WWE Hell In a Cell: Return of the Lackluster Pay-Per-View

Just as I thought, WWE couldn’t get a streak of good pay-per-views going. After the last few events have delivered in storyline and intrigue, Hell in a Cell seemed to drop the ball.

WWE Night of Champions: Two Enjoyable Pay-Per-Views in a Row!?

Well I’ll be damned. I was honestly expecting to be let down with this one as the last month went by. A fair amount of rematches from SummerSlam and recycled Raw matches?
