Fiend Attacks After Raw
The main event of Hell in a Cell was received poorly by fans in the arena and at home. A fear coming out of it was that fans would cool on Bray Wyatt’s new Fiend character. Based on the reaction from the dark segment of Raw last night, that won’t be the case. The Fiend attacked Cesaro to a big reaction from fans.
