We'll be here all night to bring you results and reactions for WWE Hell In A Cell. Shane McMahon vs. Kevin Owens in the cell. New Day vs. The Usos in the cell. Lots of action and we've got it all for you.

Kickoff Show Match: Chad Gable & Shelton Benjamin def. The Hype Bros


Standard fare for the Hype Bros. They couldn't get on the same page -- the breakup and feud is coming, which at least gives the two something to do since no one has done less with the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal trophy than Mojo Rawley. Gable and Benjamin are a fine team but they need something exciting also. Hence, being on the kickoff show.

Hell In A Cell: The Usos def. The New Day (c) to win the WWE Smackdown Tag Team Championship


This was beautiful. This was brutal. This was near perfect and a hell of a way to kick off the show. Both teams had great fire. They took huge risks and will be feeling this for a long time.

These teams are amazing together. I have said it a million times and I'm going to keep saying it.

Randy Orton def. Rusev

Not to be entirely dismissive, but who cares? This couldn't follow the tag match and nothing Randy Orton does is exciting. He won. Rusev should have as he's better. But this is not a just world.

Baron Corbin def. AJ Styles (c) & Tye Dillinger to win the WWE United States Championship

AJ Styles did that thing he's always doing where he reminds the world he's a simply amazing in-ring performer and Corbin "took advantage" as has been his character of late -- when he isn't stumbling in MitB cash-ins, big showdowns with Cena, and matches with Dillinger.

This was very good and Dillinger added to the match considerably, meaning his inclusion was a good idea.

Styles hit a Phenomenal Forearm on Dillinger. Corbin kicked Styles out of the ring and scored the pin to take the victory, meaning Styles lost his title without being pinned. Them's the breaks.

Charlotte Flair def. Natalya by DQ in a Smackdown Women's Championship Match


The crowd wasn't digging this. It was a perfectly fine match until the decision to have Natalya retain by attacking Charlotte with a chair.

This feud will keep going, but they don't quite click right with the crowd. Natalya isn't good in the heel role, and Charlotte isn't a particularly good face. It's hard to feel extreme sympathy for her given the history of her character.

Jinder Mahal (c) def. Shinsuke Nakamura to retain the WWE Championship


There was no doubt what the outcome was heading into the match. The WWE has been pushing Jinder and the India tour hard -- he's not losing the belt before that's all wrapped up.

The SummerSlam match between the two was bad -- this felt worse. The crowd was complete death outside of Nakamura's entrance and sporadic chants of his name. No one cares about or buys into Mahal as champion, but it is what it is.

Mahal won clean in the middle of the ring, which may be the biggest surprise of the match. It should also put this bad feud to bed. So, take the minor victories.

Bobby Roode def. Dolph Ziggler


The crowd has been dead for three straight matches now. Roode got the win after a back-and-forth series of pin attempts while holding the tights. Ziggler hit a Zig Zag after and it looks like the two will continue this thing for a while.

Not a bad match or anything, but it wasn't much of anything either. Ziggler came out and had them turn off his music, doing a sort of anti-entrance.

Kevin Owens def. Shane McMahon in a Hell in a Cell match


Exactly the spectacle match you'd expect. They brawled in the cage before heading to the top where the battle raged for several tense minutes before Owens began to descend from the top before being knocked off the cage halfway down and put through a table. Rather than going for a pin, McMahon then put Owens on top of the other announce table and attempted an elbow drop from the top of the cell. Sami Zayn(!) made the save, pulling Owens out of the way and clearing medics so Owens could score the pinfall for the victory.

It's a great move in the story of Owens and Zayn, and the match delivered as much as could reasonably be expected. Shane is a crazy person who should probably knock it off with the crazy risks, but it makes for really memorable moments.
