After a lengthy feud that has resulted in some hard-hitting matches between Drew McIntyre and Randy Orton, it was all to end during tonight's Hell in a Cell. While we're not sure if it is the end of the feud just yet, it did shock everyone when Orton managed to avoid the claymore kick and RKO McIntyre for the win and pin, making him a 14 time WWE Champion. Fans didn't take long to weigh in on the match, and the results are a bit all over the map, with some loving the match and others not very happy with the results, and you can check them out starting on the next slide.
The biggest positives of the match seem to be how physical a matchup it was and how the two took the match to the top of the Cell at one point. As for the negatives, it was a bit slow throughout, and while it was physical it wasn't exactly creative.
Many fans also couldn't help but compare it to the Cell match that came before between Sasha Banks vs Bayley, which tore the house down and was a match many called match of the night.

Some aren't a fan of the direction, as taking the belt off of McIntyre closes the door to some great matches.
You could’ve had a phenomenal storyline with The Fiend and Drew McIntyre for the title... or you could’ve opened up a door for the Miz for him to cash in... the fact that you put the belt back on Randy Orton even after Drew beat him twice is completely mind boggling! #WWEHIAC— GangGreen David (@GangGreenDavid1) October 26, 2020

Turning Back Time

"Oh gods, looks like we're going back to 2010 #HIAC2020 #hiac #WWEHIAC"prevnext
Others are over the moon that Orton is now the top guy in WWE.
"OMG, Finally 14x WWE World Heavyweight Champion FireFireFire

Not The Main Event
Others couldn't help but look at Sasha vs Bayley as the match that really owned the night and the match that should've been in the main event spot.
Gotts be honest the main event was allright for the most part but sasha vs bayley should have been the main event.. tho..#WWEHIAC— chaseheidenreich (@chaseheidenrei5) October 26, 2020

Others thought not only the match delivered but the feud as a whole and were happy to see Orton with the title.
"Orton vs McIntyre was incredible. Both guys have it their all in this feud. Drew is one tough bastard after that match I gotta say. Randy finally getting that much deserved 14th wwe title he’s been the best wrestler of 2020. #WWEHIAC"prevnext
Others weren't sold on the match, calling it a snooze fest when compared to the barn burner match that came earlier in the night.
"You really gave us a snooze fest for the main event when Sasha and Bayley tore it down and stole the show? What kind of shit is this? #HIAC2020 #WWEHIAC"prev
