As expected, the pay-per-view (PPV) portion of tonight’s (Sun., Oct. 30, 2016) WWE Hell in a Cell event from the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts, opened with a Hell in a Cell match, this one the United States championship match.
Rusev was attempting to win his title back from Roman Reigns.
He could not.
They eased into the brutality, which was mostly physical stuff like using the stairs, or repeated shots with a kendo stick, or this:
Rusev took control of the match with superkicks, tossing Reigns into steps set up in the corner, and a straight up beating with a steel chain. Said steps and steel chain were then used to assist Rusev in applying the Accolade.
But it didn’t matter. Reigns fought out, lifted him up, and dropped him down on those same steps.
The two sold briefly but when they got back up, Reigns hit a spear for the clean pinfall victory.
It was a bit slow, a bit brutal, and provided the expected finish. What’s more, it shouldn’t be too hard to follow.
