HIAC had some stellar moments!

On Sunday, October 30th, WWE presented their annual Hell in a Cell event. This year's event was different from those presented in the past, as it marked the first time it was a brand exclusive event, belonging as it did to the Raw brand.

It had a highly publicised a triple main event, with each one being for a championship. The event also included a number of other matches that were either grudge matches, and some saw feuds finally come to an end.

What exactly would happen when the New Day defended the WWE tag team titles against the unlikely team of Cesaro and Sheamus? Meanwhile, it was interesting to see the tandem of Gallows and Anderson not in the hunt for the tag team championship despite being heavy contenders earlier in the year.

And did Bayley get the better of Dana Brooke? Here are the five best moments of Hell in a Cell 2016.

#5 The Cruiserweight Six Man Tag Match

One can’t simply ignore the high-flying cruiserweights 

When recounting the night's events, one can't ignore the preshow, which featured cruiserweights Cedric Alexander, Lince Dorado, Sin Cara, Drew Gulak, Tony Nese and Daivari. What we can be assured from a cruiserweight match, is countless pin attempts and athletic moves that allow each man to get in their unique, spectacular offence.

It is still strange to see Sin Cara involved in the division, but he was a welcome addition to this match up. Fans of Nese, Gulak and Alexander, have come to appreciate having them as a part of the WWE, and they managed to show their best, despite the time restraints.

Pre-show matches never get lots of time, so performers capable of big spots are well suited for it.

If there were a moment that stood out during the match, it would have to be Tony Nese's counter of Lince Dorado, slinging him onto his team mates that were on the floor. And one of the best visuals of the evening would have to be Dorado, Cara and Alexander, catapulting through the ropes onto their opposition in a trifecta of suicide dives.
