WWE Had Considered An Alternate Ending For Hell In A Cell Main Event

WWE reportedly had considered an alternative ending for the main event at this past Sunday's Hell in a Cell pay-per-view.

The main event of WWE’s recent Hell in a Cell ended in controversy after the official stopped the match. He did so out of concern for ‘The Fiend’ Bray Wyatt after Seth Rollins’ relentless assault. The response was overtly negative, with fans in the crowd chanting “AEW” and “Refunds.” Now Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com is reporting that there was another ending WWE considered.

“The original idea for the finish was that Wyatt would take a gimmicked bump off the top of the cage and be unable to continue and the match would be stopped,” Meltzer said.” Then, after it was stopped, he would pop up like Undertaker and take Rollins out with the mandible claw.”

The match was ended via referee stoppage after Seth Rollins piled ‘The Fiend’ under a ladder, chairs and even a toolbox. However, it was the introduction of a sledgehammer into the action that the official thought went too far.

Seth Rollins recently broke his silence since Sunday, writing on Twitter:

“Survive and Prevail is bigger than just what happens between the ropes. Question everything, even yourself, and fight your heart out every step of the way. #sethrollinsisnotcool”

He will compete against Roman Reigns this Friday night on SmackDown. The winner of their match will win the first draft pick for their brand.
