WWE official explains why he stopped the Hell in a Cell Universal Title Match: WWE’s The Bump


A big thing people are looking at is the
referee, and why the referee called what he did call, and I know-
>>What he didn’t call.>>Or what he didn’t call, and so I know
right now they’re telling us they have a quote that they want us to look
at from the referee of that match. So here you go with Bray motionless, and
Seth clearly doing whatever it was going to take to win that match, I had to
think of the competitor’s safety, and at that moment,
I did what I thought was best.>>I think I’m probably
in the minority here, but I think the referee did exactly
what he had to do in that moment. He has that shield on his chest,
which has been ironed on, the WWE logo, if he’s looking at this match in its
entirety, in this moment, there’s a man down on the ground incapacitated,
what are you supposed to do? People argue, well at King of
the Ring when Mankind got thrown off the top of the Undertaker,
the match continued. That was a long time ago. This is 2019, if you see someone down
I think it’s fair to be like, nope, let’s check this out, and see what else
we can do, because this guy is down for the count.>>Dan, it’s a Hell in a Cell match. The referee rang for
the bell in a Hell in a Cell match. It’s pretty rudimentary stuff. That’s not how you do it. It’s all on the ref. Not debatable. I know it’s a fun show, but it kind of
irks me, if I’m being quite honest.>>I mean, I don’t, I’m not happy with the
call that was made, but I think it, he->>[CROSSTALK]>>Be nice, be nice.>>Sorry Matt.>>Matt Camp was actually in the room for
watch along on Sunday, and you you were a part of this-
>>Yes, this was something.>>Yeah, this was.>>Let’s look at this.>>[CROSSTALK]
>>All right.>>He’s still the champ.>>You may not ask me back for
another one of these, but how the hell do you get
DQ’d in a freaking cell?>>I don’t know if he got DQ’d.>>Well, they’re raising the cell now, so.>>The referee may just called it. He can call stoppage, right?>>So here’s the deal, I’m in that room,
that clip has been everywhere, I’ve gotten a lot of tweets about it.>>Yeah, we were there.>>I have a somewhat of an officiating
background and I saw it right away, I said, that was a stoppage, okay? Thought it was a DQ,
it wasn’t, it was a stoppage. Now, that was the right call. Is it the call that I wanted to see,
that you at home wanted to see, that-
>>No.>>That the fans in
Sacramento wanted to see? No, it wasn’t. You wanted to see a pin fall,
or a submission, and something that was very
obvious in terms of a finish. We did not get that. I understand why people
are mad about that.>>I do too.>>At the same time, though,
in the 22 years of Hell in a Cell, including that one,
there has still been no DQs. It has not happened. There was no DQ there. Reacted as he did. I think he knows now what happened. It was not a DQ finish. The referee stopped the match,
because of whatever you want to say. He thought that Seth went too far,
and that ended of the match. Did Seth win? I don’t know.
Do you guys call that a victory?>>No, but yeah,
cuz it was very interesting. Like I said, be happy with the presence
you got throughout the night. Not that you didn’t get the big gift,
but think there is time. I know everyone’s upset, I know everyone’s disappointed, but
I think that by that happening, man, cuz a little bit of controversy is not
the worst thing that could happen to him.>>I think everyone is disappoionted. That’s not necessarily a bad thing. I mean, that’s the way it works in
professional wrestling, boxing, football, sports across the board. You’re not gonna always
get exactly what you want.

  1. Can we not forget how the fiend attacked seth right after the match was stopped like serious the match should of continued right there the cell should of been re lowered and we would of probably had a new champion, look at last years hell in a cell brock Lesnar beat down roman reigns and strowman and we got a no contest ending like seriously guys wwe needs to give the fans what they want to see

  2. There is really no excuse the how that match ended, I don't even understand why you would try and justify it one of the worst hell in a cell endings ever.

  3. What are you supposed to do when an opponent is unconscious in a HIAC Match? Nothing. There’s no rules. If the competitors safety is endangered, it’s their own fault for even getting in there to begin with. There’s no rules to stop the levels of extreme you can go. That’s like saying Tim White should’ve called off Mankind-Undertaker. That’s just hypocritical and asinine. Can this day possibly get any worse?

  4. Psssst hey guys come here….it’s entertainment and is meant to entertain…stop making stupid excuses here as if it’s real

  5. If the ref was concerned for their safety, why not call the match even before they stepped inside the cell? It’s called “Hell in a Cell” for a reason.

  6. Stop trying to justify it, this is a case of WWE screwing up and thinking they know better than fans who pay their money to watch these shows.

  7. Why are they trying to act like a stoppage is different then a DQ either way no match with “extreme rules” should be stopped & even kids know that

  8. The mask is Cheating everything that went on the mask (head) If Bray didn't mind but normal kicks already sry but without the mask Seth would have won long ago And don't complain because of my bad English I come from Germany

  9. No you booked yourselves against a wall and you didnt know how to back out! so now you put the pressure on the referee . RIDICULOUS- 3 LETTERS FOR YOU A.E.W!

  10. It’s 2019 ? Really, way to be safe there BoyScout . This is why WWE is garbage since they got away from Attitude era gimmick, only reason they are hanging on is because McMahon Pockets run deeper than the other guy . Take that away and WWE is just another name . We will see what happens after the XFL flops for a second time and see how deep those pockets are . Time will tell . But until then the show is garbage . Why I don’t watch Turn the channel to the other guy .

  11. What's more insulting to my intelligence, stopping match for "competitor safety" or DQ in a hell in a cell? Both the same to me

  12. The ref is a lifesaver!
    For the SAFETY!!!🤪
    Did the hammer really hit Bray?Did it?
    But whatever…
    Please don’t do such thing like that again,Vince!!!

  13. It’s 2019 and this is the 2nd time that a hell in the cell match ends with no winner that match has no disqualifications for a reason the term ANYTHING GOES means you can do whatever you want in that match the WWE is just irritating

  14. This attempt at damage control is pathetic. First idea is to not reference it on raw, keep both guys off the show and act like nothing happened. Second idea is to now acknowledge it, blame the referee and have these nobodies take the fall on YouTube. Can't wait to see where this is by Monday.

  15. All wwe had to do was 1 thing…not hotshot the fiend by booking him into a title match and now they just keep adding fuel to the fire by trying to damage control and defend the finish 😂😂😂😂

  16. The Ref stop the match in a Hell in a Cell match because The fiend was motionless meanwhile Mick Folloy was thrown from the Cell and they continue the match this is why people hate Vince Even his most loyal fans hated it to the point they chanted AEW

  17. Legends like undertaker and kane should advise Vince about the importance of fiend character of bray , because their character was also dark but was given the desired importance back in the day

  18. Today on 30 bucks I get to get mega baked , play some casual magic where we all set like we need a rule print out and run away to comics and Boldly go then anything extra I can throw in the box.abd I'll take on your show. I mean I'm picking the 300 pounders up and ripping shows ankle Inwards to the other foot.

  19. "Care for their safety" unfortunately nowadays there's lawsuits going for anything that causes serious injuries to wrestlers or from TV networks.

  20. Um guys, I understand they made a huge oof, but what did you expect them to do? Pretend it didn’t happen? This is the first step to giving a bad event some context and I think that’s okay. Y’all can stop going mental now

  21. Hey WWE if you're gonna be this sensitive with hell in a cell matches then don't have them at all anymore the PPV name is stupid

  22. WTF?! IT IS NOT YOUR DECISION TO STOP A NO DQ HIAC MATCH JUST BECAUSE OF THE SUPERSTARS’ “safety”! YOU SHOULD JUST DO YOUR FRICKEN’ GODDAMNED JOB AND CONTROL THE MATCH, IDIOT!?!? AND, BESIDES, THESE SUPERSTARS WILL NEVER CARE ABOUT YOUR SAFETY!?!??!

  23. So with that being said… It means… that Bray was too bad to protect himself so the Referee had to pull a Referee Stoppage to keep the Fiend alive.
    Thats even worse than a No Contest or a DQ. I mean… with that being the case… Rollins won clean. I mean KO won clean when he won the NXT Title from Zayn via Referee Stoppage.

  24. Shane McMahon has jumped off the hell in a cell and nobody stop anything!!!! And that was only a few years ago WWE book themselves in a stupid situation in which they didn't know how to get out of it

  25. Stop liying wwe you anit getting out of this you let shane jump off a cell let mankind get thorwn off and they did not get dq but seth hitting the fiend with a tool box and stuff and calling it a dq i think you guys don't want the fiend to be.champship

  26. Yeah its 2019, we all know what wrestling is but we like to think "is real". So don't give us is 2019 cause we all know that the ending was BS no matter what u said

  27. Nobody cares about your stupid apology at this point in time. Just because your views have slumped and you can't sell out arenas anymore.

  28. "No one is always happy with the results of football or boxing" Right, because it's not like this is some kind of predetermined sport or anything <<

  29. What BS. It got everyone pissed off. If Wyatt wasn’t ready to be champion than why have the match. A hell in a cell match has no DQ. Like the way to end it would be Rollins pinning Wyatt or the room goes dark and Wyatt disappears

  30. No matter which way they try to clarify it, it’s still was a wrong call by wwe. Hell in cell is meant for anything goes there is no rules in that match type, what is the point of hell in the cell if there is going to be wrong calls like that being made?

  31. I hope / expect Mr Vollmayer was well compensated for his particularly cringe inducing defense of total rubbish !!

  32. Wwe , your not getting out of this , what you guys did was stupid . I mean how did you get dq in a hell in the cell, makes no sense.

  33. The reason why that call 2as stupid is because Seth hit Fiend with everything else he could get his hands on but ref decides that sledgehammer was too much?…not only that but that stupid red lighting looked terrible so nothing about this match was good from beginning to end!..They protected Seth from the audience Monday but even these WWE fans that accept anything are going boo hell out of Rollins when he shows up live!!

  34. guys just think if this man rod Zapata was made the referee in
    following hiac matches –
    taker vs mankind
    taker vs hbk
    taker vs hhh( end of an era)
    hhh vs cactus jack
    hhh vs hbk
    He would sure as hell gonna ruin these great classic matches of all time

    AND IF BRAY WYATT WAS UNRESPONSIVE HOW AND THE HELL HE GOT UP AND ATTACKED
    SETH ROLLINS
    WWE BOOKING TEAM SUCKS

  35. Well people we are now living within the work of bad booking. You build the fiend to be a unstoppable Force and book him on Seth who you don't want to lose..and your surprised by the screwy outcome? Vince seriously just give the damn title to the fiend that night demanded it. Ya screwed up. Fix it.

  36. How much Mick Foley would have felt disrespected he almost gaved up his life to make hiac matches famous and WWE has totally ruined hell in a cell
    and this man Dan vollmayer says that was a long time back alright
    how about Shane McMahon falled from the top Of The cell in 2016 and 2017 that was not decades ago.
    if this type of booking will continue
    then of course aew is going to beat wwe

  37. YOU WANT THE ONE WITH THE GLASSES NEED TO SHUT UP THE ONE WITH THE GLASSES ME TO SHUT UP MANKIND ALMOST RISK HIS LIFE YOU GUYS HAS ANYTING TO SAY ABOUT THAT OR I DON'T THINK SO SHUT SHUT UP 20-19 IS TRASH YOUR COMPANY IS TRASH BECAUSE OF YOUR FREAKING BOSS YOUR BOSS TOLD THE REFEREE TO STOP AND THAT'S A FACT END. AND ALL THE SUDDEN BRAY WYATT SISTER ABIGAIL OUTSIDE YOU STILL DIDN'T RESTART THE MASH HE DID NOT SAY ANYTHING ABOUT BRAY WYATT GOT UP AND NOWHERE AND SISTER ABIGAIL SETH ROLLINS OUTSIDE THE RING AND STILL DIDN'T RESET WHY YOU CAN'T TALK ABOUT THAT HUH WHY!!AND BRAY WYATT WAS NOT MEDICALLY CLEARED AND HE LOOKED FINE TO MEAT HELL IN THE CELL AND WENT WRONG WITH OFF THE AIR WHEN HE SISTER ABIGAIL'S CESARO AND SETH ROLLINS SETH ROLLINS WAS A TIRE B** FOR NOT SHOWING UP ON MONDAY NIGHT RAW BECAUSE YOU GOT BOOED OUT OF THERE VINCE MCMAHON WAS SCARED SCARED OF THE RISK OF SUFFERING IS GOING OUT THERE I BET SETH ROLLINS WAS BACKSTAGE THE ENTIRE RAW

  38. Motionless? So laying motionless isn't just part of the act wwe? What a joke. They're acting like it isn't totally scripted.

  39. So why didn't the Ref restart the match as soon as Bray got up afterwards and was fine and dandy? WWE Clowns trying to explain their bs logic .

  40. I could talk about the finish of the match and theories as to what it actually might mean compared to the majorities opinion. There's two things I would say. Why anyone thought this video would help address the finish is beyond me. A kayfabe AKA WWE pro opinion talk video about the situation is obviously just adding to fire. This was pointless. Two, I know people are wanting to say that they want to move on to AEW (Which is fair) and that The Fiend is dead but I'm still invested in Bray. From what I know from Instagram posts and interviews from Braun, Bray took a mental break before coming back with the FunHouse segments. He was really low and then he was able to come up with the Funhouse gimmick and everything changed for him. He has a newborn and just wants to create a legacy for his family to be proud of. Knowing that, I will not give up on Bray and if you are a fan of this version of the Persona, you shouldn't either. Please continue to support the Fiend and hopefully his character continues to stay strong. I'm not saying this to continue to support WWE as a whole, but just to keep the hype for the Fiend so hopefully they still do more for him. I want a good success story for my guy Bray, he deserves it.
