Hell In a Cell '16 (Recap and Review)

Hello Dwellers and Welcome to the Basement... 

Tonight was the WWE's Hell in a Cell pay-per-view, featuring the stars of Monday Night RAW, and yes Charlotte vs Sasha Banks closed the show, but was it an enjoyable wrestling event?





QUICK NOTES
  • Don't remember who Cedric Alexander pinned, but I loved that he was selling Cedric's lumbar-check finisher by arching his back up from the mat while keeping his shoulders down to allow Cedric to get the win.
  • Roman Reigns thrives in gimmick matches because it hides the fact he can't work and he has an incredibly limited move-set  
  • I personally would've booked Rusev to use the chain he had IN HIS HANDS to choke out Reigns while he was in the accolade to get the win, then come back with these two one more time in a Russian Chain Match
  • Really liked the selling Bayley was doing selling her shoulder injury in her short match with Dana Brooke, who is also making progress as a performer
  • The Kevin Owens / Seth Rollins match basically became pointless the second Chris Jericho got involved, totally lost interest in the match, which is amazing considering I don't care at all for Owens
  • Surprised that Brian Kendrick won the Cruiserweight title, but the story made sense with him cheating to win the title, question is does TJ Perkins get it back in a rematch
  • I really hate the fact that Mick Foley was a focus in the promo for the Charlotte vs Sasha Banks match, and that the start of the match was a carbon copy of the abomination of the King of The Ring 1998 Hell in a Cell match with Foley as Mankind vs The Undertaker
  • The first women's hell in a cell match was great, and I'm hoping it leads to SmackDown doing a women's Elimination Chamber match (assuming they get that pay-per-view name and if it gets brought back by the WWE)
