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 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 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, and anybody else that has possession of the time to turn it over to be destroyed ASAP.

Live Results for WWE Raw 10/15/12

Another week, another live Raw recap and yet more questions to be answered. Who will CM Punk choose to face in a Hell In A Cell match in 2 weeks? Will it be Ryback or Cena? Who will go to face Team Hell No for the tag titles at the upcoming PPV? And will Little Jimmy's voice have broken given that he's going through puberty at the moment? Keep it here to find out...

Recap of Punk's exit from last week and McMahon's ultimatum.

Pyro is off and we are underway with Raw from Nashville, opening with Big Show making his way down to the ring. He feels that the debate a few weeks back was fixed and says that he can block the Brogue kick as shown last week on Raw and how his WMD is more powerful. He's sick of being pestered about his 45 second title reign and calls out 'Mr 18 seconds' Daniel Bryan.

Cut to backstage with Bryan, Kane, Santino, Ryder & others and Bryan isn't moving. GM AJ appears and says that she's making the match. Bryan asks Kane that he's got his back. Kane just manically laughs at him. Cue 'No' chants from Bryan and Yes chants from the people backstage, including Little Jimmy. Bryan is making his way to the ring.

Match 1 - Big Show Vs. Daniel Bryan
Good little match, Bryan has the upper hand for most of the match, before a jump off the turnbuckle gets reversed into a chokeslam from Big Show for the win.
WINNER - Big Show

Kane's pyro hits and he comes out, laughing at Bryan. Show gets the WMD ready for Bryan, but Kane comes in the ring and stops Show in his tracks. Show then leaves the ring and exits the stage. Kane & Bryan continue to argue in the ring.

Back from break, and Paul Heyman is out introducing CM Punk with his announcement. He says that no-one should disrespect him as he's the best in the world. He then brings up McMahon and wants to shows the Universe what McMahon thinks Punk represents and shows the PPV poster with CM Punk as a devil. He then brings up his opponents, firstly Ryback and then John Cena. He teases the reveal, but then says he needs more time. Cue Vince McMahon's music and Vince is on the ramp. He says that as CM Punk hasn't chosen, then McMahon will have to decide instead. Later tonight, there will be a contract signing and CM Punk will find his opponent then.

We're back from break and Alberto Del Rio & Broudus Clay are in the ring, ready for a match it seems.

Match 2 - Alberto Del Rio Vs. Brodus Clay
Quick little match. Del Rio wins with the Cross Arm Breaker.
WINNER - Alberto Del Rio

CM Punk and Heyman are backstage discussing McMahon's decision to decide Punk's opponent. He wants to challenge Vince to another match tonight with the winner to choose Punk's opponent and asks him to set it up.

We're back and the match is already underway with Co-Bro and the Prime Time Players.

Match 3 - Team Co-Bro (Santino Marella & Zack Ryder) vs. Prime Time Players (Darren Young & Titus O'Neil)
Quick match. Prime Time Players get the win.
WINNER - The Prime Time Players

Slater, McIntyre & Mahal hit the ring and cue up the music their new name the 3MB... so either this is a rip-off of 3-Count or it's the amount of shared computer memory that these guys have in their brains...

Replay of McMahon saying that he will decide Punk's opponent.

Vickie Guerrero's voice echoes around the arena and introduces Dolph Ziggler. He says that he deserves a shot at the WWE Championship and then cash in his briefcase to win the World Heavyweight Championship. David Otunga now says that he deserves a chance as well. AJ comes out and says she respects their opinions and thinks that they should be in a 2-on-1 handicap match. FEED ME MORE and Ryback's their opponent.

Match 4 - Dolph Ziggler & David Otunga (w/Vickie Guerrero) vs. Ryback
Dolph gets beaten down, tags in Otunga and leaves the ring with his briefcase and Vickie. Otunga gets Shellshocked and Ryback wins.
WINNER - Ryback

Heyman makes CM Punk's proposition to McMahon. McMahon accepts, but McMahon's opponent will not be Punk, it'll be Paul Heyman instead. So it looks like it's McMahon's choice then.

AJ is walking and backstage and runs into Matt Striker. He explains how he was attacked by Team Hell No on Smackdown and the crazy situation. The mention of crazy makes AJ go crazy herself and she puts Striker into a match with Kane later on.

Back from break and Antonio Cesaro is coming down to the ring to face Justin Gabriel.

Match 5 - Antonio Cesaro vs. Justin Gabriel
Looks like Antonio received a nasty bump in this match courtesy of a Justin Gabriel 450 Splash. Antonio, however manages to get the win with an uppercut and the Neutraliser.
WINNER - Antonio Cesaro

Matt Striker's in the ring, not happy with being there. Kane's pyro hits and he makes his way down to the ring.

Match 6 - Matt Striker vs. Kane

Later, we will have a Divas Title rematch with Eve defending her belt against Layla. Up next however is MizTV, with special guest Kofi Kingston.

We're back with MizTV and The Miz introduces his guest, Kofi Kingston. Very interesting discussion between the two about how they have had to carry and help each other. Miz says Kofi has not many moments to his name and Kofi thanks Miz for pumping him up for Wednesday where he'll win Miz's Intercontinental title. They start attacking each other and Miz leaves. Cole then tells us that AJ has arranged a non-title match between the two for later on tonight.

Sheamus is now making his way down to the ring for a match. His opponent is going to be Wade Barrett, a rematch from last week's Raw.

Match 7 - Sheamus vs. Wade Barrett
Mid-way through, Big Show comes out with a chair. They then cut to break. Back from break and Show is now sat on the ramp on the aforementioned chair, seemingly scouting his opponent. Very good match here. The finish comes with Big Show pulling down the ropes as Sheamus is going towards them so a DQ decision is called.
WINNER by DQ - Sheamus

Sheamus manages to clothesline Big Show out of the ring, further building their match in 2 weeks.
