WWE returned to one of its tried and true pay-per-view venues on Sunday with Hell in a Cell coming live from Allstate Arena in the Chicago suburb of Rosemont, IL.
The show lasted no longer than a standard episode of Monday Night Raw with just seven matches on the card. We got a banger to open the show and plenty of good midcard matches to carry us through the night. And then the main event was a sight to behold as Cody Rhodes performed in a Hell in a Cell match with a completely torn pectoral muscle.
Here are the matches and results for Hell in a Cell:
Cody Rhodes defeats Seth Rollins via pinfall (Hell in a Cell match)
Brother, Cody Rhodes is a maniac. With his pectoral muscle completely shredded and grotesquely bruised, the “American Nightmare” gutted through an entire Hell in a Cell match to put down Seth Rollins for a third time in three months.
The story of this match was clearly Rhodes overcoming this brutal injury to take down the “Architect”. It was a part Dusty Rhodes, part Triple H tribute match as the two guys battered each other for over 20 minutes. The match ended when Rhodes hit Rollins with back-to-back Cross Rhodes and a sledgehammer for the win.
We have an impromptu Texas Bullrope match inside of Hell in a Cell. Cody is really channeling Dusty here.
AGAIN, THIS MAN’S PECTORAL MUSCLE IS LITERALLY SHREDDED.
Uhhhh, how is this man wrestling.
Rollins already playing mind games with the Dusty Rhodes polka dots.
United States Championship - Theory (c) defeats Mustafa Ali via pinfall
Theory hit the A-Town Down and notched his first ppv title defense. The hometown curse claims another victim. Sorry Ali.
Madcap Moss defeats Happy Corbin via pinfall (No Holds Barred match)
Moss gets a huge ppv victory in what turned out to be a very violent match. With a steel chair wrapped around Corbin’s next, the upstart used one of the steel steps to Pillmanize him for the win.
The Judgement Day defeat AJ Styles, Finn Balor, and Liv Morgan via pinfall
As expected, this was a fun six-person tag where all parties got to shit. The match ended when Finn Balor missed the Coup De Grace and Edge put him down with the spear.
Kevin Owens defeats Ezekiel via pinfall
With three stunners, KO put down Ezekiel for the win. Now let’s get Owens in a title program or something.
Bobby Lashley defeats Omos and MVP via submission.
Lashley emerged victorious after putting MVP in the Hurt Lock to win. This was an impressive showing considering that Omos put Lashley through a barricade early in the match.
After the match, Lashley grabbed a replica WWE championship belt from a fan ringside and raised it. Could we be getting Lashley-Reigns in the near future?
As for MVP, at least he got off a diss track before the match!
Raw Women’s Championship - Bianca Belair (c) defeats Asuka and Becky Lynch via pinfall
The opener of Hell in a Cell was a banger as the “EST” successfully retained the Raw Women’s title against Becky Lynch and Asuka.
The match ended when Lynch hit the Manhandle Slam on Asuka and an opportunistic Belair threw “Big Time Becks” out of the ring and got the pin to retain. The Belair-Lynch program is far from over folks.
