Edge Beats Seth Rollins In a Hot Opener

Seth Rollins defeated Edge in a fantastic Hell in a Cell Match to open WWE Crown Jewel 2021. The match featured multiple table bumps, including Rollins bouncing off the cell and through a table in addition to a sunset bomb by Rollins off a ladder through a table. The finish came when Edge put Rollins down with a slightly mistimed Curb Stomp on a chair to end an otherwise hot opener before a lively Saudi crowd.

Seth Rollins vs. Edge kicked off Crown Jewel 2021 and was one of many high-profile matches on this card that mirrored a WrestleMania-caliber feud. What’s more, is the long-term built up culminated in a Hell in a Cell match. As opposed to being shoehorned into a Hell in a Cell match due to an annual pay-per-view, Rollins and Edge organically built to one of WWE’s most-famed stipulations. The hit-or-miss heel Rollins pushed Edge to challenge him to Hell in a Cell after he invaded Edge’s house in a bizarre segment on the October 1 broadcast of SmackDown.

Edge and Rollins’ previous two matches, which also took place on big stages, were well received. Their first clash came in a show-stealing match at SummerSlam 2021 that many would argue was the best match on the show from Allegiant Stadium. An Edge vs. Rollins rematch happened during SmackDown’s record-breaking return to Madison Square Garden as Edge was stretchered out following a Rollins win.

Given how physical and personal this feud has become, Hell in a Cell seemed like the only fitting ending to this saga on WWE’s biggest money show of the year.

Though this match has blowoff written all over it, both Edge and Rollins have been drafted to Raw and could theoretically continue this feud, however anything past a Hell in a Cell rubber match seems like overkill. After spending the past year-plus on SmackDown, both Rollins and Edge will have a welcomed change of scenery and fresh opponents on Monday nights, and Raw could certainly use the star power.

Up against stiff competition, in the form of Monday Night Football and the MLB Playoffs, Raw has struggled of late. Coming off a string of hot-shot shows, Raw has struggled of late. The past two weeks of the Monday night flagship has drawn the sixth and seventh-lowest viewership in the history of the show, with this past Monday’s show posting a record-low in the 18-49 demo with a 0.39 rating, or 510,000 viewers.
