WWE Hell in a Cell is a professional wrestling event produced annually by World Wrestling Entertainment, a Connecticut–based promotion, and broadcast live and available only through pay-per-view (PPV). The event was established in 2009, replacing No Mercy in the early October slot of WWE's pay-per-view calendar.

The concept of the show is based around WWE's established Hell in a Cell match, in which competitors fight inside a 20-foot-high roofed cell structure surrounding the ring and ringside area. Each main event match of the card is contested under the Hell in a Cell stipulation. Hell in a Cell was chosen over No Escape, Locked Up and Rage in a Cage.

Since its origin, the event has been held only in indoor arenas in the United States. Championship bouts are scheduled on every card, with the lower-tier titles featured on the undercard and the top-tier featured on the main card. Under the Brand Extension, WWE assigns its performers to either Raw or SmackDown, which cause matches to be set up between wrestlers on the same show.
