Awesome video recap of Hell in a Cell
We go live to San Antonio, and The Authority is in the ring.
Stephanie welcomes us to Monday Night Raw and uses a really bad pun to describe Hell in a Cell
WWE Network shill #1
Triple H takes over and calls Randy Orton's match with John Cena "epic." He then calls Seth Rollins the "standard-bearer of WWE" while introducing him.
Seth Rollins and his goons (Joey Mercury and Jamie Noble) come out to the ring. Steph sends some heel heat his way, and the crowd immediately starts chanting "You sold out!"
Rollins thanks The Authority and says that "Dean Ambrose is out of my hair once and for all." Rollins says that he proved that intellect always prevails over unbridled mayhem. He goes on to say that John Cena (whose mention gets a mostly negative reaction) is next on his conquering path.
After some dueling chants, Rollins announces that he will be able to "see John Cena" just like the crowd will be able to see John Cena writhing on the ground.
As Rollins gets ready to exit, Randy Orton makes a beeline to the ring, and he is pissed. He immediately begins to tear into Seth Rollins regarding his words and actions lately.
After more fiery words, Orton snaps and goes after Seth Rollins in a blind rage. After the two men are separated, Trips yells at Orton to calm down. After telling the crowd to shut up, Trips tells Orton to take the night off. As Trips tries to calm Orton, Orton sidesteps Trips and RKOs Rollins to a huge pop.
Orton exits the ring while Triple H displays the facial expression of a disappointed father.
I may just have to rewatch this segment immediately
The Dust Bros vs Big Show and Mark Henry (WWE Tag Team Championship)
The World's Biggest Tag Team dominates for the first half of the match. However, dissension starts when Big Show tags himself into the match, pissing off Henry.
The match continues with the hosses maintaining the advantage. Eventually, Big Show KOs Stardust and throws Goldust out of the ring. After Show tosses Goldust out, Henry slowly enters the ring, walks up to Big Show, delivers the World's Strongest Slam, and walks away, allowing Stardust to get the cover.
The Dust Bros defeats Big Show and Mark Henry by pinfall
After the match, Henry delivers a few World's Strongest Slams to Big Show and walks out.
An exclusive interview with Roman Reigns is next
Mark Henry is walking backstage when Renee Young catches up with him. She starts to ask why he turned on Big Show. Henry interrupts and says that there was some jealousy between the two.
Roman Reigns appears on satellite. Michael Cole asks him how the recovery is going, and Reigns responds that he would love to be in San Antonio.
When asked about Ambrose vs Rollins, Reigns responds that it was everything he imagined it to be. He also threatens Seth Rollins before the interview ends.
AJ Lee vs Alicia Fox
Decent enough match, but Paige completely steals the segment with her commentary and banter. However, Paige suddenly snaps and yells at Alicia to "WIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNNNN!!!" This distracts Alicia enough to allow AJ to roll her up for the pin.
AJ Lee defeats Alicia Fox by pinfall
After the match, Paige tries to make things up with Alicia, but Paige kicks Alicia in the midsection. Paige then proceeds to beat the everloving shit out of Alicia.
Paige is just getting more entertaining by the day.
John Cena comes out to the ring for a promo.
He goes for a couple of cheap pops from the San Antonio crowd, leading to a "Go, Spurs, go" chant.
His promo mainly consists of how everything he does from now on will be a statement toward Brock Lesnar. Cena turns is attention toward Seth Rollins, promising a "first-class wake-up call" that the future isn't now for Rollins. Cena promises to go through the future that is Seth Rollins.
As Cena preaches, Stephanie McMahon comes out. She congratulates him on his win last night, and she can't wait for tonight's main event against Seth Rollins. She also can't wait for Survivor Series, where there will be a traditional 5-on-5 elimination match.
WWE Network shill #2
Stephanie has a proposition for Cena. She brings up the "Cena Sucks" chants to make a point that Cena needs to listen to what's best for business. Steph says that Cena needs to go down in a mess of blood, guts, and what not.
Steph offers Cena a spot with The Authority, a place that guarantees him respect. In this deal, Steph promises a guaranteed victory against Brock Lesnar. She also alludes a stipulation that the winner of tonight's main event will be the captain of Team Authority at Survivor Series.
Cena responds that all he wants to do is pander to the crowd. After some back-and-forth interaction, Cena vehemently turns down Steph's offer.
As Cena gets ready to leave, Triple H comes out to the ring. Trips starts to burn Cena and his usual schtick, telling him that he continually eeks by every night. Trips also says that Cena "can't fight the future." After burning Cena (and indirectly, Hulk Hogan), Trips tells Cena that The Authority will make an example of Cena.
Trips officially announces Team Authority vs Team Cena for Survivor Series. However, no matter who Cena can recruit, The Authority will always win.
The Miz and Damien Mizdow vs The Usos
Decent enough match that is won by The Usos after Twin Magic. However, the real highlight here, as always, is Damien Mizdow. The man can do no wrong.
The Usos defeats The Miz and Damien Mizdow by pinfall.
Backstage, John Cena is trying to recruit Dolph Ziggler to join his team for Survivor Series
Hulk Hogan is up next
Backstage, Dolph Ziggler is walking when Kane confronts him about his conversation with John Cena. As a result, he books himself in a match with Ziggler.
Hulk Hogan comes out to the ring. He talks about Cena beating Orton at Hell in a Cell as well as the Susan G Komen Foundation partnership. He recognizes all of the breast caner survivors in the building before leaving.
Bo Dallas is on his way to the ring to issue an open challenge.
Bo Dallas vs Ryback
FEED ME MORE!!!
Bo gets fed to a returning Ryback...simple as that.

Mark Henry is the guest on Miz TV for tomorrow's Main Event
Dean Ambrose vs Cesaro
Before the match starts, Ambrose is standing on the announce table with a mic. He says that he enjoyed every second of hell, but he found Bray Wyatt there as well. He doesn't care why Bray attacked him, but one thing is clear: You don't screw with Dean Ambrose.
The match doesn't really start due to Ambrose ravaging Cesaro with the mic.
The match doesn't start
Dean Ambrose is pissed, and wants to kick Bray Wyatt's ass.
Wyatt appears on the Trinitron. He says that he sees a reflection of himself every time he looks at Ambrose.
"I am you...I am going to dismantle you...Run, Dean, run" - Bray Wyatt
Nikki Bella (with Brie Bella as personal assistant) vs Naomi
Good enough match that is more intended to highlight the awkward "personal assistant" position that Brie is in. Nikki hits Naomi with the Rack Attack for the win.
Nikki Bella defeats Naomi by pinfall
Dolph Ziggler vs Kane
Slow, plodding affair that is characteristic of every Kane match. Ziggler gets the win with a roll-up out of nowhere.
Dolph Ziggler defeats Kane by pinfall
After he match, Seth Rollins blindsides Ziggler. Ziggler is rolled into the ring and ganged upon by Kane and Rollins. Kane is about to chokeslam Ziggler until Cena makes the save.
John Cena vs Seth Rollins
Absolutely excellent match....until Kane ultimately interferes to ruin the match
John Cena wins by DQ
After the match, all hell breaks loose when the entire Raw locker room comes out to brawl. The Authority comes out to enjoy the fun. In the end, John Cena stands tall in the ring.
