2015 WWE HELL IN A CELL PPV PARTICIPANTS’ HISTORY

Like I did last month with Night of Champions, I decided to write a special blog looking at this year’s WWE Hell In A Cell Pay-Per-View and each participants’ records and other facts. For the full history of the Pay-Per-View, check out the Hell In A Cell History page HERE on the site and for the history of the actual Hell In A Cell Match, click HERE.

Each match that has been announced, as of press time, will be listed. Roman Reigns is the only wrestler that is scheduled to compete that has competed in an opening match. And if his match against Bray Wyatt is the opening match, it will be the 1st time since 2009 that a Hell In A Cell Match will open a HIAC Pay-Per-View. As of press time, Randy Orton & Stardust are not scheduled to compete at the HIAC Pay-Per-View, therefore ending their streaks of the only wrestlers to compete at every HIAC Pay-Per-View.
