Hell in a Cell always seemed like a pit stop for WWE on the way to Saudi Arabia, but it vastly outperformed expectations.
That was until the highly anticipated main event between Seth Rollins and Bray Wyatt, The Fiend.
The Fiend has been unstoppable since Wyatt debuted him in the run-up to SummerSlam, but this was only his second match since that return and it was for the Universal title.
Wyatt dominated the early portion of the match and it seemed that the crowd in Sacramento were firmly behind him winning the top belt.
After no-selling all of Rollins’ best moves many, many times, the Beast Slayer was forced to think outside the box and started using all kinds of tools to try and keep the Fiend down.
After taking it too far in the eyes of the referee, the match was stopped. Presumably for a disqualification, but that’s not clear right now.
You won’t be suprised to learn that fans are utterly furious with the outcome.
A few things seemed to anger WWE’s fanbase. The red light during the matchup was a common complaint, but the actual action in the matched appeared pretty lackluster
If WWE didn’t want to have a popular character like Wyatt win the title, they shouldn’t have put him in a position where he has to lose.
Also, a Hell in a Cell match is meant to be as barbaric as it can get, so how can it be stopped?! A lot doesn’t make sense, and that led to several fans chanting for AEW and booing long after the show finished.
