Hell in a Cell Structure & Rules
Hell in a Cell match takes place under a roofed steel cage. A special concept from WWE, the cell is bigger than a normal steel cage that is generally used in pro-wrestling matches. The cell is made of open-weave steel mesh & chain link fencing in form of a five-sided cuboid. Some ringside area is also included inside the cell structure and is generally used by the wrestlers during the match.
The match rules are very similar to a No Holds Barred match or street fight where wrestlers are free to use any tools at their disposal. Unlike the steel cage match, the wrestlers are allowed to leave the cage. The only way to win is via pinfall or submission inside the cage or on top of it also. A total of 42 Hell in a Cell matches taken place in WWE till now.
