What we schooled from WWE Hell in a Cell 2015
October 26, 2015 - WWE
Sunday night’s Hell in a Cell pay-per-view from a Staples Center in Los Angeles featured a share of surprises. It was headlined by a final compare in a Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar adversary and seemed to underline a final section in several ongoing storylines.
Here’s all that happened and what it all means.
Dolph Ziggler, Cesaro Neville def. Rusev, Sheamus King Barrett
In a rematch of a fast thrown-together six-man compare from RAW, this deputy Kickoff Show compare (thanks to Randy Orton’s damage nixing Orton and Dean Ambrose vs. The Wyatt Family) saw a good guys entrance out on tip interjection to a superkick, hulk pitch and a Red Arrow from Neville onto King Barrett for a victory.
What we learned: Ziggler’s burgeoning argument with a just-debuted Tyler Breeze was given mouth service, so that’s substantially still a module they’re going to go with. That’s a large positive, generally where fans of Breeze are concerned.
The many critical thing about this compare was a STARDUST SECTION during ringside, featuring a Cosmic Wasteland of Stardust and The Ascension, that seemed to poke fun during a ongoing CESARO SECTION in arenas around a world. So it looks like a Cesaro vs. Stardust argument is about to get going, that can usually meant good things.
In other news, King Barrett took a pinfall. The strain stays a same.
WWE United States Championship Match: Alberto Del Rio def. John Cena (c)
In a large surprise, Alberto Del Rio done his lapse to WWE, introduced by a also-returning Zeb Colter.
The former universe champ (and stream reigning AAA Mega Champion) picked adult a large initial win behind when he answered Cena’s U.S. Open Challenge and got a pinfall after a large flog to a conduct … a same pierce that won him his initial WWE universe title.
What we learned: Del Rio, dismissed after an rumpus with a extremist WWE employee, is now behind and being managed by Colter, a former extremist patriot, since wrestling is awesome.
Cena is holding a integrate months off and if anyone was going to collect adult a warn win over him for a title, Del Rio is flattering many a ideal choice.
Hell in a Cell Match: Roman Reigns def. Bray Wyatt
In a initial of dual Hell in a Cell matches on a card, Reigns and Wyatt put an finish to their five-month-long feud. The Wyatt Family was not benefaction during a match, so it finished adult being a dual group carrying a extensive compare and creation a many of a PG-era Hell in a Cell stipulation, regulating tables, chairs and kendo sticks. Reigns finally put Wyatt divided with a stalk to get a pin.
What we learned: These dual guys have good chemistry together and continue to make a destiny of WWE demeanour bright. Reigns will expected rigging adult to start his run toward a categorical eventuality of subsequent year’s WrestleMania, while Wyatt will be forked during someone else with his revamped Wyatt Family during full strength.
WWE Tag Team Championship Match: The New Day (c) def. The Dudley Boyz
The New Days were though Xavier Woods on Sunday night. (Storyline-wise, he was harmed by a Dudleyz putting him by a table. In genuine life he was removing married.)
Even though their favorite tromboner, they still managed to be usually disreputable adequate to collect adult a win, conflict Bubba Ray with a trombone and afterwards with Kofi’s Trouble in Paradise.
What we learned: Sadly, we were deprived of Kofi Kingston’s guarantee to play D-Von’s conduct like a bongo drum if they won, though this argument is distant from over. The Dudley Boyz are still seeking their record 10th WWE tab pretension and they could really good win a belts during Survivor Series subsequent month … or in a tables compare during TLC in December.
WWE Divas Championship Match: Charlotte (c) def. Nikki Bella
In her initial pretension defense, Charlotte successfully fended off a former champ, removing a tapout with a Figure Eight. All other Divas were criminialized from ringside during a match, permitting a concentration to be on a compare between a dual women.
What we learned: The Divas continue to pierce a products in a ring, that will always assistance make adult for infrequently muted storylines. This was a large win for Charlotte and now a Divas can pierce on to a subsequent theatre in a storyline, with someone else severe for a title. Maybe Sasha Banks?
After a match, Becky Lynch and Paige ran out to assistance Charlotte celebrate, with a announcers suggesting that Team PCB is behind together. So once again, things are uncanny with Paige. Looking brazen to several weeks of that storyline personification out … or not.

WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match: Seth Rollins (c) def. Demon Kane
In a bit of a foregone conclusion, Rollins defended his pretension by pinfall after conflict Kane with a Pedigree.
What we learned: Well, Corporate Kane has mislaid his pursuit as Director of Operations as a outcome of this match. Ostensibly, this means Rollins’ ego will go violent and we’ll substantially see a lot some-more of Demon Kane as an active wrestler.
Rollins, like Reigns, will start retooling for a Road to WrestleMania, that starts in usually dual months. Hmmm, interesting: Rollins and Reigns in identical situations …
WWE Intercontinental Championship Match: Kevin Owens (c) def. Ryback
Owens once again used a manners to his advantage, adhering himself between a ropes and kicking Ryback while a arbitrate forced a break, afterwards conflict a pop-up powerbomb to get a pin.
What we learned: With a span of wilful victories over Ryback, both a champ and a challenger should pierce on to new feuds now. But will they? Tune into RAW to find out!
Hell in a Cell Match: Brock Lesnar def. Undertaker
In a final compare of their modern-era trilogy, Undertaker and Lesnar let it all hang out. They both bled, that is a critical curiosity for modern-day WWE. They strike any other with all and had a compare we hoped they would have.
In a end, Lesnar survived all a Undertaker dished out. He also got punish by conflict UNDERTAKER in a downstairs demons and conflict him with a third F5 to get a pin in a rubber match.
After a match, Bray Wyatt and a whole Wyatt Family came out to conflict a Undertaker. They kick him down and afterwards carried him divided to finish a PPV.
What we learned: Brock Lesnar continues to make all incredible. He also stays a one and usually dude who can drain in WWE. And drain buckets. And make any of his matches feel important. As frustrating as pro wrestling can be during times, appreciate integrity we have Brock Lesnar. If we missed this match, make certain to watch it. If we saw it, watch it again.
Brock Lesnar can now do fundamentally anything, including plea for a universe pretension that he never mislaid in a initial place. As for Undertaker, he’s now strictly concerned in a argument with a Wyatts. This would seem to set adult a four-on-four compare during a Survivor Series … that usually so happens to be a 25th anniversary of Undertaker’s debut.
