Hell in a Cell 2021 is gone to the archives, and Dave Meltzer as per tradition for a long time now has judged it through his stars (ranging from 1 to 5 but which can go below or above these figures). Here are the assessments of the famous reporter on the PPV aired from the Yuengling Center in Tampa, Florida.
Kick-off: Single match: Natalya vs Mandy Rose: 3.00 / 5 Main Card: WWE Smackdown Women's Championship Hell in a Cell match: Bianca Belair vs Bayley: 3.5 / 5 Single match: Seth Rollins vs Cesaro: 3.5 / 5 Single match: Alexa Bliss vs Shayna Baszler: 1.00 / 5 Single match: Sami Zayn vs Kevin Owens: 3.75 / 5 WWE Raw Women's Championship match: Charlotte Flair vs Rhea Ripley: 3.25 / 5 WWE Championship Hell in a Cell match: Bobby Lashley vs Drew Mcintyre: 4.00 / 5 As we can see, the American journalist has positively evaluated the ppv.
As expected, the match with the lowest rating was the one involving Alexa Bliss vs Shayna Baszler, which caused a lot of discussion in the WWE Universe. The kick-off match between Natalya vs Mandy Rose received 3 stars out of 5.

The contest valid for the Raw Women's Championship between Charlotte Flair and Rhea Ripley got 3.25 stars. The first Hell in a Cell match of the evening between Bianca Belair vs Bayley valid for the WWE Smackdown Women's Championship and the dispute between Seth Rollins vs Cesaro obtained the same rating and that is 3.50 stars out of 5.
The match between Sami Zayn vs Kevin Owens has received 3.75 stars, and the main event between Drew Mcintyre vs Bobby Lashley inside the infernal cage valid for the WWE Championship received the highest rating and that is 4 stars out of 5 (contention that provided that if the Scotsman lost that he would not have more no titled chance, the match was won by the African American athlete thanks to his manager MVP).
During a recent edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer said that he wouldn't be surprised to see Alexa Bliss and Charlotte Flair switch brands during the Superstar Shake-up. He also said that The Miz could've swapped places with Jinder Mahal if he hadn't dropped the Intercontinental title.
Earlier in 2018, there were a number of reports suggesting that Charlotte would move to Raw during the Superstar Shake-up and eventually headline WrestleMania 35 with Ronda Rousey. This scenario will likely come to fruition.
