WWE Hell in a Cell 2011 DVD Review

WWE Hell in a Cell 2011 DVD Cover

© 2011 WWE, Inc. All Rights Reserved.
Hell in a Cell 2011 featured two Hell in a Cell matches. The first saw Mark Henry defend the World Heavyweight Championship against Randy Orton. The second featured John Cena defend the WWE Championship against Alberto Del Rio and CM Punk.

What I Said Then: Call me old-fashioned if you wish, but I prefer my Hell in a Cell matches to mean something. I think that a match should only take place inside of that structure to end a blood feud, not because the calendar says October.

While not a horrible event, with the exception of the final bout, there was nothing on the show that felt like a PPV quality match. If you missed this show, I think you made the right move but if you did order it you shouldn't feel ripped off either. If you are on the fence about ordering the replay, I would suggest waiting for the DVD to come out.

Has My Opinion Changed? No.

Overall Recommendation:
This is worth a rental and not a bad way to spend three hours. However, I would recommend that if you are a fan of the Hell in a Cell Match to buy the Hell in a Cell DVD set that featured 14 of the first 16 Hell in a Cell Matches from 1997 - 2007 before buying this DVD.
