And much like how Raw stole SmackDown's No Mercy PPV, SmackDown will be stealing back with WWE Hell in a Cell 2017.
It should be noted that the match felt really uncomfortable at this point, with fans in the arena and around the country (world) worrying about the well-being of these two men. Chucking Owens on top of Shane so that he could get the three count, the match was finally over as both men left Hell In A Cell as broken challengers. In the end though, The Usos won the match and are the new Tag Team champions. In a match that was promoted as being a brawl, it certainly lived up to expectations. Matt Wilansky has the recap, and ESPN Stats and Information's Sean Coyle rates the match on a scale of one-to-five. This, needless to say, is not ideal. He takes it here and wins the blowoff rematch at Survivor Series if it comes to it.
Owens picks up Shane and throws him crotch first into the cell door. They've put on solid matches in the past and Sunday should be no different. Despite not having much attention heading into Hell in a Cell, the match was pretty good with Orton hitting Rusev with an RKO for the win.
Considered as the devil's playground, the hell in a cell is a demonic structure which has given us some historic career making and career-ending matches over the years. We hit a PPV wall unfortunately. Read on the find out!
The Japanese star then beat Randy Orton in a No.1 Contenders Match to earn a rematch for the belt.
The New Day just passed the torch to The Usos tonight.
Gotta admit, I'm not super hyped for this event. They set the tone early that they're not fucking around and they're here to hurt some people.
So Hype Bros continue to fall down the ladder while Benjamin and Gable got a big win, with Benjamin showing no signs of ring rust whatsoever. Owens fought him off and continued to retreat down the cell as Shane followed him.
One of my favorite parts of the match was after Xavier Woods got beaten up while hand-cuffed.
With that being said, relax, get comfortable, or do whatever the hell you want actually, just as long as you ready to tune into another edition of the must-listen wrestling podcast! Maybe not, but it was great. We've seen him leap 40 plus feet from the steel titantron on more than one occasion, while his signature move involves a jump from the top rope, across the ring, and into a trash can which is propped against his opponent. They did insane things that also seemed believable and well thought out within the contexts of a caged brawl.
He watched as several big moments occurred. The New Day have elevated the tag team division to glorious heights not seen since the days of the Attitude Era.
"I mean who's the next great wrestler who can have a bad feud with Jinder to try and get him over?" That attempt landed Nakamura knee-first into the turnbuckle and Mahal pulled off a Khallas and he went for the countdown to retain a title he has held for a long time now. This can end up being a more intense rivalry with revenge on Styles mind.
