For years now, fans have claimed that Hell in a Cell has lost the violent nature that made it such a spectacle in the early going.

However, on Sunday night, the WWE presented a pay-per-view that seemed to reinvigorate the demonic structure and produced several highlights.

Jeff Hardy and Randy Orton competed in the opening match of the night with the infamous cell surrounding the ring.

Both men took plenty of risks and suffered the consequences. The pressure then diverted to Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman for the main event who had a tough act to follow.

While Strowman and Reigns put on a physical match for the Universal title, Brock Lesnar's appearance at the end of the show really stole the headlines.

But The Shield also battled the Dogs of War round and on top of the cell, with Rollins and Ziggler taking a big fall from the side of the structure through the announce tables.

Many fans found themselves asking why? The two teams had already had an absolutely stellar match earlier in the night, why did they have to take the bump?

According to Dave Meltzer, he thinks the WWE didn't want Strowman or Reigns taking the bump, but fans would also expect a big moment.

“It had like nothing to do with the match. It was, ‘let’s do this because we don’t want Roman Reigns or Braun Strowman to do a big bump. So we’re going to have these 2 guys do a big bump in lieu of […] and we’re not going to give them a finish so we’re going to give them some big spot.’”

To be honest, the Lesnar return was a big enough moment as it was, did they really need the table spot? Storyline wise it makes sense that these two teams would battle, but why scale the cell? And they couldn't even influence the match so why did they run out there?

A lot of unanswered questions for sure, but with The Shield and Dogs of War set to collide at upcoming events - including the Super Showdown in Australia, some more big moments surely lie in store.
