5 questions from WWE Hell in a Cell 2017 that most need answering
Some questions from a fairly decent night of wrestling.
Hell in a Cell 2017 was a fairly impressive PPV by the WWE's recent standards. It wasn't perfect by any means, but two matches in particular really delivered and helped the event stand out as more than just a filler show.
Kevin Owens and Shane McMahon closed things out brilliantly with one of the best Cell matches in a long time, complete with an added twist and heel turn while the Usos and the New Day continued their excellent programme with a hard-hitting affair.
As ever, there was plenty to dissect when all the action was over. Here are 5 questions from Hell in a Cell 2017 that most need answering:
#1 Is this the feud of the year?
It's surprising to think that just a few months ago we were all speculating as to how the Smackdown Live tag-team division could go on with such a weak looking roster. After the split between American Alpha, in particular, things looked really quite bleak.
The arrival of the New Day onto the Tuesday night platform has changed all of this. RAW might still have the more exciting teams and a deeper roster, but the feud between New Day and the Usos has been nothing short of exceptional.
Here is a feud that exemplifies what can happen when a little effort is put into the promos/build up. Not only have we had entertaining mic segments, backstage skits and a rap battle, but the five of them have also treated us to great matches along the way.
At Hell in a Cell 2017, the show was kicked off in style with a great bout that saw both teams go the extra mile to please those in attendance. While it's still unsure whether tag matches really work in this kind of environment, the superstars used the cage sufficiently which made the whole thing more than just a wrestling match.
With Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin waiting in the wings, we might be seeing a brief move away from this programme, but hopefully, the five will meet again and continue to show us what they're capable of.
