“Yes, sir, we promised you a great main event…”
Tonight we’re going to talk all about last night’s Hell In A Cell pay-per-view!
We’re shown some stills, starting out with Punk whomping the crap out of Heyman on top of the cage. With a kendo stick.
Next are some stills of Bryan and RKO, with special ref HBK. HBK landed an Sweet Chin Music on Bryan to cost him the title. Shawn Michaels is apparently in the building to explain why he decided to do that. We also get to have a ”Randy Orton Celebration” whatever that means, and I can only hope party hats are involved.
Here comes John Cena. In a pink shirt. With the belt.
All the announcers are talking about his surgery maybe he came back too soon. Maybe.
He’s gonna talk about some stuff now.
Some people are happy he’s back and some people are not, which sounds about right. He wants to thank one particular skeptic, who would be JBL.
He’s very excited to be back.
He encourages Del Rio to “come get some” re: his rematch. So that could be fun.
Damian Sandow decides to come out with his briefcase. Oh? Could we be cashing?
He grabs a mic and…. “The uncrowned champ is here.” Ok. Sandow says it’s humanly impossible for a tricep to heal in the amount of time Cena was gone for. Sandow says Cena is afraid he’ll cash in.
He taunts a cash, and I got all excited, but then he changed his mind. He goes to leave the ring and then attacks Cena with the briefcase, focusing on the elbow, because of course. He yells “RISE ABOVE THIS” and then throws him into the barricade, and then into the ringsteps. He props Cena’s bad arm on the steps and slams a metal chair on him. Sandow into the ring, grabs his briefcase and THIS TIME is officially cashing in the case.
Cena has made his way into the ring. The match starts.
Match 1: Damian Sandow vs. John Cena for the World Heavyweight Title
Despite not using his bad arm, Cena seems to be spry enough. Sandow’s after him but can’t keep him down. He focuses a lot on Cena’s elbow and arm in general. He keeps trying for pins and it isn’t working for him.
Cena manages to get off a half-decent belly to belly suplex. Sandow comes back with a hiptoss and goes back to the bad arm. Sandow tries a suplex and a cover but Cena isn’t done yet.
Cena gets a big body drop on Sandow and they’re both down. Cena’s still favoring his elbow.
Back from commercial to see a pretty solid back and forth. Cena comes off the rope with the shoulder and knocks them both flat. Cena gets a big body drop and starts the Five Knuckle Shuffle but Sandow fights back. There’s a quick shot of Cena’s doctor watching at ringside.
Cena sets up for the Shuffle again but Sandow rolls out of the ring. The doctor comes up and speaks to Cena but apparently Cena chooses to continue. He picks up Sandow and throws him back into the ring. He tries to lock in the STF. Can’t really work. A quick near fall, but the match continues.
Cena tries a half-done neckbreaker but it isn’t enough to keep Sandow down. They’re both pretty done in. Suddenly Sandow gets the arm locked in but no, no Cena gets up. Sandow lands the “You’re Welcome” but that can’t keep Cena down either.
Sandow props Cena up on the turnbuckle but Cena fights back and Sandow drops to the mat. He climbs up and tries a big flying leap but Sandow moves away. Now he might have tweaked his knee. Sandow charges and Cena hits the AA out of nowhere.
He celebrates with his belt and heads backstage.
Backstage promo time with the Shield. Ambrose has to defend his title against Big E. Langston.
Match 2: Dean Ambrose vs. Big E Langston for the US Championship
Langston got a nasty cut on his face at last night’s matches that took 7 stitches; Ambrose has one under his chin that took 8.
Dang, they come right out the gate at each other. Ambrose with some hardcore clothelines and Langston with a serious kick. Ambrose in control, keeping...
