This past weekend we saw the first Smackdown PPV since Summerslam which was the Hell in a Cell event. With my opinion of this PPV concept aside this event was actually really good. Though there was a time when I would do this consistently however, this PPV was good enough to deserve it. At this point I can say that I will look back at three moments from the show which includes the best, middle, and the worst moments from the event.
To start we look at the worst moment from the PPV event which was the WWE Championship match between Shinsuke Nakamura and Jinder Mahal. Now I know that some of you may agree and others may not agree due to the two people involved. But to be clear the booking of Jinder hasn't been good at all since he moved over to Smackdown as they seemingly rushed into him being champion. Considering the India tour isn't set on the calendar until December so I don't know why they decided to give him the title so quick and without any build. My negative opinion of this match has nothing to do with Nakamura losing as it has nothing to with Jinder. My issue is with the booking of Jinder over the last few months.
The moment from the show that left me undecided due to the ending of the match is the United States title match. The sole reason that I am unsure of how I feel about this math is because I called the ending of the match due to the addition of Tye Dillenger. Even though I am happy that they are finally giving something to Baron after so many weeks of making him look bad. However, this comes with a predictable outcome and unfortunately that effected my would've been positive opinion of the match.
With the ending of the main event there is no way I could pick any other moment as the top moment from Hell in a Cell. For the last four months or so we have seen a long term build to Shane McMahon and Kevin Owens. The real highlight of the build was when Kevin attacked Vince on a recent episode of Smackdown. But I have to say that when they went on top of the Cell and fought around I was holding my breath as I remembered King of the Ring 98 when the Cell was giving way. There two moments that made this match incredible and one of them was when Kevin almost throw Shane from the Hell in Cell but luckily it was blocked. However, obviously the highlight of the match was when Shane leaped from the roof of the Cell and we saw Kevin get pulled out of the way by. Instead of continuing to guess what might happen all I will suggest is tune into Smackdown later tonight.
