WWE Hell in a Cell 2015 Results: Brock Wins, Del Rio Returns

WWE Hell in a Cell 2015 delivered a solid show, better than advertised, yet not as hot as some reported it would be. A show with lackluster promotion turned out to be more fun than expected with a surprise return, a new champion, a new angle, the return of blood, a hot crowd, and a thrilling finale to the Lesnar-Taker trilogy.

Brock Lesnar defeated the Undertaker in a real good Hell in a Cell match. Having watched their previous Hell in a Cell match from No Mercy 2002 about a week ago I can tell you that they stuck to the same playbook. Just as in their first HIAC match, they used a chair, steel stairs, and even drew some blood…yes blood in 2015! The match was not nearly as fast paced as their previous match but not nearly as slow as their first in the series back at Mania. It had a slow, intense pace and the fans just ate it up.

Brock was busted open in the beginning of the match right above his eye. He was about to release a gusher before a doctor came in and closed up the cut. A big spot in the match saw Undertaker kick out after taking three suplexes and two F5s. The end came when Brock started ripping up the mat to reveal the plywood. Taker got up and wound up giving Brock a choke slam and a tombstone on the open mat. Brock kicked out and hit an F5 on the open mat for the win.

Brock stumbled to the back, selling the match by falling down at one point. The fans gave Undertaker a big ovation once he finally stood up. The lights went out and Bray Wyatt’s music came on. The Wyatt family hit the ring and beat up Undertaker, carrying him to the back to close the show.

Survivor Series was advertised throughout the night as “25 years of the Undertaker” so it was a bit of a tipoff early on that an angle was coming either tonight or tomorrow. The good news is that Bray and Roman appear to be done after Roman beat him. The bad news is that we already saw this match at WrestleMania. Undertaker teamed up with Kane in Mexico recently to wrestle the Wyatts so I’d presume with Kane out of the Corporate role and the new angle that they wind up teaming against the Wyatts at Survivor Series.

For Brock, they really pushed Brock as being unstoppable during the match. After the match Lawler said at some point somebody is going to come along and beat him, etc. I have a hunch that they are going with Brock and Rock at WrestleMania, although that is just a guess. I also think we’ve seen the last of Brock until the Royal Rumble.

The show kicked off with a bang as Alberto Del Rio returned after a one-year absence returned to answer John Cena’s U.S. title open challenge in the second match on the show. Del Rio was accompanied by Zeb Coulter in this one (unfortunately I think there is way too much heat between Ricardo and management to bring him back). Del Rio and Cena had a decent match, yet probably the same match you’ve seen them have a dozen times before. Del Rio reversed the A.A. into a backstabber and a superkick for the pin and the U.S. title.

Del Rio’s name had been rumored recently to be returning to the WWE after rumors of a falling out with Lucha Underground. There were reports recently that Del Rio told promoters he wasn’t taking anymore dates so he could spend the holidays with his family. Del Rio left last August after an incident where he slapped a WWE social media employee after the employee reportedly made a racist remark. It was nice to see Del Rio as a surprise but at the end of the day it’s still Alberto Del Rio.

Seth Rollins retained the WWE world title over Kane. The match was good, not great, and certainly not terrible. I would describe it as a very long RAW main-event. The big spot in the match was Seth slipping out of a choke slam attempt on the table and power bombing Kane onto the Spanish Announce Table. The finish came when Seth hit the pedigree after a kick for a clean pin. The stipulation included Kane losing his job as Corporate Kane if he lost the match so we’ll see how that plays out on RAW Monday.
