Nakamura captured the United States Title from Hardy at Extreme Rules, hitting a low-blow prior to the bout and then a kinshasa once the bell rang. The two engaged in a rematch at SummerSlam, with Nakamura once again coming out on top. 

Hardy is looking for a measure of revenge and a little momentum heading into Hell in a Cell. This Sunday, Hardy will make his first trip inside Hell in a Cell when he takes on Randy Orton. 

Already announced for SmackDown on Tuesday is Maryse vs. Brie Bella and R-Truth vs. Andrade "Cien" Almas.
