Backstage Reason WWE Is Stacking The Deck For The Hell In A Cell PPV

Posted by Matt Boone October 8, 2013 7 Comments

The reason is stacking the deck so heavily at the upcoming pay-per-view is due to reported concerns that they may have alienated their pay-per-view buying audience with the way they have handled the main event situation on the past couple of pay-per-views.

As noted previously, fans demanded refunds following the recent WWE pay-per-view due to the fact that they paid for a finish that was completely erased and overturned less than 24 hours later on the free WWE television show that followed the next night. Additionally, fans were loudly chanting “refund, refund” after the non-finish to Sunday’s WWE pay-per-view in Buffalo.

Due to the fact that WWE has handled the main events, which are what pay-per-views are largely sold on, so poorly at their last few shows, the feeling in the company is they need to regain that trust with their pay-per-view buying audience at Hell In A Cell, which is why there seems to be such emphasis on guaranteeing a legitimate finish in the main event, as well as other major selling points to support it underneath. Basically, the company is stacking the deck so heavily that it pretty much guarantees that anyone who buys the show this time will get their money’s worth.

For those reasons, WWE has brought back earlier than expected for a match against , as well as guaranteed a new WWE Champion in the third-straight pay-per-view main event between and . While they basically guaranteed a winner for the same match at Battleground, they are stressing that this match will be in a Hell In A Cell, which assures viewers that there will be no outside interference, and they have as a special guest referee to give further confidence to their fans that there will be a legitimate outcome this time around.
