There's no denying it:
is in a holding pattern until Money in the Bank next month. Roman Reigns unified the WWE and Universal Championship titles at WrestleMania, but Hell in a Cell marks the second pay-per-view in a row where he hasn't defended it. The headlining match, a Hell in a Cell bout between Seth Rollins and Cody Rhodes, isn't even for a title.
But as last months' Backlash showed, nonmonumental shows can still be a lot of fun. The aforementioned main event should be an excellent match. The same can be said for the triple threat match for the Raw Women's Championship, which pits Bianca Belair against Asuka and Becky Lynch. To give the show a touch more gravitas, on Friday WWE added a SmackDown Women's Championship contest featuring champ Ronda Rousey and challenger Natalya.

How to watch: Peacock, WWE Network
As you probably know by now, Peacock is the new home of WWE's pay-per-views. The WWE Network has, in essence, migrated to NBC's Peacock streaming service, and that's where you'll go to watch Hell in a Cell. Peacock has three tiers: Free, Premium and Premium Plus. To watch WWE content, you'll need a Premium subscription. The good news is, that'll set you back $5 a month, less than the $10 for WWE Network.
If you're outside of the US, you'll watch Hell in a Cell on the WWE Network as usual.
