What's this? A review from your favorite Mexican. I finally caved in and purchased WWE Network. So far I don't have any complaints. I was watching WCW Spring Stampede 97 earlier today and it's amazing how much better it is without the old VHS tape I used to own. I don't know if you guys remember but I used to have the biggest and baddest WWF/ECW/WCW/AAA and New Japan tape collection. I sold it all on ebay in 2006 cause I was getting married. It sucked, I regret it, but whatever. This is not about me, it's about you and me and the rest of the WWE Universe watching Hell In A Cell on PPV or streaming like I did. Here are my thoughts on the matches, let me know if you saw it, if you liked it or if you think I'm an idiot.
Mark Henry defeated Bo Dallas
I don't know about you guys, but I BOLIEVED! And I was dumb because Mark Henry beat up Bo Dallas in a matter of moments. I still BOLIEVE though, he'll be back, I hope.
Dolph Ziggler defeated Cesaro
Dolph Ziggler is the best WWE superstar in the world. He can bump, he can fly, he can wrestle like the best I've seen. I've been singing his praises since I saw him against Rey Mysterio in 2007 or 2008. Whatever the case is, he's an incredible asset and while Cesaro is just as good, I thought this match deserved a higher placement on the card. I liked it. Man, Amy Schumer used to date Ziggler, wonder what that was like....not that I'm a big Amy Schumer fan, but oh who's kidding, Dolph is the MAN in and out of the ring.
Nikki Bella defeated Brie Bella
These two really fought each other hard, I liked it. But I admit, I am not a big divas fan. I liked this match though, it had some good moments. I don't care for the story line, and miss Daniel Bryan's goat face.
Goldust and Stardust defeated The Usos
I honestly fell asleep during this match. I was tired I guess. I don't know, it just didn't hold my attention. I think the tag team division still sucks, and they need to revamp it and have long standing tag teams that are worth watching, not these idiots.
John Cena defeated Randy Orton
Now this was a good match up. I thought I was going to hate this one, but nope, Cena and Orton can put on a show, and they did so here. Orton took some nice bumps, but it was Cena's timing that really worked well here, or should I say didn't work well since he got hit with an RKO out of nowhere. Orton's coming into a DDP element if you ask me. It's quite fascinating how this is all working out. I loved the match, but didn't like Cena winning yet again. Overall solid outing. No complaints from me. Perhaps no blood, that would've been a nice touch.
Sheamus defeated The Miz
I don't like The Miz. How did this guy main event Wrestlemania and CM Punk didn't? I don't get it. I hate this guy. Sandow is wasted here, but the comedic timing is golden, so maybe I'm just wrong. Sheamus won after the "BRO" kick. I'll never call it by the real name, I like the "BRO" aspect. This match was ok, but predictable for me. Sheamus needs better competition.
Rusev defeated Big Show
I've said it once and I'll say it again, Big SLOW sucks. SLOOOWWW and boring. Rusev wins again. Who cares?! I hope Kurt Angle comes in and beats him, that's all I can really say about this. Otherwise, this is just another wasted angle to me.
AJ Lee defeated Paige
Not a terrible match, but not one that was memorable either. The divas division is lacking real wrestling talent, or bigger women. These women are little and well, boring to me. Aj Lee has gotten better though, so kudos there for retaining the title.
Seth Rollins defeated Dean Ambrose
This was a highlight filled match up. I love the start of the match on the cage, I loved the sick bump off the center of the cage, and then things got more insane. Seth Rollins just reminds me of a broke ass CM PUNK. This guy is getting a push when Punk didn't? I don't like it, but that's life. Seth Rollins' in ring gear sucks in my opinion. Dean Ambrose is solid, a sick wrestler with a great overall style. I don't recall specific bumps that I really loved, but I recall Ambrose putting on a clinic of brawling proportions. Rollins is rad for taking a lot of punishment, and winning despite it all, well isn't he the lucky one? Bray Wyatt interfered and cost the match in a predictable fashion. I like where this is going, so we'll see how things work out in the future.
Well well, this PPV was good overall. I liked it, but I fell asleep. That's not an indication of a bad line up, I was just tired. I sorely miss a world title match, and CM Punk not being there sucks too. Other than that, this was a good overall PPV that I will definitely peg as my favorite this year.
