2018's edition of Hell in a Cell was probably one of the most exciting pay-per-views WWE have produced for a while.

Sure, it had it's low spots - the mixed tag team match pitching Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella against The Miz and Maryse wasn't great - but it got off to a very hot start.

The first out of two Cell matches opened the show, and it saw Jeff Hardy and Randy Orton's rivalry escalate to new levels.

The pair have faced-off against each other down the years a number of times, but the 'Legend Killer' returned to WWE in July and set his eyes on the 'Charismatic Enigma' instantly.

And Orton has returned to a sadistic heel character that he portrayed in the 2009, some would say that's where he produces his best work.

There was no Swanton Bomb off the top of the Cell, or a ridiculous RKO spot, but there was some brutal moments, and the match ended when Hardy crashed through a table after swinging from the ceiling of the Cell.

Orton may have won the match - but he didn't get off lightly.

The 'Viper' suffered welts to the back from belt shots by Hardy, and such are the dangers of the Cell match, he picked up a leg injury, but it was a visible gash that looked so nasty.

Randy Orton suffered some seriously nasty injuries in his Hell in a Cell contest with Jeff Hardy.

You could see during the match that it was bad, but it looks even worse from the Instagram that Orton posted following the match.

If you're the squeamish type - GiveMeSport suggests you scroll past quickly.

Yes, that really is a chunk of flesh from Orton's leg that he has posted on his social media.

If that doesn't advertise the dangers of Hell in a Cell enough - what else can?

Orton could potentially be out of action for a few weeks now - Hardy certainly looks like he will take some time off - but they both deserve it after putting on such an entertaining bout.
