WWE Raw Live Results, Reaction, Analysis and Hell in a Cell Fallout
We are less than a day removed from Hell in a Cell and the reactions to the event have been mixed to say the least.
Every title ended up being defended last night and several of the matches stood out as entertaining, but the main event is the match most people will be talking about.
Ref Brad Maddox once again came into play as he stopped Ryback from winning the match by delivering a low blow which allowed Punk to roll Ryback up for a fast count.
Ryback got his revenge after the match, but the monster will likely be looking for a rematch tonight.
We also have the angle with John Cena being confronted by Vickie Guerrero with "evidence" that he had an affair with AJ Lee.
Big Show is the new World champion following his win over Sheamus and Dolph Ziggler still has his MITB case. Could we see a cash in tonight?
The fallout from Hell in a Cell is sure to be intriguing so make sure to bookmark this page and come back tonight when Raw goes live for up-to-the-minute coverage of all the action.

That was a decent show. There were a couple good matches but a few of the segments fell a little flat for me.
AJ being a wrestler again should help the Divas division keep improving but Beth being fired that way was just stupid. She should have had a better exit angle.
Before I go I want to wish everyone in the path of Hurricane Sandy luck in weathering the storm. My own Father lives in Connecticut very close to the ocean so I am hoping for everyone's safety.
