‘WWE Hell in a Cell 2015′ PPV Recap & Review

by Phil Wheat

Hell in a Cell is a pay per view that has spawned some classic WWE matches over the years. But since the end of the Attitude Era, and in particular the more “hardcore” style of wrestling, the idea of two men fighting in a cage seems to have lost steam within the company. Especially in […]
