Hell in a Cell 2012 Review : World Title Match Steals Show
Randy Orton vs Alberto Del Rio
I was expecting this match to be the sleeper hit of the night . Boy was I wrong . It wasn't a bad match and was going great up until Del Rio botched his top rope move and that's all I can really remember from the match . The finish was kinda botched too as Orton ' hits ' the RKO . **3/4
Team Hell No vs Team Rhodes Scholars
At one point in the match , I was so sure we were gonna have new tag champs . I wish the match didn't have to end in a stupid DQ . That made it feel like a free TV match . Rhodes Scholars wins after Kane is DQ'd for staying in the ring for too long . **
Kofi Kingston vs The Miz
Now this was a good match . There were some nice counters in there and even some close nearfalls , like with Kofi's SOS . Kofi retains in his first title defense with a trouble in paradise to the Miz . ***
Antonio Cesaro vs Justin Gabriel
I'm sick of hearing the fans chant ' we want wrestling ' and then start the boring chants on a pretty good match like this one . Gabriel looked like he had a chance of winning this one , but was taken out by a brutal uppercut . Cesaro retains with the neutraliser . **1/2
Rey Mysterio & Sin Cara vs Prime Time Players
I have no idea why this match took place . Probably just a time filler . It did end up being much better than the tag title match , that's for sure . Sin Cara took a bad bump on his head during the match . Rey gets the win with the 619 . **3/4
Sheamus vs The Big Show
This one started out slow but man did it escalate towards the finish . What a surprising ending as well . I thought it was over after Show's first WMD and then thought it was over when Sheamus hit the brogue kick . Show managed to win the World title after hitting Sheamus with a second WMD . ***3/4
Eve vs Kaitlyn vs Layla
Wow , this one felt very sloppy . Just an average divas match I guess . Eve wins by pinfall . Can't even remember who she pinned . 3/4*
CM Punk vs Ryback : Hell in a Cell
Now here's the one we were looking forward to the most . It turned out to be disappointing . The match felt too short to me and the finish came out of nowhere . They managed to make HIAC feel like a TV match . I did think Ryback looked good in there . CM Punk retains after the ref gives Ryback a low blow and Punk pins him . **3/4
After the match , Ryback DESTROYS the ref and even gives Punk a shell shock right on top of the cell .
5/10 . Not much of a show and maybe the worst of 2012 so far . The world title match saves it from being awful and there was nothing really bad outside of the divas match .
