Mick Foley Defends Screwy Hell In A Cell Finish
The finish to last night’s WWE Hell In A Cell PPV has caused some controversy on social media. The main event Dean Ambrose vs Seth Rollins match ended when Wyatt creeped in to the ring when the lights went out and attacked Ambrose. This allowed Rollins to get the victory, and will most likely set up a feud between Ambrose and Wyatt starting on tonight’s RAW.
While it wasn’t a clean finish, WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley says it doesn’t mean it was bad.
“THINK OF THE PROMOS! Don’t let the bizarre ending to #HellInACell get you down,” Tweeted the Hardcore Legend. “It was a great PPV…and just think of the promos! I think this is the type of thing that will bring out the best in both men.”
