WWE, for all its production and design glory, sometimes gets it wrong. Or maybe "wrong" isn't the right term but rather, sometimes things just don't make sense. This is one of those times.
When the posters are made for upcoming pay-per-view (PPV) events, there is often little to no thought paid to current storylines. There's an entirely different conversation to be had about the value of changing that fact, and actually using the poster to properly promote the product, but WWE has resisted. Posters are made well in advance and for that reason, they often seem out of place.
Such is the case with the poster for the upcoming Hell in a Cell PPV scheduled for Sun., Oct. 27, 2013, at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, Florida.
Have a look at it, via inDemand:
Yeah, that's R-Truth, whose only time spent on TV recently was getting squashed by Bray Wyatt and Family, standing there with his hands clasped while wearing a suit. I'm not sure how this is supposed to sell the event, which is what these posters are specifically for, other than stating the name and date of the show.
