R-Truth def. Drew Gulak - 24/7 Championship - Kickoff Show
The match started with Drew Gulak playing with Little Jimmy, but Daniel Bryan's former coach suddenly punted R-Truth's invisible friend from out of nowhere.
Gulak dominated the next few minutes using his technical wrestling prowess after a brief flurry from the champion. Truth eventually fought back into the match, though, and caught Drew with a Five Knuckle Shuffle.
Gulak later tried to connect with a Superplex, but both men climbed down from the ropes. They then exchanged pinning combinations and Truth rolled up the challenger for the 1-2-3.
After the match, Ali cut a promo and declared The Hurt Business don't care about people, only profits. He then challenged MVP to put his best fighter forward for a match with a member of RETRIBUTION.
Roman Reigns def. Jey Uso - Hell In A Cell "I Quit" Match for the Universal Championship
What has been billed as "the highest stakes match in WWE history" opened the Hell In A Cell main card. Both men jawed back and forth and locked up in the opening moments. Reigns quickly established his dominance with a Shoulder Tackle and proceeded to methodically wear down his cousin with a Suplex and Clotheslines.
Reigns declared Uso was wasting his time, but Jey fought back with a Superkick and two Suicide Dives, sending Roman crashing into the cell. The six-time WWE Tag Team Champion threw Reigns into the cell some more on the outside and rolled the Universal Champion back into the ring. Uso tried to follow up with some more offence but The Tribal Chief caught him with a Spear.
Reigns continued to taunt Jey. Uso tried to rally but Roman caught him with another Spear. Reigns went for a third Spear but Jey countered with a Superkick. He followed up with the Uso Splash. Jey hit a second Uso Splash and accidentally landed on The Tribal Chief's head. The official asked if Roman wanted to give up, but he replied: "the head of the table never quits."
Jey brought a leather strap into the fray and whipped his cousin with it. Roman got to his feet and hit a third Spear. Jey told the official he couldn't breathe but refused to quit. Reigns then said he does the whipping around here and proceeded to use the leather strap against his cousin. Reigns tied himself and Uso together with the leather strap. He whipped the challenger some more and eventually went for a Superman Punch. Jey managed to duck and wrap the leather strap around his cousin's neck, choking him out. Despite being kayfabe unconscious, Reigns refused to quit when he came around.
Uso tried to hit Roman with a steel chair but the Universal Champion caught him with a Superman Punch. Roman then locked in the Guillotine Choke but Jey refused to quit. As Uso lay recovering, Roman demanded his cousin quit and told him he would be taking his violence to the next level.
With a cold, dead look in his eye, Reigns hit a hellacious Drive-By to Jey. Roman next picked up the steel steps and hit another Drive-By onto the steps into his cousin's head. With Uso unconscious, the referee said he would have to call the match. Roman refused to let him, though, and flung the official over the top rope. The outside referee then came into the ring and the likes of Adam Pearce entered the squared circle to protect Jey. Roman refused to let anyone get in the way of his path of destruction and shut the cell door.
As Jey lay helpless, Roman picked up the steel steps and went to crush his cousin, but Jimmy charged to the ring and lay across his brother's body. Jimmy tried to get Roman to stop. Reigns started to cry and said he didn't know who he was any more. He then told Jimmy he was sorry and trapped him in the guillotine.
To protect his brother, Jey told the referee, "I quit."
Uso cried in the centre of the ring after the bell while The Big Dog stood tall with the Universal Championship. Afa and Sika then made their way to the ramp and adorned Roman with the chief's beads.
Elias def. Jeff Hardy by Disqualification
Before the match, Elias performed a song and made repeated references to Jeff's struggles with alcohol addiction. He must have been stealing his material from Sheamus and every other person The Charismatic Enigma has feuded with since he returned.
Both men exchanged momentum in the opening minutes but Elias took control after Hardy went for a dive and crashed into the barricade. The Drifter almost won the match by count-out, but Jeff managed to crawl back into the ring. Elias proceeded to wear Hardy down with a big Clothesline and a Sleeper Hold.
Hardy fought back with a flurry of Strikes, an Atomic Drop and a Leg Drop. He went for the Twist Of Fate but Elias countered into a Sit-Out Powerbomb for a near fall. Jeff hit Whisper In The Wind soon after and connected with the Twist Of Fate. The former WWE Champion tried to follow up with a Senton Bomb. Elias rolled to the outside before Jeff could hit the move, though. Elias picked up his guitar, but Jeff grabbed it off him and smashed it across The Drifter's back.
The Miz def. Otis - Money In The Bank Briefcase
This was Otis's first pay-per-view match since winning the Money In The Bank Briefcase. The King Of The Caterpillar demolished The Miz in the opening moments, hitting him with PowerSlams and Clotheslines.
The A-Lister managed to get some offence in after John Morrison interfered when the official wasn't looking. He hit Otis with the famous It Kicks and tried to wear his opponent down with a Sleeper Hold. He followed up with more It Kicks. Otis hulked up, though, and went for the Caterpillar. Morrison pulled the former WWE Champion out of the ring, saving the matchup. Morrison tried to interfere again and hit Otis with the MITB briefcase, but the official caught him in the act and ejected him from ringside.
Miz lamented the loss of his friend and Otis almost picked up the win with a Roll-Up. Otis connected with some more offence and had the match won, but oh my god, Tucker suddenly turned on Otis and smashed his friend across the face with the Money In The Bank briefcase.
The Miz looked on in stunned silence and covered Otis for the 1-2-3. We have a new Mr. Money In The Bank.
After the match, Tucker said Otis can do nothing without him. The King Of The Caterpillar then appeared from out of nowhere and attacked the disgusting individual who betrayed him.
Sasha Banks def. Bayley - Hell In A Cell Match for the SmackDown Women's Championship
Bayley brought a chair to the ring, but Sasha hoofed it from her grasp. The Boss controlled the early going and quickly locked in the Bank Statement. Bayley bit her former friend to escape and rammed Banks into the cell. The Role Model introduced a kendo stick to the match. The Boss took it from her, though, and threw it out of the cell.
Sasha grabbed a table from under the ring. After setting it up, she rammed Bayley into the steel with the weapon and followed up with a Meteora into the cell. Sasha hit another Meteora in the ring and tried to use a Steel Chair. Bayley caught her with a Roll Up for a near fall. She then dumped Banks to the floor.
Later, Bayley tripped Banks into kendo sticks and the steel steps. She followed up by Catapulting The Blueprint into two more kendo sticks. The SmackDown Women's Champion dominated the action for the next few minutes, taunting her former best friend until Sasha Powerbombed Bayley into the cell.
The action re-entered the ring and Sasha flung Bayley into a steel chair draped in the corner. Bayley fought back moments later and hit a Sunset Flip on her opponent, sending Banks flying into the same chair. She followed up with the Elbow Drop for a two count.
The Standard caught the champion with a Backstabber and locked in the Bank Statement. Bayley escaped and trapped Banks in the apron. She then smashed her opponent's head into the ring beam and beat her down with a kendo stick. Bayley fashioned herself a double kendo stick with duct tape soon after and placed it in between the ring and the cell. She went back to collect Sasha but The Boss countered by spraying a fire extinguisher in her eyes. Bayley looked for the exit but Banks hit a flurry of strikes on her former friend and repeatedly tossed her into the cell.
The action entered the squared circle once again and Banks punished Bayley with a Kendo Stick over and over again. Sasha was noticeably emotional. Bayley tried to crawl towards a steel chair. Sasha kicked it away and scaled the top rope, but Bayley managed to grab the chair and use it to protect herself from Banks' Frog Splash.
Bayley placed a ladder across two steel chairs soon after and drove Sasha face-first into the unforgiving steel. She then sprayed an "X" on Banks while she was draped on the ladder and tried to follow up with a Flying Elbow with the steel chair. Banks managed to roll out of the way, though, and connected with the Double Knees in the corner and a Bayley To Belly. Somehow, the champion kicked out at two.
Bayley hit her own Bayley To Belly soon after for a near fall. She looked to capitalise by beating Sasha down with a steel chair. She went for another Bayley To Belly with the steel chair but The Blueprint countered into a Hip Toss and trapped The Role Model in a Bank Statement while her head was stuck in the chair. Banks then repeatedly kicked the steel chair and Bayley had no choice but to tap out.
Bobby Lashley def. Slapjack - United States Championship
Bobby Lashley dominated Slapjack in the opening moments with his power and a Delayed Vertical Suplex. He repeatedly pummelled the former Shane Thorne in the corner but Slapjack fought back with some strikes and a Cannonball. Slapjack followed up with a DDT but Lashley kicked out at two. The RETRIBUTION then scaled the top rope but Lashley caught him and launched him across the ring.
The All Mighty locked in the Hurt Lock moments later for the victory.
T-Bar and Mace came to the ring and tried to attack the United States Champion. Lashley managed to fight them both off and The Hurt Business stood tall to end the segment. Another victory for capitalism.
Randy Orton def. Drew McIntyre - Hell In A Cell Match for the WWE Championship
McIntyre made his way to the ring first. Orton was disguised at ringside as a member of the production team and snuck up behind the champion before he entered the cell. This led to both men brawling around the ringside area and McIntyre eventually tossed The Viper inside the steel structure and the referee locked the door.
McIntyre punished Orton around the cell to open the matchup, forcing Randy's skull into the steel and tossing him into the structure. The Scottish Psychopath used the steel steps to punish Orton next. McIntyre set up for the Claymore but Orton countered with a steel chair shot to the knee. The Apex Predator then forced the chair into McIntyre's previously injured jaw.
Orton controlled the match for the next several minutes, sadistically pressing McIntyre's jaw into the cell. He then tossed him into the steel steps and continued to beat down the WWE Champion around the steel structure.
Both men brawled back and forth for the next few minutes. Eventually, McIntyre hit a Belly To Belly Suplex on Orton through a table. Orton fought back with his Draping DDT but McIntyre kicked out at one. Randy grabbed a pair of bolt cutters from under the ring and broke the padlock, unlocking the door.
Both men then brawled outside of the cell and Orton climbed to the top of the steel structure. McIntyre pursued him moments later.
Orton and McIntyre stared each other down but The Viper retrieved a steel pipe. He tried to hit McIntyre but The Scottish Psychopath took the challenger down and laid in some vicious strikes. Orton took Drew down with a strike to the leg moments later, though, and The Viper tried to climb down the side of the cell. The WWE Champion was in pursuit soon after and following a brief brawl, McIntyre was sent crashing from the side of the structure through the announcer's table below.
McIntyre could be heard wretching and coughing up blood while Orton dragged him into the ring. The Viper stalked his prey once the action re-entered the squared circle but McIntyre countered into a Backslide. Orton kicked out this time, however, and the champion followed up with a Claymore moments later. He couldn't capitalise because of his injuries and Orton rolled to the outside.
The Scottish Psychopath managed to drag Randy back into the ring and set up for another Claymore. Orton ducked and hit an RKO for the 1-2-3.
With that, we have a new WWE Champion.
