Negatives From WWE Hell In A Cell 2017

"I think from top to bottom there were great matches, and they were all a little bit different from start to finish".

Bobby Roode versus Dolph Ziggler has been confirmed for next week's episode of WWE Smackdown Live.

WWE Smackdown Commissioner Shane McMahon, 47, has shown no fear in recent years, putting his life and body on the line for what is called "sports entertainment".

After weeks of Jinder Mahal's controversial comments about Shinsuke Nakamura and his appearance, "The Artist" would get the opportunity to shut the mouth of "The Modern Day Maharaja" at WWE Hell in a Cell as, in a rematch from SummerSlam, Jinder Mahal would defend the WWE Championship against Shinsuke Nakamura.

Tonight's WWE SmackDown opened with new SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos giving props to The New Day for their brutal Cell match at Sunday's WWE Hell In a Cell pay-per-view. Going into the show, it seemed like it was doomed to fail with nearly half of the card being filler matches.

Smackdown's best tag teams were on the verge of burying the hatchet, when the rest of the tag team division decided to make their voices heard as they wanted a shot at the tag team gold.

Facing not only the Ascension but also the Hype Bros and Breezango, Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin turned the action up to 11 and romped away with a victory after they double-teamed Tyler Breeze into the three-count. Can Natalya re-enforce her claim of being "the best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be" or will Charlotte Flair add another championship to her family's legacy by winning the SmackDown Women's Title?

Randy Orton def. Rusev by pin following the RKO. The match went about how you would expect it to as the superstar pair dispatched Rusev and English. Nakamura was defeated cleanly in the middle of the ring by the reigning champion and it is clear he isn't clicking with the WWE Universe the way he did with Full Sail's intimate crowd. Roode was there to challenge Ziggler about the cheap shot he laid on Roode after losing Sunday. This rivalry seems to be in its early stages and will be one to keep an eye on as Bobby Roode's star continues to rise on SmackDown Live.

After weeks of tension and feuding, Baron Corbin finally triumphed over AJ Styles and Tye Dillinger to secure the United States Championship at Hell In A Cell.

The Lone Wolf feasted on his prey, pulling Styles back into the ring and hitting End of Days to retain his title. Perhaps he and Dillinger renew the budding rivalry that they had going into Hell in a Cell.

WWE SmackDown Live can be seen Tuesdays at 8/7c on USA Network.
