WWE Hell in a Cell 2013 Results: Live Reaction and Review
Welcome to Bleacher Report's live Hell in a Cell coverage. This year's show comes to us from the American Airlines Arena in Miami, FL.
There are several big matches set to take place, but one match we now know we won't see is Curtis Axel vs. Big E. Langston.
WWE.com announced that Axel has been injured, and the match we will now see is Kofi Kingston vs. Damien Sandow. This is a blow to Langston as he was just starting to receive a push, but WWE might still find a way to put him in the pay-per-view.
Shawn Michaels will referee the match between Randy Orton and Daniel Bryan for the WWE title, and John Cena will make his return to take on Alberto Del Rio for the World title.
The Rhodes brothers will defend their tag titles against The Shield and The Usos, CM Punk will face Ryback and Paul Heyman inside a cell and AJ will defend the Divas title against Brie Bella.
Los Matadores are also set to take on The Real Americans in tag team action.
Who will walk out of Hell in a Cell as the WWE champion?
Can John Cena win the World title in his return match?
Will Damien Sandow finally cash in his briefcase?
What role, if any, will Big Show and Triple H play at the PPV?
And lastly, can Cody Rhodes and Goldust retain their title against two other teams?
Make sure to bookmark this page and come back on Sunday at the start of Hell in a Cell for answers to all of these questions. Bleacher Report will have live coverage of all the action!
