Playing a New Tune.
Nine nights before WWE Hell in a Cell, the 843rd edition of WWE Thursday Night SmackDown came to you from the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati, OH. After The New Day took advantage of some miscommunication between Randy Orton and Dean Ambrose to score a big win on RAW, “The Lunatic Fringe” would be looking to avenge the loss on SmackDown as Cincinnati’s own Dean Ambrose would team with the #1 Contenders for the WWE Tag Team Titles at WWE Hell in a Cell, The Dudley Boyz, to face WWE Tag Team Champions The New Day in a 6-Man Tag Match! Can The New Day’s newfound mean streak overcome the challenge of Dean Ambrose & The Dudley Boyz or will Ambrose & The Dudleyz pick up some momentum as WWE Hell in a Cell draws ever closer?
