Hell in a Cell 2018 featured some surprisingly great undercard matches and some not as good (but still pretty enjoyable) main events.
Maryse returns to the ring to take on Brie Bella, a new number one contender for the SmackDown tag titles is decided, Jeff Hardy attempts to cleanse himself of Shinsuke Nakamura prior to his battle with Randy Orton, and more on a pretty good episode of SmackDown Live.
The RAW before Hell in a Cell didn’t contain anything particularly remarkable, but it was an alright show overall.
The Miz and Maryse attempt to avoid Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella (while claiming otherwise) on an okay SmackDown that had a good triple threat tag match and an interesting main event.
Ziggler and McIntyre force their way into a match, The Shield gets in trouble with the law, the Authors of Pain get a new manager, Dana Brooke gets fed up, Bobby Roode gets a tag partner, and Shawn Michaels encounters The Undertaker on a not great episode of RAW.
Carmella gets her rematch, Bryan and Almas face each other for the first time, the journey to find a new contender for the tag titles begins, and New Day meets King Booker in a pretty good episode of SmackDown Live.
Trish Stratus returns, Kevin Owens goes all in against Seth Rollins, Braun Strowman has a cunning plan, and more on a mostly good and entertaining episode of RAW.
New Day gets another shot at the tag titles in a No DQ match against the Bludgeon Brothers in a good episode of SmackDown Live containing lots of Summer Slam fallout.
Finn Balor finally gets his long-awaited Universal Title match on a pretty good episode of RAW.
This was another long WrestleMania with a mostly entertaining mixture of memorable moments, good matches, underwhelming matches, and strange decisions.
RAW 25 is a show packed with nostalgia and a ton of familiar faces!
This was a good show, mostly because of some very good matches. It also built the title match at Roadblock very well.
An okay show with a very good main event between Zack Ryder and Stardust.
Dean Ambrose challenges Triple H to a title match in a development that keeps things interesting despite the absence of their Wrestlemania opponents.
Fastlane was a mixed show. It had some very good matches, but it also had some not so great matches and very strange booking.
A good Smackdown that maintained interest in Sunday’s Fastlane with good, but unsurprising, matches.
This was a pretty good show with some nice surprises, but the ending confused me.
The show was fine, but it was made memorable due to the sad fact of Daniel Bryan’s sudden retirement from professional wrestling. His address to the fans was definitely the highlight of the show.
With some very enjoyable moments and some surprisingly good matches here along with the usual stuff that Smackdown produces, this week’s show is a good watch.
This week’s RAW was a decent show that had some interesting developments and a few really good matches.
