Hello everyone. This is probably the most excited I have ever been about sharing a review with you all. That is because it is a review of one of my dreams come true. Last night, I had the great pleasure of attending my first ever live WWE Pay Per View.
Not only is this the first WWE Pay Per View I have attended, but it is the first televised WWE Event. I have been to WWE house shows twice, and both of those were awesome. As amazing as those shows were, they were nowhere near the magnitude Hell in a Cell.
All of the biggest stars in WWE were in competition(of course). There was even a few old school all stars as well. What really made as unforgettable as it was is that this has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember.
My big brother got me hooked on WWE when I was just a kid. I cannot even remember how old I was, but I couldn't have been older than 4. He was(and still is) my biggest real-life idol. His passion for WWE is what made me know it was something special, and to this day, my love for it has only grown.
The two of us would watch together, play with the action figures, video games and even act out battles(and whole events) ourselves. Thankfully, my hubby shares my great passion(or obsession in my case) for the WWE, and together we share our love for it with our children.
So this was not only my dream of attending a WWE Pay Per View, but of doing so with my family, which made it even more special to me. It was a VERY long drive, especially on the way home when we did not make it back until about 4am, but it was totally worth every minute in the care. Although it was just one night, the memories will last forever.
So aside form all the sentimental attachment, I bet you are wondering how the event itself was, and if it was, in fact, as good as I am making out to be. Well, as much as I am talking it up, it was literally better than I've said.I am going to tell you ALL about it.
The doors were a little late opening, and the lines were insane, the inside of the arena was PACKED, and there was so much going on. The first stop was restrooms, but then it was st right to the merchandise booths. I knew that with all those people they would be packed and things would sell out quickly, and I was even more correct than I knew. It was a mob scene.
We actually left the first stand and went to another. By the time we got to the front, a lot of the sizes were not available, but that certainly did not stop me from getting us all a shirt, and I got the kids a John Cena Foam hand and a WWE Title belt.
While we were all already dressed in our WWE apparel(and me in my Divas Title), I had planned to change us into our new gear for the show. Unfortunately, it took so long that the pre-show had started, and we never did. After a quick stop of food and drinks, we headed to our seats.
The Pre-show match was Kofi Kingston vs Damien Sandow, where Sandow picked up the victory. I was still getting settled and unfortunately did not get any photos since the mach was almost over by the time we were seated.
The first match of the actual Pay Per View was the Triple Threat Tagteam Match for the Tag Titles. Goldust and Cody Rhodes(defending champs) vs The Usos vs Seth Rollings and Romain Reigns.
The champs entered in all their glory.
After that, The Miz(one of my favorites) came down to call out Bray Wyatt.
The crowed erupted when Kane(who was taken out by The Wyatt Family) unexpectedly returned to battle the Wyatts.
The evening came right back to a lighter note with the Mixed Tag Team match-up of Fandango and Summer Rea vs The Great Khali and Natalya. Fandango's entrance always inspired dancing throughout the crowd.
That match was followed by the Match-up between Dean Ambrose(defending champ) and Big E Langston for the United States Championship.
After that, the excitement went through the roof when the Cell began to lower.
Then, when CM Punk's music hit, it was deafening. I was definitely a contributor to the noise, he is my favorite. This was for his handicap match vs Ryback and Paul Heyman.
As amazing as this match was, the Pay Per View could have ended there and I would still have been more than satisfied, but it was far from over.
The next match was Los Matedores vs The Real Americans. The Entrance of Los Matadores is so fun, especially their "mascot" El Torrito.
The next match was one of the biggest of the night. Alberto Del Rio vs the returning(early form an injury) John Cena for the World Heavyweight Championship.
Then it was time for the Divas to battle it out when AJ Lee(my favorite Diva) defender her Diva's Championship against Brie Bella.
And last, but certainly not lest, the main event, Daniel Bryan vs Randy Orton for the vacant WWE Championship with Shawn Michaels as the special guest referee, inside Hell in a Cell.
Orton though that Shawn did not count the three fast enough and let him know it. Triple H proceed to give Shawn an earful about it.
I could go on and on about the splendor of this event all night, but luckily for you, WWE RAW is on right now, so I am off to watch it as soon as I repeat how amazing this event was for myself and my family. Any WWE fan needs to attend a live event, especially a Pay Per View. This is an experience neither myself or my family will ever forget.
*Although I received complimentary tickets to this event, all opinions are 100% my own.*
