WWE’s Hell in a Cell will take place in the Little Caesar’s Arena on Oct. 8, 2017, and here is the full match card, updates and everything you need to know about the show. Though it feels as though less time went into this event, WWE still put together a solid card that will no doubt entertain fans. The main show starts at 8:00 p.m. on the WWE Network or your pay-per-view provider, but if you’re really jonesing for some wrestling action, the kick-off show begins one hour earlier at 7:00 p.m. on YouTube.
Shelton Benjamin and Chad Gable vs The Hype Bros
Hell In A Cell’s kick off show will feature just one match at the time of typing this—the newly formed team of Shelton Benjamin and Chad Gable taking on The Hype Bros. Somewhat of a nothing match at this point with WWE not doing much with the 2017 version of The World’s Greatest Tag Team, and the only action we’ll likely see in terms of an angle is the continuation of the cracks continuing to show between Zack Ryder and Mojo Rawley.
Randy Orton vs Rusev
No one interrupts Rusev Day and gets away with it! At Hell In A Cell, we will see The Bulgarian Brute look to seek out some revenge against Randy Orton and finally be able to enjoy a happy Rusev Day. If everything goes to plan it will hopefully start Rusev on the road to bigger and better things. The former United States Champion has been demanding a title match on and off since before he even debuted on SmackDown Live. Plus as of right now, his former understudy Jinder Mahal is WWE Champion, and that has to sting considering Rusev has never reached those dizzy heights.

Dolph Ziggler vs Bobby Roode
Who knew that WWE could somehow make Dolph Ziggler even more annoying than he already was? Well, they have. For weeks, now we have witnessed The Showoff complaining about basically every Superstar from history that has ever had a half decent entrance. If one man was ever going to take issue with those complaints it’s Bobby Roode. In his WWE pay-per-view debut, The Glorious One will look to prove to Ziggler that he is so much more than a glamorous robe and a catchy theme song, and hopefully put a swift end to this latest version of Ziggler in the process.
Natalya vs Charlotte Flair for the SmackDown Women’s Championship
Natalya being Women’s Champion has been a long time coming. Unfortunately, the booking of the blue brand’s Women’s division hasn’t exactly been stellar since she became its figurehead. Hopefully, on Sunday, that will all change. Charlotte has been absent from WWE as of late for obvious reasons, but she is very much back in the picture right now. As much as Natalya deserves that Women’s Championship, you would have to imagine that it’s already on its way to Baby Flair. Not at Hell In A Cell though. WWE already announced that this match will also take place at Starrcade in November. That show taking place in the heart of Flair country means it’ll likely be where Charlotte takes the Queen Of Hearts’ crown.
New Day vs The Usos for the SmackDown Tag Team Championships
This one could very well be the match of the night at Hell In A Cell this Sunday. We’ve already seen these two teams trade the titles back and forth, and steal the show at the last two events, not to mention their amazing performance on SmackDown Live in a Street Fight. Well, this long and epic rivalry is about to come to an end, and it will happen inside Hell In A Cell. These five men put WWE tag team wrestling on the map during the second half of 2017, and it will be interesting to see what more they could possibly bring to this rivalry, and all inside WWE’s most demonic structure.
AJ Styles vs Baron Corbin for the United States Championship
Baron Corbin has been going through a pretty tough time of it as of late as AJ Styles gleefully pointed out to us during the go-home edition of SmackDown Live. From his failed cash in to his loss to John Cena to being rolled up by Tye Dillinger this past Tuesday, it’s a miracle that he managed to earn himself a United States Championship match at all. This rivalry has constantly had a previously mentioned third party involved—The Perfect 10 Tye Dillinger. Many fans were expecting this to be made into a triple threat but instead, it has remained a one on one, and expect Baron Corbin’s bad time to continue beyond Sunday night in Detroit.
Jinder Mahal vs Shinsuke Nakamura for the WWE Championship
Most would believe that at a pay-per-view titled Hell In A Cell the WWE Championship match would be the main event and take place inside the structure. Well, neither of those things are the case, and that should probably set some alarm bells off in WWE’s head. The WWE Championship is nowhere near the level that it deserves to be right now, and that’s exactly why The Modern Day Maharajah should not still be champion beyond this Sunday. The title needs a boost, Nakamura needs a boost, so how about killing two birds with one stone by putting the strap on the King of Strong Style in Detroit this weekend?
Shane McMahon vs Kevin Owens
When it comes to this Hell In A Cell show, it’s abundantly clear that WWE has been putting all of its time and effort into one particular match, the Hell In A Cell showdown between Kevin Owens and Shane McMahon. From the violent beatdown of Vince McMahon to the face to face between the pair of them on SmackDown Live this past week, WWE has quite rightly made this match feel like a big-time deal. Owens promised that he will throw Shane-O Mac from the top of the cell. Normally that would be an absurd claim to make, with McMahon, however, we’re all very aware that could actually happen.
