Reaction to What Was Right & Wrong At WWE’s Hell In A Cell

Justin LaBar

HIAC_featureEvery Monday and Friday, I have a wrestling column in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Today I wrote my reaction on WWE's Hell in a Cell pay-per-view. The following is an excerpt:

The spot of the night — perhaps the match of the night — was the opening contest. The triple-threat tag-team match was a work of art. Opening a pay-per-view strong is as important as finishing strong. Cody Rhodes suplexing Seth Rollins from the top rope to the outside of the ring on top of the rest of the match's participants garnered one of those memorable and organic energized crowd reactions for the next minute. The pay-per-view cost of admission was delivered as much as possible in that match alone.

Kane returned after The Miz was beat down by members of the Wyatt family. Kane got rid of the Wyatts but then attacked Miz. One can only hope Kane joins the faction, as I've been fantasy booking for five months.

Cena returned and won the World Heavyweight Championship. I don't think Cena gets very far with the title. It would be a smart move to do a big promotional build to him making his “SmackDown” debut as the champion and have Damien Sandow cash in on that night. It would be fitting for the evening and could happen when they tape the show Tuesday. This would get three days of buzz from the fans, as it would get spoiled on the Internet.

Sandow versus Cena in Cena's hometown of Boston for “Survivor Series.” Sounds like a great rub for Sandow.
