WWE: The United States Champion John Cena was defeated by Alberto Del Rio in his open challenge In The Hell In A Cell

This year's Hell in a Cell was an above-average pay-per-view, but much of the action seemed like a setup for Survivor Series.
As one of the "big four" WWE pay-per-views, Survivor Series has enjoyed a long and storied history, but recent years have seen focus shift toward events such as the Royal Rumble and SummerSlam. That might be about to change.
With a huge world title match and an appearance by The Undertaker already set for November 22, it seems WWE wants to revitalize the annual event. These are the results from last weekend that are sure to have an impact come next month.

Fight between Brock Lesnar and the Undertaker

An unusually violent Hell in a Cell match saw The Beast Incarnate vanquish The Undertaker in what's being billed as their final encounter. However, it was what happened after the bell that left fans looking to the future.
Bray Wyatt and his stable of hirsute henchmen hit the ring to beat down the Deadman, carrying him out of the arena to close the show. As of the time of writing, it's still unclear what's going on—but it's clearly something interesting.
The scenario could play out in two ways: Either Undertaker is set to act as some form of mentor or manager to Wyatt, or he's about to helm a team to take on the Wyatt Family in a traditional Survivor Series elimination match.
Given that the Phenom celebrates his 25th anniversary at Survivor Series, it's clear that he's going to play some part in the PPV.
However, it's not just the Wyatt Family follow-up that gives this match a direct link to next month's show. Following his defeat by Lesnar, we're looking at a different Undertaker. We now know conclusively that he's not quite the same competitor that we've seen in the past.
But what does that mean, exactly? We'll have to wait for the Survivor Series to find out.


The women of WWE are in a time of transition at the moment, but hopefully Nikki Bella's defeat on Sunday is evidence that it's coming to an end.
At present, the so-called Divas Revolution has pitted the best of NXT against established Divas by way of the Team PCB vs. Team Bella rivalry. Oh, and Team B.A.D. has turned up from time to time.
That's fine as a method of introducing new wrestlers, but it's not exactly a "revolution." Now that Nikki is out of the title picture, we hope the division will focus on top-tier in-ring performers rather than overwrought plotting and the continuing success of Total Divas.
There are many reasons why the NXT women's division is better than the Divas of the main roster, but a big part of it is the wrestling itself. The most talked-about matches to come from those women were great because they had a terrific payoff between the ropes.
Nikki has come a long way recently, but her skill still seems lacking when compared to that of Bayley, Charlotte and Sasha Banks. That's no criticism, as she's surrounded by tough competition.
It seems that Paige will be the next to challenge Charlotte, and for the first time we'll see two NXT graduates battle for the Divas Championship. There's a lot of pressure for the feud to deliver—but high stakes can produce the best performances.

The fight between Roman reigns and Bray Wyatt

This bout is sure to have a huge impact on Survivor Series—and it may well have an impact on the next decade for WWE.
There's little doubt that Roman Reigns is next in line to the throne that John Cena is in the process of vacating. The only question is when; it didn't happen at this year's WrestleMania, but it could come to fruition at Survivor Series.
With Seth Rollins six months into his reign as WWE world heavyweight champion, it would seem that a pre-WrestleMania title change would come sooner rather than later. Following his match with Wyatt, there was little doubt that Reigns looked like a championship contender.
The following night on Raw, we saw Reigns win a qualifier and a four-man main event to be named the No. 1 contender, as he's set to challenge Rollins at Survivor Series.
However, Hell in a Cell had already laid the groundwork for Reigns' ascent. The rivalry with Wyatt was Reigns' most well-developed and lengthy singles feud yet, so seeing him come out on top makes a big statement for the juggernaut.
Wyatt's involvement with The Undertaker suggests that he's on his way to bigger things, too—but Reigns getting the win demonstrates that he's on his way to the top. Will Reigns be world champion by the end of November? Based on his Hell in a Cell win, it seems to be the likeliest outcome.
