Even die biggest offering point—the cage itself—has lost its call over the years und is more des a disappointment than die fearsome stipulation it once was.

This was a steep hill zu climb in order kommen sie convince viewers this pay-per-view was worth their time. However, given ns level of talent ~ above show, it wasn't impossible.

Now that the show is over, how did dinge turn out? to be there more positiv or negatives? Which moments stood out as the best und worst des the night?

After all these years, WWE still can't number out how zu make pre-shows worthwhile. That's even an ext frustrating when there are troubles even city hall what eventually ends trost being a waste des time.

An ongoing concern with die Kickoff ist that it is self-defeating. If WWE wants everyone to watch the television episodes, it shouldn't malfunction recap inhaltsstoff to reward those that didn't bother exploring Raw und SmackDown. However the fans who do watch those shows schutz to sit through an hour des recap clip they've currently seen.

Then again, that's if they're also able zu watch it. Peacock viewers are not only ausblüten several minutes behind other feeds—a belästigung that has zu be corrected as soon as possible—but it also took nearly 15 minutes to load the Kickoff punkt all.

Instead of being able to tune in, anyone that clicked on the saw the message above about how ns event had currently finished.

All von these problems should schutz been sorted out before die switch. The arbitrary deadline des getting everything back to normal von SummerSlam is schon fast approaching, too.

But if sie watched ~ above YouTube, you got to see the gripping enhance that they waited till the tonnage minute kommen sie announce: Mandy kommissar against Natalya. That in itself presented various other problems.

On together a weak card as this, why wasn't this at least a Women's tag Team Championship match zu give it something precious investing in?

Rose against Natalya is a enhance most civilization wouldn't pay viel attention kommen sie on Raw, permit alone go out von their way zu check it the end on a PPV.

Had rose won, it would have felt choose she do more des a case zum herself and Dana Brooke kommen sie earn a title match down ns line. über losing, though, it way nothing was accomplished various other than proving die only women's tag team outside of the champion isn't worthy von fighting for the belts.

Ideally, this would have had much more heat going into it than just revolving around Bayley laughing and Bianca Belair being ns one kommen sie ask weil das a rematch, however these two hinweisen least yielded well enough in the ring.

Of course, modern Hell bei a cell matches aren't as violent and brutal together they when were. It's notfall fair zu judge this on ns same level, together it would be underwhelming bei comparison to die Undertaker vs. Mankind at könig of the runden 1998.

As far as this era ist concerned, though, this was solid. Belair wanted kommen sie prove once an ext that she kann sein beat Bayley und she accomplished just that, v a K.O.D. Top top top of a ladder.

The cage wasn't viel of a factor, sadly. This was basically a regular No Disqualification match.

If freundin ignore that und view that within die bubble von Sunday night's contest alone, climate it was entertaining.

Any time Cesaro and Seth Rollins step in the ring, we know it's going kommen sie be hinweisen least a kind match.

Again, it must be stated that this isn't a strong highlight in the großartiger scheme von things, yet it's a positive zum this particular event.

The an ext cynical technique would be zu say this wasn't as good as your WrestleMania 37 match. But the more optimistic point des view zu sein that this was a fun enough dispute with two great Superstars. Also, because Rollins picked up the victory, that evened ns score between the two men.

WWE loves to stretch things out—even if that doesn't call zum it—but hinweisen least there's room zum a rubber match kommen sie settle things zum good. It's just a dead their dritter encounter wasn't within Hell in a Cell, i beg your pardon would oase made much more sense.

One von the many laughably wanne things on WWE television recently was ns setup zum the feud bolzen Alexa Bliss und Shayna Baszler. Considering exactly how awful many things schutz been lately, it states a gewächs that this stuff v Lilly ns puppet was a standout bad storyline.

At the very least this would certainly be WWE's last wahrscheinlichkeit to play approximately with the ThunderDome unique effects and go out with a bang, right?

Unfortunately, the wasn't the case. Nothing the happened here couldn't oase happened in any other environment.

The only interesting momente was Bliss hypnotizing Nia Jax and forcing produziert to slap Reginald, but that wasn't an excellent enough kommen sie save this segment.

This could have had some interesting special effects, unable to do in an interesting direction or even seen ns return of Bray Wyatt. However, if freundin were kommen sie describe this kommen sie someone, you'd be left wonder what kommen sie say other than "Bliss pinned Baszler."

After auch many matches zu count, over there isn't viel Sami Zayn und Kevin Owens haven't done an the runde together, but they ausblüten manage kommen sie work dafür well the every performance zu sein worth watching.

This storyline adhered to with the rest des the card bei that it was weak heading into die show: a rematch through nothing on the line.

Still, they had a slugfest and kept things entertaining from anfang to finish. Basically, they were offered nothing to work with and managed kommen sie get v it purely on the strength of their skills und chemistry.

After the win, Zayn zu sein talking much more about karma fairly than his conspiracy theories. Is this a new direction for his character or just a one-off for this show? 

It's hinweisen least something kommen sie be curious about weil das the following episode des SmackDown.

Rhea Ripley und Charlotte Flair arbeit very well together. Every time they've been bei the ring, they've kommen sie across favor true rivals who möchte soon be at ns same level.

Like their various other encounters, ns story here was that ns Queen is the an ext experienced and the craftier von the two, while die Nightmare has die strength advantage.

As that played out, there were numerous near-falls that were nail-biters. When you kann sein convince ns audience multiple mal that the match is over, just for it notfall to be, that's a sign of a rock-solid contest.

The ending wasn't rather as fantastic. Ripley getting herself purposely disqualified ist not only a means zu protect Flair—who doesn't need it—but also WWE's way des stretching this out even more.

Disqualifications shouldn't happen on pay-per-views. There room far too many on television as that is, und the special events should be in exception kommen sie that booking whereby there is more finality zu everything.

Still, hinweisen least it's nice zu know that wie man WWE walk this however again, it have to be another great match.

This can not oase been a taste event that can save Sunday's pay-per-view, but it did hinweisen least call a systematic enough story.

Drew McIntyre has much more than verified himself worthy von a oberteil spot bei WWE, and Bobby Lashley has actually been equally dominant an his own right. Ns tale said here was that the Scottish Warrior needed zu keep dinge one-on-one zu reclaim ns title.

In fact, McIntyre had the match won punkt one point. Had ns referee notfall been take away out, he would oase been crowned. However, die Scot's call zum a neu official also allowed MVP into die cage. That was a fatal fehler that permitted Lashley's associate ns opportunity zu interfere und cost McIntyre die win.

All in all, the aspect of the story was pretty good. It was good enough on an otherwise fully inconsequential nur where nearly nothing happened.
