WWE Hell In A Cell 2017 Results: Did Shane McMahon Win?

Share
Titus O'Neill vs Elias RAW

MATTHEW BYER: Hmmm.why do I get the sense that this is where Carmella is going to cash in her Money in the Bank briefcase to become the new Smackdown Women's Champion? Anyway, let's go through the card.

So, while there are a few more matches on the card, these four should be the most impressive. The New Day just won the titles back on the September 12th SmackDown episode. I would hope that Orton puts over Rusev as a threat because what Smackdown needs is more credibility and Orton already has his by reputation. They used the cage to great effect and used lots of weapons too.

HIAC is always a good time, while also filling us with anxiety than someone is going to do something insane, reckless and career threatening. The Usos beat the New Day to regain the Smackdown titles in the first ever tag match inside the structure. Did it make us want to see Nakamura knee him into oblivion? The downfall of Rusev continues. The Lone Wolf took advantage of some bedlam in the ring at the end of the match, as Tye Dillinger was pinned thanks to a Phenomenal Forearm finding its mark and Styles being evicted from the ring. This was one of the high points of the match as it was incredibly creative and a great depiction of this feud. Daniel Bryan added Dillinger to the match during the pre-show, and that ultimately cost Styles his title.

New Day (Champions) vs.

Charlotte Flair vs. Natalya was decent especially the athleticism of Charlotte. As did Big E getting fired up and positively wrecking the Usos afterwards, and Woods' desperation effort at the end of the match. But before the challenger could get the champ back into the ring for a pinfall, Natalya grabbed a steel chair and got herself disqualified.

On a night that mostly followed storylines to a tee, WWE threw a curveball the Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw would be proud of to conclude its Hell in a Cell main event. Jinder tried to leave, but Nakamura dragged him back in. The match was violent, yet I enjoyed the way New Day stayed true to their characters by working in trombones, cymbals, and the rainbow colored kendo stick.

WWE is going all-in by making Mahal its next biggest star. Kingston came first after wrestling in WWE's first developmental territories in Deep South Wrestling (DSW), Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW), and Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW). This gave Mahal the opportunity to strike Nakamura with a brutal Khallas which led to his victory. Bobby Roode is set to make his WWE pay-per-view debut in a match opposite Dolph Ziggler, while Rusev and Randy Orton will have a rubber match. This could have been a good match, but the two of them didn't do much. Other times, we get a regular match with a cage backdrop. This is just the latest and should provide eventful fallout on SmackDown Live. For those of you that missed it, Shane McMahon jumped off the top of the cell and crashed through a table when Sami Zayn pulled Kevin Owens out of harm's way. The build for this one centered around Mahal being a very large piece of shit, and not in a good way, if that makes sense.

The Canadian powerhouse then blamed McMahon for the loss and made things personal when he told him his wife and kids would be better off if he had never survived from the helicopter crash that could have taken his life in July. He once against scaled the cell, and just like at Wrestlemania 32, he would attempt an elbow drop.

The biggest twist was the ending. Making the match Falls Count Anywhere just feeds the expectations that Shane McMahon is going to try something insane again, as he always does, but I seriously think Sami Zayn will play a role in this match's finish.

Zayn, who may revive his career as a heel, looked as shocked and disgusted with himself as the Detroit fans as he backed away from a stunned Owens, with whom he has had his own longstanding feud.
