WWE has published an explanation for the way Hell in a Cell ended last night, most likely as a way of trying to appease furious fans who quite audibly hated the way things finished between Seth Rollins and Bray Wyatt.
In the end, the barbaric bout that concluded WWE Hell in a Cell might have been about something more than the Universal Championship: For all the nightmarish tenacity with which “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt has pursued Seth Rollins over the last few months, the otherworldly Superstar was kept from the title due to a match-stoppage ruling that led to Rollins retaining the title — a decision that proved to be instantly controversial at the end of the pair’s grisly Hell in a Cell Match. But that did very little to stop Wyatt from continuing his assault against the Universal Champion, whom he left writhing on the arena floor as Hell in a Cell finally faded to black.
With the ring bathed in red light, it quickly became very clear that Rollins was going to have to go to a depraved place to thwart Wyatt, who absorbed every single superkick, Stomp and swing with a steel chair, only to kick out at one when Rollins made his pinfall attempts. (That’s not even counting Wyatt’s relentless onslaught, which included several Sister Abigails, a sickening neck wrench and a giant mallet to The Beastslayer’s gut.) Even after Rollins hit Wyatt with superkicks and Stomps beyond counting, it didn’t seem to be enough. A shocking swing of the chair to the fallen Wyatt seemed like it would do the trick. But to be safe, Rollins balanced that chair on top of the challenger and spiked it with a ladder. And then, to be even safer, Rollins stacked both on top of each other and retrieved a sledgehammer from beneath the ring.
Yeah, I still don’t understand.
