AJ Lee defeated Brie Bella to retain the Divas Championship.
AJ Lee retains in a pretty decent Divas match. The weight and size are comparable, which makes it believable for Lee to potentially lose. I hate seeing Divas with completely different sizes. It makes it look like Mysterio vs. Taker. A size differential like that is hard for me to believe. Nikki Bella accidentally gets involved from the outside which costs her twin the match. Lee and Bella should have been given more time. Cut out the Fandango gimmick or the Los Matadores match for five more minutes here. I wonder if WWE will be splitting the twins up anytime soon. Is this the beginning of that? If they do that, do not let it overshadow your best Diva in the past decade.
Randy Orton defeated Daniel Bryan to win the WWE Championship inside Hell in a Cell.
We knew something would happen in this match with Triple H and Shawn Michaels. After a highly contested bout that took close to twenty minutes, Bryan and Orton finally came to the conclusion. After kicks and plenty of nice spots, Michaels took a bump and was out. Triple H ordered the cell door to be opened so he can get inside.Daniel Bryan meets Triple H with a running knee, but gets hit with Sweet Chin Music from Michaels. Randy Orton makes the cover and we have a new champion. I liked the ending but did not love it. Once again, WWE overshadows the talent of Daniel Bryan with Orton, Triple H, and Shawn Michaels. Some things never change in the WWE. I love Daniel Bryan and how great he is in the ring, I really do, but do we want him to be the WWE Champion after months of not getting it? The luster has worn off for me because he is not evolving anymore right now. He needs to slightly change his character and add new personality traits to it. One word chant only gets you so far. Even Austin had more than "what." What is the payoff now? I do not want Michaels back in a match. I do want Triple H back in the ring before WrestleMania. Vince will be the biggest piece to the puzzle.
WWE Hell in a Cell Grade: B
Note: The return of Kane was too quick. It was too random. What is the point of him coming back for revenge against Wyatt right now? Just because his movie is over? They put no effort into his return. He chokeslams Miz and fights off The Wyatt Family. He should've joined the heels.
