The week preceding a pay-per-view is always a busy one for the WWE, and this week has been no different. With Hell in a Cell set for Sunday, the WWE has been hard at work, trying to provide last-minute build for the big matches and finalizing the rest of the card as well.
While the CM Punk vs. Ryback WWE championship match has definitely been at the forefront of WWE programming over the last couple of weeks, there were other angles worth following this week as well. The most notable was A.J. Lee resigning as general manager of Raw due to accusations that she had an affair with John Cena.
There has been plenty going on outside the ring as well. A WWE legend and current WWE superstar are rumored to be returning in the near future. Meanwhile, the WWE is using new means to bolster its divas division, while a part-time WWE star may be around for longer than many initially anticipated.
Here are the biggest news stories and rumors regarding the WWE for the week beginning on Oct. 21 as Hell in a Cell draws near.
