12 months in the past, Hell In A Cell 2021 was set to mark the top of one of many weirdest eras in WWE historical past.
The ThunderDome screens had been about to be completely packed away because the world started a cautious return to regular after a pandemic-addled 2020. The present had shifted from October to Might as a way to make approach for the corporate’s return to the street, and WWE toasted this by reserving Cell matches out the *ss – SmackDown and Uncooked both facet of the titular premium reside occasion featured the once-precious gimmick match, together with a Roman Reigns/Rey Mysterio Common Title match lifted from the Sunday present.
This robbed the occasion of ‘The Tribal Chief’ in a lot the identical approach his new contract has executed this for this yr, however WWE have a minimum of thought forward in reserving a minimum of one match that would and may headline the occasion. And will that itself be foreshadowing the following step for the ‘Head Of The Desk’ forward of a excessive stress summer time for the corporate after Cash In The Financial institution?
Both approach, WWE – to their shocking credit score, really constructed a trilogy efficiently.
It being WWE, they’ve sh*t out a complete duffer of a one too…
WWE have managed to make this battle of whole beasts boring.
A WrestleMania match between them achieved little for winner Bobby Lashley, aside from offering the narrative gadget that knowledgeable MVP’s heel activate the previous WWE Champion the following evening. A WrestleMania Backlash rematch was marginally higher, as was a giant bumping Uncooked cage match, however when the actual juice was in Porter taking the kicking reasonably than Omos, the purpose of yet one more bout disappeared additional into the space.
Maybe Cedric Alexander will cease celebrating getting the sh*t kicking out of him as if he was nonetheless Gary The GOAT Garbutt and assist ‘The All-Mighty’ reasonably than persevering with to assist a heel act basically disinterested in what he is received to supply?
There are two matches on this card which have carried over from WrestleMania within the fashionable custom of WWE’s lazy reserving. This isn’t the one which deserves or warrants its spot. The earlier each guys can transfer on, the higher.
Winner – Bobby Lashley
