Alberto Del Rio

- Did they blade or didn’t they blade? That was a topic for discussion backstage at WWE Hell in a Cell regarding the main event between The Undertaker and Brock Lesnar. The doctor taking a bump in the ring was a shoot. Both Undertaker and Lesnar planned a physical bout and Undertaker took all responsibility for anything the company wouldn’t have wanted them doing. They were given a tall task and it was widely believed they passed with flying colors.

- Alberto Del Rio’s return to WWE was finalized at the end of last week. The hold up on getting it done had completely to do with dates. As we reported here on Premium, Del Rio wanted a reduced schedule but WWE wanted him to work full time. WWE was offering “really good money,” so it may have been a situation where it was too good for Del Rio to pass up. I know some are upset Del Rio came right back in and went over Cena clean, Kendra took issue with it, but it has to do with Vince McMahon wanting a top Latin star. It’s a void they’ve struggled to fill and he was willing to offer big money to Del Rio to get it filled. The clean Cena win was just the icing on the cake.

- As CJ noted during the pay-per-view, Xavier Woods missed Hell in a Cell because he got married over the weekend. This was approved ahead of time and they filmed the stuff to include on the broadcast.

- Bray Wyatt and Roman Reigns received high marks backstage for their Hell in a Cell bout. Wyatt is clearly going back to his program with The Undertaker for something at Survivor Series. Reigns appears primed for a bigger role on WWE TV, especially with Cena out, but we’ll wait and see where they book him.

- Luke Harper is back with WWE and has no heat on him, despite rumors to the contrary. We reported last week he missed TV due to a personal issue and that’s all there was to it. So, don’t worry about the picture!
