At Hell In A Cell, Seth Rollins defended his Universal Championship against “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt inside the steel structure. The arena was cast in a red glow throughout the contest, before the match was called off when Rollins threatened to hit the motionless Wyatt with a sledgehammer.
The Architect admitted that he wasn’t a fan of the red lighting, especially as he hadn’t been told about it. He said on WWE Backstage: “That was a mess for me. First of all you’re in this dark red. The cell is also red and you’re trying to navigate the edge of the cell. It was a mess. It was very difficult to deal with, especially with not knowing it was going to happen. I for one am not a fan. I feel like it affects my performance personally.”

Since the match, Rollins has wrestled under the red glow on numerous occasions, appearing in dark matches on Monday Night Raw against The Fiend throughout October and November. He also lost the Universal Championship while bathed in the red light at Crown Jewel.
