Jim Ross reveals his thoughts on the controversial Hell In A Cell finish

Jim Ross

The tenth edition of WWE Hell In A Cell delivered as per expectations with brutality and violence, but the event’s finish left several frustrated as the Universal Title match ended up being a chaos fest by the end.

The champion Roman Reigns and the challenger Brawn Strowman were down and out inside the Satanic Structure when the Shield tussled with Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre on the outside. To top all of that, former Universal Champion made his return to make a statement and went on to lay down the competitors to finish the show.

WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross took to his podcast to voice his opinion behind the controversial finish while claiming that he would have taken a different route. Ross said:

“It confused me a little bit, which when you book a match like that – how would you book a match and not have a viable finish in mind? And I’m sorry, just for my taste and again with the benefit of hindsight, I didn’t foresee that that finish was what was needed. Just me, but I do know that the issue of the title is still open.

“There’s still a story there, and new players are at float, and who can trust who. There’s a lot of things that can be made of this scenario. There’s no honor among thieves, so that may stand big for McIntyre or some of these other dudes somewhere down the road, let’s remember that. It didn’t turn me off of the whole show is what I’m saying.”

    To those who are unaware… including J.R. The WWE exec’s made it clear that it was a “botched” finish. One of many “first time” things that the WWE has been trying to perpetuate for a very long while now… being the “prestige of first times”. I thought this was apparent. Anyway back to my point. Everyone needs to remember that the “first time” factor is still paramount for the WWE. Their still trying to break that wall of “WE DID IT FIRST.” Does anyone actually realize this? Or am I the only one?
