WWE Hell in a Cell 2021 live stream: How to watch without extra PPV fees now

by Joseph K. Clark

The WWE is rolling out its Thunderdome for the last time at Hell in a Cell 2021 at the Yuengling Center in Tampa, Florida, and we have all the details on how you can watch the event on T.V. or online.

First held back in 2009, Hell in a Cell is a pay-per-view (PPV) event typically held in October. This year though, will be the first time the event is held in June, and while fans will be in attendance at future WWE events, there won’t be any in the crowd tonight. Instead, select fans can participate virtually through the promotion’s Thunderdome, a video conferencing system for groups. Hell in a Cell gets its name because a cage will be lowered over the ring for select matches at the event.

This year Drew McIntyre will challenge Bobby Lashley for the WWE Championship in the first of two Hell in a Cell matches. While signing the contract before the event, McIntyre requested that his game against Lashley occur inside Hell in a Cell. Lashley accepted his terms on the condition that if McIntyre lost tonight, he wouldn’t get another shot at the title while Lashley was still the champion.

During the second Hell in a Cell match of the evening, Bianca Belair must defend her SmackDown Women’s Championship title against a challenge from Bayley. Earlier this year, she lost to Belair at WrestleMania Backlash in May, but on SmackDown, Belair challenged Bayley to a rematch and accepted it.


Although not a Hell in a Cell match, there will be another championship fight at tonight’s event when Charlotte Flair challenges Rhea Ripley for her Raw Women’s Championship title. On the card, Alexa Bliss will go up against Shayna Baszler in a singles match, Kevin Owens will face off against Sami Zayn in a singles match, and Cesaro will take on Seth Rollins in a singles match.

Whether you’re tuning in to see your favorite wrestlers from the WWE enter the devil’s playground or want to see the promotion’s last Thunderdome event, we’ll show you exactly how to watch WWE Hell in a Cell 2021 from anywhere in the world.

Like with the WWE’s other recent events, wrestling fans in the U.S. can watch Hell in a Cell beginning at 7 pm E.T. / 4 pm P.T. on NBC’s streaming service Peacock without paying additional PPV fees.

Peacock offers three different plans to choose from in the form of Free, Premium for $5 per month or $49.99 for the year, and Premium Plus for $10 per month or $99.99 for the year. While other content on the streaming service can be watched with just a Free plan, you must sign up for a Premium one to watch the WWE on Peacock.
