Now, WWE is advertising the match for the Friday Night Smackdown on June 18, 2021, instead. Should this match take place, it will be the first-ever Hell in a Cell to ever take place on an episode of SmackDown.

From WWE:

Mysterio to face Reigns in a Hell in a Cell Match on SmackDown tomorrow night

Rey Mysterio is out for retribution against Universal Champion Roman Reigns for the attacks that The Head of the Table unleashed on him and his son Dominik, and he is not willing to wait for WWE Hell in a Cell. He wants Reigns tomorrow night on SmackDown.

Thirsty for payback, The Master of the 619 sent out a tweet Thursday night laying down the challenge to The Big Dog for the blue brand.


Reigns accepted on Twitter as well, making it clear that if Rey wants the matchup on Friday night, it would just move up the timetable on disgracing what's left of Mysterio's family name.

Fightful will have live coverage of Friday Night SmackDown beginning Friday night at 8 p.m. eastern time.
