Madcap Moss vs. Happy Corbin Set For WWE Hell In A Cell

After weeks of feuding, Madcap Moss and Happy Corbin are set for a WWE WrestleMania Backlash rematch, as the two will compete in a No Holds Barred Match at WWE Hell in a Cell. 

In a segment during the June 3 episode of WWE SmackDown, Moss came out and said that he buried who he used to be when he was attacked by Corbin last month. Moss went on to demand that Corbin come down to the ring to face him and end things right now. Instead, Corbin walked out and began berating Moss, saying that Moss was just out there to beg for his job back, and that he’d consider it. Moss said the only thing he wanted was for Corbin to come down there so they could settle the score.

Corbin said that he would love to do that, but it looked like Moss was too emotional to really have him do that, so it looked like a bad idea. Unfortunately for Corbin, Adam Pearce quickly came out onto the stage, and said that the match would be official. Inside of the ring, Corbin attempted to use some underhanded tactics to come away with a win, using the referee as a shield initially. However, Moss finally snapped, grabbing a chair that Corbin had grabbed and attacking Corbin with it, causing him to be disqualified. After the match, Moss tried to trap Corbin’s neck in between the chair the same way that Corbin had done to him, but referees and WWE officials quickly ran in to stop it.  

Shortly after the match had ended, it was made official that the two would once again meet in the ring, this time at WWE’s Hell in a Cell, and in a No Holds Barred match. 

The official announcement, courtesy of the WWE website, is as follows:

The jokes are over, and this time it’s serious. What was once a merry partnership has dissolved into a ferocious rivalry that can only be settled in a vicious No Holds Barred Match at WWE Hell in a Cell.

When Madcap Moss stepped out from under Happy Corbin’s shadow by winning the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal, no one would have known that the venom between the two Superstars would become this potent.

Since turning on each other, Happy Corbin’s show “Happy Talk” has turned into “Angry Talk” with trophies being stolen and sneak attacks becoming the norm. This led to a showdown at WrestleMania Backlash, where Madcap Moss prevailed by defeating Corbin with a sunset flip.

Enraged with his loss, Corbin then gruesomely attacked Moss on the May 13 edition of SmackDown. With Moss’s head trapped in a steel chair, Corbin used the Andre the Giant Battle Royal Trophy to devastating effect, throwing the trophy down on Moss’s neck, thus sending Moss to the hospital with a cervical contusion.

When Moss returned to the blue brand from injury, he made it clear he is out for vengeance against his former partner. Moss and Corbin faced off in a rematch, where little time passed before Moss got to a steel chair, delivering brutal repeated blows to the back. When WWE Officials came down to quickly de-escalate the situation, Moss was livid, even striking a few of them. With the vitriol and animosity this palpable, it was no surprise WWE Official Adam Pearce then sanctioned a No Holds Barred Match between the two for WWE Hell in a Cell.

Will Moss be able to deliver justice to his former friend, or will the nefarious Corbin finally notch a win against his former partner? Find out at WWE Hell in a Cell, streaming live Sunday, June 5, at 8 ET/5 PT on Peacock in the United States and on WWE Network everywhere else.
