Drew McIntyre and Bobby Lashley will now meet inside Hell in a Cell on Sunday, June 20.
After earning the opportunity to face Bobby Lashley one more time for the WWE Championship, Drew McIntyre agreed, on the June 7 episode of Monday Night Raw, that he will never get another opportunity at the championship but had one request of his own.
Drew McIntyre wants to face Bobby Lashley inside Hell in a Cell and the champion has agreed. Therefore their championship match will take place inside the namesake structure at the WWE Hell in a Cell event in 13 nights. Last year at the same event, Drew McIntyre lost the WWE Championship to Randy Orton. However, McIntyre does have the experience advantage as Bobby Lashley has never been inside of Hell in a Cell.
Drew McIntyre will have one final opportunity to dethrone The All Mighty WWE Champion Bobby Lashley with this battle coming inside the unforgiving Hell in a Cell.
In the wake of the epic Triple Threat WWE Title Match at WrestleMania Backlash, Lashley shut McIntyre out of a one-on-one matchup by offering an open challenge to anyone other than the Scottish Warrior or Braun Strowman. When former WWE Champion Kofi Kingston answered the call instead, MVP attempted to use his cane to end The Power of Positivity. Looking to leave his mark on the action, McIntyre emerged to not only stop MVP from using the foreign object, but to turn it on The All Mighty instead.
The following week, McIntyre's incredible strength met Kingston’s amazing athleticism in a high-stakes showdown of former WWE Champions. With a title clash against Lashley on the line, each combatant set out to send a message to The All Mighty Champion. After Kingston came crashing into McIntyre and Lashley on the outside, though, the WWE Champion brought an abrupt end to the match by attacking both challengers. Among the chaos, Lashley was left with two parting gifts, as Kingston connected on a Trouble in Paradise and McIntyre landed a Claymore.
In the ensuing matchup, Lashley and MVP were banned from ringside with the promise of a 90 day suspension without pay if they interfered in the rematch and McIntyre finally overcame Kofi in a hard-fought matchup to earn a WWE Title match at the upcoming pay-per-view. As the two warriors signed their WWE Title Match contract, MVP raised the stakes by declaring it would be the challenger's final opportunity to dethrone The All Mighty Champion. McIntyre eagerly accepted, but countered with a proposal to meet inside Hell in a Cell without the possibility of interference.
Don’t miss the highly-anticipated title clash on Sunday, June 20 at 8 ET/5 PT on Peacock in the United States and the WWE Network everywhere else.
