BaconStrips here. Let's go to Hell...


Preshow Highlights

  • As usual, our preshow consists of Renee Young, Corey Graves, Booker T, and Byron Saxton.
  • A fair warning: my stream is being very temperamental at the moment, so we're just gonna have to see how this bodes tonight.
  • Jojo interviews John Cena about the US Title Open Challenge. Cena says that the challenge is gonna kick the show off tonight. He quotes Gary Cole with the "if you ain't first, you're last" quip.
  • The panel discusses possible challengers for Cena's title. Graves suggests Baron Corbin, Saxton suggests Cesaro, and Booker discusses "someone different"...hint hint.
  • Before the show, Kevin Owens cuts a promo calling sports "stupid" and "for the simple-minded." However, even though Owens doesn't follow sports, he still knows that that Lakers suck. Owens points out the statue of Magic Johnson, calling him an illusion just like Ryback. Owens vows to defeat Ryback by using his mind, turning Hell in a Cell into the Kevin Owens Show.
  • Nikki Bella vs Charlotte now has a stipulation: no one can be at ringside.
  • "Don't touch me, I'm campaigning" - Corey Graves while campaigning for the Director of Operations opening.
  • Tom Phillips interviews The Dudley Boyz in the social media lounge. The Dudleys don't feel bad for putting Xavier Woods through a table, and that's really about it in terms of notable moments aside from them vowing to win the tag titles for the tenth time.


Cesaro, Neville, and Dolph Ziggler vs King Barrett, Sheamus, and Rusev (Team Eurotrash)

  • The Stardust Section is in full force as Stardust and The Ascension chill in the crowd.
  • Sheamus and Neville start with some quick back-and-forth that ends with Neville hitting an enziguiri and tagging Cesaro. Neville does a Red Arrow off of Cesaro's back, netting Cesaro a two count.
  • Neville is tagged again just in time to get whipped hard into the corner. Barrett gets tagged in and goes to work. Eurotrash exchanges tags as they work over Neville. Sheamus goes for a suplex, but Neville escapes and tags Ziggler in, who immediately goes to work on Sheamus. After a flurry of offense, Ziggler hits a Famouser for two.
  • As Barrett distracts the referee, Rusev hits Ziggler with DAT KICK, which nets Sheamus a two count after he drags himself into the cover before a break.
  • Back from break and Barrett has Ziggler in a chinlock. The chinlock is briefly broken, but Barrett keeps the pressure on with more chinlocks and the tried-and-true "huge corner punt to the stomach." Tags are exchanged as Eurotrash works on Ziggler more.
  • Rusev toys with Ziggler by having him go for a tag. Rusev manhandles him before delivering a big kick to the back for two. Sheamus is tagged in again and locks a chinlock in after a Crash Landing. Ziggler fights out and hits a DDT, leaving both men down.
  • As Ziggler fights to his corner, Rusev is tagged in and stops Ziggler, forcing him into the corner. Rusev goes for an avalanche, but Ziggler moves, causing Rusev to launch into the ring post.
  • Cesaro and Barrett are tagged in, and Cesaro has the hot tag, hitting uppercut after uppercut. A big boot grounds Barrett briefly. Cesaro whips Barrett, but Barrett reverses. Cesaro flips onto the apron, and the insanity starts. Cesaro does a senton onto Sheamus, runs over to uppercut Rusev, high-fives a bunch of fans, and uppercuts Sheamus (all within thirty seconds).
  • Cesaro reenters the ring and sets Neville up for a moonsault onto Sheamus and Rusev on the outside. Unbeknownst to Cesaro, Barrett has a Bullhammer ready. Cesaro dodges the Bullhammer, allowing Ziggler to superkick Barrett. Cesaro follows with a monster swing (over 20 rotations I think), and Neville hits the Red Arrow to win.

Dolph Ziggler, Cesaro, and Neville def Team Eurotrash

That was fun.

The New Day vs The Dudley Boyz (Tag Team Championship)

  • Before the match, Big E and Kofi Kingston come out sans Xavier Woods. Kofi thanks the WWE Universe for their support of Xavier Woods, who would have played a song of gratitude if he were here.

As Bubba yells for D-Von to get the tables, Kofi knocks D-Von and Bubba down. Kofi takes advantage of the moment and grabs the trombone. Instead of hitting Bubba with it, Kofi passes it to Bubba and falls down in an Eddie Guerrero-esque moment.
  • The ref puts the pieces together and teases disqualifying The Dudleys, but decides against it. Meanwhile, Bubba breaks the trombone in half to the chagrin of Kofi. They then hit an inverted 3D and set up for the real thing. As the ref's back is turned, Big E hits Bubba with part of the trombone. D-Von clotheslines Big E outside. During this, Bubba Ray gets up and eats Trouble in Paradise.
