It's been over a week since WWE Hell in a Cell, but the reaction to the pay-per-view is still coming and it isn't all good.

The main event of the evening saw Brock Lesnar beat The Undertaker inside the steel structure to finally end their feud, with Bray Wyatt and the Wyatt Family coming out after the match to beat down 'Taker before abducting the WWE legend.

Well, Hall of Famer Jim Ross wasn't too happy with the WWE's booking of the angle and seemed enraged by how it went down.

On the most recent episode of the Ross Report, via Wrestling Inc, J.R fumed at the Wyatt's beating 'Taker down and the fact that not a single one of the babyfaces from backstage came to the aid of the legend.

No Help for Taker?

According to Ross, WWE missed the opportunity to elevate some young, up and coming talent by having them come down to the ring and try to fight the Wyatts, aligning themselves with The Undertaker in the process.

"If you're like me, you're wondering why didn't somebody, some kid, some young star, come out to help the Undertaker after all the Undertaker has meant to the [professional wrestling] business," Ross stated.

"Wouldn't you think some of those young bucks would come out and try to help Taker and then get shut down by the bad guys? It would give the Wyatts somebody to work with because they aren't going to work with the Undertaker every week on RAW."

Get Young Stars Involved

Ross went on to add that WWE still could have achieved its desired end result - the Wyatt Family going out on top - even if some babyfaces tried to help the Undertaker.

"[WWE] missed the opportunity to get some young babyfaces involved, even though they would get shut down, but they'd come out one or two at a time and get shut down by the four [heels], but [the babyfaces] are showing respect for the Undertaker." Ross continued.

J.R went on to slam Jerry Lawler and JBL as well, saying that the two commentators should have tried to come to the aid of the Undertaker as well.

Ross is right on this. It would have been the perfect chance for potentially some NXT stars to make their debuts and impart themselves into a pretty big feud heading into Survivor Series. Instead, we'll just have to wait and see who 'Taker partners with to take on The Wyatt's at the next PPV.
