Crowds Were Chanting Refunds after WWE’s Hell in a Cell PPV
This match has been teased for awhile now and WWE creatives had two points that they need to address. (a) they need to continue to make Bray Wyatt look strong and (b) continue to have Rollins as WWE Universal Champion until the next main PPV.
The match had some good spots but it did end in a ridiculous finish with the officials calling the match a non-contest and disqualifying Wyatt for using a sledgehammer on Rollins. Rollins retains the title while Wyatt continues looking “strong” because he hasn’t been pinned by anybody from the WWE Universe yet.
But here’s how people reacted to the ending of the match…

There were even some Twitter posts with videos showing the crowds either chanting “AEW” or “Refund”, the latter hurts more than the former to be honest.

In the video below, you can hear the people shouting “Boo”, with the person taking the video sarcastically saying “Best Pay Per View Ever”. There’s also somebody who outright says “This Sucks”.

Man. WWE and Vince McMahon needs some explaining to do. Seth Rollins is also clearly becoming the new pre-sabbatical Roman Reigns in terms of heat with the fans.
