Hell in a Cell is coming to WWE a bit early this year. Now fans will have a June pay-per-view and they won’t have to wait until October. There is a reason why WWE made this call. This all falls in line with a previous report that Vince McMahon wanted to shake-up the pay-per-view schedule.
WWE surprised a lot of fans when they announced Hell in a Cell for next month. That news was quickly followed by a report that Money in the Bank will take place in July with live fans. There is a reason why WWE made this decision to swap things around.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer explained WWE’s reasoning for wanting to save their fourth biggest show of the year for fans.
“I guess the mentality would be that Money In The Bank is the number four or five draw most years […] so, I think that the mentality is that if we got to a show with fans to make sure that the first pay-per-view we do can no upset our schedule and move SummerSlam to July.”
As we previously reported, Money In The Bank is expected for July and live fans will return. That is a big deal and Money In The Bank could certainly bring in a big crowd full of live fans.
Hell in a Cell will take place on June 20th and Hell in a Cell will reportedly take place on July 18th in front of live fans.
The company’s attempt to not upset their yearly schedule is a moot point though. For some reason, they decided to hold Hell in a Cell next month, a pay-per-view historically held in October.
