The WWE announced on last night’s Monday Night Raw that Daniel Bryan will battle Randy Orton for the vacant WWE title at the Hell In A Cell PPV. During the show it was announced that former WWE champion and Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels is going to be the special guest referee.
This will be the third time that Bryan and Orton will be squaring off. The two battled first at Night of Champions last month. Bryan pinned Orton to win the title, but on the next on Raw, COO Triple H said due to the fast count of referee Scott Armstrong the title would be vacated.
The rematch took place on Sunday at Battleground and the match ended in a no contest, when The Big Show came out and knocked out Bryan and Orton.
Michaels was made the special referee when Raw General Manager made a poll with Michaels, Bob Backland and Booker T. “The Heartbreak Kid” won the poll with 61 percent of the vote.
Hell In A Cell takes place on Sunday, October 27 from the American Airlines Arena in Miami, Florida.
