WWE Raw: The Hell in a Cell Go-Home Show
October 21, 2014 5:13 AM - Season 23, Episode 7 - Subscribe

Cena v. Orton becomes a #1 contender match. Rusev tries desperately to ignite his feud with the Big Show. AJ and Paige try to inject some drama into their fourth straight PPV match.

And Seth Rollins continues to be the most evillest evildoer what ever done some evil by Curb Stomping his fellow Authoritarian Randy Orton. They're broadcasting an Apex Face Turn pretty hard here -- will it be enough to put him over and set up a Survivor Series Viper-Beast title matchup?

I may not have been paying enough attention to RAW, is Cena pulling double duty at SS, not getting his title shot at SS, or not actually on the team he picks?

The middle one. Lesnar won't defend the title at Survivor Series. Probably not until the Rumble.

Oh man, I was so totally into the end of RAW if it had stopped with Randy on top and just walking up the ramp leaving the Authority all over the ring. My mind was already watching the hilarious next three weeks as HHH tries desperately to contain Orton and convince him to be part of the team, and convince the team to accept him. I was already looking forward to a SS match which was awesome to watch because it was mostly watching Team Authority fight among itself while team Cena sort of watches in disbelief (probably including a pretty solid Ziggler v 5 opening till he's eliminated, followed by Orton laying out most of team Authority resulting in their eliminations, followed by Orton taking out 3 members of Team Cena before going 1v1 with Cena).

But then, all that goes away. Oh well.

And maybe I'm seeing entirely too much while there was nothing there, but did anyone else feel like that entire finale got messed up when Orton started to bleed? I guess they were in one of those cities where you have to stop on blood and get treated (at least that's what I gathered from the Cesaro match). But then Orton was bleeding a little, and it actually seemed like the announcers were going out of their way to not point it out, and I was trying to figure out if HHH and Steph were trying to decide if they could finish the bit (get to the curb stomp), or if they had to just stop. Obviously, stopping to get Orton treated then finishing the bit would have been silly, so it seemed like they were just deciding if they could leave Orton bleeding and if that would be as good a finish as the curb stomp. I need to rewatch, like I said, maybe none of that was there and it was just my brain, still more interested in my own storyline than the one that was playing out.
