Hell in a cell this year was one of those PPVs that did not create much buzz mostly due to sloppy booking and the upcoming Super Show Down. Let us find out if WWE managed to pull off a surprise or if it was a dud as expected.


The Cell

So that this does not become a recurring theme we would like to get this out of the way at the very beginning. For whatever reason WWE decided to paint the entire cell a bright red which looked cool when the camera panned out but for the rest of the show was distracting and an eyesore. When the match was shown from outside the cage it was very difficult to see what was going in the ring. For a company of such magnitude, such an oversight is almost unforgiveable.

Rusev Day come to a stuttering stop

The first thing that peeves us about this match is that it was on the pre-show. It was understandable but still and injustice to all the wrestlers involved. The match itself was pretty good with the expected back and forth.

Big E put in quite a few power moves while English and Kofi Kingston gave the high-flying entertainment. Rusev was his usual awesome self. Rusev Day should have won here as the tag division needs something fresh. While the match itself was great, this does nothing for either team and starts the PPV on a sour note.

Jeff Hardy destroys himself

This was a surprisingly good match. The high-flying and risky style of Hardy meshes well with the slow and methodical approach taken by Orton. The match had a recurring theme where Jeff Hardy would try to build some momentum only to be thwarted by Randy Orton.

There were quite a few painful spots befitting a match inside the cage. The ending was also great and somewhat in trademark Jeff Hardy fashion. As an opening match, it was of decent length and did not have any tasteless shenanigans.
