WWE Hell In A Cell 2020 is in the books and the Pay Per View gave us some terrific matches, high drama, and an old school betrayal. All of this while allowing all of us to get to bed at a decent hour ahead of the Monday morning grind.
Roman Reigns and Jey Uso gave us another high powered match up that revolved around their family drama. Everyone knows Roman is tougher, but this was about hearing his cousin Jey say it. Roman got his wish by using Jey’s brother, Jimmy, and compelling the words to come out of his opponent by hurting those he cares about. In the end Reigns got his coronation by the family elders. Great drama.
Then there was the best WWE rivalry of 2020. Sasha Banks and Bayley. After a spectacular match, Banks finally beat her former best friend and regular nemesis to end Bayley’s reign after over a year. The most exciting stuff may still be yet to come. Who will line up against Banks next? What will Bayley do?
Finally, in a heel turn straight out of the 80s, Tucker turned on Otis and cost him his Money In The Bank Briefcase to the Miz. Heavy Machinery destroyed and there is a lot of potential here. Miz will be a terrific briefcase holder and Otis will get the chance to get the crowd behind him once more as a heartbroken hero. The reaction on social media was great.
Honorable mention: It seems silly to announce a Universal Championship title change as an afterthought but Randy Orton did shock a lot of people beating Drew McIntyre tonight. The dominoes are set to see what he does next.
Good stuff by WWE tonight. See you back here tomorrow on RAW.
