• Vince McMahon Knows He Messed Up, Backstage Reaction To Hell In A Cell 2019 Finish
According to Fightful, people who were around Vince McMahon backstage at Hell In A Cell 2019 have described to them that Vince knows he messed up with the finish to the Universal Title Hell in a Cell match between Seth Rollins and “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt.
According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, people backstage in WWE thought the match was a disaster:
“I haven’t seen anyone defend it — I really haven’t heard anything from anybody there [about the finish] other than ‘it’s a disaster’ and that’s an understatement.
You know the sun will rise tomorrow you know they pi$$ed a lot of people off. I don’t know how bad it’s gonna be. I don’t know what to say, the show sucked.”
