Two big matches have been announced for WWE Hell in a Cell, which takes place on Sunday, September 16 at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas.
According to a press release WWE issued last week to KSAT 12 (an ABC-affiliated television station licensed to San Antonio, Texas), Samoa Joe will challenge AJ Styles for the WWE Championship and Roman Reigns will take on Kevin Owens (presumably in a Hell in a Cell Match).
WWE stars headed to San Antonio for ‘Hell In A Cell’ event
SAN ANTONIO – One of the biggest events in World Wrestling Entertainment is headed to San Antonio.
WWE’s ‘Hell In A Cell’ will be held Sept. 16 at the AT&T Center.
Wrestlers compete inside a 20-foot-high roofed cage that surrounds the ring and ringside area.
Fans will get to see Roman Reigns take on Kevin Owens, and WWE Champion AJ Styles versus Samoa Joe for the WWE Championship.
During Raw last night, a commercial aired in the Central/South Texas area hyping Styles defending the WWE Championship against Joe as the top match.

If the advertised matches do indeed take place, this means Styles will carry the WWE Championship past SummerSlam on August 19. As always, the card is subject to change, but this seems to be the creative direction WWE has planned for Styles, Joe, Reigns, and Owens over the next few months.
Reigns vs. Owens would play off the main event of last year’s show, which saw “KO” beat Shane McMahon in a Falls Count Anywhere Hell in a Cell Match.
