WWE Hell in a Cell: Full Match Card, Start Time, Where to Watch

Published 10/23/2020, 9:24 AM EDT

WWE Hell in a Cell is only a few days away. The pay-per-view is built as one of the most gruesome ones in WWE and it will be the twelfth event under Hell in a Cell chronology (starting in 1998). This is probably the last one under the ThunderDome platform. Therefore, WWE is trying to make the best out of it.

As of now, there are only four matches on the official match card. Traditionally, two to three matches occur in the infamous Cell at the yearly event. In 2012, there was only one match inside the cell.

Out of the four confirmed matches, three are title matches. Interestingly, not only are people fighting for gold but also for acceptance and vengeance. After 2016 and 2009, this year will see three of the eponymous matches taking place.

Universal Championship – Roman Reigns (C) vs Jey Uso

Arguably the most interesting match in the pay-per-view, the fight for the Universal title will see cousins Roman Reigns and Jey Uso go head-to-head again.

Their last meeting saw Roman Reigns vehemently destroying Jey to gain his approval “the Tribal Chief.” The match ended with Roman as the winner after Jey’s twin Jimmy rushed in and threw a towel to save his brother.

However, Jey got his rematch the following week on SmackDown as Reigns said this match will have “higher stakes than any match has ever had in WWE history.”

The following week, Reigns revealed the match would not only take place in the cell but would be an “I Quit” match, with serious “consequences” for the loser. The match will be the first of its kind.

WWE Championship – Drew McIntyre (C) vs Randy Orton

The rivalry between Drew McIntyre and Randy Orton has been churning poison since SummerSlam. After three pay-per-views, the rivalry is still not over.


Randy Orton attacked legends (who helped McIntyre in the Ambulance match) on the night after Clash of Champions. This action invited the wrath of the Scottish Psychopath. The Cell match was confirmed on the following week on Raw as McIntyre accepted Orton’s challenge.

WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship – Bayley (C) vs Sasha Banks

Some friendships don’t end well, something that Bayley and Sasha Banks proved. Bayley turned on her best friend at PayBack as they lost their tag team titles to Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler.

After Bayley retained her SmackDown Women’s Championship via disqualification at Clash of Champions, Banks appeared and attacked Bayley with a steel chair.

On the following SmackDown, Banks challenged Bayley for the title. Banks won the ensuing match via disqualification after Bayley attacked her with a steel chair.

In a backstage segment, Banks challenged Bayley to another championship match at Hell in a Cell inside the steel structure, which was confirmed the next day. This will be Banks’ third match inside the cell.

Singles Match – Jeff Hardy vs Elias

Elias made his surprise return to WWE television on Raw. After being selected by Raw, the musician boldly announced his comeback by breaking his guitar on Jeff Hardy. The returning Elias still believed that Jeff Hardy was responsible for his hit and run attack months ago that happened on SmackDown.

A disguised Hardy took a swing at him with an electric guitar as Elias concluded his unforgettable concert performance. Last week, he clearly mentioned he had nothing to do with the bygone car attack. Now, these two will be involved in a match at Hell in a Cell 2020.
