Charlotte, Owens survive Hell in a Cell
Through hell or high water, The Kevin Owens Show is still on.
The Prizefighter successfully defended his WWE Universal Championship over Seth Rollins inside Hell in a Cell Sunday (MondayManila time) in Boston.
Owens hit Rollins with a DDT on a steel chair and followed it up with a Pop-Up Powerbomb on two more chairs as he retained his belt.
The brash Canadian fought back from a freak fall after Rollins Powerbombed him through two tables on the side of the ring, as Chris Jericho interjected himself and entered the cell to help Owens score the victory.
But the biggest spotlight of the night was placed on the ladies, as Charlotte Flair became a three-time Raw Women’s Champion after pinning Sasha Banks in the first ever women’s Hell in a Cell match to close the show.
Flair took advantage of Banks’ bad back, nailing her with the Natural Selection to snare the title.
Roman Reigns retained his WWE United States Championship over Rusev in the third Hell in a Cell match of the night.
The Big Dog fought his way out of The Accolade and nailed the Bulgarian Brute with a Samoan Drop on the steel steps. He then followed it up with a thunderous Spear for the three-count.
Cesaro and Sheamus also beat The New Day, but failed to win the Raw Tag Team Championship due to disqualification.
Cesaro already had Xavier Woods in the ring with a Sharp Shooter, while Sheamus fended off Big E on the outside and hit him with a trombone. Referee John Cone, though, saw Kofi Kingston nail Sheamus with a Trouble in Paradise just as Woods was tapping on Cesaro’s submission hold.
Brian Kendrick also became the new WWE Cruiserweight Champion, submitting TJ Perkins with the Captain’s Hook.
Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows beat Enzo Amore and Big Cass with the Magic Killer.
Bayley also pinned Dana Brooke after nailing the Bayley to Belly.
In the pre-show, the team of Cedric Alexander, Lince Dorado, and Sin Cara beat the trio of Drew Gulak, Tony Nese, and Ariya Daivari after Alexander hit a Lumbar Check on Nese./rga
