The WWE returned to pay per view with Sunday’s Hell In A Cell, where titles changed hands and 8 matches were shoved down our throats. Overall, the three plus hours moved along but the show felt bland at times. Somewhere in that mix of ordinary, five wrestlers left Hell In A Cell as real winners.
If you missed Hell In A Cell, be sure to check our results. The Usos are now five time tag team champions and they earned every bit of that win. As promised, they turned the match into prison type fight. The Usos have really been given a second life since turning heel and moving away from Roman Reigns. Dare I say, but SmakDown’s top team could be The Usos and not New Day; who have accomplished several feats in their short time being a stable. I like The Usos as heels and it’s nice to give New Day a break. We know The Usos can carry the division and that might be their job for the next several months.

He then floated around the mid card before talk started of a major push. Corbin then become Mr. Money in the Bank and everything seemed likely for a cash in at SummerSlam. Days before the event, Corbin lost his cash in attempt and struggled following reports of an incident backstage. Finally, Corbin has gained gold in the United States Championship and it looks like WWE hasn’t given up hope. It’s time to see what Corbin does with his first title reign.

Still, New Day managed to bring their own twist to the overused Hell in a Cell gimmick. From the assortment of uncommon weapons under the ring to tying up an Uso in the corner using kendo sticks, New Day helped bring some slight entertainment in a violent match. It wasn’t New Day’s night as they dropped the SmackDown tag team titles, but they have nothing to be embarrassed about and the duo will certainly be back in the title picture soon enough.

He came in with lots of attention and eventually started working a year-long program with Kevin Owens. Since then, we haven’t seen much from Sami besides an occasional storyline and several losses to Owens. Then came Hell in a Cell. When Shane McMahon jumped off the Cell and missed, I thought nothing of it. On replay, it showed Sami came from nowhere and moved Owens from getting flattened. Sami might now be on track to finally becoming a permanent fixture of SmackDown’s main event scene.

Shane McMahon is no wrestler and more of street brawler with an MMA twist. As Owens laid into Shane, he made sure to yell and mock the SmackDown Commissioner’s children whom were sitting at ringside; and that’s why Owens is one of WWE’s best heels. The work atop the Cell was also a thing of beauty. He looked ready to drop an elbow from the top of the Cell before chickening out. Owens’ facial expressions on the Cell and after being saved by Sami Zayn made fans believe he had no clue what had happened. [Image: Photo via WWE.com]
