— Former WWE Universal champion Brock Lesnar is backstage at tonight’s WWE Hell in a Cell, the first time he’s been backstage at a WWE show since dropping the title at SummerSlam. According to PW Insider, Lesnar is walking around in the back in full view of all the other talent and officials, so the company is not making any attempt to hide him as they usually do for surprise appearances. As such, it remains unclear if Lesnar is scheduled to appear on camera at the PPV tonight.
— Matt Hardy is backstage at Hell in a Cell, after apparently retiring from in-ring competition after last night’s house show in Corpus Christi. This isn’t really a surprise as Hardy has been backstage at recent WWE events working as a producer.
— Nia Jax, who has been off of TV while nursing a reported leg injury, is also backstage tonight at the PPV but whether she is involved in the show is also unknown.
