Roman Reigns b. Rusev for the United States Championship inside Hell in a Cell

Finish: Roman hit a spear on Rusev who was standing on the steel stairs in the ring.

Pass or Fail: Fail

Wrap-up: I really want to get on board with Roman Reigns but WWE makes it so difficult. This match, overall, was fine but not great. They kept things milder which disappointed me a bit. The worst came at the end, though. Rusev hit several superkicks, an Accolade, hit Roman with steel stairs, with a steel chain, he locked in an Accolade WITH a steel chain and after all of that Roman won the match with a single spear. No weapon assist, nothing fancy, just a single spear. There needs to be more there or at least keep it balanced. Rusev threw everything and the kitchen sink at Roman and Roman threw out his average moves. This is why fans have trouble getting behind Roman.

Bayley b. Dana Brooke

Finish: Bayley hit the Bayley to Belly for the win.

Pass or Fail: Pass

Wrap-up: This match was nothing special but it did the job. Bayley won and built up some momentum which she needed on the main roster. Hopefully, this was a one and done and we don't keep this rivalry going through to Survivor Series. Bayley needs bigger and better things and Dana needs someone more on her level. I get the feeling they are just keeping Bayley busy until something bigger is ready for her.

Gallows and Anderson b. Enzo and Cass

Finish: The Club hit the Magic Killer on Enzo for the win

Pass or Fail: Pass

Wrap-up: This match was nothing special but it wasn't bad either. Both teams could have used a win so I am fine with The Club picking up the W here. If I'm being honest, The Club needed the win more. Enzo and Cass are over as anything so as long as they don't go on a Bray Wyatt-esque losing streak they'll be fine. They have been fairly boring since arriving in WWE and never really found their footing. Hopefully, WWE can let them get into a groove and work their way back up to glory. They could also use a leader, with AJ on Smackdown and Finn injured it'd be interesting to see them get a new leader.

Kevin Owens b. Seth Rollins for the Universal Championship inside Hell in a Cell

Finish: Kevin Owens power bombed Seth through two set up chairs.

Pass or Fail: Pass

Wrap-up: This match passes with flying colors. Owens and Rollins knew exactly how to utilize the cage without going overboard or neglecting it. Their match seemed worthy of Hell in a Cell and delivered without question. Chris Jericho interfered but it didn't take away from the match, it enhanced it. Usually, I'm not a fan of interference in a cage match of any kind because the point of the cage is to keep people out. However, Jericho was used fairly sparingly even inside the Hell in a Cell. This match did everything in perfect moderation and came across perfectly. Will WWE keep Rollins vs. Owens going? They certainly can after the way things went. They can also have Triple H come out tomorrow and attack Rollins. There are tons of options where to go from here and that is a good thing!

Brian Kendrick b. TJ Perkins for the Cruiserweight Championship

Finish: Kendrick faked an injury and then hit a headbutt into the Captain's Hook for the win.

Pass or Fail: Pass

Wrap-up: This match could've been more but it wasn't bad either. I feel like Kendrick and Perkins have a lot more story to tell in the ring. I am very happy that Kendrick won the title, I think he absolutely should be the champion. He has the name value and the experience to lead the division. I don't think we've seen the last of Kendrick vs. Perkins but I think it'll be over soon and we'll see a new #1 contender in Cedric Alexander or Rich Swann. I'm hoping we see Neville join the cruiserweights soon so that we can get some more legitimacy to the division.

Cesaro and Sheamus b. New Day via DQ

Finish: Sheamus hit Big E with the trombone which caused Kofi to get involve and attack Sheamus, the ref called for the DQ right as Woods started tapping out to the Sharpshooter from Cesaro.

Pass or Fail: Pass

Wrap-up: It seems like they're just going to keep having New Day win via DQ or shenanigans until they beat the record for the longest reigning Tag Team Champions in history then they'll drop the titles. The match was good and Cesaro and Sheamus do make a decent team. The match was pretty good and I wouldn't mind seeing it again. No doubt I'll get that wish granted because we're obviously not done here. If I had to guess we will see WWE skip a tag team championship match for Survivor Series and then if they've beaten the record they'll drop the titles to Cesaro and Sheamus once those two get on the same page.

Charlotte b. Sasha Banks for the Women's Championship inside Hell in a Cell

Finish: Sasha tried to powerbomb Charlotte through a table but her back gave out. Charlotte grabbed Sasha and threw her into the table twice before hitting Natural Selection for the win.

Pass or Fail: Pass

Wrap-up: Wow what a match! History was absolutely made tonight! This Hell in a Cell match certainly held up against many others in history. The best part about this match was the story it told. The match starting with a beat down and a stretcher job was a really nice touch. It's a real shame that Sasha didn't win and I think it was the only blemish on a perfect, historical match. I'm not sure why they wouldn't put Sasha over in a situation like this. It was her hometown, the first ever Women's Hell in a Cell, the first ever Women's PPV main event. It would have created such a magical moment and it was passed over for a less exciting ending. Regardless, it was a fantastic match, a historical moment, and I loved every second of it.

Hell in a Cell

Pass and Fail: Pass

Wrap-up: This PPV was great. The Hell in a Cell matches definitely carried the event, but that's not a bad thing. That's what specialty events are for, to deliver in the specialty matches. The rest of the PPV was just icing on the cake. I'm glad to see that the Women's Hell in a Cell do as well as it did. The Women's Revolution is in full effect and they showed tonight why they deserve it.
