WWE Hell in a Cell: The 11 Best Moments of the Night

0 of 11

    WWE's Hell in a Cell pay-per-view this Sunday was very exciting and in the end, it was the two Superstars that are no longer a part of the company that stole the show.

    Over the course of the night, two championships changed hands and the last five minutes of the show were absolutely insane.

    Here are the 11 best moments of the night.

The Miz and R-Truth Are Kicked Out of Their Seats

1 of 11

    Before Sheamus and Christian could get their match started, the Miz and R-Truth showed up and sat down in some seats near ringside holding up their tickets to the event.

    They weren't seated for long though, as Johnny Lauaranitis came down and had a team of security force them to depart.

    I must say that I was very surprised to see them so early in the night.

Sheamus d. Christian

2 of 11

    The first match of the night started shortly thereafter between Sheamus and Christian. 

    It was a good match where Christian hit two Spears but still couldn't get the pin on Sheamus. Sheamus then hit a Brogue Kick and finished off Christian for the victory.

    This should solidify Sheamus as the number one contender for the World Heavyweight Championship once the rivalry between Mark Henry and Randy Orton concludeswhenever that may be.

Sin Cara d. Sin Cara

3 of 11

    As our glorious announcers called them during their match, tonight we saw Sin Cara "Azul" face off against Sin Cara "Negro" or the blue Sin Cara and the black Sin Cara.

    The match between them started off slowly but before long, they both started showing off their athletic ability and were both pretty exciting.

    In the end, the original Sin Cara came out victorious and now the black Sin Cara will have to come out with a new name for himself. 

    Perhaps Hunico?

AirBoom Retains

4 of 11

    The Tag Team Champions, Kofi Kingston and Evan Bourne, won yet another match on Sunday, this time against Dolph Ziggler and Jack Swagger. 

    It was a very good match, and the team of Ziggler and Swagger were actually very good when they worked together, but there is a reason why AirBoom holds the Tag Team Championship.

    Kofi and Evan retained their title, and Vickie Herrero's screams were heard throughout New Orleans.

Mark Henry Hurls the Stairs at Randy Orton

5 of 11

    The Hell in a Cell cage fell next, and the World Heavyweight Championship match between Mark Henry and Randy Orton began. 

    The match, as a whole, was pretty brutal but the moment in the match which I thought was awesome was when Mark Henry didn't throw, but hurled the steel steps at Randy Orton. If Orton hadn't moved out of the way of those steps, he actually would have been badly hurt. 

    How hard he threw those steps caught me way off guard, and I would say that it was definitely deserving of one of the night's top moments.

Henry Kicks Out of RKO, Retains

6 of 11

    After more domination by Henry, Orton did manage to get in a late surge where he was able to hit a suspended DDT and then an RKO, which Henry managed to kick out of.

    Henry then countered Orton's attempt at the head punt and nailed a World's Strongest Slam to get the pin and retain his Championship.

    The real theatrics started after the match when Henry tried to break Orton's leg like he did with Kane and Big Show but Orton was able to roll away. The two then proceeded to have a fight with chairs and in the end, Henry ended up retreating backstage.

    This ending leads me to believe that this is not the end of the rivalry between these two, as Orton will try to win back the World Heavyweight Championship yet again.

Cody Rhodes Retains

7 of 11

    Cody Rhodes came out to do a promo after the World Heavyweight Championship match and he introduced a new Intercontinental Championship belt which looked just like the classic one.

    As he continued on his rant, John Lauranitis came out and said that Triple H had made a match for him at the very moment against John Morrison.

    Rhodes ended up fighting in his suit and after a good match, he won with a roll-up on Morrison to retain his title. I'm guessing this will cause Rhodes to have more of a reason to want to be a part of the coup against Triple H, as he was thrown into a title match with no prior knowledge and was forced to fight in street clothes.

Miz and Truth Beat Up AirBoom

8 of 11

    We then got to see a backstage segment with Triple H being pissed with Lauranitis as usual, but then we find out that Miz and Truth had gotten into the locker room and beat up Kofi and Bourne.

    They were then forced out of the locker room after Triple H got even more furious.  This begs the questions, why were Miz and Truth still allowed into the building and how did they get past security and get into the locker room?

Beth Phoenix Becomes Divas Champion in Dirty Fashion

9 of 11

    I have to say that this match went exactly as I predicted.

    The WWE couldn't hurt the integrity of their new golden girl so they had Beth Phoenix win dirty after Natalya nailed Kelly Kelly on the head with the microphone. Phoenix then hit the defenseless Kelly with a Glam Slam and that was all she wrote.

    This feud is far from over now that the Divas of Doom have played dirty and it will only be a matter of time before Phoenix is crying from losing the title to Kelly yet again.

Cena Gets Locked Out, Del Rio Wins WWE Championship

10 of 11

    The WWE Championship match was full of craziness and after ten minutes of the match, CM Punk had a couple of big cuts on his back and was definitely bleeding.

    We saw an Attitude Adjustment, a GTS and an attempted Cross Arm breaker but none of them finished off the job for our three competitors. When things finally started looking bad from Alberto Del Rio, Ricardo Rodriguez knocked out the referee, stole the keys to the cage and opened up the door. Cena didn't let him interfere and got him out of the cage but Del Rio seized the opportunity to knock out Cena with a pipe and lock him outside the cage.

    Del Rio was left alone in a one on one match against Punk when Cena couldn't get back inside. Using the pipe once again, Del Rio took down Punk and won back the WWE Championship.

    But that wasn't the end of the night...

Miz and Truth Destroy, Triple H Loses It

11 of 11

    As the cage began to raise, two hooded figures enter the ring and started to beat down everyone in sight. Of course, these two guys ended up being the Miz and R-Truth.

    The cage came back down locking themselves, Cena, Punk, Del Rio and two referees inside the Cell and Miz and Truth went to town. They left everyone crippled in the ring but the real commotion started when Triple H and Lauranitis came down to ringside and tried to get into the cage. When they couldn't, they proceeded to bring the entire locker room out to help.

    Finally the chain was cut and Miz and Truth were handcuffed and taken out but that's when Triple H lost it. He went absolutely nuts on the former Superstars and had to be held back by three guards for the rest of the show.

    These final theatrics raise even more questions. How did Miz and Truth escape the clutches of security yet again? What was Johnny Ace's role in all of this? Is Triple H becoming unstable?

    I don't know the answers but I know this storyline is getting me excited and I can't wait to see what happens on Monday at RAW. I hope Miz and Truth make an appearance.
