'WWE Hell In A Cell' Results: Barrett Wins, Kane Retains
Winner and still US Champion: Daniel Bryan
A promo for Legendary aired.
Sheamus entered the ring first followed by Orton, and we're off with the first of two Hell In A Cell matches.
After a couple of minutes of action, Sheamus took the advantage and springboarded off the ropes to shoulder tackle Orton. Sheamus tried to use the cage as a weapon and attempted to launch Orton into the Cell, but Orton blocked. Orton then tried to throw Sheamus into the cage but Sheamus reversed and threw Orton into the steel. Sheamus picked up the steel steps and threw them at Orton, but Orton moved and started driving Sheamus into the cage. Orton then hit Sheamus in the head with the steel steps and brought him back into the ring for a two count.
Sheamus regained the advantage and worked over Orton for several minutes inside the ring. Shemus then took the match outside of the ring and started grinding Orton's face in the cell. He then planted Orton on the steel steps and continued to dominate Orton outside of the ring before getting him back in and getting Orton in a body lock.
Orton was finally able to hit a back suplex and dodged a charge from Sheamus to regain the advantage. Orton continued to stay on offense and nailed a powerslam and belly to belly suplex for a two count. Orton then attempted an RKO, but Sheamus pushed Orton into the ropes and kneed him in the ribs to regain control.
Sheamus brought the steel steps into the ring and went to slam Orton onto them, but Orton was able to reverse and powerslam Sheamus into the steps and cover for a two count. Orton then went to DDT Sheamus on the steel steps, but Sheamus was able to avoid it. Orton then grabbed Sheamus by the neck and planted him with a DDT on the floor. As Sheamus got up Orton went for another RKO outside of the ring, but Sheamus was able to push Orton into the steel post to regain the advantage.
Sheamus brought Orton back in the ring and on top of the steel steps. Sheamus then hit a backbreaker and followed it up with a big boot to the face, but only got a two count. Sheamus then grabbed a steel chair from ringside and nailed Orton with it several times, but was only able to get another two count.
Sheamus went to nail Orton upside the head with a chair shot but Orton was able to dodge it and hit an RKO! Orton took a couple of moments to get back to his feet and then went outside of the ring. Sheamus rolled out of the ring as well and Orton went for a punt, but Sheamus dodged it and nailed Orton with another big boot to the face. Sheamus rolled Orton into the ring but again was only able to get a two count.
A frustrated Sheamus then dragged Orton onto the ring steps which are still in the center of the ring and signaled for the high cross, but Orton was able to counter and pull Sheamus' feet from underneath him. Orton then followed with an RKO onto the steel steps as Sheamus got back to his feet and got the three count! Really good match.
Winner and STILL WWE Champion: Randy Orton
After the match, Orton climbed to the top of the cage and celebrated on top of the cell.
In what might be a pre-cursor for later tonight, a Bragging Rights promo aired and the Nexus logo was featured in it.

Wade Barrett said that there was something in the air. He said he was going to win and that they were going to have a special gift for John Cena, which was a Nexus armband. He said that right now Cena is against them, but promises that he will be with them tomorrow night.
