Cody Rhodes & Metro Boomin Announce Classic WWE PLE's Return

Cody Rhodes & Metro Boomin Announce Classic WWE PLE’s Return

For weeks, rumors circulated about WWE reviving the classic PLE event, Bad Blood. Recent reports suggested that the show would take place in Atlanta on October 5. These speculations have now been confirmed by a teaser trailer shared on social media by Atlanta-based music producer Metro Boomin. The teaser showcases Metro Boomin in a car with WWE Champion Cody Rhodes, as they stake out the State Farm Arena in anticipation of the event.

Originally titled “Badd Blood: In Your House,” Bad Blood made its debut in 1997, and it was memorable for featuring the first-ever Hell in a Cell match between The Undertaker and Shawn Michaels. This caged stipulation match became a hallmark for subsequent Bad Blood events, notably in 2003 and 2004, where Triple H faced off against Kevin Nash and Shawn Michaels, respectively. The 2004 edition was the last Bad Blood until its anticipated return this year.

The revival of Bad Blood appears to be an attempt to fill the gap left by the Hell in a Cell PLE, which was removed from the WWE calendar after 2022. The last two Hell in a Cell events took place in June rather than October, their initial slot in the schedule. Since then, WWE’s October PLE spot has seen different events every year, including Crown Jewel in 2021, Extreme Rules in 2022, and Fastlane in 2023.

With the announcement of Bad Blood’s return, fans have already begun speculating about potential matchups for the Hell in a Cell. Names being tossed around include Cody Rhodes vs. Randy Orton, Rhea Ripley vs. Liv Morgan, and Solo Sikoa vs. Roman Reigns. Additionally, there’s a buzz that WWE’s looser restrictions on blood could mean a return to the more intense and gory matches that Hell in a Cell was initially known for.
