McMahon assured Zayn that he isn't trapped inside Hell in a Cell with Owens, but rather the other way around. Owens needs this to boost him back to a main event star, while McMahon would only need this for his ego.

As the card is being finalized, WWE announced on this week's episod of "SmackDown Live" that a special tag team match will be taking place on Sunday night.

The New Day interrupted and said while they usually crack jokes and plug their products, tonight was about how night in and night out they consistently had the match of the night and Hell in a Cell would be no different. Join me for live coverage on Sunday beginning with the Kickoff Show at 6CT/7ET. It airs live on USA Network at 8 PM ET. That simultaneously tells you how poor a job WWE is doing with its signature title and how great this rivalry has been over the last few months. The segment ended with the two teams staring each other down. That leads me to believe something is going to go down to that end on Sunday and this rivalry will remain somewhat unresolved, which can lead to it being revisited perhaps before WrestleMania 34.

The show opened up with Shinsuke Nakamura being interviewed by Renee Young.

Nakamura was able to mount a comeback against Mahal, however, until The Singh Brothers joined in on the attack. Nakamura has been given a second chance at the title after defeating Randy Orton in a #1 Contender's Match, but all that has happened since is that Mahal tries to insult Nakamura's face.

Next up was Baron Corbin vs. Tye Dillinger. With the match looking to favour Flair and Lynch, Carmella took matters into her own hands when she used her Money In The Bank briefcase to attack Lynch, giving the Queen of Harts just the distraction that she needed to lock Flair into her trademark Sharpshooter and earn a submission win. Roode dismissed Ziggler's outrage by doing the "Glorious" gesture with his music hitting as an exclamation point.

You won't have to wait too long to see Styles in action.

After having his serenade ruined by Randy Orton's gate-crashing of Rusev's pride of Bulgaria celebration last week, Aiden English wanted some payback.

Although Ziggler cheating his way to victory can't be ruled out, a win for Bobby Roode seems far more likely.
