WWE Raw Review: Results, Analysis and Grades; Road to Hell in a Cell

8 of 11


Stardust vs. Neville

Result: Neville defeats Stardust via disqualification.

Stardust locked in a hold and took down Neville by the hair. Stardust went for a vertical suplex but Neville hit a hurricanrana, which commentary completely no sold. Stardust then took control with multiple stomps. Neville then hit a dropkick and the Red Arrow for the win until King Barrett came out. He hit a Bull Hammer on Neville and Stardust to cause a DQ.

Barrett says for everyone to hail the return of the king.

Rob’s Note: So Barrett is back but under the same old terrible gimmick. Yawn.

Kane Evaluation

As Ashley is about to give Kane’s performance evaluation, Seth Rollins comes out. Rollins says for no one to listen to this report. He says Kane is not the man she thinks he is.

Rollins brings up video of Kane in the mask and who he really is. Rollins says Ashley can’t cheap Kane around since he’s the Director of Operations. He brings up Kane trying to drag Rollins to hell last week. He says people like him don’t go to hell and freaks out on Kane.

Kane then brings up a video of Rollins frustrating him over the months.

Ashley says that Kane is sound of mind and is capable of fulfilling his duties as DOO. She says Kane is the perfect WWE employee and that Rollins must be evaluated.

Rollins walks into the ring and screams his head off at Kane. As Kane goes to pick up the belt, Rollins hits a Pedigree on him. Rollins then got a chair and smacked Kane in the legs and back. He then places Kane’s formerly injured ankle in a chair and stomps on it.

Rollins gets on the mic and says Kane looks very human right now as he gets placed on a stretcher.

As Rollins continued to talk, Kane broke out of the ambulance in his demon gear. He went back to the ring and Rollins tried hitting him with a chair but it didn’t effect him. He hit a chokeslam on Rollins but scurried away before the Tombstone attempt.

Rob’s Note: I like what they’re doing with Kane. This whole split-personality thing is working but this “Even Stevens” booking is not. Can Rollins ever look strong? At this point, I don’t think so and it’s hurting his title reign.

Bray Wyatt Promo

Wyatt praises Strowman and Harper’s work from earlier. He says he will tear Roman Reigns to pieces. He says he will come out alone.
