Updated WWE Hell In A Cell Card

The WWE Championship Match at Hell in a Cell was made official tonight on Raw as Vince McMahon decided that CM Punk will defend his belt against Ryback. After both competitors signed their Hell in a Cell contract, Ryback delivered the Shell Shock to the WWE Champion.

As a result of the growing animosity between Randy Orton and Alberto Del Rio, it was also announced that the two competitors will face off at the pay-per-view event. The Viper gave a surprise attack to Del Rio on SmackDown last week before RKO'ing Ricardo Rodriguez onto the announce table.

The announced card for Hell in a Cell, which takes place Oct. 28 at Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia, is as follows:

* WWE Champion CM Punk vs. Ryback

* World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus vs. Big Show

* WWE Tag Team Champions Team Hell No vs. Tag Team Tournament Winners

* Randy Orton vs. Alberto Del Rio

Hulk Hogan To Sue Over "Sex Tape"

Hulk Hogan held a press conference this afternoon to announce the legal action he's taking over the unauthorized production and distribution of his infamous sex tape -- and he's looking for over $100 million from the parties involved.

Hogan's attorney David R. Houston said they're suing Gawker.com for $100 million in damages for leaking the sex tape footage.

The damages sought from Bubba The Love Sponge & Heather Clem were not specified, but their actions were called "illegal, outrageous, and exceeded the bounds of human decency."

Hogan is also looking for BTLS, Gawker.com and anybody else that has possession of the time to turn it over to be destroyed ASAP.

Hogan's legal team will continue to go after anybody else who shares the X-rated movie.
