Hell In A Cell - Post Reaction 2020

10/26/2020

WWE Hell In The Cell was established in 2009 replacing No Mercy PPV. In 2012, the event was moved at the end of the month closer to Halloween. The purpose for this event is to establish a Hell In the Cell Match in which competitors fight inside a 20-foot-high roofed cell structure surrounding the ring. Superstars that enter the cell remain locked up inside until the match is over. However, one can argue that the greatest Hell in a cell match of all time was not in the name PPV but in WWE Vengeance in 2005 with Batista going to war with Triple H. Or, The Undertaker vs Brock Lesnar at WWE No Mercy 2002. One match that I believe is the greatest is that of a six-pack challenge for the WWE Championship, WWE Armageddon in 2000, when Triple H, The Rock, Kurt Angle, Undertaker as the American Badass, Stone Cold Steve Austin, and Rikishi. Kurt Angle retained the WWE Championship.

In the women's division, it was one year ago that Becky Lynch retained her championship title and defeated Sasha Banks by submission.

Tonight, we have three championship hell in the cell matches:

Universal Championship Roman Reigns vs Jey Uso in a I Quit Match

WWE Championship Drew McIntyre vs Randy Orton

And Smackdown Women's Championship Bayley vs Sasha Banks.

Other matches on the cards are

Jeff Hardy vs Elias in a singles match

And the Money In the Bank contract match Otis and The Miz.

Bayley vs Sasha Banks

The anticipation for this rival came real when Bayley turned her back on Sasha Banks. Bayley's excuse was to beat her from doing it to her. However, Banks would had never done so because they were best friends. On Smackdown, Banks made Bayley sign the contract but will that benefit her tonight?

Jeff Hardy vs Elias

Elias made his return on Raw from his injuries. The storyline returned with him as he is seeking revenge from being hit by a car. Elias hit Hardy with a guitar. Little does he know, Hardy was framed and the issue was solved with Sheamus. Who did hit Elias is a mystery, and who set Hardy up is another mystery that is probably the same person.

The Miz vs Otis and his contract

The Miz has targeted Otis for a long time. He and Morrison had made fun of Otis, Tucker, and somehow responsible for Mandy Rose moving to Raw. While it may had seem there may be a split between Miz and Morrison, not so much now as they are both supporting each other to take the contract away from Otis. After the court decision by JBL, it was decided to make this match.
