Scott D’Amore and Josh Matthews on the Controversial WWE Hell in a Cell Finish


During a recent interview with Forbes, Impact Wrestling Vice President Scott D’Amore and Josh Mathews (announcer) commented on the recent WWE Hell in a Cell finish, what Impact Wrestling has to do, and more. You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

D’Amore on not insulting fan’s intelligence and the finish at WWE Hell in a Cell: “You’ve gotta know when to lead and when to follow as that goes, and just try to do things that don’t insult the fan’s intelligence. I think [Impact], unfortunately in regime’s past, had a tendency to do that and it is easy to sort of fall off the track as you saw [at Hell in a Cell]. You know, it’s easy to have an old man that’s out of touch go ‘Yeah, yeah it’ll be fine. it’ll be fine…’ because it’s always fine. That’s how it works there. It’s like, ‘It’ll be fine—yeah, they complain, but they’ll never stop watching.’”

D’Amore on what Impact Wrestling has to do: “It’s literally going to the movies for 2 hours. You suspend disbelief in what we do, put on a product that they want to watch and enjoy, I mean as long as we can continue the in-depth storytelling in conjunction with the great athletes that we have in the ring, I think that combination is a winning one and it’s one that will draw in the casual fan.”

Mathews on WWE being disorganized: “It’s just not fair to just change the rules completely, right? Like, that used to happen to me on a nightly basis during the show. Sometimes things happen and sometimes they don’t. It’s like watching this football game and if they get to the five-yard line the referee said that’s a touchdown.”
