Hey, a contract signing segment that actually made sense!
A couple weeks out from Hell in a Cell, scheduled for Sun., June 20, 2021, at the ThunderDome inside Yuengling Center in Tampa, Florida, WWE booked Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre to sign the contract for their title match at the upcoming pay-per-view on Monday Night Raw. Instead of a simple signing followed by a brawl, the two sides negotiated the terms of the agreement.
Lashley demanded a stipulation be added that if he wins, McIntyre will never get to challenge for him for the WWE championship again. McIntyre agreed, provided Lashley agree to his terms — to make it a Hell in a Cell match.
They both agreed, signed on the dotted line, and now it’s official.
Here’s the updated card:
- Bobby Lashley (c) vs. Drew McIntyre (WWE championship Hell in a Cell match; if McIntyre loses he can never challenge Lashley for the title again)
- Rhea Ripley (c) vs. Charlotte Flair (Raw women’s championship)
- Bianca Belair (c) vs. Bayley (SmackDown women’s championship)
