I’m very confident that it is just publicity for ROH and NJPW. Cody only signed permanently with ROH yesterday.

I see they've now added an LED board behind the announcers. Is there anywhere now left to light up? The barricades?!

Are all the matches at hell in a cell going to be in the cell or something? Sounds almost that way.

This is what happens when you stupidly name the show the same as the match type and the only differentiator is saying "at", "in" and "inside". I think there's only 2 (Shane/Owens and the tag team championship) looking at the graphics they throw up on screen.

WWE has bigger problems to worry about though, as they'll be filming SD from Full Sail University at this rate...

There was even sporadic empty seats opposite the camera which were visible on TV.

I'm not suprised. I watched last night as I really couldn't sleep (probably because the TV was on) and it sounded so hollow in the arena. You could tell that it was half empty.

I think the fact Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn are in there is quite telling. You're never going to gain fans outside of hardcore wrestling fans by pushing them, Owens especially, that's just the reality. Not under a PG era anyway.

I think it's more that they have an actual jobber as their main Champion. If they put the belt in Owens they'd have a few more seats filled than that.

Jinder doesn't help! Neither does Corbin. WWE have pretty much knocked down the house AJ built.

Did Kevin Owens shout something he shouldn't at Shane McMahon last night? Watched the YT international edit and he shouts "Mother..." and then the audio cuts out and there's an abrupt jump cut.

The good news is if he did not many people would have heard it! I watched the show live last night but didn't make it that far (I normally watch it all, albeit at the weekend on demand) because the main event was Kevin Owens vs Sami Zayn... the new-school Orton vs Cena.

Ouch, seeing empty arenas like that is painful. Awkward, even.

So Mahal vs Nakamura at Hell in a Cell isn't going to be a Hell in a Cell match despite every match they've had so far resulting in interference from the Singh Brothers.

What? :lol:

EDIT: I wonder who is going to win that match

It's ok though the Usos are in a HIAC match just like everyone wanted.

The last time WWE did India everyone on the roster hated it and a number of them got sick.

I'm guessing John Cena vanquishing the evil Mahal is still on the agenda at some point.

I see they're now dressing up Enzo Amore as Jimmy Saville.

Roof would have come off if Angle had announced Rey Mysterio instead of...Kalisto.
