A brutal match between WWE champion Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre was not only the main event of Sunday's Hell in a Cell pay-per-view, but also the highlight of the show.

The championship clash between Lashley and McIntyre inside Hell in a Cell was one of many matches from the event that exceeded expectations.

Bayley (Hell in a Cell): Bayley went on the attack early and brought a chair into the equation but missed on her first swing, allowing Belair to get a few quick near falls.

Bayley kept the attack focused on the arm before binging the steel steps into the ring.

Good stuff, though maybe a little short of some lofty expectations given Belair's incredible athleticism and Bayley's experience inside Hell in a Cell.

A Cesaro deadlift suplex led to Rollins having to dump Cesaro to the outside with a backdrop and a springboard knee for a two count.

Sami Zayn: Owens took the fight right to Zayn to get the match started, but Zayn used a few underhanded tactics to get rolling offensively until he failed to suplex Owens, allowing Owens to reverse before a cannonball in the corner for a two count.

After attacking Owens' arm and driving his throat -- still affected by the Nigerian Nail of Commander Azeez -- into the ropes, Zayn hit a big flipping dive over the top rope onto Owens on the outside.

Owens fought back with a clothesline on the outside and tried a swanton from the ring apron but Zayn got his knees up to counter and hit a blue thunder bomb back in the ring for a near fall.

As the action spilled to the outside, Owens hit a stunner and Zayn barely beat the 10 count to stay alive.

Ripley, now dealing with an injured leg from the focused attack of Flair, managed to hit a superplex for a two count as the momentum continued to swing wildly.

Flair went for an attack in the corner but Ripley moved out of the way, allowing her to hit a Riptide but too close to the ropes, allowing Flair to get her foot on the bottom rope.

Ripley then pulled off the top of the commentary table and hit Flair with it, resulting in a disqualification and allowing Ripley to retain her title.

Ripley continued the attack after the bell, eventually laying out Flair with another Riptide.

Drew McIntyre (Hell in a Cell): Lashley immediately dove from the ring to try and pull something from under the ring but McIntyre followed, driving Lashley's face into the Cell before slamming him into the wall.

Lashley fired back, using the ring steps but McIntyre lifted him up for a suplex and launched him into the Cell wall before grabbing the ring steps and twice ramming them into Lashley's head.

The two big men continued to attack each other outside the ring, with Lashley suffering a cut on his arm.

As McIntyre set up a table, MVP slid his cane through the Cell, allowing Lashley to get the upper hand once again.

After being rammed into the cage and the ring post several times by Lashley, McIntyre came back with his own version of Sheamus' White Noise on the ring steps.

Lashley fought back, using the ring steps to ram McIntyre into the Cell wall over and over before MVP helped trap McIntyre in the corner by sliding a kendo stick through the chain link.

Lashley brought McIntyre back into the ring and set up a chair before driving McIntyre into it with a pair of flatliners.

Lashley hit McIntyre with a kendo stick several times until McIntyre trapped it with his arm and used a chair before being shoved into the referee, who was knocked out of the ring.

McIntyre demanded a new referee enter the Cell before laying Lashley out with a Claymore.

MVP then found himself locked inside the Cell and on the receiving end of a McIntyre attack, ending in a Claymore.

McIntyre was distracted enough to allow Lashley to lock in the Hurt Lock outside the ring but McIntyre launched himself backward through a table to break the hold.

Back in the ring, McIntyre lined up another Claymore after using a steel chair to attack Lashley but Lashley was able to duck out of the way and send McIntyre through a table at ringside with a chokeslam.

McIntyre countered a spear from Lashley and hit another Future Shock and went for a Claymore only to have MVP grab his leg to set up Lashley for a roll-up to steal the win.

Good, violent stuff from two bruisers and a refreshing edition of Hell in a Cell that didn't require a big bump from the top or side of the cage, even if it was another match on the night with an odd finish.
