2013 Hell in a Cell Kickoff Show Match:A breaking news story occurred on Sunday, Oct. 27 as WWE announced Curtis Axel was injured and would be unable to compete at Hell in a Cell. Due to the injury, the IC title match vs. Big E Langston was removed from the live stream "Kick off show" at 7:30 p.m. EST, and replaced with Kofi Kingston vs. Damien Sandow instead.
Tonight's PPV panel for the kickoff show consisted of Josh Matthews, Dolph Ziggler, Kaitlyn and R-Truth. Big E Langston eventually came to join them as well. They had a backstage segment with The Shield complaining about how Big Show cost them the tag titles, and saying they deserve a straight tag team title match rather than Triple Threat. Big E Langston and Dean Ambrose got into it a bit, with Big E eventually challenging Ambrose for his US Title.
There was a backstage segment involving The Miz trying to talk Vickie Guerrero into giving him a match with Bray Wyatt. Vickie told him he's not medically cleared, so Miz said he'll make it a fight on his own, leaving Vickie behind.
