ref stoppage. Ziggler said Roode is everything that is wrong with WWE before accepting the match.

Just as Zayn was leaving ringside with trainers and referees, Owens chose to run him down and attack a hobbled Zayn, placing a chair around his neck with a plan to run him into the ring post.
