Posted October 14th, 2014 by jshannon

A major change to Hell in a Cell came by way of moving one of the matches from the PPV to tonight.

The show opened with Dean Ambrose and John Cena coming out to push their upcoming Contract on a Pole Match at Hell in a Cell. The winner of that match gets Seth Rollins inside the cage. It was a typical Roostering to prove male dominance. They were cut off by the arrival of HHH and Stephanie. They decided to put John and Dean together in a tag team match. HHH and Stephanie set up a bet and then set up The Uso vs Cosmic Twins vs Dean and John.

The music hit and out came Gold and Star Dust.
