WWE Hell in a Cell 2020: Live updates, new champion, results and match ratings


Hell in a Cell is not over but, nevertheless it’s already been a newsworthy night time. It opened with Roman Reigns versus Jey Uso, featured a robust bout between Bayley and Sasha Banks, and there was a fairly large shock wedged in between.

After a wonderful match at SummerSlam and a dumbfounding one at Clash of Champions, Randy Orton will problem for Drew McIntyre’s WWE Championship for a 3rd time to finish the present. Under you may discover the outcomes to this point, and we’ll replace a the present goes on. 

Bobby Lashley beats Slapjack 

This impromptu bout between Bobby Lashley and Retribution’s Slapjack was for america Championship. After a fast, nothing match, Lashley submitted Slapjack with the Harm Lock. After the match, Mustafa Ali got here to the ring with the remainder of Retribution. Lashley single-handedly fought them off, after which the Harm Enterprise hit the ring. Retribution fled.

Ranking: 1 star. RIP Retribution. 

Sasha Banks beats Bayley

After a prolonged Hell in a Cell match, Sasha Banks grew to become SmackDown Ladies’s Champion after she made Bayley faucet out. 

This was a protracted, back-and-forth match. It was flawed bout, feeling disjointed at occasions, however finally an impressive one. Banks is completely superior, with inventive offense all through and in addition some excellent promoting. She hit Bayley with a variety of inventive Meteoras all through — operating up a desk, off the ringside into the cage, and so forth —  and finally received with a Banks Assertion augmented with a chair round Bayley’s neck.

Bayley did effectively on her half, too. I’ve typically discovered her offense unconvincing, and that was a difficulty at factors right here. However she was excellent when it counted, particularly in direction of the top because the depth constructed to the top. It is arduous doing a 20 minute-plus Cell match in entrance of a digital crowd, and these performers each did nice.

Ranking: four stars. Imperfect, however distinctive. 

The Miz pins Otis to win Cash within the Financial institution briefcase

The Miz pinned Otis after Tucker betrayed his Heavy Equipment tag-team associate. Otis smashed Otis within the head with the briefcase when the ref wasn’t trying, with the Miz pinning Otis instantly after. 

The match main as much as this second was subaverage. Miz offense is mostly weak, and that is made extra evident if you’re anticipated to take it critically in opposition to a a lot bigger opponent. John Morrison, Miz’ tag associate, intervened at varied factors, and was ejected moments earlier than Tucker’s betrayal.

It was a shocker when Otis received the briefcase, much more so as soon as Roman Reigns grew to become champion. It is arduous to think about a protracted program between Reigns and Otis, somewhat simpler to see Reigns defeat a difficult Miz. 

The truth that Miz received this match makes the cutesy construct, which was principally a comedy skit that includes JBL as adjudicating a spat between Miz and Otis, all of the extra galling.

Ranking: 2 stars. 

Jeff Hardy vs. Elias ends with DQ

A SmackDown-quality match with a SmackDown-quality ending. 

After an OK match, Hardy hit a Twist of Destiny on Elias. He went for a Swanton Bomb however Elias rolled out of the ring and tried to assault Hardy together with his guitar. Hardy blocked him, took the guitar and smashed it over Elias’ again, resulting in an unceremonious DQ.

Ranking: 1.5 stars. Simply there. 

Roman Reigns makes Jey Uso say ‘I Give up’

Hell in a Cell opened with Roman Reigns versus Jey Uso, an I Give up match inside a Cell cage. After a protracted, dramatic bout, Reigns made Jey say “I Give up” when Reigns locked a guillotine onto Jey’s twin brother Jimmy.

This match was similar to their confrontation at Conflict of Champions. It began with implausible back-and-forth motion (completely different from their Conflict match, which was nearly all Reigns), after which slowed down for the ultimate stretch. Reigns had speared Jey thrice and locked on a guillotine, after which Jey was largely immobile. When Jey refused to give up, Reigns hit a Driveby dropkick onto the metal steps, which smashed into Jey’s head.

Reigns took the metal steps and laid them atop Jey, telling him to give up. When Jey, who was mainly useless, refused, Jimmy bumped into the cage (defeating the aim of getting a cage) and begged him to cease. Reigns acted contrite, and shook Jimmy’s hand — earlier than locking on a guillotine, resulting in Jey quitting to avoid wasting Jimmy.

The dynamic motion that the primary two-thirds of the bout consisted of was wonderful. Reigns is a fierce heel, and Jey’s offence as an underdog babyface is implausible. The dramatic highpoint got here when Jey introduced out a strap and started choking Reigns, who started to cross out. Finally, it could be Reigns’ guillotine choke moments later that ended Jey.

After the match, Afa and Sika, Reigns’ dad and uncle, topped him the Tribal Chief. 

Ranking: 3.5 stars. Excellent. The storyline was nearly an identical in idea and execution as final month’s match, making it much less efficient. The final third, the place Jey was useless and Reigns was attempting to eek an “I Give up” out of him, additionally may have been trimmed by a couple of minutes. However the motion continuing it was wonderful.
