Hell in a Cell 2018 featured some surprisingly great undercard matches and some not as good (but still pretty enjoyable) main events.
The RAW before Hell in a Cell didn’t contain anything particularly remarkable, but it was an alright show overall.
Ziggler and McIntyre force their way into a match, The Shield gets in trouble with the law, the Authors of Pain get a new manager, Dana Brooke gets fed up, Bobby Roode gets a tag partner, and Shawn Michaels encounters The Undertaker on a not great episode of RAW.
Trish Stratus returns, Kevin Owens goes all in against Seth Rollins, Braun Strowman has a cunning plan, and more on a mostly good and entertaining episode of RAW.
Finn Balor finally gets his long-awaited Universal Title match on a pretty good episode of RAW.
The final RAW before Summer Slam added some anger to Reigns and Lesnar, some momentum for Corbin and Strowman, and a lunatic to Rollins and Ziggler.
Ronda Rousey (finally) makes her in-ring debut on RAW, Ruby Riott returns from injury, Rollins is left alone to take on Ziggler and McIntyre, and more on an okay episode of RAW that, even though it had a lot of matches, was light on wrestling.

This was an okay episode of RAW with a mixture of good and mediocre segments, highlighted by an entertaining performance from Ruby Riott in a gauntlet match to determine the final woman to enter the Money in the Bank match.
AN okay episode of RAW featured some “friendly competition” between Balor and Strowman, a fatal four way qualifying match for the female Money in the Bank match, Chad Gable taking on Dolph Ziggler, and much more.
Money in the Bank continues to shape up with three more qualifying matches, and Seth Rollins once again attempts to steal the show with another IC Title match on this pretty good episode of RAW.
Superstars from RAW begin to make their way to Money in the Bank in some qualifying matches including some nice triple threats for the men and the women.
RAW ventures to Canada where Owens and Zayn are treated like heroes, Titus O’Neil makes fun of himself, Sasha Banks takes on The Riott Squad, and Balor convinces Rollins to put his IC Title on the line!
With the roster shenanigans over the past couple of weeks, RAW attempts to settle into new feuds while getting ready for the Greatest Royal Rumble in four days.
The Superstar Shakeup brings the promise of new feuds, though this episode of RAW was more about spectacle than action.
Pete Dunne puts his title on the line against Johnny Gargano, and Ruby Riot attempts to settle things with Sonya Deville on an episode of NXT that is essentially a Takeover wrap-up (with two very good matches).
NXT provides another great Takeover with a series of fantastic matches leading up to the chaotic and violent return of War Games!
The last NXT before Takeover: Brooklyn III gave decent time to the women’s and men’s title matches. Thought nothing major happened, it was a good lead-in for the big show this weekend.
The Street Profits make their NXT TV debut, Andrade Almas looks to get back on track against No Way Jose, and Oney Lorcan gives Danny Burch a rematch in an okay but rather uneventful episode of NXT.
Kassius Ohno and Hideo Itami battle in an attempt to settle their differences in an episode of NXT that did a lot of setting up but not much paying off.
