Triple H Discusses Future Of Hell In A Cell As Standalone Event

Says the calendar should be re-evaluated

In last night's post-Survivor Series press conference, Paul Levesque was asked about recent reports regarding "themed" pay-per-views like Hell in a Cell, Money in the Bank, and Elimination Chamber possibly being removed from the pay-per-view calendar.

Levesque stated a belief that Hell in a Cell works better as a match that one wrestler could challenge another to, regardless of the time of year, but concedes that Money in the Bank and Elimination Chamber don't work that same way.

Said Levesque, "I think there's a difference there. I think we have to re-evaluate that. It's really looking at the overall calendar and saying 'what is the best place to put this, what is the best way to entertain our fans'."

WWE Hell in a Cell as a standalone pay-per-view originated in 2009, as part of a move to replace generic secondary events (No Mercy, Armageddon, et al) with events centered around specific gimmick bouts, like Hell in a Cell, TLC, Elimination Chamber, and others.

The most recent Hell in a Cell took place on June 5, and saw Cody Rhodes defeat Seth Rollins inside the namesake structure.
