The Day WWE Hell In A Cell Died

...and who - if anybody - can bring it back to life?

Hell In A Cell is here! Though should it be?

WWE's annual mess of mesh is far from the force it once was, mostly because snarky dorks like your writer can refer to both the show and the gimmick and "WWE's annual mess of mesh" instead of with the gravitas and respect it used to command.

It's unfair in this of all years too, because Bayley and Sasha Banks have engaged in a feud that's lasted nearly all of 2020, been rich in detail throughout, and hopped over all the hurdles erected by WWE's counterproductive storytelling mechanisms.

It's unfair in this of all years too too, because Roman Reigns' heel turn has revitalised an entire television show and elevated a decidedly B-level programme with Jey Uso into the sort of pathos-laden play that arguably deserves a stage bigger than the one they'll step on to.

It's also got Randy Orton facing Drew McIntyre for the third time in as many months. And it's this match - through no fault of the competitors themselves - that underscores that the concept is long under the sod.
