HIAC 2015 Owens v Ryback

Ryback will have his chance to regain the Intercontinental Championship from Kevin Owens when he challenges KO for the title at Hell in a Cell.

Owens dethroned The Big Guy at WWE Night of Champions, fulfilling his crusade of not only becoming a titleholder in WWE, but also winning the champion’s purse. WWE’s outspoken prizefighter scored the milestone pin after raking Ryback’s eyes behind the referee’s back, paving the way for an underhanded victory.

He has since been careful to pick his spots against The Human Wrecking Ball. During a grueling rematch on the Oct. 2 SmackDown, Owens — who, moments earlier, had narrowly dodged being Shell Shocked — opted to lose by count-out to preserve his championship reign. A subsequent attempt to ambush The Big Guy, however, turned sour, as Ryback laid waste to Owens.

KO’s blatant show of disrespect has awakened a long-dormant monster inside of Ryback, according to The Big Guy. With an opportunity to recapture the Intercontinental Title in sight, will Hell in a Cell turn into “feeding time” for Ryback?

Or can Owens — a supremely dangerous and aggressive brawler, even when he’s competing within the rules — back up his trash talk and sneak attacks by retaining one of the most prestigious titles in WWE?
