WWE Champion Bobby Lashley is certain that he and Drew McIntyre will deliver “one of the best” Hell in a Cell matches in history this Sunday at the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view. Entering the cell structure for the first time in his career, Lashley is wary of how his “body’ s gonna feel” the day after the event, but equally prepared to go to any lengths to retain his title. “ With Drew and I, just going from our WrestleMania match, it’ s going to be rough, it’ s going to be seriously rough,” Lashley told SK Wrestling .

"You know, it's all the same to me, man," Lashley said. "I train for everything and I expect anything. This is going to be a tough one because I already feel the pains on my body. This is important. This is super important for Drew and myself because we've been fighting for such a long time and that WWE championship is so important right now. It's important for me and the legacy of everything that I've put in and it's important to him for making a name for himself and solidifying himself in history. Right now, in that, we're both willing to do anything. It's going to be crazy, it's going to be rough and I expect to be in a lot of pain on Monday but that championship is worth it.

  Behind the Scenes of ‘NXT TakeOver: In Your House’ Here’s what you didn’t see on TV during WWE’s latest pay-per-view. If you happened to be watching the kickoff show before NXT TakeOver: In Your House on Sunday night, you may have noticed me with a microphone in hand. That setting was definitely a new experience for me. As I fly from Orlando back home to Boston, here is a collection of takeaways from my brief foray as an on-air talent, as well as a look at In Your House.A few weeks ago, I received a call from WWE’s PR department asking whether I would be part of their kickoff show for In Your House.

The Scottish Warrior issued the challenge on Monday while he and Lashley signed their contract for the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view event, which takes place on June 20. The Hell in a Cell match involves a massive cage with a roof being placed over the ring. The bout has no rules with the cage meant to keep out any outside interference. Lashley was joined by his manager MVP during the contract signing.

"I've always been a student of the game so I'm always watching videos and watching tape of what the other guys have done. I don't want to hear how they felt because it's obvious. And I don't want to hear it's worse than it actually is. I'm going to prepare for the worst and go out there and just know what to expect. There's a lot of damage that can be caused to a person's body."

Hell in a Cell also marks the final WWE pay-per-view event to be held inside the ThunderDome, WWE's virtual fan experience that has become their home during the COVID-19 pandemic. July's Money in the Bank event will be held in front of a live crowd as WWE returns to live touring.

"It's going to be different and special in that sense, but it's going to be more special once we're able to bring the fans back in," Lashley said. "We're going to give them a good show here. But, of course, when you have fans back, that's going to take it another notch up. I like it, I mean, that's another piece of history where you can write that we were one of the last."

With just thirteen nights to go before WWE Hell in a Cell , there is finally a match that will take place inside the titular cage. The match pitting WWE champion Bobby Lashley against Drew McIntyre will now be held inside Hell in a Cell . During a contract signing between the two on Monday' s Raw, it was stipulated that if McIntyre lost, he could never challenge for the title again, so long as Lashley was champion . However, for his part, McIntyre requested that the match take place inside the Cell . McIntyre earned the shot by defeating Kofi Kingston on last week' s Raw.

WWE is also looking to make SummerSlam an even bigger spectacle than normal in August, placing the event in Las Vegas' Allegiant Stadium. A win for Lashley on Sunday would seem to secure that he would be one of the headliners at the summer spectacular, something Lashley is targeting as yet another important moment in his career.

"I think in all the many years that I've wrestled, I've never had a SummerSlam moment," Lashley said. "So, it's always going to be big. It's going to be huge, man, the first big show with fans coming back. Vegas in an incredible stadium like that? Everything is lining up in a way that makes that perfect. I'm not going to say it's bigger than Mania, but I can say that every new PPV that comes along seems to get bigger and bigger. It does feel a little bit like that kind of WrestleMania card."

Before SummerSlam, however, is Hell in a Cell. The match has come to be defined by spectacularly risky falls -- though far safer in modern times than when Mick Foley narrowly avoided serious injury in his two now-historic tumbles from the top of the Cell in 1998.

Asked how he could put his own stamp on the iconic match, Lashley admitted the need to have his own moment that displays the sacrifices he is willing to make to be at the top of the WWE mountain.

"I think it's just enduring and having that moment," Lashley said. "I think everybody has had that moment. Whatever that moment is, it shows your sheer toughness. Whether you win or lose, you have that moment in Hell in a Cell that you can relive and say, 'This is what I went through. This is what I was willing to do.' I think that's the biggest thing. If you look back at the biggest Hell in a Cell moments, that was the real staple, showing what you're willing to do to get that title, win or lose."

Stephanie McMahon on Return of WWE Crowds: ‘Without Our Fans, We Don’t Have a Product’ .
WWE is marking the return of fans in a big way by going all out at SummerSlam in Las Vegas. WWE shows return to the road in less than a month, starting mid-July in Texas.The connection with the crowd has been sorely missing from the product on a weekly basis for the past 15 months. Although there was a glimmer of hope at WrestleMania 37, which followed the Super Bowl at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium with a limited crowd, the upcoming slate of shows will be full capacity, hitting its summer crescendo with SummerSlam in August at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.
