WWE Hell In A Cell PPV Results (10/26/2014) – Dallas, Texas
WWE Hell In A Cell “Kickoff Show”
The Kickoff Show opens with the panel, hosted by Renee Young and featuring Booker T, Paul Heyman and Alex Riley, breaking down the two co-main events.
They continue to break down many of tonight’s matches, giving their insight and predictions along the way.
Mizdow TV with Damien Sandow, The Miz & Sheamus
The panel kicks it to the pay-per-view announce team of Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler and JBL. From there, The Miz’s theme hits and out comes he and Damien Sandow, decked out in the same outfit. It’s time for the debut of “Mizdow TV.”
Both guys take a seat in the ring and Sandow welcomes everyone to the “second most must-see” segment in history. Miz interrupts Sandow. While Miz talks, Sandow mimmicks him and mouths the same words Miz is saying while he’s saying them. Mimmicking his physical actions and movements as well. Sandow is awesome.
Sandow asks everyone to stand to show respect for the first ever guest in Mizdow TV history. After a lengthy introduction, Sandow introduces his guest — The Miz.
“Where to begin, where to begin,” says Sandow, but before he can continue, Miz takes over. As he talks, Sandow is mimmicking his actions and mouthing his words right next to him. Pretty funny stuff, as long as it doesn’t go on for too long.
Sandow defies Miz briefly, talking about how everyone knows he technically beat Sheamus on RAW. As Miz looks at him with disapproval, Sandow quickly back-tracks and gives Miz credit for the victory, for giving him inspiration, etc. and says it’s technically Miz who won over Sheamus on RAW. Sandow kisses Miz’s butt some more, running down his accolades such as headlining WrestleMania, doing movies, etc.
Sandow tells Miz, from the bottom of his heart, that he’s the best friend he’s ever had. Sandow gets choked up while saying that. Miz says he appreciates those words ans tells Sandow he’s a damn good stunt double, one that he’s truly proud to call his friend. The two hug and are interrupted by Sheamus on the big screen.
Sheamus tells Miz if Sandow is as good of a friend as he claims, he should tell him to get on his knees and kiss his ass goodbye, because while he has his own movie, what he won’t have tonight is the WWE United States Championship. Sheamus throws a Brogue Kick at the camera and knocks the feed out. His music hits as Miz throws a fit in the ring, with Sandow, of cuorse, mimmicking his actions.
The Expert Panel Breaks Down More Matches
After the Mizdow TV segment, we return back to the Kickoff Show expert panel. The foursome continue to break down a bunch of tonight’s matches, giving their insight and predictions along the way.
This “Kickoff Show” is too long. Other than a 5-10 minute Mizdow TV segment, it’s literally been 40 minutes of a panel just talking about matches. They should keep these to a half an hour or put two matches/segments on them to help burn time off of the clock. Anyways, not much to update, just more panel talk about matches and clips from RAW and SmackDown highlighting the feuds heading into tonight.
With 12 minutes left, I’m forced to eat my words. The panel kicks it back to the commentary team. Mark Henry’s theme hits and apparently we do have a match on the pre-show.
Mark Henry vs. Bo Dallas
Henry makes his way to the ring as the announcers talk about his involvement in the Rusev/Big Show feud. From there, his opponent is introduced — Bo Dallas. The announcers mention that Dallas has beaten Henry four times. Dallas says the same on the mic, cutting a promo as he heads to the ring. Dallas says his four wins over Henry makes him the new “World’s Strongest Man.”
Dallas talks about how he’s ashammed his last name is the same as the city we’re in tonight. He says because of that, he’s going to change his last name for one night only to “Bo Washington.” I’m assuming that’s because the DALLAS Cowboys have a rivalry with the WASHINGTON Redskins? Cheap heat.
The bell rings and here we go. Henry manhandles Dallas, I mean, Washington, straight from the word go. He hits a World’s Strongest Slam within about a minute and gets an easy and quick 1-2-3.
Winner: Mark Henry
Backstage: Paige & Alicia Fox
Backstage, Byron Saxton is with Paige and Alicia Fox. He asks for her thoughts on tonight’s match against AJ Lee. Paige says AJ ripped her heart out and “threw it in the bin.” Paige tells Fox she loves her and gives her a kiss. She says tonight she’s going to rip her heart out and steal her best friend — the Divas Championship. Paige and Fox walk off after screwing with Saxton a bit.
Wrapping Up The “Kickoff Show”
Renee Young and the expert panel do a final hard sell for fans to purchase the WWE Network to watch tonight’s Hell In A Cell pay-per-view, of course, for “only $9.99.” Renee introduces one final video package highlighting the brutality of the Hell In A Cell match.
