Hell in a Cell 2018 featured some surprisingly great undercard matches and some not as good (but still pretty enjoyable) main events.
New Day defends the SmackDown Tag Titles against Rusev Day in a very good match prior to Hell in a Cell 2018.
The RAW before Hell in a Cell didn’t contain anything particularly remarkable, but it was an alright show overall.
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.
Being the last PPV before Wrestlemania, it felt like they were playing it safe and predictable with Fastlane. Most of the matches weren’t great, there were some filler segments, and the main events didn’t really deliver. There were some bright spots on the show, but overall this one felt like an average (yet long) episode of RAW.
A good cruiserweight tag match and a few backstage segments made this a decent warmup for Fastlane.
A less than great RAW leads us into a PPV that feels less than compelling.
Other than the main event which had Braun Strowman taking on Big Show for the first time, this episode of RAW felt like we’ve seen it all before.
While the results make this show feel like more of the same from WWE, the show itself was entertaining. It wasn’t the best Royal Rumble in history, but the Rumble match itself was fine, and Styles versus Cena stole the show.
RAW celebrates Halloween with two title matches and a battle royal.
A couple of good Hell in a Cell matches make this a decent show.
The last RAW before Hell in a Cell was okay, but it felt a lot like a pre-show rather than a complete show on its own.
Goldberg returns to RAW to answer Paul Heyman’s challenge in an entertaining show that also had Rusev sharing some family photos, Seth Rollins coming up with a new nickname for Chris Jericho, Cesaro not paying much attention to Sheamus’ match against Big E, and much more!
Good opening, good closer, and some nice matches in between. I liked the show.
Sasha Banks and Charlotte continue to make a strong case for feud of the year in another title match, Jeri-KO takes on New Day in the ring and celebrities backstage, and Lana tells Roman Reigns to go to hell in a good episode of RAW.
With two title matches and some minor developments in storylines, this was a fairly entertaining episode of RAW.
This year’s Clash of Champions was entertaining enough, but nothing seemed to get resolved in any of the storylines going into it.
The cruiserweights debut (though the champ is absent), Jericho starts making a list, Rollins goes full babyface, and the main event is a pointless cage match in a pretty average yet entertaining episode of RAW.
Roman Reigns tries to work his way into the Universal Title match at Clash of Champions, Jinder Mahal debuts a new, peaceful attitude, a number one contender is decided for Charlotte’s title, and more on a pretty good episode of RAW.
Quantity over quality in terms of the matches on this show make it an okay but uneven watch.
