WWE Hell in a Cell 2020 was an absolute cracker of a pay-per-view. There were a lot of hearts broken and lines crossed inside that ominous Steel Cage. The main result of the event was that there were a lot of records broken and made on the night.
You may have not picked up on it during the intense matches between Roman Reigns and Jey Uso or Sasha Banks and Bayley, but there were some big jumps made in the record book.
For starters, the new WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Sasha Banks became the first-ever female Superstar to win all the possible titles of WWE’s Women’s division under a Calendar year.
This includes her reigns as Women’s Tag Team Champion along with Bayley and her brief reigns as Raw Women’s Champion. To top it off, she is now the SmackDown Women’s Champion.
Moreover, this was only the third ever Woman’s Hell in a Cell match in WWE. This is the third consecutive year that has featured the female Superstars inside the steel cage.
She proved who the real worker in the “Golden Role Models” team was. Bayley was left questioning her decisions while her former best friend made history.
Another highlight of the night was Randy Orton’s victory over Drew McIntyre in the main event of the show. “The Legend Killer” outsmarted his opponent and sealed the win with a big RKO.
He is now the new WWE Champion and also moved boundaries with the win. Orton is now a 14-time Champion. He has achieved such a feat through his many years of being in WWE.
Orton is now tied with Triple H in the third position for most title reigns in WWE history. He is only behind WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair and Superstar John Cena who are both tied at 16 Championships.
“The Viper” looks to become the most decorated Superstar of all time for WWE by topping this record. He has quite a few years left and is still in his prime. Another 3 title wins seem easy for a man like Randy Orton.
The last record of the night was surprisingly set by Otis. The big man lost his Money in the Bank contract to The Miz after a huge betrayal from his best friend Tucker.
Otis is now only the second Superstar in WWE history to lose his Money in the Bank contract after Mr Kennedy in 2007. The loss means that he will never get the sweet opportunity of cashing in his briefcase and the whole thing will go down as what could have been.
These records aren’t light at all and really sum up just how good WWE storytelling is. At young ages, these Superstars are already future Hall of Famers, and will definitely break a lot more records before hanging up their boots.
