Genuinely uncomfortable. It's way, way too high.

Agreed. Wincing everytime more than one of them is on the same roof panel.

I was just thinking... is the cell higher nowadays? It feels higher but why would they make it bigger than before?

That spot there was too obvious - no monitors in either of the tables.

This is actually not very good right now. Far too much time has been wasted messing about.


Yeah, it's way higher. Looks at least 5 foot taller to me. They made it shorter at one point too, which just looked stupid.

Unless, of course, Randy Orton is 12ft tall.

Edge said he considered coming off the top in one match, but decided against it on the day of the show. Don't blame him.

Pretty sure it's the third or fourth year at that height - definitely wincing along with everyone else when they stomp/slam around on the roof.

Did anyone see if American soldiers were shown at ringside?

Sadly I didn't see them, and I can't find a reference to them in any reports that normally mentioned when they're shown :cry:

Really? I haven't seen it so can't say but from the description I've read it sounds ace up until the ending.

It's really stunted and Ambrose ruined the high spot.

The original cell was 16 ft tall and was replaced in 2006 by an "amplified" version which is 20 ft tall and 3 tons heavier and sturdier. The original cell was a little too low to do top rope spots comfortably, which is one reason they made it bigger.

Me and Banjo tried to watch this last night, and failed miserably. He KOed at the start of the Orton/Cena match and I went down just before the main event.

In my defence it was a self-afflicted KO because like hell was I watching Cena/Orton.

That was a horribly contrived looking fall through the announce tables. It was bad enough they showed everyone moving everything out of the way, but then the camera panned down to reveal they'd also removed all the monitors.

WWE are really bad at foreshadowing things these days. You go back and watch stuff from the past & there aren't anywhere near as many clues as to what's coming next. Far too easy to get taken out of the moment. Like watching a film but having just seen the big stunt be set up by stage-hands moments earlier.

I think it's more about safety these days?Also Randy Orton hurt his back on a monitor doing an RKO on a table once so he probably has something to do with it!

So they send Dolph on a losing streak, then have him beat Cesaro in 2 straight falls.

Okay.

Must be time for him and Sheamus to swap enemies again.
