The big story coming out of Hell in a Cell was Sami Zayn helping Kevin Owens escape Shane McMahon’s leap from the top of the cage. Perhaps Sami will explain that he helped Owens because he wants to help the McMahon family because he knows how far Owens will go when pushed. Or they will form an alliance, either scenario is possible.

The Usos picked up the championship win in a great opening Hell in a Cell match. Natalya retained her title via DQ and Baron Corbin breaks his skid by winning his first singles title on the WWE main roster.
