Also set for tonight’s show...an NXT Tag Title match: MSK defending against Legado Del Fantasma.
Drew McIntyre will get another shot at WWE Champion Bobby Lashley and he’ll get it at Hell In A Cell. McIntyre secured the #1 Contendership by beating Kofi Kingston in the main event of last night’s Raw.

The U.S. Champ Sheamus lost a pair of non-title matches.
Ricochet rolled up and pinned Sheamus after Sheamus was distracted by Humberto Carrillo making his entrance during the match.
Carrillo immediately had his own match against Sheamus...and Carrillo also rolled up Sheamus for the pin...thanks to a distraction by Ricochet.
Reginald PINNED Shayna Baszler…with a rollup. Shayna was in control until fire erupted from one of the ring posts…and Reggie was able to take advantage.
