O Rock of Ages, do not crumble, love is breathing still. O Lady Moon, shine down a little people magic if you will, while my good lady wife continues to heal and I liveblog this here pro wrestling show for these folks.

The pre-show panel tonight consists of Charly Caruso, Booker T, Jerry “the King” Lawler, Jeff Jarrett, and Peter Rosenberg, and boy howdy do they get to pre-showin’.

Drew Gulak vs. R-Truth (c) (WWE 24/7 Championship)

Truth with a little dancing at the bell, Gulak waves to Little Jimmy and waves him over to give him a double high five. He goes low, too, and then does a secret handshake with the invisible child before punting him to Truth’s dismay! Double leg into countered punches, the champion vicious, whip across, big hip toss!

Smashing Drew’s face into the turnbuckles, Gulak turns him around, hamstring kicks into a stepover toehold! Truth eventually upkicks his way out of the hold, side headlock from Drew, shot off, roll under, sunset flip for two! Drop toehold, into a calf slicer, sort of a modified reverse bow-and-arrow but Truth gets the ropes and forces the break!

Hanging over-the-back chinlock, Truth breaks away, off the ropes, shoulder block, shoulder block, fall-forward Blue Thunder Driver, “You can’t see me!”, off the ropes, Five Knuckle Shuffle! Gulak stumbles into the ropes, fireman’s carry, he slips out but Truth hits the corkscrew forearm... NOPE! Sidestep the scissor kick, whip across, corner lariat connects!

Putting boots to the champ until referee Eddie Orengo warns him off, up top, Drew climbing to join him, jockeying for position, Truth gets an electric chair, Gulak slips out, reversed...

R-Truth wins by pinfall with a jackknife pin to retain the WWE 24/7 Championship.

Post-match, Lucha House Party and Akira Tozawa appear to chase R-Truth off and Gulak gets on the mic to tell Truth that his “childhood hero” John Cena sucks.

The pre-show panel finish their pre-show-ery.

The main show kicks off with a ThunderDome video package that very quickly gets distorted and warped and becomes a hype reel for Hell in a Cell

Jey Uso vs. Roman Reigns (c) (WWE Universal Championship Hell in a Cell “I Quit” Match)

Circling, jawing, side headlock, shot off and Reigns knocks him down with a shoulder block early! Roman taking it easy, giving his cousin what for, corner lariats, not even breaking a sweat. Jey gets an enzuigiri in, a solebutt, big slicing right sends Reigns to the floor! Off the ropes... A SUICIDE DIVE PUTS THE BIG DOG INTO THE HARD STEEL WALL OF THE CELL!

Continuing to put Reigns into the unforgiving steel, bringing him back inside, lining him up for the Ode to Rikishi but Roman counters with the spear! Slow to capitalize, Reigns goes to the floor for plunder but Uso cuts him off with a dropkick! Off the ropes... ROMAN CUTS HIM OFF WITH A RIGHT HAND!

Back inside, duck a lariat, off the ropes, another spear! The Big Dog telling him to just quit but Jey isn’t giving in yet! He tells him he doesn’t want to have to do this, to be the bad guy, but Uso won’t give. Reigns threatens to end him, he runs the ropes but Jey cuts the spear off with a front kick!

A superkick puts Roman on the mat, up top, diving splash! Up top, another splash! Reigns says the head of the table never quits! Uso goes and gets a leather strap! HE WHIPS THE BIG DOG WITH THE STRAP! BUT ROMAN FIRES UP AND HITS ANOTHER SPEAR! Roman grabs the strap and whips Jey with it! He ties it around Uso’s wrist and continues the punishment! BUT STILL JEY WILL NOT QUIT!

Tug of war, Uso lets go and uses his momentum to hit a forearm! Trading shots, a superkick, duck the Superman Punch and he trips Roman up with the strap! HE TIES IT AROUND REIGNS’ NECK TO CHOKE HIM OUT WITH IT IN AN ASSISTED CUTTHROAT CHOKE! Roman’s out and referee Ryan Tran almost calls it but he snaps to attention!

He fades again, Tran checks on him and he rolls over gasping, the match continues! Uso gets a chair and waits from Roman to rise... REIGNS WAKES UP FIRST AND HITS HIM WITH THE SUPERMAN PUNCH! THE BIG DOG HAS THE GUILLOTINE CHOKE LOCKED ON IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! Jey flagging, going limp, Roman breaks the hold and he’s out on the mat but he’s not quitting!

Reigns gets down next to him and tells him if he doesn’t quit now, he’s gonna take this to the next level and make him regret it. He doesn’t quit, so Roman drags him out on the apron such that his head is hanging off the end of the mat... DRIVE-BY! Hammering him with right hands, calling him selfish, the Big Dog backs off for a moment and grabs the steel steps!

He slides them on the apron... AND SANDWICHES JEY BETWEEN THE STEEL STEPS AND THE RINGPOST! DRIVE-BY INTO THE STEEL STEPS! Referee Ryan Tran wants to call it now because Uso’s unconscious but Roman chases him down and throws him out of the ring! Referee Jason Ayers slides in to replace him and Reigns asks Jey what he’s supposed to do now that he looks bad, what is he supposed to tell his children?

Road agents Pat Buck and five-time NWA World Heavyweight Champion Adam Pearce come in the ring to tell Roman to stop this and he leaves the ring as former ROH World Champion Jamie Noble comes in to check on him as well. Reigns shuts the door behind them and throws the steps in the ring! Roman puts the steps ringside down on Jey and says he understands testing him once but he’s still coming?

He tells Uso all he had to do was acknowledge him but now he’s making him do this? There’s no going back tonight, he’s gotta end it. He lifts the steps up... AND JIMMY USO SLIDES IN THE RING TO SHELTER HIS BROTHER! He berates Roman and tells him whatever he’s going through they can fix this, he doesn’t have to do this.

He starts using shoot names, so you know it’s serious. Roman sits down and starts crying, like full-on sobbing, and he apologizes, admitting he doesn’t know what he’s doing. Jimmy tells him it’s alright, they’re family, just no more of this, and he offers a hand. Reigns takes the hand and they go forehead to forehead ... AND ROMAN GRABS THE GUILLOTINE CHOKE, THE ABSOLUTE BASTARD!


Roman Reigns wins, retaining the WWE Universal Championship and forcing the Usos to recognize him as tribal chief under threat of estrangement.

As Roman makes his exit, the Wild Samoans, Afa and Sika, his dad and uncle, greet him on the stage and put a lei around his neck, embracing him as head of the family.

Elias makes his entrance and cuts a promo full of his usual Walk With Elias schtick before singing a song about how he’s gonna beat Jeff Hardy tonight.

Elias vs. Jeff Hardy

Elias hot out the gates but Hardy hits the atomic drop, snapmare, two count and a Polish Hammer. Hammerlock applied, punching away but Elias is able to outmaneuver him and throw him through the ropes to break the hold! Back inside, Hardy recovers but the Drifter rolls back to the floor! He sidesteps a dive off the steps, referee Shaun Bennett counting... JEFF BEATS THE COUNT AT NINE!

Putting Jeff into the corner, beating him up, whip across, shoulder block! Hardy throwing rights, backing him into the corner, whip reversed, Manhattan Drop to the double leg drop to the basement dropkick and the big splash... NOPE! Twist of Fate denied, Elias gets the electric chair and spins it out into a sitout powerbomb... STILL NO!

Boots up in the corner... WHISPER IN THE WIND! Action to the floor... HARDY WITH THE EL KABONG! Bennett calls it...

Elias wins by disqualification.

Otis gets a promo where he gets tough to fight Miz.

Otis Dozovic (c) vs. the Miz (Money in the Bank Briefcase)

Collar and elbow, Otis rams the Miz into the corner and clubs him with huge inside forearms! A biel sends the A-Lister across the ring, shoulder thrust in the corner follows it up, scoop and a slam! Miz puts him to the floor, off the ropes, nobody home on the dropkick and Dozer runs hi over with a lariat on the floor!

Smashing the A-Lister’s face into the announce table a few times, John Morrison on the apron to run interference and Miz hits the basement DDT... NOPE! Awesome Clothesline, off the top with a double axehandle, again just a two count! Miz with a sleeper hold, Otis starts to fade but pumps his fist and gets out of it!

Big boot from the A-Lister, chest kicks follow but Dozer fires up and shrugs ‘em off! Starting to shake, running Miz over with shoulder blocks, a lariat, tearing his shirt off! Off the ropes, flapjack, going for the Caterpillar but Morrison pulls Miz out! Otis runs Johnny Raw off and throws the A-Lister back inside!

Another big boot staggers the big man, elbow cuts Miz off on the charge! Morrison is gonna clock Dozer with the briefcase but referee Jessika Carr sees him and kicks him out! Otis from behind, schoolboy for two, discus lariat... NOT ENOUGH! Miz hanging onto the apron, Otis gets away... TUCKER CLOCKS HIS BUDDY WITH THE BRIEFCASE!

Miz with the cover...

The Miz wins by pinfall with a lateral press to win the Money in the Bank briefcase.

We see Miz and John Morrison walking backstage and celebrating when they run into an interview.

They don’t regret breaking Tucker and Otis’ friendship and Miz tells the world champs that they’re on notice and he’s gonna cash in successfully just like he did before.

Tucker stalks by and says he was supposed to be the workhorse and carry the load, he did everything for Otis and for Heavy Machinery, and what’s he got? He was always an afterthought, but Otis can’t function without him. He gave him the confidence to ask Mandy Rose out, and Otis can’t tie his own shoes without him.

Otis comes down like a freight train and takes Miz and Morrison out before chasing after Tucky!

Bayley (c) vs. Sasha Banks (WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship Hell in a Cell Match)

Well crap, I managed to lose the liveblog for this one in a copy buffer error. It’s been a long weekend for me, folks, and I apologize. Suffice it to say this was a long, violent match built around some really clever weapon spots (everything from kendo sticks to tables to ladders to chairs to fire extinguishers) and Sasha’s neck injury.

Sasha Banks wins by submission with a chair-assisted Bank Statement crossface to win the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship.

The Hurt Business are interviewed backstage.

Montel Vontavious Porter explains how the Hurt Business works, and says Bobby Lashley is the predator-king of this group of lions, and Bobby Lashley leads them into battle as equals. Shelton Benjamin picks SLAPJACK to fight Bobby Lashley, and MVP addresses Mustafa Ali directly, saying they’re driven not just by profit, but by their passion for inflicting pain on people like him.

So he sees the challenge, and he raises— he wants it be one-on-one, no corner men, no backups, and Lashley is prepared to make it a title match. Bob says he’s gonna go to the ring and wait for a fight.

Bobby Lashley (c) vs. SLAPJACK (WWE United States Championship)

Lashley backing SLAPJACK into the corner and raining forearms down on him, whip across, SLAPJACK turns it around and lights him up with kicks and forearms! Cannonball senton, no cover, jockeying for position over a side headlock and SLAPJACK escapes a back suplex before hitting a tornado DDT! Bob with a big chokeslam, Hurt Lock applied...

Bobby Lashley wins by submission to retain the WWE United States Championship.

Post-match, Mustafa Ali directs Mace Macem and T-Bar to attack Lashley! They go for a double chokeslam but Bob fights out and the Hurt Business arrives to save the day!

Drew McIntyre (c) vs. Randy Orton (WWE Championship Hell in a Cell Match)

Orton is disguised as a cameraman and tries to get the jump on McIntyre but he sees him coming and starts beating him down outside the cell! Randy turns it around and clears the announce desk, jockeying for position but McIntyre takes him in the ring and the door is locked. We have a bell!

Trading shots in the middle of the ring, boots in the corner, early RKO blocked and Drew clotheslines him to the floor! Grinding Randy’s face into the cage wall, scooping him up and ramming him into the steel and then into the post! Steel chair in hand, McIntyre stalks after him and rams him in the midsection with it before walloping him across the back!

He clobbers Randy with the steel steps, throwing them at him but Orton rolled away and dodged! Waiting for Randy to get up... CLAYMORE COUNTERED WITH A CHAIRSHOT TO THE KNEE! Orton grinds the edge of the chair into Drew’s injured jaw! Action to the floor, Randy gets his cameraman pants and pulls them over before forcing Drew down on the steps and stomping the side of his head!

Choking McIntyre with the pants, trading forearms, whipping him into the steel steps. Drew blocks an attempt to put him face first into the steel, headbutt, smashing Orton’s face into the steps and then ramming his back into the cage wall! The Viper with a thumb to the eye, whip into the steps! Back inside, McIntyre fighting back into it with punches, but Orton busts out the back-to-back backbreaker!

Trading shots, Randy whips him into the corner but Drew explodes with a series of lariats! Whip across, overhead belly-to-belly suplex! Another one, kick to the midsection, underhookcs, Future Shock denied but McIntyre gets a leaping neckbreaker! Kip-up, fired up, lying in wait, fireman’s carry but Randy slips away and goes out of the ring.

Drew follows after and gets put into the cage wall for his trouble! McIntyre with a belly-to-belly through a table! Whispering in Orton’s ear, back inside, a low blow sets up the hanging DDT! The Viper goes under the ring and gets a set of bolt cutters to snip the lock on the door! He walks out and Drew clobbers him with a northern lariat to cut him off!

They brawl around ringside and Orton starts climbing the cage! He gets to the top and McIntyre stares up at him, feeling frisky he starts to climb the cage himself! On the roof, Orton has a pipe and swings it but Drew trips him up and beats him down atop the cell!

They start climbing down the other side and we get our obligatory “someone needs to fall off the cell but we have do a safe one so we’re just gonna knock somebody off the side halfway down” spot as Orton knocks McIntyre off the wall and through the announce table. Randy climbs down and Drew is bleeding from the mouth and dry heaving.

Orton stalks over him as he crawls around ringside and back in the cage. Putting him inside, RKO countered into a backslide, off the ropes... CLAYMORE! BUT ORTON ROLLED OUT OF THE RING! Going after him, dragging the Viper bodily back in the ring, Drew waits, pain etched on his face, Orton ducks the Claymore...

Randy Orton wins by pinfall with the RKO to win the WWE Championship.

Post-match, Orton grabs the title and leaves, staring Drew down.

That’s the show, folks.
