WWE official explains why he stopped the Hell in a Cell Universal Title Match: WWE’s The Bump
ArticlesBlog


A big thing people are looking at is the
referee, and why the referee called what he did call, and I know-
>>What he didn’t call.>>Or what he didn’t call, and so I know
right now they’re telling us they have a quote that they want us to look
at from the referee of that match. So here you go with Bray motionless, and
Seth clearly doing whatever it was going to take to win that match, I had to
think of the competitor’s safety, and at that moment,
I did what I thought was best.>>I think I’m probably
in the minority here, but I think the referee did exactly
what he had to do in that moment. He has that shield on his chest,
which has been ironed on, the WWE logo, if he’s looking at this match in its
entirety, in this moment, there’s a man down on the ground incapacitated,
what are you supposed to do? People argue, well at King of
the Ring when Mankind got thrown off the top of the Undertaker,
the match continued. That was a long time ago. This is 2019, if you see someone down
I think it’s fair to be like, nope, let’s check this out, and see what else
we can do, because this guy is down for the count.>>Dan, it’s a Hell in a Cell match. The referee rang for
the bell in a Hell in a Cell match. It’s pretty rudimentary stuff. That’s not how you do it. It’s all on the ref. Not debatable. I know it’s a fun show, but it kind of
irks me, if I’m being quite honest.>>I mean, I don’t, I’m not happy with the
call that was made, but I think it, he->>[CROSSTALK]>>Be nice, be nice.>>Sorry Matt.>>Matt Camp was actually in the room for
watch along on Sunday, and you you were a part of this-
>>Yes, this was something.>>Yeah, this was.>>Let’s look at this.>>[CROSSTALK]
>>All right.>>He’s still the champ.>>You may not ask me back for
another one of these, but how the hell do you get
DQ’d in a freaking cell?>>I don’t know if he got DQ’d.>>Well, they’re raising the cell now, so.>>The referee may just called it. He can call stoppage, right?>>So here’s the deal, I’m in that room,
that clip has been everywhere, I’ve gotten a lot of tweets about it.>>Yeah, we were there.>>I have a somewhat of an officiating
background and I saw it right away, I said, that was a stoppage, okay? Thought it was a DQ,
it wasn’t, it was a stoppage. Now, that was the right call. Is it the call that I wanted to see,
that you at home wanted to see, that-
>>No.>>That the fans in
Sacramento wanted to see? No, it wasn’t. You wanted to see a pin fall,
or a submission, and something that was very
obvious in terms of a finish. We did not get that. I understand why people
are mad about that.>>I do too.>>At the same time, though,
in the 22 years of Hell in a Cell, including that one,
there has still been no DQs. It has not happened. There was no DQ there. Reacted as he did. I think he knows now what happened. It was not a DQ finish. The referee stopped the match,
because of whatever you want to say. He thought that Seth went too far,
and that ended of the match. Did Seth win? I don’t know.
Do you guys call that a victory?>>No, but yeah,
cuz it was very interesting. Like I said, be happy with the presence
you got throughout the night. Not that you didn’t get the big gift,
but think there is time. I know everyone’s upset, I know everyone’s disappointed, but
I think that by that happening, man, cuz a little bit of controversy is not
the worst thing that could happen to him.>>I think everyone is disappoionted. That’s not necessarily a bad thing. I mean, that’s the way it works in
professional wrestling, boxing, football, sports across the board. You’re not gonna always
get exactly what you want.

  1. At 02:50
    "Be happy the presents that you get".

    Everyone was waiting for that Main Event otherwise it was just a Raw show on a Sunday.

    Calling a stop to the match…
    The match would have stopped after the 3 count that might have come after that sledgehammer shot.

    Did HHH use sledgehammers in HiaC?

  2. That Dude that said it's 2019 now is a total softy, Hell In A Cell has no DQs and no stoppage, that's like calling a count out in a falls count anywhere match

  3. This was, all in all, a stupid way to end the match and ruin a good story. The whole thing is that if you wanted Seth to win, why push the Fiend only for him to be ruined? Both are worst for wear at this point. No one comes out looking good.

  4. In My Opinion, Yes Officials Are Damn Right Just Because It's Called Hell In A Cell The Most Destructive Cage And It's Been Promoted That Way, It Doesn't Mean We Can Kill Someone, Because In The End All These Comparators Are Human Beings

  5. So in kayfabe The Fiend is suposed to be this supernatural being, maybe even a killer and they tried to save him, that's bs. "It's 2019" what a great argument…

  6. The unfortunate truth is that this show is still trying to maintain kayfabe. It can't address what we're actually talking about: The match was just poorly booked.
    Also, the can call it what they want but it was a DQ in everything but name. I'd argue Sasha and Becky went to the same lengths for their match and kept going. What happened? They had the best match of the night! Of course, the one match truly worthy of the admission price and the Hell in a Cell stipulation, was the opener of the main card. All this, on top of the fact that 50% of the show was booked last minute, are the what actually pisses us off.

  7. That's BS WWE to ending to Hell in a Cell FFS just own up to your mistakes (acting like a lil kid making excuses!) Know what tell Mick Foley that after almost dying every time he stepped foot in HIAC personally I think you should cancel that PPV bring back Armageddon or Unforgiven please. Hell in a cell matches should be a bloody and violent with on rules what so ever & only used the way it meant to be as in heated rivalry that's only used as a last resort! & all other options have gone that what made Hell In A Cell such a special occasion.

  8. Didn’t Triple H hit Vince with a sledgehammer in the 2 On 3 handicap match when it was DX vs Vince/Shane and Big Show? Yea and there was no stoppage and that was also a Hell in a Cell Match, just saying.

  9. In the 22 history of the hell in the cell not one hell in a cell match as been stop and mankind vs the taker would of been stop to if they didn't let it go on

  10. Really Questionable ending, ruined the reputation of both men In that match.But i'll forgive Rod Zapata……. as long as he gets me a Nando's (It's a Will Ospreay reference for any casual fans down here in the comments section)

  11. If this is the case, then throw the whole match concept and PPV away. “It’s 2019…” Gargano and Cole threw themselves off a cage just a couple months ago, but the referee didn’t stop that match. 🤷🏾‍♂️

  12. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY GOD

    IM UNSUBSCRIBING RIGHT NOW!!!!!

  13. Not the first HIAC main event in Hell in the Cell that ended in a unfashionable way.

    2010 – A beam of light blinded the Undertaker from Paul Bearer's urn which gave the victory to Kane

    2014 – A hologram of Bray Wyatt cost Dean Ambrose the win against Seth Rollins

    2016 – The botch towards the end of Charlotte vs. Sasha that the table didn't break

    2018 – Brock's Double KO on Roman Reigns & Braun Strounman

    2019 – The ref called the match because Seth went "Too Far" on The Fiend

    "It's 2019." What a convincing retort…. NOT!!!!

  14. This is fake. Refs check the wrestlers fingers if they move then on touch or not to make sure they are ok and NOT just call for the bell.

  15. WWE should be ashamed of themselves wwe has never been the same since the rock stone cold and the whole attitude era… i been watching wwe for over 22 plus years and i can says this was trash it looked fake it pissed everyone off this is why you lose fans after the brock lesnar kofi kingston thing as if nobody can beat brock lesnar hes not even more dominate than goldberg was. AEW matches are better than this WWE get it together.

  16. There is a difference between stopping a match or ending a match , stopping the match is hitting the pause button, ringing the bell is ending a match. The referee rang the bell

  17. One report I'm not sure but think it was ring side sheets, has said Bray was knock out and did come out off the match injured. When the ref didn't get a response from Bray he called the match and that's why the cage was lifted fast and the emt was rushed in.

  18. Did they know that bray Wyatt the fiend was awake when they remove the ladder and the chair and the toolbox like what the crowd said HES OK

  19. Look WWE your forgetting one thing and that's how much brutal moments hell in a cell had and no DQ I mean a sledgehammer really WWE Seth Rollins can get DQ from that and DX can't if the people know the match from hell in a cell Cody Rhodes, Ted diabese Vs DX when triple h hit Ted's face with the sledgehammer and your saying that didn't count Smh go learn about your history WWE

  20. Safety huh???? Safety huh???? What about that match in Wcw where an actual HELL IN A CELL CALLED ELECTRIC CHAIR MATCH HUH SAFETY HUH WHERE YOU ALMOST KILLED ABDULLAH THE BUTCHER

  21. This? This is their idea of damage control? Hahaha, good grief. Just when you think they couldn't possibly get MORE out of touch.

  22. Wait that was a long time ago did he really just say that OK! Is their DQ in the Elimination Chamber is their DQ In WAR GAMES is their DQ in the Punjabi Prison NOPE! Evan in just a regular cage NOOO!!!

  23. Ok let’s say this when Shane McMahon jumped off Hell In A Cell twice in the matches with Undertaker and Kevin Owens and had a bad landing drove on his head that high their always was a bunch of REFS did they ever stop the match no it ended how it was supposed to end with pin fall or submission and those matches ended in pin fall so yeah the refs never stopped the match never DQ the match ITS HELL IN A CELL!!! You can’t stop The or DQ the match PERIOD!!!

  24. "This is 2019" or "competitors' safety" doesn't fly with me at all when HHH and Batista's No Holds Barred match this past WM was more violent than the HIAC main event.

  25. "This is 2019" or "competitors' safety" doesn't fly with me at all when HHH and Batista's No Holds Barred match this past WM was more violent than the HIAC main event.

  26. Every once in awhile Vince has to show how out of touch he is from the fan base. You know when RAW is at its peak? When Hunter and Paul Heyman are making the decisions

  27. 2019? Huh…I can make excuses too WWE. This doesn't help your arguement about a wrestlers safety if he's able to get up and give a mandible claw, 2 sister Abigails and another mandible claw…it boggles the mind

  28. Who is that sell out who is talking about 2019? So you became stupid in 2019? cheezzz. What a bunch of lies. This was Vinces decision, that's it.

  29. And this is scripted sports. So you can get what you want. But you fail to deliver. Watch Aew. They will never treat fans, like WWE. WWE treats us like morons.

  30. There was a time when wrestler used to have shiver down their spine when they where about to wrestle in matches like Hiac, Elimination chamber,steel cage etc and now a days they make for the first time ever for women's division makes me cringe Everytime.
    Don't mean to be rude but this types of matches should be very brutal instead of having mats to cover the steel in a chamber match.

  31. when bray wyatt attack seth then why they didnt stop……………..read this plz and answer…………read and answer……….

  32. Ahahahaa what a lame attempt to reconcile the stupid decision made by creative for the ending of that match. Absolutely cringeworthy.

  33. No matter what that idot says wwe / just jan 4 wcw finger poked of doomed us in the 2019 hell in a cell period . How the F__ do you get DQ in a ( ANYTHING) goes match !

  34. Who ever is booking matches and writing for wwe needs to have a wake up call. This is punishing fans away. Its a show a fake entertainment show we now but dont try to sell us BS and call it bread

  35. lol Sending these three clowns/stooges out on a show to try to smooth things over the fact that they made an asshat choice… This will sit even better with the WWE fans… NOT !

  36. Seriously, imagine Vince not being able to screw Bray over, Bray go to AEW, Vince has already shown he has no idea what hes doing and is willing to run the company into the ground.
