During the last WWE PPV that aired on Sunday, Randy Orton and Drew McIntyre challenged each other once again with the WWE Championship up for grabs, in a match within the famous Hell in a Cell, in which the two athletes really gave the maximum, before one of the two managed to overcome the other.
Obviously, the following news contains the spoiler of the match-winner in the homonymous PPV, so if you do not want to have any nasty surprises, you are invited not to continue your reading. As we said, in the closing match of the PPV which took its name from the infernal contest in the red cage, Randy Orton managed to get the better of the reigning champion, Drew McIntyre, after having knocked him out with a resounding RKO in the center of the ring, with the WWE Viper who thus won her fourteenth world title since working in the McMahon rings in the early 2000s.
Why Drew McIntyre took bump off Hell in a Cell
During the main event of the PPV aired that on 25th October by WWE, at one point the reigning champion had flown from half-height of the cage on the comment table that had been positioned right at the foot of the Hell in a cell, with a frightening flight of several meters that smashed the table with the weight of the Scot.
But why was this particular angle staged in the WWE Championship title match? Whose idea was it to include this angle in the titled match? To answer these questions, as always, the Wrestling Observer thought about it through its radio show, with Dave Meltzer who in fact revealed: "When Drew Galloway was a kid he saw that match with Shawn Michaels and The Undertaker - the first Hell in a Cell match - and this bump was just what was put into that match, so there was a part of him that wanted to take, so WWE obliged him."
In practice, according to the well-known Observer journalist, to want to receive the bump from the cage on the commentators' table, it would have been the former WWE Champion, with one of McIntyre's wrestler dreams that was precisely to fly on the table as he did.
HBK several years earlier, with WWE not thinking twice and immediately preparing the segment, which went on stage in the best way. Drew McIntyre isn’t the WWE Champion anymore, but he’s still on top of the roster.
We’ll have to see what’s next for McIntyre, but WWE is likely already making even bigger plans for WrestleMania.
