For the first time in his career, Rey Mysterio will step foot inside Hell in a Cell on Friday's SmackDown.
Though Mysterio has been wrestling since he was 14 and competed in a variety of matches and structures, he's never experienced the demonic structure of Hell in a Cell.
Speaking to Alistair McGeorge of Metro, Mysterio discussed his mindset going into the match.
"So, this match is everything new for me. I enjoy [that] but at this stage of my career… I do – I get a little butterflies in my stomach – still for any type of match, for this one a bit more. But I’ve always loved to step in that ring and entertain the fans. That’s what I’m gonna do. I’m gonna go in there and entertain. But most importantly I do wanna leave that match with my stamp on Hell In A Cell – on my first Hell In A Cell – and my first singles match against Roman Reigns. I’m hoping to bring something new to the table, like I always try to do, and have the fans enjoy it. I don’t see why not. I know structures are now different. I’ve never competed in a Hell In A Cell but I’m looking forward tot seeing the structure of the cage. When I’m able to see it in person, that’s when my vision and my thoughts just start unwinding. I’m definitely gonna bring something to the table that is gonna be talked about," said Mysterio.
Mysterio vs. Reigns was originally scheduled to take place on Sunday at WWE Hell in a Cell, but on Thursday night it was decided that the match would be moved to Friday's SmackDown.
Fightful will have live coverage of WWE SmackDown beginning at 8 p.m. ET on Friday.
