|Hell in a Cell chronology|
Hell in a Cell (2009) was a professional wrestling pay-per-view (PPV) event produced by International Wrestling Entertainment (IWE), which took place on October 4, 2009 at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. It was the first Hell in a Cell event and featured talent from the Meltdown and Fusion brands. Eight matches took place on the event's card.
The show was what is known as a supercard, which featured more than one main event match. The concept of the show was that each of these main event matches would be contested as Hell in a Cell matches. The main events of the evening included D-Generation X's Triple K and Ryan Barnhart defeating The Legacy's Mark Semmler and Kyle Johnson, Kevin McAlmond defeating Dustin Simpson to win the IWE Championship, and Martin McAlmond defeating Justin Eldridge to win the World Heavyweight Championship.
Other matches featured on the show were Joe Linderman defending the IWE Intercontinental Championship against Nick Kessler, Sari Pasma versus Kassi Austin for the IWE Divas Championship, Unified IWE Tag Team Champions Kris McGowan and The Big Marc versus Jesse Dern and Scott Wright, Dax Hoovestall facing Blake Wheeler, and a Triple Threat match for the IWE United States Championship among Jose Serrano, Joe Smith and Charlie Wilson.
The pay-per-view drew 283,000 buys, and is up from the 261,000 buys No Mercy 2008 got.
