On Monday Night Raw, Randy Orton went to the back and talked to Triple H and Stephanie McMahon about wrestling the loser of the John Cena vs. Seth Rollins match that night. The way Orton talked, it sound like he would wrestle the loser in the main event of Hell in a Cell. There was a chance that the WWE would end a show with John Cena vs. Randy Orton.
After the main event of Raw, the WWE Universe knew that Cena would face Orton, and Ambrose would take on Rollins at Hell in a Cell. What was left out of the equation was the actual main event. Which match did the WWE schedule to close out Hell in a Cell? According to Wrestling News Source, the main event is something that the WWE Universe has definitely seen before.
“The main event for the Hell In A Cell pay-per-view is planned to be John Cena vs. Randy Orton.”
Why exactly are Orton and Cena headlining an event that wasn’t built around them? The only reason Cena was thrown into the mix is due to the fact that Rollins severed Cena’s chances to win the WWE World Heavyweight championship. This is Ambrose’s fight to finish, and the sole purpose should’ve led to a main event for the two young stars. Orton vs. Cena headlined multiple pay-per-views in the past. It should be time to let Ambrose and Rollins do their thing in a 30-minute main event.
Yes, plans were changed last minute last week, but that shouldn’t alter the WWE’s long-term plans for Hell in a Cell. Maybe it’s an opinion that I don’t agree with, but the fans want to see Ambrose vs. Rollins, not Cena and Orton. The latter-two will never stop making money for the WWE. Sooner or later however, the former-Shield members will eclipse their popularity.
They will undoubtedly steal the show at Hell in a Cell. WWE officials must be aware of this. If they are the co-main event, the crowd will not be into the last match. How will the veterans be able to follow a five-star match? Since Cena and Orton aren’t technical superstars, their ability to steal a show is very hard, almost impossible.
As for Rollins, Stone Cold Steve Austin had choice words for the young star. His complaints were towards the WWE, as he felt they emasculated Rollins at the Night of Champions pay-per-view. It was the way that Rollins attempted to cash in his briefcase that bothered Austin. There is certainly enough room for criticism over the WWE’s recent bookings. Nothing will be perfect, but they could at least make sense in their plans.
Overall, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins should main event WWE’s Hell in a Cell pay-per-view. Those two arguably carried the company when Daniel Bryan went out with injury. Without those two superstars, the WWE is very different, and not in a good way.
