Welcome to Ringside News’ live results, highlights, winners and reactions for the Hell In A Cell 2021 PPV.

Of course, seeing as it’s the Hell In A Cell we have two such matches on hand. Drew McIntyre challenges Bobby Lashley for the WWE Championship, while Bianca Belair takes on Bayley. Both these matches take place inside the Cell and we’ve already had one of those matches this week on SmackDown. What are you thoughts on these matches? Which one are you more excited for? Let us know below!
The rest of the card tonight consists of Kevin Owens Vs. Sami Zayn, Shayna Baszler Vs. Alexa Bliss, Cesaro Vs. Seth Rollins, and the RAW Women’s Championship bout between Rhea Ripley and Charlotte Flair. It’s odd to not have the US Title, Intercontinental Title, or either brand’s Tag Titles on a PPV, but it could be a sleeper show.
