What about The Kickoff pre-show?
A panel of WWE greats and pundits will break down all the action to come during the WWE Hell in a Cell Kickoff pre-show. No matches have been confirmed for the build-up slot so far, but there is likely to be at least one contest. This will start at 6pm local time and at 10pm in the UK.
What is the main event?
The main event of the evening will probably be the latest chapter in a scintillating feud between Roman Reigns and Jey Uso. At Clash of Champions, Roman defeated Jey to retain the Universal Championship, after Jey’s injured brother Jimmy threw in the towel. However, Jey still refused to acknowledge Reigns as the tribal chief of the Anoa’i family.
On the following SmackDown when a celebration was held to mark Roman’s ascent, and furious that Jey wouldn’t bend to his will, Reigns gave him another shot at the belt in Hell in a Cell. But he later revealed it would be the first-ever “I Quit” match inside Hell in a Cell. If Jey loses, he and his brother Jimmy will have to take orders and acknowledge Reigns as the Tribal Chief.

At SummerSlam, Drew McIntyre defeated Randy Orton to retain the WWE Championship. Orton earned himself a rematch at Clash of Champions, where McIntyre again retained, this time in an ambulance match. During the bout, several legends who Orton had attacked returned to seek vengeance, including Big Show, Christian, Shawn Michaels and Ric Flair.
The next night on Raw, McIntyre celebrated with the legends, but before the show ended, Randy attacked all of the greats backstage. He has now challenged Drew to a Hell in a Cell match, which the big Scot accepted.
What about the women’s championships?
Bayley defends the SmackDown Women’s Championship versus her former best friend Sasha Banks in Hell in a Cell. At Payback, the duo lost WWE Women’s tag team titles to Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler. When they failed to win the belts back on the following SmackDown, Bayley turned on Sasha and gave her a beating.
Banks has since battered Bayley with a steel chair, a favour Bayley returned in a successful defence of her title, when Sasha won by disqualification, meaning the belt didn’t change hands. Now at Hell in a Cell there will be no DQ, so who comes out on top?
Will there be a tag team match?
Most probably, but there’s not one announced as of yet.
What are the other key matches on the card?
Jeff Hardy squares off with Elias in a battle between two musical maestros. Yes, two, it’s not just Elias who can wield a guitar – you mean to tell me you haven’t listened to Hardy’s band PeroxWhy?Gen? Fair enough.
On Raw this week, Elias performed a concert, but when he teased an encore, was attacked by a member of his band dressed all in black – Jeffrey. Hardy denies that he was the one who hit Elias with a car this summer, but Elias has now issued a challenge to the Charismatic Enigma.
Meanwhile, Otis puts his Money in the Bank contract on the line against The Miz, with the winner earning a guaranteed shot at a world title, at any place, anywhere, any time.
1. Jeff Hardy vs. Elias Singles – Singles match
2. Otis (MITB) vs The Miz – Singles match for the Money in the Bank contract
3. Bayley (c) vs. Sasha Banks – Hell in a Cell match for the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship
