WWE fans still can’t believe that the ending to Hell In A Cell earlier this month really happened.
For the few that didn’t see, the match between Seth Rollins and ‘The Fiend’ was stopped by the referee after Rollins unleashed a weapon-based assault on his stricken opponent.
Normally it’s ‘anything goes’ when it comes to Hell In A Cell matches, but the rules were bent to make sure no-one lost, despite how ridiculous it was.
With Bray Wyatt heading to SmackDown in the WWE Draft, the feud between the two men was expected to be consigned to the history books.
But the surprising news came out earlier this week that they will go at it again at Crown Jewel on October 31, in a Falls Count Anywhere match for Rollins’ Universal Championship.

So much for the Brand Split…
Unless Wyatt is going to make a surprise move to Raw, you can’t really see him walking out of Saudi Arabia as the new champion, but stranger things have happened.
WWE really have one-upped themselves though when it comes to promoting this match though.
A new match graphic released during SmackDown for the match has an added stipulation, and it’s not only backed WWE into a corner following Hell In A Cell, but it makes them look very stupid.
The company have genuinely added the tag-line ‘Can’t Be Stopped For Any Reason’ to the bout, which means we will see a winner, or perhaps a double pin which will end the match in a draw.
Predictably the graphic is being laughed at on social media, and it’s just a testament of how bad the decision to end Hell In A Cell in the manner they did was.
There’s every chance that it may be removed in the near future due to fan backlash, but it’s happened now and it’s got a lot of attention.
