Hell in a Cell is WWE's next pay-per-view event, and it takes place on Sunday Oct. 25. There are only five official matches announced for the show -- three of which are Hell in a Cell matches -- so expect a few new ones to be added on the night. 

Clash of Champions ended with Roman Reigns crowning himself the Tribal Chief as he raised the Universal Championship over the brutalized body of his cousin, Jey Uso. At Hell in a Cell on Sunday, the two will battle once again, but this time, as you can probably guess by now, it'll be inside the Hell in a Cell cage... and it'll be an I Quit match.

In the two other Hell in a Cell bouts, Drew McIntyre will defend his WWE Championship (again) against Randy Orton, and Sasha Banks challenges for Bayley's SmackDown Women's Championship. 

Start times

As with Raw and SmackDown, Hell in a Cell will air from Orlando's Amway Center, known as WWE's ThunderDome. The main card starts both days at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT. If you're a paid WWE Network subscriber -- at $9.99 a month -- you can watch Hell in a Cell live for no extra cost. Otherwise, you'll need to contact your local cable provider. 

Viewers in the UK will have to stay up late to watch Hell in a Cell; the show starts 11 p.m. Sunday UK time. Hell in a Cell starts for Australians at 10 a.m. AEST on Monday.
