It’s not often that the kick-off show features one of the most exciting matches of a pay-per-view. We got to see Sin Cara, Lince Dorado, and Cedric Alexander take on Drew Gulak, Tony Nese, and Ariya Daivari in a 6-man tag team match. The action was fast paced and Cedric Alexander picked up a win for his team with the LumbarCheck on Drew Gulak.
Just look at that hangtime:October 30, 2016
The next match we got was Roman Reigns vs. Rusev inside Hell in a Cell. This was more of an all out brawl than a wrestling match. The action was slow and it looked like neither competitor was interested in being there. Roman Reigns picked up the win with a spear. The entrances were the most entertaining part of this match.
Bayley vs. Dana Brooke was just as boring as you may imagine. It looks like Bayley has peaked in just a few months after joining RAW. They need to do something interesting with her character arc or she just might end up back in the shadows soon.
The Club (Gallows and Anderson) vs. Enzo Amore and Big Cass was a solid tag-team bout with Enzo once again being pinned after the Magic Killer. Perhaps, it’s time Bigg Cass dropped his partner?October 31, 2016
Next up, two standout superstars from the RAW roster, Seth Rollins and WWE Universal Champion, Kevin Owens. Their Hell in a Cell match made up for the poor performances earlier in the night and even Chris Jericho got involved to help Kevin Owens pick up the win. Not Undertaker vs. Mick Foley epic but clearly the match of the night.
Highlight of the match? Powerbomb through two tables. Woah:October 31, 2016
Brian Kendrick picked up a victory against TJ Perkins, to become the new WWE Cruiserweight Champion, in an entertaining cruiserweight match. Kendrick proved, once again, that he was the best mat wrestler in the division and hopefully, will move on to greater things.
Cesaro and Sheamus picked up a victory against the New Day (Xavier Woods and Big E) via disqualification when Kofi Kingston interfered in the match by hitting a Trouble in Paradise on Sheamus. The constant bickering between the two heavyweights works and if they continue selling it so well they will certainly have tag-team gold coming their way in the near future.
Just look at both of them:October 31, 2016
The main event featured Sasha Banks defending her Woman’s Championship against Charlotte in Hell in a Cell. If you’re wondering why WWE thought of closing the pay-per-view with a woman’s match, a couple of minutes in and you wouldn’t have any doubts. The action was intense and the crowd was enjoying every second of it. Charlotte picked up the victory with Natural Selection after one of the most brutal women’s matches we’ve ever seen. Both superstars have bright futures indeed.
Powerbomb through the announce table anyone?October 31, 2016
