The WWE Universe is still looking for answers after the controversial main event ending at Hell in a Cell, where Seth Rollins was disqualified for attacking Bray Wyatt with a sledgehammer.
Hell in a Cell matches always carry no disqualification stipulations, so the ending made absolutely no sense to fans. Referee Rod Zapata released a statement and said he was simply looking out for Wyatt's safety.
But it's not enough, and fans will continue to wonder why such an ending took place. The spectators in Sacramento chanted "AEW" and "Refund" following a finish that won't be forgotten any time soon.
Interestingly, Vince McMahon actually had a much different plane in place for the Hell in a Cell ending. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter (h/t Ringside News), the original call was for Wyatt to "take a gimmicked bump off the top of the cage."
This would make Wyatt "injured" and thus no longer capable of continuing the match. The Universal Championship bout would then be stopped, only for Wyatt to come up in Undertaker-like fashion and attack Rollins with his mandible claw.
This ending would have made a lot more sense, and fans would have certainly enjoyed it more than the disqualification ruling. It makes you wonder why WWE went with this ending instead.
Both Wyatt and Rollins were absent from this week's episode of Monday Night Raw. It'll be interesting to see what both men have to say when they make their next appearance on television. Rollins is set to face Roman Reigns on tomorrow's episode of SmackDown Live to determine which brand will get the No. 1 pick in the WWE draft.
WWE Made A Huge Mistake
WWE is not in a position where they can continue to get away with booking however they please while ignoring the fans' wishes. There's a rival AEW promotion that's off to a strong start, and if WWE is going to run finishes like this, then it only helps the rival competition gain more steam. Hopefully, the company learned their lesson, and we won't go through such a strange finish like this again.
