WWE Hell in a Cell Pay-Per-View (Live from the Verizon Center (DC), 18,277 in Attendance)

Pre-Show: Brodus Clay and Alex Riley versus Heath Slater and Drew McIntyre
In a match that had some good action but not much in the way of heat, Slater & McIntyre defeated Brodus & Riley in 18:16 when Heath Slater defeated Brodus Clay by pinfall with a Futureshock DDT. Alex Riley seemed off his game tonight, perhaps he was nervous about performing on such a big event, albeit on the pre-show, given his lack of television time recently.
Match Rating: C

Glass can be heard shattering and the arena goes wild as “Stone Cold” Steve Austin comes to the ring. Austin takes a microphone and says that he, as well as several other former WWE Superstars, have been invited here tonight to talk about the Hell in a Cell match. Austin said that he had a great career but was unable to ever win a Hell in a Cell match. The WWE Champion CM Punk then interrupts Austin, coming to the ring and declaring that Austin never won a Hell in a Cell match because he was probably drunk all of the time. Punk says that in tonight’s main event he will prove that he is better than Austin ever was when he defeats Ryback inside the Hell in a Cell. Punk then slaps Austin before running to the back, leaving the “Texas Rattlesnake” fuming inside the ring.
Rating: A

In a match that had some good action but not much in the way of heat, Eve defeated Kaitlyn in 7:57 by pinfall with a Swinging Neckbreaker. Eve makes defence number 1 of her WWE Divas title.
Match Rating: C-

A countdown clock appears on the Titantron and the WWE Universe erupts as Y2J appears on the screen before a returning Chris Jericho makes his way to the ring. Jericho says that he is here to talk about the Hell in a Cell match, but he also has some exciting news as Vickie Guerrero has rehired him. Jericho says that his Hell in a Cell match with Triple H probably took years off of his career. Before Jericho can say anything else, however, Brock Lesnar’s music hits and the “Baddest Man on the Planet” joins Jericho in the ring. Lesnar snatches the microphone out of Y2J’s hands and says that the most iconic Hell in a Cell moment was when he bloodied and battered the Undertaker inside Satan’s most sadistic structure. Lesnar says that if he wanted to he could break Jericho there and then, just like he broke Triple H at Summerslam. Jericho seems ready for a fight, but Lesnar laughs before leaving the ring, seemingly saving the fight for another day.

We are treated to a pre-recorded interview with the “Great One”, the Rock. The Rock says that tonight CM Punk will defend his WWE Championship against Ryback in the most brutal match there is, Hell in a Cell, but to remember that the Rock hasn’t forgot what Punk did to him on RAW 1000 and reminds everyone that he will be challenging for the WWE Championship at the Royal Rumble.
Rating: A

WWE Intercontinental Championship: Kofi Kingston © versus The Miz
In a bout that featured great action and a good crowd, Kofi Kingston defeated The Miz in 18:29 by pinfall with a Trouble in Paradise. Kofi Kingston makes defence number 1 of his WWE Intercontinental title.
Match Rating: C+

The screen goes back following replays of the Intercontinental Champion Kofi Kingston’s title defence, and a cabin can be seen on the Titantron. The video package continues with the camera moving closer and closer to the cabin before the door swings open. Darkness again, until the Undertaker can be seen looking into the camera. The Undertaker says that tonight two tortured souls in CM Punk and Ryback will go to war inside the Hell in a Cell, and that neither man will ever be the same again. Darkness again fills the arena, before the lights come back on.
Rating: B+

Match Rating: C+

We are treated to another pre-recorded interview, this time of the legendary Degeneration X pairing of Triple H and Shawn Michaels. Triple H says that he has been in more Hell in a Cell matches than anybody else, and that if he will never wrestle again, it is just as much down to them than what Brock Lesnar did to him at Summerslam. Shawn Michaels then reminds the WWE Universe that he was in the first ever Hell in a Cell match, and that he thinks that match is the reason his career was almost ended with a back injury.
Rating: B+

Randy Orton versus Alberto Del Rio
In a match that had excellent in-ring action and great heat from the audience, Randy Orton defeated Alberto Del Rio in 17:46 by pinfall with an RKO. Ricardo Rodriguez accompanied Del Rio to ringside, but was unable to help his employer win tonight.
Match Rating: B+

We cut backstage to find Layla walking down a hallway before she bumps into Kevin Nash. “Big Sexy”, who hasn’t been seen on WWE programming in over a year, asks Layla if she wants to go out with him after the show, he says that he was invited here to talk about the Hell in a Cell match but he can think of much better ways to spend his evening. Layla says politely to Nash that she has other plans for tonight, before he snaps and tells her that it’s that sort of ungratefulness which cost Layla her Divas Championship to Eve. Nash says that he’s going to find Eve and ask her out instead, and that Layla doesn’t know what she’s missing. Layla then reminds Nash that the last time he was here he was beaten by Triple H. Layla then skips off, leaving Nash looking angry.
Rating: C+

We cut backstage to find Kelly Kelly getting her bag ready to leave the building before she is attacked by Beth Phoenix, Natalya and Kharma. The Monday Night RAW Managing Supervisor Vickie Guerrero then can be seen behind Beth, Natalya and Kharma barking orders as they assault Kelly. AJ Lee then comes into the room and aids Kelly, and is soon joined by Kaitlyn who also tries to fend off the attackers. A brunette then rushes into the room and she too joins Kaitlyn and AJ in defending Kelly, and the brunette is soon recognised as being Trish Stratus! Trish, Kaitlyn, Kelly and AJ brawl with Beth, Natalya, Kharma and Vickie before officials rush into the room in an attempt to separate the Divas.

In a bout that featured great action and a good crowd, CM Punk defeated Ryback in a Hell in a Cell match in 16:30 by pinfall with a Roundhouse Kick. CM Punk makes defence number 6 of his WWE title.
Match Rating: B-

(Ryback can perform better if used in matches that suit his skills, putting him in a High Spot based match does not play to his strengths.)

(CM Punk can also perform better if used in matches that suit his skills, and putting him in a High Spot based match does not play to his strengths either.)
